Slab Leak Detection
L.A. Master Plumbers are experts in slab leak detection and repair
Slab leaks, aka foundation leaks, occur when sub-floor piping in your home’s concrete slab foundation develops a leak. Because the water is leaking out under the floor where you can’t see it, slab leaks can be difficult to detect. Fortunately, you can rely on the experts from L.A. Master Plumbers to detect slab leaks for you and repair them in a quick and effective manner.
Signs You Might Have a Slab Leak
Some of the most common signs of a slab leak include:
- A sudden increase in your water bill
- The sound of water running when no one is using the plumbing
- Warm spots in the concrete floor
- New cracks in walls or floors
- Wet areas near the foundation outside
- Water on the floor
Remember, it’s somewhat rare to actually see the water from the slab leak on the floor, so if you do notice standing water or damp spots the problem may be quite serious. Call us immediately for emergency help.
