If you have never heard of a slab leak, good. A slab leak is a monstrous repair job that requires uprooting a lot of your home’s foundation to get to the piping underneath. This is necessary in order to replace burst pipes that have leaked beneath your floors and behind your walls. If the slab leak is not taken care of, mold, sinkholes, and the cracking foundation will occur. Slab leaks can be hard to pinpoint exactly where they are behind the foundation, so plumbers use special slab leak detection equipment to find and repair it. If you live in Pasadena, San Fernando, and Tujunga, CA and need slab leak detection services, call Twin Town Plumbing and Rooter at (818) 748-8615.
How Do You Detect a Slab Leak?
While slab leaks are hard to see with your eyes, there are other ways to identify it using your other senses. If you hear running water even when all the faucets are turned off, that is because water is leaking out of the burst pipes behind your slab or foundation. Look for mold on your floors, ceiling, and walls. Mold only grows in water, and an abundance of mold can tell you where an abundance of water is leaking in your slab. Unexplained spikes in your water bill can also clue you into a leak. For slab leak detection in Pasadena, San Fernando, and Tujunga, CA, call our team at (818) 748-8615.
