Even when your plumbing systems seem to be running normally, Hernandez Plumbing knows to look for common warning signs of a slab leak. If you notice any of the following in your home, a problem may be present and it’s time to call the professionals at Hernandez Plumbing for a slab leak repair or detection:
Signs You May Have a Slab Leak
- Is your water bill unusually high?
If there are no apparent signs of a leak inside your home (i.e., water stains), there is a possibility that a leak is present underneath your home’s slab foundation. An unexpectedly high water bill could indicate a broken or leaky pipe somewhere in your home. Call the slab leak repair experts at Hernandez Plumbing right away to have your slab foundation inspected and avoid further damage.
- Feeling moisture throughout the floors and other surfaces in your home?
Perhaps the most straightforward way to detect a slab leak is by feeling it through the surfaces and foundation of your home. Concrete is porous and will absorb moisture. If this is the case, you’ll want to call Hernandez Plumbing immediately for slab leak repair on your home.
- Hear water running even when all water is turned off?
Your home should only be running water if the systems are on. If you hear running, dripping, leaking, or other unusual noises while your water is off, give us a call before it’s too late.
- Smelling sewage?
If you are smelling sewage or abnormal smells in your home, there may be a broken sewer or drain line underground or beneath your foundation. This may be causing damage to your home’s slab foundation, resulting in a slab leak. Call Hernandez Plumbing to come to investigate the problem today and get a slab leak repair estimate.
