Slab leaks occur in two places, either the incoming water line or the sanitary sewer line. Both of these are imbedded in the foundation of your home. Slab leaks cause massive damage to the foundation of your home, and each source of a slab leak has its own probable causes.
There are several symptoms you can check for in detecting a slab leak:
The sound of running water when no water should be running
A hot spot on the floor could indicate a hot water line leak
Cracks in walls or floor are a common sign of slab leak
Mildew and excessive moisture under carpets could indicate your slab is cracked and the pipes inside are leaking water
High water bills could also indicate slab leak. Although a high water bill could indicate a water leak behind the wall, or in your pool, plumbing under the slab is also suspect.
