What is a slab leak?

A slab leak is an crack or pin hole leak that has developed within an underground water line.


What causes slab leaks?

The most often a cause of a slab leak is by improperly installed piping.


What other causes are behind slab leaks?

  • Commonly high water pressure is a significant contributor to slab leaks by way of the undue stress "excessive" pressure placed on the water system
  • Thermal Expansion is another source for causes of many of slab leaks. It is more common for slab leaks to be on the hot water system side because of the continual expansion/contraction of the pipes during the heating of water.
  • Hard water and elevated PH levels also been known to contribute to slab leaks. If you have experienced multiple slab leaks installing a water conditioning system may be the solution.
  • Another source could be hot soil or contaminated soil which can lead to pipe failure.


What are the warning signs of an underground slab leak?

  • High water bills
  • High gas bills
  • Warm floors
  • Musty/Mildew smells
  • Warped wood floors or baseboards
  • The constant sound of running water even with no water fixtures in use
  • The water heater is constantly in heating mode


How can I determine if I have a leak?

  • One of the simplest way to determine if you have a slab leak is to mark and record your water meter.  Go to the water meter and note the digits on the dial.  Allow for 30 minutes or so to pass. If the dial moves and the reading increases  YOU HAVE A LEAK


  • Another way to determine if a leak exists is by way of shutting off your water and allowing a few minutes to pass. If the water system charges back up when you turn the system back on CHANCES are you have a leak.


Are slab leaks and the resulting water damage covered under my Homeowner Insurance?

It is always best that you refer to your particular insurance policy and written coverage. However, the majority of insurance companies will not cover plumbing. They will cover the resulting water damage on the premise that the leak is a result of a sudden burst or break.


Some insurance carriers will cover the cost associated with locating, accessing and the put back of concrete involved in repairing the actual leak (they won't cover the cost associated with the actual pipe repair).


What is best? A direct repair of the slab leak via the concrete removal and repair, or a above ground pipe re-route?

It is always best to re-route or repipe the water system. It is common that if you have had one leak the chances of another leak occurring is high. By eliminating the underground piping you greatly reduce the chances of another flood to your home.


How can I protect my home from having a slab leak or plumbing problems in general?

  • When it comes to the homes water system it is critical to always maintain your water pressure below 70 psi. The installation of a water pressure regulator will ensure that the pressure remains at or below 70 psi. However, please keep in mind that pressure regulators due fail as well, as such, as a preventive measure you should check or have your water pressure checked at least once a year.


  • Another way that can offer plumbing protection for the home is to have your water supply tested for high levels of hardness. If you are in an area with hard water you give serious consideration to the installation of a water conditioning system. Along with protecting your piping system "water conditioners" protect your complete plumbing system inlcluding faucets, fixtures, dishwashers, shower doors, and you. It will make your showers/baths pleasant again.


  • One of the most misunderstood causes behind slab leaks is thermal expansion. Thermal Expansion occurs during the heating cycle of the tank type water heater. As the water heats "it expands" just like a tea kettle builds steam as its cooked: the water in your water heater does the same. The pressure builds up and places undue stress on your water system. The frequent expansion and contraction created during the heating cycle can lead to pipe movement and "ultimately" leaks.  The expansion and contraction process exerts tremendous wear on the pipes. Installing a thermal expansion tank or some form of protective device - will eliminate this very misunderstood problem.
