Slab Leak Repair in Gilbert & the East Valley, Arizona

What Is a Slab Leak? Let Our Gilbert Plumbers Explain.

A slab leak occurs in a water line beneath the concrete, whereas a leak that occurs above the floor is a "pinhole leak." These types of leaks can be more difficult to correct as they are less accessible. In addition, it is important to address a slab leak right away as ignoring the problem could lead to long-term damage.

Signs that could indicate a slab leak beneath your home or business include:

  • Water marks or wet spots on the floor
  • Water stains or wet spots on the walls
  • Spots on your floor that are abnormally hot or cold or a different color
  • Cracks in the wall
  • Moldy or stale odors
  • Sounds of water running or dripping
  • Abnormally high water bills

Tips for Finding out Whether or Not You Have a Slab Leak

You’ll know you have a slab leak when you start to see water coming up through the floor. Our Gilbert plumbers can help you identify these right away. A hot water line that has burst will cause your floor to feel warm or hot to the touch. You may also see buckling in hardwood floors, water drops on your walls, and other signs of water damage. In some cases, the clearest and only sign of a slab leak is a sudden spike in your water bills.

If you suspect that you may have a slab leak due to any of the above reasons, you can test your theory in an easy way. Simply turn off all of the water sources in your house—toilets, faucets, water heaters, sinks, showers, dishwashers, laundry machines, tubs, and so on. Then take a look at your water meter. If it is still spinning, this is a clear indication of a leak.

Of course, the best way to find out what’s going on is to contact a knowledgeable, professional plumber from Leak Dr. Plumbing LLC. Our Gilbert plumber can take a look at your home or business and utilize special equipment to detect any leak that may be occurring!
