Ask a Sacramento Plumbing Expert How to Detect a Slab Leak

Published on December 10, 2013

Do You Recognize the Signs of a Slab Leak?


Have you thought very much about slab leaks before? It’s okay if you haven’t in the past, but now you probably should. And a good starting place is learning what a slab leak is – it’s a leak in one of the water lines that runs below the concrete floor and makes its way up through the foundation, into your home.

If it sounds horrible, that’s because, unfortunately, it is. Leaving a slab leak unattended for too long results in your walls and flooring becoming ruined, having a lingering musty smell throughout your home, along with other annoying, unnecessary disruptions.

In order to prevent serious damage from occurring in your home or business, you need to know what to look for so you can get a slab leak repaired as soon as it appears.

Signs You Have a Slab Leak

  1. Do you hear running water, even though no fixtures are turned on?
  2. Do you notice you have a higher water bill and you know it’s not because the rates went up?
  3. Do you see hot spots on your floors?
  4. Do you see cracks in your walls or floors?
  5. Do you have mildew, mold, or excessive moisture forming under the carpets?


If the answer is yes to any of the above questions, then you need to call in our team of expert plumbers. Why us, you ask?  Because at Boyd Plumbing, we have the technology and the know-how to take care of your slab leak without ruining your property.

Breaking into the slab is an unneeded mess, and we won’t put you through that. We have leak detection technology that will properly place the source of a leak and give us all the information we need to determine the best course of repair – all while keeping your home intact.

The best method of repair we would suggest is epoxy pipe lining. Again, instead of tearing open walls and floors, we will replace the broken pipe by relining the inside with a coating that is completely inert. This process will stop all future pipe corrosion and should help prevent you from having another slab leak in the future.

Choose the company that will repair your slab leak in the least destructive way possible, while also being quick and efficient. Call Boyd Plumbing today!
