One of the worst homeowner problems is a slab leak. Slab leaks are breaks or crack in water pipes that are within your home’s foundation. Slab leaks will eventually lead to costly foundation problems and structural damages resulting from foundation shifts. Slab leaks are a common problem to residents and businesses throughout Bonita, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Chula Vista, Encinitas, La Jolla, Lakeside, Oceanside, Poway, Rancho Bernardo, and Rancho Santa Fe.
Do you think you have a slab leak? Some indicators of a potential slab leak are:
- Abnormal water bill increase
- In explainable moisture on your flooring
- Low water pressure
- Noticeable cracks or shifting in your foundation
- Odd mold growth
- Slight or obvious running water sounds when all water fixtures are off
- Wet floors and carpets
