What’s a Slab Leak?
The slab, in this context, refers to your home’s foundation. Homes either have a basement or crawl space or are built on a concrete slab. In homes built on a concrete slab, plumbing and piping systems run underneath or are encased in the slab foundation.
Though rare, these pipelines can become old, brittle, or compromised and start to leak and damage the flooring in your home. If they do, you could have serious foundation damage and a variety of plumbing complications. This makes it essential to identify and repair slab leaks as quickly as possible.
What Are the Signs of a Slab Leak?
There are many effective ways to identify a potential slab leak, and you should be made aware of all of them. If you notice any of these signs, our plumbers recommend you call for leak detection immediately:
- Inexplicable spikes in your water bill
- Wet spots, dark patches, or signs of mold along first-floor flooring or baseboard moldings
- Carpet that seems damp all the time in one area
- Poor water pressure throughout the home
- Worsening cracks along baseboards or wood flooring
- The sound of moving water when no fixtures are currently being used
- Dank, musty, or fetid odors in your home on the first floor
- Standing water along the exterior base of your home

Expert Slab Leak Repair
How the repair is handled differs depending on where the pipes are, the type of piping in question, and the complexity of replacing or repairing the line. Often, a simple pipe repair and replacement will suffice.
In more complex situations, a plumber may need to run an alternative line, often done using PEX, which will safely reroute the water line away from the slab or go down through the flooring into the slab concrete and make a repair.
With the equipment and training we have at Three Way Plumbing, we’ll pinpoint within 2 feet the area where the leak is under the floor and concrete slab. This prevents you from having to tear up all your floors and break up the concrete to determine where the leak is.
This is helpful because water travels, and although you may have a wet spot coming up through your floor, the leak may not originate from that spot.
Slab leaks are serious trouble. Call today or schedule plumbing repair online to connect with a skilled plumbing contractor for slab leak repair.
