Do you have water leaking outside your home or out of the concrete or tile of your house? Slab leaks are leaks which occur under the foundation of your home.

At Ken's Plumbing & Heating, our Nassau County leak detection technicians are trained in the detection and repair of slab leaks. Whether you have a minor leak or a serious problem, it is important to fix them before foundation repairs become necessary.

The most common signs that you have a slab leak include:

Types of Slab Leaks

There are two major type of slab leaks, which are leaks which occur in water lines and sewer leaks. We have special equipment and training which allow us to quickly find leaks under your slab, identify the source of the problem, and fix them before further damage is done. Repairing your slab leak as quickly as possible is important, not only to prevent foundation damage, but to cut down on the expensive water waste.

What Causes A Slab Leak

Slab leaks are caused by a variety of factors, but the primary cause is corrosion of pipes due to age or materials used in their construction. Other factors that can contribute to slab leaks include shifting soil, poor installation practices, water pressure fluctuations, and ground movement due to earthquakes or other natural occurrences. Leaking or broken joints and fittings can also lead to slab leaks, as can tree roots that invade and damage pipes. In most cases, a combination of these factors will contribute to the formation of a slab leak. Taking preventive steps such as regular inspections of plumbing systems and making necessary repairs when needed can help prevent or delay the onset of slab leaks. Additionally, homeowners should inspect their property for signs of shifting soil or other ground movement regularly and take action if any are noticed. Lastly, homeowners should ensure that their water pressure is always within normal levels to avoid putting undue strain on pipes.

If a slab leak does occur, be sure to contact a professional plumber to diagnose and repair the problem. The licensed plumbers at Ken's Plumbing & Heating can identify the source of the leak and repair it safely and effectively. In some cases, pipes may need to be replaced or entire sections of slab foundation may need to be excavated for repairs, so it’s important to contact a professional for the job.
