Is A Slab Leak Behind Your Water Damage, Musty Smells & High Water Bills? APCO Plumbing Can Help

  • Do you hear hissing sounds in your home, even when you’re not using any water?
  • Are your floors buckled or cracked?
  • Do you have cracks in your walls near the baseboards?
  • Do the doors in your home “stick?”
  • Have you noticed a decrease in water pressure or an increase in water bills?
  • Have you noticed musty smells in your home?

You may have a slab leak.

A slab leak simply refers to a crack or break in the pipe running beneath the concrete slab or foundation of your home. These cracks or breaks can occur as a result of normal shifting and settling, or they can be the result of something like an earthquake.

No matter what’s caused the problem, the longer slab leaks go undiagnosed, the worse the damage can be. So it’s important that you work quickly to figure out if you have a slab leak.

Here’s a simple test you can do:

  • Turn off all of the faucets and water-using appliances in your home
  • Head out to your water meter

If the needle’s moving even though you’re not using any water, it’s a good idea to call a licensed and insured plumber to have the slab leak confirmed. The team here at APEX Plumbing is happy to help.
