Many homeowners aren’t familiar with or have experienced a slab leak. With that said, most aren’t aware of what a serious issue this can be. In Tampa, most traditional homes are built on top of a concrete pad, which is called a foundation. The foundation prevents the home from slanting or sinking as the ground settles, this is especially important during the hot summer months. Most often, important pipes run underneath this foundation. Any damage to the pipes underneath is known as a slab leak.

In most cases, homeowners know that something isn’t right when a slab leak occurs. Unfortunately, they don’t always know what signs to look for. If you are constantly hearing the sound of running water when all of the faucets are turned off, notice wet flooring, smell mildew coming from your carpets, or have seen a large increase in your monthly water bill, this could be because of a slab leak.
