Call 24/7 Emergency Connecticut Plumbers For Slab Leaks
Plumbers 911 Has a Network of Plumbers Capable of Fixing All Leaks
The concrete slabs are the most affected parts of a home when leaking occurs. This is because much of the underground plumbing is connected to concrete slabs and in this ever changing Connecticut weather, when the ground is constantly changing, therefore increases the chances of slab leaks.
How does this happen? When the soil underneath your home heats up, it expands. And the opposite happens when it cools down, it shrinks. If this expanding and shrinking continues, then it could create destruction on the concrete.
When the shifting of the concrete continues over time, it eventually cracks causing instability on the pipes attached to it. Fittings will eventually become loose and pipes could break. The problem with this type of leak is that it is hard to spot.
Warning Signs of Slab Leaks
The sound of running water can be heard even when the water valve is shut off. This could mean that there is still running water somewhere in your home. If you cannot detect where the source of the running water can be found, it could be under the concrete.
Excess mildew or mold under your home’s carpet. Mildew or mold won’t easily grow unless there’s trapped moisture. If you find either of these two especially in certain spots, then there’s a huge chance of you having sitting water under your floor.
That hot spot on the floor is another sign. The moment a hot water pipe burst or leaks, it won’t immediately come out fully from the floor. All you would feel are hot spots on the floor brought about by the heat of the water. The water itself remains under the concrete floor.
High water bills. Uncontrolled water flow will, of course, reflect on your water bill. This should not surprise you. If you are unsure of any leakage, then the high water bill will let you know for sure.
