Slab Leaks and Leak Detection in Plano & the Surrounding Areas
A slab is another name for the concrete foundation that some homes are built upon. Because it supports your entire home, it’s important for your slab to remain strong and unbroken. A slab is usually installed above the water and sewer lines; if those lines deteriorate or break, they can release water beneath your home’s foundation, risking cracks or weakening.
Every homeowner’s nightmare is to discover they may have a slab leak. Don’t worry – Harvey West Plumbing Company is capable of performing leak detection and making the situation less destructive and more affordable. There are two types of slab leaks – fresh water and sewer water. Slab leaks are usually discovered after a plumber is called in for repairs that are symptomatic of a slab leak. Water slab leaks are normally discovered because of abnormally high water or gas utility bills, hearing water running without a source, hot spots on the floor, wet spots on the floor, and occasionally foundation problems. Sewer slab leaks are typically discovered due to foundation problems or constant sewer stoppages.
If you notice any of these issues, contacting a plumber quickly can make a big difference. At Harvey West Plumbing, we provide slab leak detection and repair services to those in and around Allen, McKinney, Plano, Wylie, Murphy, Parker, Sachse, and Richardson, TX. Call today for service.
