What is a Slab Leak?
A slab leak is when you have a water leak from one of your pipes underneath the concrete of your home or property. Many times slab leaks are not visible to the eye. You will typically find out about a slab leak by hearing water from underneath the ground, increase in water bill or areas of your asphalt or property somewhat sinking in. Its extremely important to not take slab leak issues lightly.
You should contact us or a licensed plumber as soon as you become aware of a slab leak. At Las Vegas Rooter, we specialize in locating and repairing slab leaks.
What causes a Slab Leak?
Slab leaks are typically caused by corrosion when the underground pipes make contact with soil from the exterior and water from the inside. Over time, the combination of the charged ground and water balance would induce electrolysis in metallic pipes, causing corrosion from the outside or inside of the pipe. Overtime this will create holes in the pipe.
