Some Homeowner Don't Know What A Slab Leak Is
Old nostalgic homes along with the new housing tracks have caused a significant demand for plumbing services. Unfortunately, many of those older homes in Perris are encountering slab leaks. While not as prevalent as a broken water heater, clogged sewer line or a water pressure problem, homeowners need to be aware. Some of the homeowners we spoke to that have experienced a slab leak didn't think it was possible for a pipe to leak while encased in a concrete foundation.
Discovering A Leak Is Half The Battle
Half the battle is locating the leak since the leak is in your foundation; discovery can take days, weeks, and even months. The best place to find any leak in your home is from your water bill. The first thing to remember when looking at your water bill is don't assume that a high water bill is the cause of high water usage in your home. A high water bill may be telling you there is a water leak in your home. If you have a high water bill, run a water leak check.
1. All water must be turned off in your home.
2. Turn off your water meter, usually located near the sidewalk in the front of your house.
3. Write down the meter reading.
4. Wait 30 minutes while all the water and meter is set to off.
5. After 30 minutes recheck the meter. If the meter reading has increased, you have a water leak. Wait, you're not done yet!
6. Locate the turn off valve to your landscaping and turn it off.
7. After you've waited 30 minutes recheck the meter. If the meter showed no increase, then the water leak was coming from your irrigation. If the meter continues to increase the problem is coming from your home.
