A Slab Leak Is Also Known As A Foundation Leak
Most of us will never experience a slab leak, and some of us don't even know what one is. A slab leak also is known as a foundation leak. It's when a copper or old galvanized steel pipe becomes compromised and begins to leak water while encased in your foundation's concrete. The leak is most common in old homes but can occur in new homes as well. The cause is usually unknown, but most plumbing experts attribute it to poor installation or defective pipes. The smallest dent or bend in a pipe will eventually leak under many years of pressure.
Pressure From A Small Stone Can Cause A Slab Leak
Another common cause is when a small pebble is found in the concrete and sits against a copper pipe for 30 or 40 years. This can also cause a pinhole leak. Copper is a soft metal, the pressure of a small stone along with a shifting foundation is a recipe for disaster. If you suspect a slab leak, call your Corona slab leak repair and detection team at Big B's Plumbing, we'll have you back on track in no time at all.

Earthquakes Can Move Your Foundation
The homes in Corona California are prone to have slab leaks. It's no mystery California is known for earthquakes, and while we don't always feel them, they are taking place daily. There isn't a day that goes by that Corona doesn't experience an earthquake albeit they are so small we won't feel them. It still moves our foundations ever so slightly. The slightest movement in our foundation can trigger a pipe to crack, especially a pipe that had years of use which may include hard water. Galvanized steel pipes are most affected by hard water, but copper can also show signs of ware.
Know The Signs Of A Slab Leak
So now you know what causes a slab leak and what to look for to detect one. The first signs that you have a slab leak is a spike in your water bill. If you notice your water bill increased, start checking for wet spots on your carpet. You may even notice mold near the baseboards. Discolored tiles is another telltale sign that your slab is leaking. If you have hardwood floors, you'll see the planks starting to buckle. A drop in water pressure can be another sign, and in some cases, a homeowner will feel hot or warm areas on their floor while continually hearing the water heater running.
