Columbus Slab Leak Repair
Effectively Resolving Leak Issues
While there are many leaks that your home or business could experience, a slab leak is one that needs to be fixed as soon as possible. A common misconception for many people when they hear the term slab leak is that there is a problem with their concrete slabs. It’s actually the pipe or drainage system that lies inside or beneath the pipe. At 614-Plumber, we have experienced Columbus slab leak repair experts who can carefully and quickly resolve any slab leak problems you are dealing with.
If you are dealing with a slab leak, don’t wait to contact us at (614) 467-8565 to speak with one of our Columbus plumbers.
What Causes Slab Leaks?
Slab leaks occur due to hard water and concrete mixing, and disturbing the foundation. This can cause the building to shift in its foundation. It may take the professionals at our Columbus team to locate the water leak and evaluate the full spectrum of the damage and make sure we find a solution that offers a solid, long-term solution.
You could experience a slab leak for a variety of reasons, including:
- Water pressure that was too high
- The corrosion of the pipe
- Friction on the pipe caused by the ground, other pipes, or the slab
- The settling of the slab itself
- Poor quality pipes
When a slab leak occurs, it is important to quickly identify the source of the problem and address it promptly. The pipes that lie within the concrete foundation of your home can be easily forgotten and neglected. Not until you begin noticing the signs of a slab leak—such as dampness on your floors or carpet, or an increased water bill, that it may be time to delve further into the issue.
