The answer is YES.
Burst pipes and broken water lines are one of the MOST common plumbing problems that we get calls for here in the Atlanta area. And often enough - those pipes are under a concrete slab.
Slab leaks are treated list most any other type of pipe leak, the difference is that the work to repair a slab leak can be quite extensive.
How do you know if you have a slab leak?
Following are 14 signs to look out for:
- Cracks in the concrete slab is an obvious one
- Pooling of water where there shouldn’t be - this could be indoor or outdoor
- Drywall cracks on your walls
- Soggy carpeting, deformed wood floors or any sign of a change in your flooring
- Baseboards are wet or moist
- Mold or mildew - even if you don’t see it you may smell it
- Interior doors that don’t close properly, but they used to
- An unexplained hot spot in your floor
- An unusually high water bill
- Your toilet(s) and/or showers and/or bathtubs back up
- Your water pressure decreases
- Your hot water heater is constantly running
- You hear odd sounds, running water but no faucets are turned on
- You notice that you are running out of hot water for no reason (this may indicate a leak in your hot water line)
Will my insurance cover this type of leak repair?
We recommend you check with your insurance agent but in most cases slap leak repair is covered under a homeowner’s policy.
