Signs You Have a Slab Leak

Slab leaks are well-known as being the most difficult type of leak to detect unless you have advanced equipment to inspect the piping. However, there are a few signs that can inform you that the leak you’re experiencing might be a slab leak:

  • Your floor has “hot spots,” especially after using hot water at a plumbing fixture
  • A room feels more humid than normal
  • You hear running water beneath your floors when no appliances are in use
  • Walls and ceilings start to crack
  • You notice pools of water around your foundation outside
  • There’s a smell of mildew or moisture underneath carpets
  • Your water bills are high
  • You notice cracks along your baseboards

If you’re experiencing one of these issues, call Meetze Plumbing at (803) 732-3747 or contact us online, and we’ll dispatch a licensed plumber to inspect the leak.

Slab Leak Detection in Columbia & Irmo

Often, slab leaks don’t originate from the area where you first suspected there might be a leak (like a wet carpet) in your home. To find the source of a slab leak, our expert plumbers use state-of-the-art slab leak detection tools, including remote cameras. This means that we typically don’t have to tear up flooring simply to find the leak. We can use our equipment and expertise to locate it, then discuss available solutions with you.
