Old and unmaintained pipes are susceptible to dangerous leak points, which can negatively affect business operations.  Slab leaks are caused by a waterline leak below your building’s concrete foundation (or “slab”), leading to:

  • Disruption to your business.
  • Downtime for your water system (detrimental to food-services and manufacturing organizations).
  • Costly water damage to your business’s flooring, walls and piping system.

In the event of a slab leak, call a professional plumber immediately to assess your situation and quickly recommend a solution.

Symptoms of a Slab Leak

Avoid damage to your business by watching for signs of a slab leak.

  • Walls: Wet spots, stains and cracks.
  • Floors: Wet spots and stains, warped hardwood, moldy carpets or spots that buckle.
  • Warm spots: Check your floor for heated areas (common for radiant heating systems, where hot water leaks underneath the concrete slab).
  • Foundation: Water leaking through building foundation.
  • Sound: The sound of running water, even when water is turned off.
  • Water pressure: Low water pressure and sudden increase in water bill.

Testing for Slab Leaks

Rapid dial movement on your water meter indicates a subterranean leak. If you notice a lot of movement with your dial within a few minutes, contact a plumber immediately to avoid further disruption to your business.
