What Are The Most Common Types Of Plumbing Leaks?
Plumbing leaks can occur anywhere in your home, but some of the most common places for leaks are:
- Near your home’s foundation
Sinks can leak from the faucet, the drain, or even under the sink. Toilets can leak from the tank or the bowl. Water heaters usually leak from the connections on the top or bottom of the tank. And leaks near your foundation can come from slab leaks (underground water or sewer lines) or through cracks in your drywall.
Do You Have A Slab Leak?
One of the most damaging water leaks is a slab leak. This type of leak occurs in the pipes underneath the slab foundation of your home. Because it is out of sight, a slab leak can go unnoticed for a long time.
The dangers of a slab leak include:
- Mold and mildew growth
- Health issues due to exposure to mold
- Weakened foundation and structural damage
- arge repair and water bills
Fortunately, some signs can tell you if you have a slab leak such as cracks in the walls and floors, a decrease in your water pressure, damp carpets or warped hardwood flooring, and more. Whether you know or suspect a slab leak, call Bobby L. Greene Plumbing & Heating Co. right away.
