Slab Leak Location & Repair
Reasons Slab Leaks Occur
Slab leaks occur when the water pipes in the concrete slab underneath your home crack, break, or burst. The leak occurs in the pipes themselves, not in the slab. Still, the consequences can be devastating unless the problem is handled right away.
Slab leaks occur for various reasons. Common reasons include the following:
- Water pressure that is too high for the pipe system to manage
- Corrosion of water pipes
- Low quality or improperly installed pipes
- Friction from concrete, gravel, or other pipes that causes wear and tear
- Settling or shifting in the slab, which prompts cracks or breaks
How to Detect Slab Leaks
Watch out for the signs you have a leak, and make sure to contact our professionals at Wilson Plumbing & Heating for Akron slab leak location and repair as soon as you suspect a problem.
There are several different signs to look for that may indicate a slab leak, including:
- The water meter spinning even when no water is in use
- Moisture or mildew in flooring
- Higher than normal water bills
- Cracks in the flooring or walls
- Running water sounds even if water is turned off
- Increase in insect activity due to additional moisture
- Sewage smell due to a broken sewage line
How We Repair Slab Leaks
Our highly trained technicians at Wilson will perform a detailed detection process during a slab leak inspection. We use special tools and technology to locate the leak source and determine a repair solution. We will discuss your repair options with you after the inspection is complete. With every option we offer, our plumbing technicians exercise care to minimize damage to your property.
One option is re-routing the pipes. If we determine that only short pipe lengths need replacing, we will run new pipes above the ground. Another option is re-lining the existing pipes. We can push a new liner through the pipe that will cover over any cracks or breaks and stop the leaks. This process is minimally invasive, as we only need external access to the pipe to install the liner.
There are no problems too big or too small for our Technicians. Contact us today at (330) 920-0225 for a service appointment!

What to Do If You Have Multiple Leaks
