As soon as you discover a slab leak—or even think you might have a slab leak—take immediate action. Many homeowners don’t realize they have a potential slab leak until some of these warning signs appear. A slab leak can occur in the concrete foundation of your home or commercial property. Even a small leak can cause extensive damage to your home’s foundation if not properly detected and repaired. Each day you wait means more damage and more expensive repair bills. Our team of highly-trained plumbers relies on state-of-the-art equipment and advanced leak detection technology to better serve our customers.


5 Signs of a Slab Leak

If you’re unsure whether you have a slab leak or not, look for these symptoms:


1.      An abnormally high water bill

2.      Warm spots on flooring that indicate a hot water leak beneath the slab

3.      Unexplained odors in the home

4.      Shifting or changes in the foundation

5.       Mildew or excessive mold under your carpet or on your walls


If you suspect a leak, your next call should be a plumber trained in plumbing leak detection to confirm the leak and assess the damage. If you live in the Wisconsin Rapids area, our team of professional plumbers at Steve’s Plumbing & Heating will determine the source of the slab leak and provide you with reasonable repair options.


Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement Can Fix the Leak

Traditional foundation repair and restoration damages could cost you or your business thousands. However, the use of new leak detection technology and trenchless sewer repair techniques means you don’t have to worry about extensive damage to your lawn or landscape.


New technology has made the pipe relining process a cost effective option for root-damaged pipes, rusted pipes, and to seal cracks and holes. A trenchless sewer repair process means less damage to your home’s landscape, fewer days or weeks of construction, and less cost than traditional sewer line replacement. A real bonus is the new pipe warranty that expands to cover 50 years.
