Slab Leak Detection and Repair Services in Southlake Texas
How to tell if you have a Slab Leak in Southlake
There are a few preliminary tests to see if you may have a slab leak. While they are not all conclusive, they can tell you if you should investigate further.
- Turn off all faucets in your home, make sure the toilets are not running, and the hose bibs outside are shut off. Go to your water meter, and see if it is spinning. If so, there is water running inside your house somewhere, and if it’s not apparent where, it could be a leak under your foundation.
- Take off your shoes and walk around your house, seeing if you feel any hotspots on the floor. This will only tell you if it’s a hot water slab leak, but can help identify a problem. These spots are easy to identify under tile, wood floors, not as easy with carpet. Our detection equipment is more sophisticated and can find leaks much easier and faster.
- Check around your walls and foundation for cracks, this can be caused by your home settling, which can produce slab leaks.
- Turn off all radios, televisions, etc. and just listen. If you hear water running, and nothing is turned on, water is running somewhere.
Again, these are not conclusive tests, but can tell you if you should call a plumbing professional from Schrader Plumbing to do more extensive testing, and give you an assessment of your water and sewer system in Southlake.
