Slab Leaks Explained

Many properties have a concrete floor in the basement called a slab. In some homes, the copper piping for the water system runs through or under this concrete. The copper can be damaged during installation or worn over time, creating cracks or leaks known as slab leaks.

Slab leaks can go unnoticed for a very long time, depending on the location of the leak, and the size of the opening in the pipe. Water will pour out of the pipe constantly, eventually causing a serious problem that will need to be corrected immediately, to avoid costly structural damage.

Can I get a slab leak? I’m not in a freeze-prone area.

Normal temperatures throughout the seasons can still wreak havoc on a home’s plumbing system. Although freezing is a common cause of broken pipes, slab leaks can occur in any climate.

Common Causes of Slab Leaks


There are several issues that may lead to a slab leak. After all, just consider the power of moving water, which has carved canyons and caves throughout the world over time. If copper or galvanized pipes are subjected to high pressure, they can be stripped of their coating, which leaves nothing to stop internal damage that will cause leaks.

In some cases, the water itself weakens pipes. If you have a pH under 7, you have acidic or soft water, which slowly dissolves plumbing.

Some homes also have pipes made from different metals, which causes electrolysis. The different energy levels stored in each metal will react to create a current, which will cause pinhole openings in the pipe that grow larger over time.

You may even be causing a slab leak if you are not careful what you put down your drains. Harsh chemicals can cause damage to plumbing and lead to slab leaks. Failing to replace old plumbing will also cause damage.
