Slab Leak DetectionIf you have noticed your water bill climbing or your home’s drains are not flowing properly, a broken pipe could be to blame. While that is usually an easy-to-detect situation in northern climates, here in Central Florida, where the plumbing is located below the slab of your home, it gets immensely more complicated. The last thing you need is to have more of your flooring and slab demolished than is necessary to gain access to the leak. With slab leak detection, the effect can be minimized.

It may seem that going to this expense and disruption for a leak can be ignored, particularly if you’re only noticing a small increase on your water bill. However, it is important to note the power of water. That leak is doing much more than raising your water bill; it is slowly but surely undermining the foundation of your home, leading to damaged flooring and worse. The problem is that some of these leaks are practically unnoticeable, as they aren’t raising your water bill enough to draw your attention. The way to have peace of mind, particularly if you have an older home, is to hire a slab leak detection company every few years to inspect your water lines for any problems.
