Mokena IL Slab Leak Repairs


A slab leak is a plumbing issue that is caused by the piping running through your property’s foundation springs a leak. As the pipe is encased in concrete, slab leaks can be very difficult to detect. Most often homeowners realize that they have a slab leak when they notice that their hot water heater is running non-stop – to make up for the hot water that is leaking through the slab!


If you suspect you have a slab leak, give us a call at (815) 261-0539 at RW Dowding Plumbing. Our company of Master Plumbers has repaired slab leaks since 1963, and we have the expertise and know-how to repair your slab leak quickly and effectively. 

How Do I Know If I Have a Slab Leak?


Slab leaks can be very tricky to detect without specialized equipment on our trucks. A few common signs that you have a slab leak are typical of any pipe leak, only without being able to detect any leaking water.


If you notice no signs of a leak inside your home like dripping sounds or pooling water, but you notice these following signs, it is time to call a licensed plumber to have a look:

  • A sudden increase in your water bill without an increase in usage
  • An overburdened water heater without explanation – you can constantly hear it running, even if you’re not using hot water
  • Increased gas or utility usage linked to hot water consumption

The reason for this is that slab leaks most frequently impact hot water pipes. If your hot water pipes break, all the signs of usage will spike without an obvious explanation. The explanation is buried deep in your piping system – in the form of a slab leak!


If you suspect you have a slab leak or would just like a professional opinion for your peace of mind, give us a call at (815) 261-0539 for RW Dowding.

We will definitely use R.W. Dowding Plumbing for all of our plumbing needs. We finally found an honest and professional plumbing company. They respond quickly and helped us with a major kitchen sink clog that many other companies could not fix. They showed up on time and completed the job quickly and thoroughly for a reasonable rate. We will be referring them to anyone we know who needs a plumber.

I sent a photo of my gas line issue. He gave me quotes on two options. He recommended the less expensive. I decided that was the better option because it didn’t involve cutting into drywall. He was late on his proposed timeline but let me know prior to that time. He was prompt for the changed time. He did extra work (moving the water line to my fridge closer to the wall and removing the “no-tip” for the previous range from the floor) so the range could be pushed in all the way so it was almost perfectly counter depth. Thanks Brad.
