Slab Leak Repair
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!

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.
