New Jersey and Eastern PA Slab Leaks
Sometimes it is easy to tell when a pipe in your home is leaking. You will either get a puddle on the floor or a damp spot on the ceiling, and you will know you need to call a plumber right away. However, there are some leaks, like slab leaks, which are more difficult to detect.
Slab leaks are what you call leaks that occur in the pipes located behind or below a slab of concrete. They are usually located in a basement, though they can occur in walls as well. Because concrete is thick and not very porous, a lot of water can collect behind it before you ever even know there is a problem. If your floor or your wall is beginning to develop wet spots, a slab leak could be the culprit. However, by the time you are able to detect this problem, the water could have been collecting behind the concrete for months. That is why it is always best to call a New Jersey or Eastern PA plumber like Resolve Rooter as soon as you notice a problem for an emergency plumbing repair.
