6 Tell-Tale Signs You Might Have a Pipe Leak Under Your Slab, Honolulu, Hawaii

Most plumbing pipe leaks announce themselves with some fairly obvious signs, such as pools of water under the sink, or moisture stains in the living area. Most homeowners know how important it is to fix leaks right away to prevent rot and serious water damage, but some of the most destructive leaks are not so easy to detect. 

According to Fast Rooter Plumbing, Oahu’s most trusted plumber, these tell-tale signs might indicate that you have a plumbing leak in the slab under your house.

  • Continually moist or mildewed carpets, cracked tiles, or bubbling linoleum could indicate water moving up through the concrete.
  • A warm spot in the floor might be a sign that one of your hot water pipes is broken.
  • Sometimes, a pipe leaking in the slab will make a very quiet hissing or splashing sound.
  • If a leak is serious or goes on for an extended period, it can eventually damage your entire house. Cracks in the walls might mean that the entire slab has shifted as a result of water damage.
  • A sudden decrease in water pressure might be caused by a leaking pipe. This can also happen so gradually that you don’t even notice.
  • A steadily climbing or spiking water bill is one of the signs that gets most people’s attention. If your usage seems to have inexplicably spiked, then check your water meter. If the meter is moving even when the house is using no water, you probably have a leak.
