Slab Leaks

Leak Detection Emergency Services

At Controlled Plumbing, we can keep water damage from occurring through proper repairs and
maintenance. But when water leak emergencies occur, don’t worry—we can help.

Signs That You Have A Slab Leak


Rising Water Bills. You should always be monitoring your home’s water bills from month to month. Though these bills will rise and fall with how much water you use, you should look for any unexplained spikes that may indicate a leak. If your water bills are much higher than they should be, it may be that you have a slab leak.

Water Meter. One easy way to tell if you have a leak in your system is to turn off all the plumbing appliances in your home and watch your water meter. If your water meter is still running, it means that you probably have a leak somewhere in your home. Call Controlled Plumbing for plumbing repairs if you notice this.

Sounds of running water. Sometimes a slab leak can also be detected by simply listening for the sound of running water. You may need a plumber to determine the exact location of the leak.

Water puddles along the outside of the house. If you notice water puddles along the side of the house and it’s not the result of your sprinklers or water hoses take a closer look. Chance are you might have a slab leak. 

Slab Leak Symptoms

Puddles of water on the floor/wet carpet. A good indicator of a slab leak is when you see puddles of water coming from up under your floor. Usually you will see leaks in areas close to plumbing, such as bathrooms, kitchen or the laundry room.

The water is coming from the slab, surfacing and finding the path of least resistance. If you touch the water and it’s hot you’re dealing with a hot water slab leak which is what homeowners will have about 80% of the time when dealing with these types of leaks.

Many times when you have a slab leak the water doesn’t surface, right away. The water is being absorbed by the ground underneath the slab. Your slab leak symptoms might not be water coming in the house.

    NO DRAMA. I had foundation work through Perma Tech. They discovered a leak under my foundation. They called Controlled Plumbing to fix it. They were there quickly. The job was very complicated because the repair had to be done through a tunnel under my foundation which required some additional tunneling by Controlled Plumbing. I was quoted a price and they finished below that price. The team worked very hard & was very professional. NO DRAMA. They kept me informed the entire way. They also worked in conjunction with Perma Tech. I will call them again if I have any Plumbing issues.
    The owner kept me updated through the entire difficult process.

    Glory to God! My family members and I are very satisfied with this company. They got the job done and were very professional at what they do. Also I respect how their employees were patient with me as I asked them questions. It made me feel like they really was concerned about my family and I well being. Thanks for installing the new hot water heater.
