How Do Dallas Homes Develop Slab Leaks?

In the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area, most homes rest on a slab. The word slab refers to the concrete pad that your house was built on. Slab construction is durable, and it offers benefits when it comes to insulation, home comfort, and energy use, but slabs can be susceptible to movement and damage, especially when it comes to local soil and weather conditions.

In North Texas, the soil is very absorbent due to high clay content. Clay absorbs water easily and expands following absorption. So, during periods of heavy rainfall or high humidity, the ground underneath your slab can:

  • Suck up a lot of water
  • Expand and push upwards against your slab

During the dry, hot Dallas summers, the water-filled clay beneath your home starts to dry out. As the clay dries, it shrinks, and portions of your slab can move or sink. This puts pressure on the plumbing lines that run underneath and beside your slab, as well as those in your home’s foundation. Over time, especially as pipes age, this slab movement can damage pipes and cause foundation leaks.

Slab Leak Detection

Slab leaks are generally caused by a problem in one of three common plumbing lines:

  1. Drain and sewer lines: Your sewer and drain lines remove waste from your bathrooms, washing machines, and kitchen.
  2. Pipes that supply your home with cold water: Cold water supply lines run into your home from the street, and may also run under your slab.
  3. Lines running from your water heater: Water heater lines move hot water from your water heater to different spots throughout your home.

Because these leaks occur underground, often under the slab, they can release water for some time before they are detected. An expert Dallas plumber at Staggs Plumbing knows where to look to quickly spot a leak that was caused by slab movement.

How to Spot a Slab Leak at Your Dallas Home

Some common signs that your Dallas-area home has a slab leak include:

  • A constantly running water heater: Does your water heater run when no hot water is being used? This is a sign that you could have a foundation leak. After using a lot of hot water, your water heater will run momentarily to fill the empty pipes. However, it should not be running continually.
  • A constantly running water meter: If you see your water meter moving and no water is being used, there could be a leak somewhere. It may or may not be a slab leak, and in any case, you should call a plumber ASAP.
  • Warm spots on floors: A warm spot on your floor could be an indication that a water heater supply line has burst.
  • Damp areas on or moldy smells coming from flooring: When this occurs in an area of your home that is seldom used, like a storage room, a closet, the problem can go undetected for some time.
  • Sounds of running water: If you periodically hear water running through pipes when no water is being used, this could be an indication that you need a slab leak repaired.
  • Cracks in your floors and walls: These can be signs that your home’s foundation is settling. These could also be telltale signs of a slab leak.

How Much Do Slab Leak Repairs Cost?

The cost of slab leak repair depends on several factors, including the:

  • Number of leaks present.
  • Location of the leaks and damaged pipes.
  • Nature and condition of your home’s foundation.

Generally, multiple slab leaks — and slab leaks that are more difficult to access — can incur higher repair costs. However, it’s important to remember that slab leaks:

  • Will get worse over time, further driving up repair costs
  • Can cause damage to your home’s foundation the longer they go unrepaired

A leak even just a dime thick can waste up to 6,300 gallons of water per month. When you put that in perspective, the cost of repairs is a no brainer.

  • Your insurer will likely cover the bulk of the costs, including the expenses associated with tunneling, excavation, leak detection, etc.
