Why Do Concrete Slab Leaks Occur?
When it comes to a slab leak, many factors come into play, which can all result in this issue.
These factors include:
- The ground beneath may not be properly compacted, causing shifting of the slab and pressuring on plumbing pipes
- High water pressure in the pipes beneath the slab
- Inferior plumbing equipment
- High water pH
- Poor workmanship when installing the plumbing system
By being aware of possible issues in your slab, you can avoid many of these serious problems altogether. Our expert Boise plumbers can inspect your home and determine whether you have a slab leak in a timely and professional manner.

Where Are Slab Leaks Often Found?
A slab leak can occur at any point in the plumbing system. The system is divided into a pressure side, where the water comes into the home, and a drainage side, where water leaves the system. Leaks in newer homes younger than 20 years old are often on the pressure side. Drainage side leaks often occur in older homes in which the plumbing system has seen years of use. Leaks on the drainage side of the system may have fewer symptoms and may be difficult to detect. A lingering odor in the home or constant feeling of moisture may be the only signs of a leak below the concrete.
