What Is a Slab Foundation?

A slab foundation is a thick concrete slab poured at grade level, with footings and a layer of sand and gravel beneath to provide suitable support and drainage. The slab serves as both the foundation and the subfloor for a home built directly on top of the slab.

Slab foundations are used in homes where basements and crawl spaces are not practical. All the plumbing in a slab foundation runs through and underneath the slab, making plumbing repairs difficult if your main water line leaks.

Signs of Slab Leaks

Slab leaks aren’t easy to spot. Because the pipes are under the slab, leaks can often go unnoticed for weeks or even months. But if you happen to spot any of the following signs, they are a good indication that you may have a slab leak:

  • Higher water bills: If your water bills increase dramatically without explanation, it’s a sign that you have a hidden leak.
  • Reduced water pressure: If your water pressure drops and there are no leaks inside your home, the problem may lie under the slab.
  • Wet soil: If you notice wet soil, dampness, erosion, or flooding near your foundation, a pipe may be broken or leaking.
  • Sounds of running water: Sounds of dripping or rushing water can be heard inside your home if there’s a significant leak.
  • Hot or cold spots on your floor: Broken hot water lines or cold water lines beneath the slab can cause hot or cold spots on your floor.
  • Mold or mildew odors: If mold starts to grow in wet spots below your foundation, it may permeate through the slab and make your home smell musty.
  • Moisture in your home: If you notice unexplained moisture or standing water on your floor, it may be migrating through the slab from a leak below.

Slab Leak FAQs

What causes slab leaks?

Slab leaks are most often caused by things like soil expansion and contraction, frozen ground, erosion, chemical reactions, and abrasion, which can deteriorate the slab, allow it to move, and damage the piping.

Outdated materials and poor installation practices can cause pipes to leak or damage the foundation.

Does homeowners insurance cover slab leaks?

Many home insurance policies consider slab leaks the result of poor maintenance and will not cover the damage they cause.

In some cases, a pipe that freezes and bursts suddenly may be covered. Check your policy or speak with your insurance agent for more information.

How do you prevent slab leaks?

Erosion is a top cause of slab leaks, so ensure your soil has the correct moisture levels, your yard is properly graded, and your gutters are working correctly.

Have your water’s pH tested to avoid corrosion and pipe damage, and avoid flushing anything down the drain that might damage your drain or sewer lines, such as chemical drain cleaners, acids, fats, oils, and grease.
