Leak Causes

Leaks can happen anywhere you have pipes. The service line from your meter runs under your yard or driveway, so if a tree falls or heavy vehicle drives across your yard, it could cause a leak. Plumbing in your walls can freeze. Basements and crawl spaces are susceptible to flooding or pest invasion. Here are the most common causes of slab leaks.

  • Temperature change. Pipes expand and contract when hot water runs through them or freezing temperatures reach them. The slight movement wears pipes away over time.
  • Settling. The weight of your home can cause a shift that puts pressure on pipes.
  • Corrosion. Chemicals in soil and water breaks down copper pipes over time.
  • Human error. Damage during installation or renovation might go unnoticed for a time until a leak gets bigger.
