Slab leaks refer to a pipe failure in or below the concrete slab of a home or building. There are many factors that can cause a slab leak ranging from old age to poor materials such as being made of polybutylene or CPVC. Some of the more common and noticeable signs of a slab leak are an unjustified increase in the monthly water bill, the sound of running water, and moisture or water puddling on the floor.
