Slab Leak Detection and Repair in Richardson, TX
A slab leak isn’t any different in principle than any other kind of plumbing leak: simply a pipe in your Richardson, TX home that has corroded or worn out to the point where a leak springs up. The problem is that a slab leak takes place in a pipe buried under the foundation of your house (or a similar location like a concrete porch). In some cases, it might even be embedded in the concrete itself. That’s a serious problem calling for a serious plumbing solution.
At Earthwise Home Services, we have considerable experience with slab leak repair in the Richardson, TX area. That includes slab leak detection services as well as the most effective means of addressing the problem once it’s pinpointed. Slab leaks are a considerable problem, but you don’t have to face them alone. Call on our team to set up an appointment and we’ll be there in a flash!
Why Are Slab Leaks So Much Trouble?
Leaks rank among the most common plumbing issues you may have to deal with, and any plumber worth the name knows how to fix them quickly and effectively. The problem comes when that pipe is difficult to reach: buried under concrete or embedded in the concrete itself. Not only does it mean getting to the leak exponentially harder, but the leak can continue for months or even years before being spotted.
That means the damage could be severe. Water can damage concrete over time, and when that damage occurs in the foundation of your house, it could prove disastrous. That’s why our team is ready to go with swift and accurate slab leak detection and reliable slab leak repair. No matter where you are in the Richardson, TX area, we’re ready to go when you need us.

But before that happens, you need to spot the signs that there’s a leak in the first place. That can be tough, but there are some signs you can spot, including (but not limited to) the following:
- You detect the sounds of dripping or running water without any apparent cause.
- Puddles form around the foundation of your house, again without an apparent cause.
- You feel a warm spot of a cold spot on the concrete.
- Your water bills go up for no apparent reason.
- Cracks appear in the concrete.
