What causes a slab leak?
A water leak (of any kind) occurs when the pipes that are running through your home burst or crack. This is most common in exposed pipes, such as those in your attic, but they can also happen in your foundation whenever the ground shifts or settles.
A slab leak can also happen as the result of deterioration over time. If this happens, you can expect to see water and/or sewage appear in your home.
