Signs Of A Leak Under The Foundation
One of the worst things that could happen is if you have plumbing leaks under the foundation of your home. If your home is newer this is less likely to happen, but older home owners should keep an eye for these signs.
Low Water Pressure
A decrease in your water pressure can be a sign of a plumbing leak. If you cannot find out why your water pressure is decreasing, you need a professional to come out and take a look. A leak under your foundation will require a professional to investigate.
Leaks under a foundation can be investigated by tools that Highmark Plumbing uses for Leak Detection. Early detection of this type of issue will prevent major issues in the future.
Increased Water Usage
Your water bill shows your water usage for that billing period. If you see a drastic increase but have no reason for the higher usage, it can be a sign of a leak. If your usage increases over a longer period, it could mean that a small leak is increasing in size.

Consistent Bad Odors
Floor Damage or Damp Floors
Damp carpets without an obvious source, warped hardwood floors, or low spots in your floor can be an indicator of a leak under your foundation.
When this occurs, the plumbing leak should be corrected before any repair to the flooring or walls.
Water Heater Is Constantly Running
Most water tanks make some noise when they are running and heating the water. You may hear water as it enters in and out of your water tank. Your electric or gas bill may see a spike in the monthly costs.
Unexplaned Cracks In Your Floors Or Walls
You see a crack developing on one of your walls. Doors in one part of the house are starting to stick. The floor is getting lower in one spot. All of this damage could be signs of a hidden leak in your slab foundation.
