Most of Texas' homes are built on a concrete slab and when the soil shifts your plumbing lines beneath the slab become susceptible to leaks. Once a slab leak springs, it only causes the soil to shift more, which can cause the leak to become worse. One small leak can waste so much water that it can fill up to 12,000 bathtubs. A minor leak can cost you quite a bit. In a horrible case, a leak that is not taken care of can shatter the slab and floor and flood your whole home. This could potentially ruin all of your personal belongings. Play it safe and call Xtreme Air Services if you suspect issues in the plumbing lines under your home.
