A slab leak refers to a leak in the water pipes that run below the concrete foundation of your house. Slab leaks have a variety of causes, from poor installation when your house was built, to abrasion over time as your pipes expand and contract. Contact with soil underneath your home can corrode the copper, and if your foundations shift for any reason, your pipes will come under severe strain.
