Let’s put it this way—it’s not minor! In fact, once a slab leak has progressed to the point that you actually see the damage it’s causing, if it’s after-hours then it’s time to call for 24-hour plumbing in Park Ridge, IL.
Now, the chances that you’ll own a home for 50 or so years and never run into a problem with your plumbing system are very slim. Some plumbing problems are in fact very minor—such as a leaky faucet or a slow-moving drain that requires a pro with a drain snake to easily remove (please, don’t use caustic, store-bought “solutions.”)
So, what makes a slab leak so bad? After all, all leaks are equal, right? Well, it’s not that a slab leak is unique or special in some way, but the damage it can and does inflict is nothing to take lightly.
