Underground Slab Sewer System in Houston

For most homes around southeast Texas, sewer pipes are buried underneath the slab that the foundation is built on. Instability in ground conditions opens up the possibility of the pipes shifting and deteriorating beneath the slab. If those pipes burst, there is an even greater chance of the soil loosening, which can turn a common plumbing problem into a large fiasco. If the soil cannot support the slab, then in rare cases, the weight can cause the slab to cave, damaging the sewer system.

Underground leaks aren’t easily seen, so it’s important to look for signs like:

  • Sharp increase in your water bill, without an increase in usage
  • Sound of running water with no faucets on
  • Visible foundation cracks
  • Grass around the foundation growing unevenly
  • Warm spots on the floor
  • Discoloring on the floor
  • Low water pressure
  • Sewer smell inside the home
  • Roots or mud found during a drain cleaning service
