6 things you need to know about damp or wet soil under your slabs in Canberra .

Leaking water pipes under slabs are more common than you think. Water and leaking pipes can lead to

  1. Termite infestation as termites thrive in damp soil.
  2. The lifting and cracking of foundations caused by expanding clay. Most foundations for Canberra homes are sitting on a clay subsoil base. I have seen an internal brick chimney in Mawson ACT lift 50mm because of broken stormwater pipe.
  3. Sinking and subsidence under foundations and slabs caused by erosion and liquefaction. One of the most extreme examples of this was the Thredbo landslip.
  4. Rotting of structural timber frames caused by dampness rising through slabs.
  5. Paint peeling off brick and concrete walls as a result of moisture being drawn though the porous material.
  6. Very high water bills. We recently attended a unit complex in Fadden after they received a water bill that was $15,000.00 more than usual. The leak was under a driveway and was hard to locate as the water never made it to the surface. Instead, it was draining into a nearby sub-soil drain.
