What is a Slab Leak?

The term “slab leak” is used by plumbing professionals and insurance companies to describe water leaks that are underneath concrete floor or slab of your home. They are often difficult to notice. The can sometimes be repaired by cutting a small hole in the floor to access the pipe below to then repair the portion of pipe that is leaking. Depending on the condition of the pipes and the materials used, a repipe is sometimes recommended.

Slab leaks are common in Collins Island, California. Here are some of the most common causes.

High Water Pressure

High Water Pressure leads to leaks - Elder & Young Plumbing Company

When your water pressure is too high, it can cause a number of pipes and joints in the plumbing system to leak. One way you might notice these leaks are by hearing them when using the toilet or turning on/off your faucet’s hot water. It may be necessary for us to check out this issue with an inspection so that we can make sure everything stays running smoothly!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

Foundation Shifting and Settling leads to leaks - Elder & Young Plumbing Company

The pipes in your house in Collins Island may be more fragile than you might think. One of the reasons is that they have to move with what’s happening around them, and if there’s a problem elsewhere like erosion or an earthquake then the whole foundation can shift which will make everything go out of whack including anything connected to it such as water pressure changes and color issues.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Pipe Corrosion leads to leaks - Elder & Young Plumbing Company

Corrosion can cause both leaks and clogs. It’s important to take care of any corrosion on your pipes, as it may indicate that you need to have them looked at by a professional plumber right away! If the problem appears more severe than it is, consider replacing high risk factors- like ones made from cast iron – because these will only get worse over time and require significant repairs later if left unattended.

Worn Pipe Joints

Quick Temperature Changes

The pipes in your home in Collins Island are likely to expand and contract due to temperature changes, which can lead them wear down over time.

Tree Root Intrusion

Tree Root Intrusion lead to leaks - Elder & Young Plumbing

Most of the time, water leaks originate outside your home. For example, tree roots from near trees could be intruding on pipes and seeping out moisture in wet patches into your yard – which means you need an expert plumber to find a leak quickly with their detection equipment. Trees can cause problems for plumbing systems due to root intrusion!

Slab leaks are common in Collins Island, California. Here are some of the most common causes.

Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew love damp and wet areas, especially when there’s not a lot of light or air movement. A lot of leaks happen behind a wall, under the floor or in the ceiling where they go unnoticed for quite a long time. And these places are the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew. If you notice mold or mildew growing on a non-shower wall in your house, this could be a telltale sign of a water leak. Turn off your water and call a plumber immediately to schedule a leak detection service.

Wet Spots on Floor Around Sinks, Toilets and Tubs

If you notice a wet spot on the floor around a sink, toilet or tub, it may be nothing, or, it may be due to a water leak. Homeowners should regularly inspect the areas around sinks, toilets and tubs and look for wet spots or discoloration. If you notice don’t notice anything unusual, and the moisture persists, you could have a cracked toilet, or it could be something else. If nothing stands out, call a professional plumber for help. We’ll find the source of the water and solve the plumbing problem.

Low Water Pressure

If you’ve noticed a decrease in water pressure that doesn’t seem normal, or you simply have low water pressure, this may be an indication of a water leak either with the water main or the pipes in your home. The severity of the leak may vary from a slight leak to a rupture. If your water pressure seems low and you suspect a leak, it’s a good time to call a professional plumber who has the proper leak detection equipment who can locate a leak and solve your plumbing problems quick.

Wet Spots Next to Walls

Water flows downhill. If you have a wet spot next to a wall that is next to a bathroom, it may be a sign of a leak in the bathroom or within the wall between the two rooms. However, if there is no bathroom next to a wet spot next to a wall, it’s likely that the water the result of a water leak that is coming from above and running down the wall and pooling at the floor. In these situations, it’s important to contact a plumber immediately to mitigate the damages that are being done. These situations if not taken care of early can lead to mold and other damage. A professional plumber will use the latest electronic leak detection equipment to detect the location of the leak so that it can be fixed quickly without tearing down walls or the ceiling to find it and fix it.

A Musty Odor or Smell

Do you smell mildew or a musty odor?  Over time, a consistent leak will provide the humidity necessary for mold to grow.  You may even notice black splotches on the wall outside which is a sign that mold has grown inside the wall.  If you see this, or you smell a musty odor on a regular basis, it’s time to call a plumbing professional immediately.
