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.

What causes slab leaks in Costa Mesa, California?

High Water Pressure

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

Most people don’t think about water pressure. We all like the fell of a lot of pressure in the shower, however this pressure is also constantly pressing against the interior walls of the pipes in your plumbing system. This pressure is also causing pressure on the plumbing joints. As mentioned earlier, the joints are one of the most common causes of these leaks. If you hear your plumbing when you flush your toilet, or when you turn your water on or off, you may need to have your water pressure checked and regulated.

Foundation Shifting and Settling

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

One of the most important factors that go into determining someone’s home is their piping system, and it needs to be checked regularly for any potential problems. One reason why pipes in your house are more fragile than you might think is because they have to move with what’s happening around them- so if there has been an earthquake or natural disaster nearby then this will affect every aspect including water pressure changes which can cause plumbing issues like color changes.

Quick Temperature Changes

It’s important to keep your plumbing system in good working order. As the temperature changes, pipes can expand and contract over time causing joints and connections to wear down. Elder & Young offers pressure testing services so we can help you find any leaks early on before they become a serious problem for you home in Costa Mesa or business- give us a call now!

Tree Root Intrusion

Worn Pipe Joints

Elder & Young - Water Leak Detection Services

Curved pipe joints are the weakest points in your plumbing system and often cause leaks. The best thing you can do is have them fixed early on so it’s easier for plumbers to fix them when they arise!

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Pipe Corrosion leads to leaks - Elder & Young Plumbing Company

Corrosion can cause both leaks and clogs in the plumbing system of newer and older homes in Costa Mesa, so it is important to watch out for any spots or other forms of corrosion on your pipes. If you see this problem develop gradually over time, consider replacing pipes made from cast iron because they will only get worse as time goes by due to their susceptibility.

What causes slab leaks in Costa Mesa, California?

Higher Than Normal Water Bills

A lot of leaks go unnoticed, especially leaks related to outdoor plumbing and the main water line that feeds the house. These lines are often very old and they are some of the most common to break down over the years. If your water usage has not increased, but your bill has, you may have a water leak. This leak could be anywhere on your property so it’s important to have your plumbing system inspected for leaks by a leak detection specialist.

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.

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.

The Water Meter Runs When Nothing is Turned On

One of the easiest things a homeowner can do to understand if they have a water leak or not is to use the water meter as a measuring device. If all of your appliances and fixtures are turned off, including your water heater, and your water meter continues to run, it’s a tell tale sign that you have a leak. This is also the most important time to call a plumber and schedule a service call so that the plumber can perform a leak detection service and find the source of the leak.

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.
