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.

Why do slab leaks happen in Cowan Heights, California?

High Water Pressure

Many people don’t take enough time to think about water pressure. For some, the high-pressure stream from a shower is simply too satisfying for words; however, this force can be damaging your plumbing system if it’s not regulated properly. This excess of power will constantly press against the walls in your pipes and joints within them – which are often one of the main reasons these leaks occur. If you hear gurgling or rushing sounds when flushing, turning off/on taps or toilets, then there might just need to be adjustments made on how much pressure is being emitted into those systems so they stay intact over long periods of time without bursting!

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Rust and corrosion can be a real threat to your plumbing system as it ages. Corrosion may cause leaks or clogs, so watch out for spots on pipes that could indicate you need to get the problem checked by a professional plumber right away! If there’s more of an issue than what is visible at first glance, consider replacing any high-risk factors like cast iron pipes because over time these will only worsen without proper attention.

Tree Root Intrusion

Why are you still standing in the middle of your yard, looking for wet patches and sinkholes? Call Cowan Heights’s favorite plumbers at Elder & Young now! Our leak detection equipment will find the leaks while we fix them quickly.

Old Pipes

Pipes last years, but they won’t last forever. Older pipes are made from materials that are subject to corrosion, such as iron. When corrosion occurs the pipe breaks down until eventually it breaks entirely due to rusting or other damage related problems – this is when you start recognizing leaks in your property which could potentially cause damage if left unchecked for too long! If you have older pipes like these at home in Cowan Heights then we would recommend upgrading them with newer ones before costly damages occur!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

The pipes in your house in Cowan Heights 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.

Quick Temperature Changes

In Cowan Heights, California this isn’t as much of a problem as it is in colder climates. Even still, the changes in temperature can cause your pipes to expand and contract. Over years, the expansion and contraction will eventually cause joints and connections to wear down. It’s a good idea to have your plumbing system pressure tested regularly so that we can help you find any leaks before they become serious problems. If you would like your plumbing system pressure tested by a professional plumber, give Elder and Young a call now and we’ll get you on the schedule.

Why do slab leaks happen in Cowan Heights, California?

Sudden Cracks in the Foundation, Low Spots in Pavement and Potholes

When water seeps into the foundation of your house, that’s when things get really serious! Not only will we have to worry about cracks in our walls and ceilings but also structural components like the beams supporting floors above us. This is where leaking water can become dangerous: not just surface level damage but now actual structural problems as well! You never want an issue this big sitting around without being addressed. If you notice cracks in the foundation, contact a plumber right away so that they can inspect the property for leaks using the latest leak detection equipment.

Dark Areas on Concrete, Warped Flooring, Lifting Tiles, Wet Areas on the Floor or Carpet

Leaking water damages homes by seeping into their foundation and weakening structural components like walls, floors, and ceilings over time; this in turn causes cracks throughout your house. Unchecked leaking water is an all-around bad situation for homeowners because it not only affects the appearance of a property but also its safety – if left alone long enough, leakage could lead to demolition needs or expensive repair jobs as well! If you notice any of these issues, contact a plumber for help immediately!

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.

Water in the Street

It is important to know the signs of a leaking main water line. When there’s nowhere for the overflow from your pipe to go, it will often seep up right in front of your home at the street! If you notice bubbling water on the street then they should contact a professional plumber immediately before any more damage can be done.

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.
