Depending on the condition of the pipes and the materials used, a repipe is sometimes recommended.

What causes slab leaks in Downey, California?

Worn Pipe Joints

Curved pipe joints link straight sections together to direct water throughout your home, and they are especially vulnerable to pressure from the high-pressure water or extreme temperatures in your plumbing system over time. These connection points are the weakest point of any piping system. As a welds age, it becomes weaker and often leaks within walls because every change in temperature affects them too much as well – so be sure you can identify these worn joint problems early on!

Old Pipes

Pipes normally last for years, but they won’t last forever. The original pipes may be made from materials that can be damaged by corrosion and when corrosion starts the pipe weakens until it eventually breaks due to rust or other damage related issues – this is when you start seeing leaks in your property which could potentially cause major problems if left unchecked for too long! If you have older pipes like these at home then we would recommend repiping your home as soon as possible because old corroded piping can lead to serious water leakages and damages!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

The pipes in your house in Downey 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. If this happens, don’t panic! The first step should be turning off all appliances so nothing gets damaged even further; next call for professional help because these situations aren’t going anywhere on their own anytime soon.

Tree Root Intrusion

If you notice any new wet patches in your yard, a sudden drop in water pressure, or if trees are growing near to the house then there could be an intrusion from those pesky root systems! Rest assured with the help of our expert plumbers at Elder & Young. We’ll use leak detection equipment and fix up that plumbing problem quickly for you.

Quick Temperature Changes

The pipes in your home in Downey are likely to expand and contract due to temperature changes, which can lead them wear down over time. At Elder and Young Plumbing we offer pressure tests for this reason so you know what potential problems lie ahead before they become serious ones. Give us a call today if you want one of our specialists do an inspection at your convenience!

High Water Pressure

You know how you feel like the water pressure in a shower is good? Well, that same amount of force also applies to your plumbing system. The pressure from this has been known to cause pipe leaks and joint failures which can lead to more costly repairs! You might want to make sure Downey’s city inspector or a local plumber checks on these things before it starts leading into bigger problems down the road.

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!

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 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.
