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 are the common causes of slab leaks in Harbor Island, 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!

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 Harbor Island or business- give us a call now!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

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.

Tree Root Intrusion

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!

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Corrosion can cause both leaks and clogs in the plumbing system of newer and older homes in Harbor Island, 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.

Old Pipes

When pipes start to break down, most homeowners don’t notice the damage until leaks occur. And once a leak happens – you can be sure that major issues are on their way! Older pipes in homes will have corroded materials such as iron and steel which only make them more prone to breaking down or rusting over time. When this occurs it’s best for repipe with newer equipment like copper pipe plumbing products or PEX offered by our company for plumbing services today in Harbor Island before the problem gets worse!

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.
