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 La Habra, California. Here are some of the most frequent causes.

Worn Pipe Joints

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!

Old Pipes

Pipes can last a while, but they won’t last forever. Older pipes are made from materials that are much more prone to corrosion, such as iron. When corrosion occurs, the pipe weakens and begins breaking down until eventually it breaks entirely due to rusting or other damage related issues – this is when you start recognizing leaks in your property which could cause major issues if left unchecked for too long! If you have older pipes like these at home in La Habra then we would recommend upgrading them with newer pipes.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

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

High Water Pressure

It is important to never underestimate the amount of pressure that your pipes are under. Your plumbing system works nonstop for hours at a time, as water flows through it every day in small doses; but when you’re taking a shower or have all of your faucets on and open wide like an elephant’s trunk, whoa! The continuous flow can wear down joints which may lead to leaks into our homes’ ceilings or walls. This issue could be fixed by investing in new copper piping with better quality plumbers union fittings than those we’ve been using since our grandparents were born–or if you don’t want to go quite so high-tech yet still need some TLC from someone qualified, we’re available to help.

Quick Temperature Changes

The pipes in your home in La Habra 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!

Tree Root Intrusion

Rest assured that with the help of an expert plumber from Elder & Young, we’ll use our leak detection equipment to find and fix your plumbing problems quickly.

Slab leaks are common in La Habra, California. Here are some of the most frequent causes.

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.

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.

Puddles Inside or Outside Your Home

If you have water accumulating or puddling inside or outside your home, whether it be in a walkway, or on a floor, it could be an indicator of a water leak in the pipes. While some problems are easier to diagnose and detect, the leaks inside walls and underground are more challenging and special leak detection equipment may be necessary. If you suspect a leak that you can’t see, call us to schedule a service call immediately.

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.

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.
