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 La Habra Heights, California?

Foundation Shifting and Settling

Your plumbing system is more fragile than you might think. One of the reasons for this is that it needs to be flexible enough in order to react with what’s happening around it, and if there are any other problems like erosion or an earthquake then your foundation may shift which will cause everything else connected to it such as water pressure changes and color issues.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

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

Quick Temperature Changes

In La Habra 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.

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.

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 becomes weaker until eventually it breaks entirely due to rusting or other damage related issues – this is when you start noticing leaks in your property which could potentially cause water damage if left unchecked for too long! If you have older pipes like these at home in La Habra Heights then we would recommend replacing them with newer pipes before any serious damages occur!

High Water Pressure

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.

Slab leaks are common in La Habra Heights, California. Here are some of the most common signs.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
