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 Palma, California. Here are some of the most common causes.

Tree Root Intrusion

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

Old Pipes

Pipes last decades, 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 seeing 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 La Palma then we would recommend replacing them with newer pipes before costly damages occur!

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!

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.

Quick Temperature Changes

In La Palma, 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. Find the coupon on this page for a Free Pressure Check.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Time is your enemy when it comes to plumbing problems. If you see rust and corrosion on the pipes in your home, don’t wait around- call a professional plumber right away! What’s more, if there are any spots or other signs of damage that may be caused by corroding metal, then this will only get worse over time and become even harder for anyone else to fix later down the line. So if you notice these kinds of issues happening at all, consider replacing any problematic piping materials with something new like PVC as soon as possible because they won’t cause long term trouble either way.

What are the common symptoms of slab leaks in La Palma, California?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
