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 are the frequent causes of slab leaks in Ladera Ranch, California?

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.

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.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Rust and corrosion can be a real issue for plumbing systems as they age, including both newer and older homes in Ladera Ranch. Corrosion can cause both leaks and can also lead to clogs. Watch out for spots or other forms of corrosion on your pipes, which may indicate that you need to have them looked at by a professional plumber right away! If the problem appears more severe than it is, consider replacing any pipes with high risk factors- like ones made from cast iron – because over time these will only get worse and require significant repairs later. Corrosion also happens under the home, inside the concrete slabs or in dirt if the pipes covering has broken down. Concrete and dirt will chemically react with the metal causing the pipes to break down. Pipe corrosion is one of the leading causes of a slab leak.

Old Pipes

Pipes can last for decades, but they won’t last forever. Older pipes are made from materials that can be prone to corrosion, such as iron. When corrosion occurs, the pipe weakens 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 major damage if left unchecked for too long! If you have older pipes like these at home in Ladera Ranch then we often recommend repiping.

Quick Temperature Changes

To keep your plumbing system in the best shape possible, it’s important to have regular pressure tests. We can help you find any leaks before they become a problem and save you money on repairs down the line! In California this isn’t as much of a problem as it is in colder climates. Even still, over time pipes will eventually wear out if not maintained properly due to expansion and contraction from temperature changes. Elder & Young Plumbing Services offers yearly inspections for these types of issues for homes in Ladera Ranch so that we can get them fixed early instead of risking an expensive repair later on – give us call now or fill out our online request form today!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

The pipes in your house in Ladera Ranch 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.

What are the common signs of slab leaks in Ladera Ranch, California?

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. 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.

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.

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.
