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.

Why do slab leaks happen in Lakewood, California?

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

The pipes in your house in Lakewood 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.

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 Lakewood or business- give us a call now!

Tree Root Intrusion

Plumbing leaks happen outside the home sometimes. Tree roots can cause moisture to seep out which may lead to wet patches or sinkholes in your yard, a sudden drop in water pressure, and trees growing near you house! Elder & Young is here for help with leak detection equipment in Lakewood when need be so contact us today if there are any problems at all.

High Water Pressure

Many people don’t take enough time to think about water pressure. For some, the high-pressure stream from a shower is simply too satisfying for words; however, this force can be damaging your plumbing system if it’s not regulated properly. This excess of power will constantly press against the walls in your pipes and joints within them – which are often one of the main reasons these leaks occur. If you hear gurgling or rushing sounds when flushing, turning off/on taps or toilets, then there might just need to be adjustments made on how much pressure is being emitted into those systems so they stay intact over long periods of time without bursting!

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.

Slab leaks are common in Lakewood, California. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

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.

Low Water Pressure

If you’ve noticed a decrease in water pressure that doesn’t seem normal, or you simply have low water pressure, this may be an indication of a water leak either with the water main or the pipes in your home. The severity of the leak may vary from a slight leak to a rupture. If your water pressure seems low and you suspect a leak, it’s a good time to call a professional plumber who has the proper leak detection equipment who can locate a leak and solve your plumbing problems quick.

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!

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.

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.
