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 San Juan Capistrano, California?

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Corrosion can cause both leaks and clogs in the plumbing system of newer and older homes in San Juan Capistrano, 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

When your water pressure is too high, it can cause a number of pipes and joints in the plumbing system to leak. One way you might notice these leaks are by hearing them when using the toilet or turning on/off your faucet’s hot water. It may be necessary for us to check out this issue with an inspection so that we can make sure everything stays running smoothly!

Foundation Shifting and Settling

The pipes in your house in San Juan Capistrano are 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. The reason why this happens is because sometimes when we’re asleep at night our houses start moving just enough for all these small cracks inside those pipes so even though everything looks fine on the outside things aren’t okay internally meaning now not only do we need help from people who know how fix problems but also companies that deal specifically with pipe repair here in town!

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.

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 normally last for decades, but they won’t last forever. Older pipes may be made from metals that are much more prone to corrosion and when corrosion happens the pipe breaks down until it eventually breaks due to rust or other damage related issues – this is when you start seeing leaks in your property which could potentially cause major problems if left unchecked for too long! If you have worn out pipes like these at home then we would recommend repiping your home as soon as possible because old corroded pipes can lead to serious water leaks!

What are the common signs of slab leaks in San Juan Capistrano, California?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
