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 occur in Santa Fe Springs, California?

Tree Root Intrusion

Most of the time, water leaks originate outside your home. For example, tree roots from near trees could be intruding on pipes and seeping out moisture in wet patches into your yard – which means you need an expert plumber to find a leak quickly with their detection equipment. Trees can cause problems for plumbing systems due to root intrusion!

Old Pipes

Pipes last a while, 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 weakens until eventually it breaks entirely due to rusting or other damage related issues – this is when you start seeing 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 Santa Fe Springs then we would recommend upgrading them with newer pipes before serious 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!

High Water Pressure

It is important to never underestimate the amount of pressure that your pipes are under. Your plumbing system works nonstop for hours at a time, as water flows through it every day in small doses; but when you’re taking a shower or have all of your faucets on and open wide like an elephant’s trunk, whoa! The continuous flow can wear down joints which may lead to leaks into our homes’ ceilings or walls. This issue could be fixed by investing in new copper piping with better quality plumbers union fittings than those we’ve been using since our grandparents were born–or if you don’t want to go quite so high-tech yet still need some TLC from someone qualified, we’re available to help.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging Pipes

Rust and corrosion can be a real threat to your plumbing system as it ages. Corrosion may cause leaks or clogs, so watch out for spots on pipes that could indicate you need to get the problem checked by a professional plumber right away! If there’s more of an issue than what is visible at first glance, consider replacing any high-risk factors like cast iron pipes because over time these will only worsen without proper attention.

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.

Why do slab leaks occur in Santa Fe Springs, California?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
