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 Santa Fe Springs, California?

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 Santa Fe Springs 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!

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 Santa Fe Springs 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.

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.

Worn Pipe Joints

Curved pipe joints link straight sections together to direct water throughout your home, and they are especially vulnerable to pressure from the high-pressure water or extreme temperatures in your plumbing system over time. These connection points are the weak point of any piping system as welds wear down with age making it easier for them to break under stress. In order for plumbers to be able light fix a problem early on it is important that you identify when these weaknesses show up so that we can take care of things before there’s an issue!

Tree Root Intrusion

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

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.
