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 Seal Beach, California?

Quick Temperature Changes

In Seal Beach, California this isn’t as much of a problem as it is in colder climates. Even still, the changes in temperature can cause your pipes to expand and contract. Over years, the expansion and contraction will eventually cause joints and connections to wear down. It’s a good idea to have your plumbing system pressure tested regularly so that we can help you find any leaks before they become serious problems. If you would like your plumbing system pressure tested by a professional plumber, give Elder and Young a call now and we’ll get you on the schedule.

Old Pipes

Pipes can last for years, but they won’t last forever. The original pipes may be made from metals that can be weakened by corrosion and when corrosion starts the pipe weakens 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 older 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 damage!

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.

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 Seal Beach when need be so contact us today if there are any problems at all.

Worn Pipe Joints

The water in your home in Seal Beach may not be flowing as smoothly and efficiently as it should. Have you ever wondered why? Curved pipe joints link straight sections together to direct the flow of water throughout your plumbing system, but they are also vulnerable to pressure from high-pressure or extreme temperatures within our piping over time. These connection points can cause leaks if welds become weaker with age due to a constant change in water pressure which causes these joints flexing on themselves more often than not rather then holding strong against any kind of force that comes their way! It’s best for plumbers who have identified problems early before there is an issue at all because solving them will take less effort overall – saving you lots of money in repair bills down the line!!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
