Types Of Plumbing Leaks
All plumbing leaks must be taken seriously. Even a small leak or annoying drip can quickly turn into a significant leak and an expensive repair bill. The two main categories of plumbing leaks include overt leaks and hidden leaks.
Overt Plumbing Leaks
These are the leaks that you can actually see or possibly hear. Common examples of overt leaks are dripping faucets or showerheads, running toilets or that annoying leak under the sink that keeps making a moist area in your cabinetry. Overt leaks are the ones that you see and know should be fixed. However, they often get overlooked until you see that your water bill is beginning to increase. These are also leaks that are a signal that you might have a water valve that is starting to fail, or a tiny hole in a pipe or fitting that will only increase over time. Never look past these small leaks. Call (818) 740-6830 and schedule an appointment for a Turbo Plumbing and Rooter professionals to come to your home and fix the issue before it causes significant water damage and even creates a health risk.
Hidden Plumbing Leaks
These are the leaks that you never know about until you suddenly get a huge water bill, notice that the water pressure in your house is lower, find a wet area in your home, or begin to notice a musty or damp odor in your home. When any of these happen, you need to immediately call (818) 740-6830 to schedule a same-day appointment with a Turbo Plumbing and Rooter leak detection specialist. Most often, these hidden leaks are under the slab foundation of your home and can only be located by a skilled professional and the use of the latest leak detection technology.
What Is A Slab Leak?
Many homes are built on a concrete foundation or slab with no basement or crawl space. These are referred to as slab homes. When these homes are built, the plumbing pipes are run before the foundation is poured. The pipes run up through the concrete to the different rooms in your home. On occasion, these pipes develop a leak which is called a slab leak because of the location under the slab of your home.
How Are Slab Leaks Located?
In years past, a plumber or handyman would begin cutting holes in the foundation of your home to try to locate a slab leak. However, fortunately, the processes and technology used in leak detection are now far superior to a concrete saw and a sledgehammer. At Turbo Plumbing and Rooter our leak detection specialists are highly trained in using electronic tools that amplify the sound of running water.
These tools will allow our plumber pinpoint the leak by following the sound to its loudest point. And the best news for you is that these units are designed to function through your concrete foundation. In cases where sound detection is not conclusive, our plumbers can isolate specific plumbing lines for pressure testing. This process will determine which line is leaking and must be repaired or replaced.
How Are Slab Leaks Repaired?
The location of the leak will often determine the best solution for repair. In cases where the leak is near the edge of the concrete slab, our plumbers can often dig under the concrete to access and repair the leak. When the pipe is not reachable from the edge of the foundation, another option is to abandon the leaking pipe and reroute a pipe through the walls, floor, or even attic of your home. In most cases, this causes minimal damage and will restore water to your entire home while eliminating the leak.
When both of those options are not suitable, our plumber will cut a small hole in the concrete to expose the leak and repair it. Once the leak is fixed, and the lines are all pressure tested, the concrete is patched. While this is more invasive to your home, in some cases, it is the only option to eliminate the slab leak.
