Big demand for plumbing services in Escondido

At Big B's Plumbing, we've been providing Escondido slab leak repair and detection services for over a decade. No homeowner wants to experience a slab leak. The fact is, most homeowners don't even know what a slab leak is. A slab leak is a term that refers to a leak in your home's concrete foundation. Slab leaks appear over time in copper or galvanized steel water lines. You might think, "How could a pipe leak while encased in concrete?" This scenario mostly occurs in older homes, and the first culprit is poor installation. If water pipes were kinked or dented during installation, the affected area could cause the pipe to leak, especially if the foundation has shifted. 

If You Suspect A Slab Leak, Big B's Plumbing Has You Covered!

Most of us know Escondido is Spanish for "hidden." Some sources said "hidden" refers to a secret water source, while others say it's a hidden treasure. Whatever the case, Escondido is no longer a hidden city. It has become one of those iconic cities with a Spanish culture flowing through it. In the '90s, Escondido had a 68% growth; by 2000, it grew another 22.9%. New homes, along with old nostalgic neighborhoods, have created a demand for plumbing services in Escondido. Unfortunately, many of the homes in Escondido are old and prone to slab leaks. If you suspect you have a slab leak, call your Escondido slab leak repair and detection company,  Big B's Plumbing.

We're Your Escondido Slab Leak Repair And Detection Specialist

By nature, copper is a soft material. If the smallest stone in the concrete settles against the pipe for 20, 30, or even 40 years, it can create a pinhole slab leak that can cause severe damage. Additionally, corroded pipes caused by years of hard water can cause a slab leak, most notably in galvanized steel pipes. Any above issues, combined with shifting soil, are a recipe for disaster. It's no mystery that California is infamous for turning soil caused by earthquakes. Poor drainage caused by negative slopes and standing water can also cause a foundation to move. The slab leak detection and repair team at Big B's Plumbing can have your home back on track, giving you the peace of mind you need. 

Know The Signs Of A Slab Leak

Now that you know what causes a slab leak, check out the signs to tell if your home is experiencing one. There is a spike in your water bill. Maybe your carpet is damp, or your hardwood floors have warped? In some cases, you can smell mildew coming from your carpet, and mold is visible on the baseboards. Have you noticed that your water pressure has dropped? Some homeowners will experience their water heater continually running, and areas on their floor may be warm. These are all sure signs that you have a slab leak. Allow your slab leak repair and detection specialist at Big B's Plumbing to locate and repair the leak quickly.

How Can A Homeowner Check For A Slab Leak?

  1. Remove the top of the water meter. You can usually locate it near the street in front of your home. Your meter will have a triangular dial, sometimes a round one. These are called leak indicators or flow indicators. They are spinning when the water is on.
  2. Make sure all the water in your home is off.
  3. With all the water shut off in your home, look closely at your meter to see if the leak indicator is moving. If it is, then you have a water leak in your home. 
  4. DON'T STOP! Most homes have a shut-off valve to their irrigation system. Locate it and shut off the water to your irrigation. 
  5. Recheck your meter. If the leak indicator is moving, then the leak is in the irrigation. If it stops, then the leak is in the home.

A Slab Leak Repair Causes Concerns About Repair Costs

When a homeowner experiences a slab leak, they're not only stressed about the leak; they also have concerns about the repair and cost. Another major concern is that total strangers will be walking in and out of your home, fixing their slab leak. We've taken much of the concern about who is coming in and out of your home. At Big B's Plumbing, we've hired a third-party company called to run sex offender and criminal background checks on anyone who enters your home. 

These safety checks also include anyone who handles credit card transactions. Once employees pass the check, they receive a picture ID card with a QR code to confirm. Unfortunately, not every plumbing company that says they complete background checks actually does. When you need a slab leak repair and detection company, Big B's Plumbing has you covered.

What People Are Saying...

I called Big B's Plumbing because I the hot water would not turn off in our master bathroom. I tried to turn the valve off under the sink and it broke off, so I had to shut off the main water to the house. It was noticeable the valves were original to the home. When I called, the rep stated that I would be informed about the service tech and their experience along with services offered "On The Spot". I was on a bit of a time crunch...

Found them on Google and they had good quality reviews. Made the call and set up the appointment for same day. Dispatch called me a few hours later to confirm our appointment and let me know that the technician Mathew was on the way. This was supposed to be an easy job once Mathew arrived. But it turned out to be so much more than that. Without hesitation or a sour look on his face, he dove deep into his van...
