When to Have Slab Leak Detection Services

A slab leak refers to a leakage in the plumbing system within the concrete foundation of a property. Detecting this type of leak can be challenging. Here are the indications of slab leaks:

Discoloration on Walls and Floors  

You might spot yellow stains from moisture seeping through cracks or white patches caused by mineral buildup. Don't let these issues go unnoticed.

Warm Spots on Floors 

Warm spots on floors or walls near your home's foundation indicate a slab leak, resulting from hot water leaking from pipes beneath the concrete slab and heating the surrounding area.

Visible Cracks in Walls or Floors 

Visible cracks in walls or floors may indicate a slab leak in your home's plumbing system. These cracks may appear around windows or doors, usually accompanied by dampness or mold growth in these areas.

Musty Odors 

Musty odors from floors or walls are caused by moisture seeping through cracks and into the surrounding materials, creating an unpleasant smell throughout the house if left unchecked for too long. 

Low Water Pressure  

Low pressure can be caused by various issues, including pipe blockage. However, one potential cause could be failing pipe joints at the point where they meet the concrete foundation. Furthermore, this could indicate a potential slab leak.

The Sound of Running Water 

Even if homeowners turn off taps and can still hear running water, it may indicate a slab leak underneath their home's foundation. This sound is usually louder when standing near walls or other surfaces near the concrete foundation.

Don't Let A Slab Leak Take You By Surprise

Slab leaks can be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive to repair, especially when you don't know what is causing them. If early identification of slab leaks occurs, they can be addressed more effectively with minimal cost and disruption to the structure of your property. Nevertheless, learning about common causes of slab leaks and how best to repair them can help avoid the risk of damage to their homes and take preventative measures.

Factors that May Cause a Slab Leak

Various factors can influence the occurrence of a slab leak, and identifying the primary cause can help prevent a reoccurrence. One significant factor is soil erosion, which can cause the soil underneath the foundation to shift, ultimately resulting in a break in the water lines. Another possible cause is improper installation or damaged pipes. If pipes are not installed correctly or subjected to high pressure, it can lead to corrosion and eventual failure. Additionally, environmental factors such as high water pressure and extreme temperature changes can cause pipes to weaken and break. 

Don't Wait for Leaks: Prevent Them

Prevention is key to avoiding the inconvenience that comes with water leaks. Homeowners and business owners can take several steps to prevent water leaks. Regular inspection of plumbing and appliances is an excellent first step. Regular maintenance of plumbing systems, such as fixing drips and leaks promptly, can go a long way in preventing larger issues down the line. Inspect seals around windows, doors, and roofs, as these areas are common culprits of water infiltration. Furthermore, installing water alarms and shutting off valves when away from the property can provide peace of mind and help mitigate potential damage.

Finding Leaks Quickly with BIG B's Leak Detection Services 

The leak detection service provided by Big B's starts with a visual inspection of the area to identify any potential sources of leaks. It includes checking for cracks, holes, or other damage in walls, floors, ceilings, pipes, and other structures that could be causing water loss. After the initial visual inspection, pressure testing will identify hidden leaks in hard-to-reach areas such as underground pipes and drains. Pressure testing involves pumping water into the system at a higher-than-normal pressure and monitoring it for any pressure drops that could indicate a leak. On the other hand, moisture detection involves using specialized equipment to measure moisture levels within an area, which can help determine if any hidden leaks are present that are not visible during a visual inspection or other types of tests—and lastly, thermal imaging technology. It uses infrared radiation to detect temperature variations that may indicate the presence of a leak. Additionally, thermal imaging allows professionals to quickly identify the problem area without causing major disruption to the surrounding environment.

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...
