Leak Detection & Repair

Some leaks, such as a burst pipe or leak in an exposed pipe, are easy to locate. Other leaks are much more challenging to pinpoint, such as small leaks behind a wall or a leak in the slab. It is useful to know the signs of a plumbing leak, so you can find the problem and get it fixed before your home suffers more damage. 

Signs of a leak include:  

  • Staining on a wall or ceiling 
  • Low water pressure 
  • Higher water bills 
  • Mold or mildew growth 
  • Musty odors 
  • Hot spots on the floor 
  • Bubbling paint or wallpaper
  • Hearing water running when no water is being used

Although finding and fixing a plumbing leak is a job for a qualified plumber, you can detect the presence of a leak using your water meter. Before starting, go around the house and shut off all the faucets and fixtures so no water is used. Check the water meter and wait an hour or two. During this time, make sure not to use any water. Then, check the meter again. If the meter shows water usage, you have a leak somewhere in the system. 

Tracking down leaks that are hidden behind walls, under floors, in the slab, or under the ground requires the right training and equipment. An experienced plumber can identify the cause and location of the leak to determine the most efficient and cost-effective repair.

Causes of Plumbing Leaks 

A leak can develop pretty much anywhere in your plumbing system, from a water line under the kitchen sink to a main line embedded into your foundation. Whether you have a leak in the bathroom or in the slab, an experienced plumber can provide reliable Orange County leak detection and repair. 

Plumbing leaks can be caused by: 

  • Corrosion 
  • High water pressure 
  • Damaged pipe joints or seals 
  • Fluctuating temperatures 
  • Clogs 
  • Ground shifting 
  • Burst pipes 
  • Tree roots growing into a pipe 

Leaks can range from small, hidden leaks to burst pipes that could quickly flood a house. Any leak should be treated as urgent because the leaking water can cause significant damage to furniture, flooring, and even your foundation. Stagnant or spilled water can also impact your water quality, and result in mold growth, depending on the location and severity of the leak. You can minimize the damage by calling a professional as soon as you suspect a leak.
