In case you have a leaking pipe beneath your home it can cause lots of destruction if not looked after right away. Generally a leak under your home is caused by a leaking water line or sewage line. Garden Grove Plumbing could go to your property, find the reason behind your leak, and repair it promptly.
You can find out whether you have got a slab leak by detecting the presence of wet areas on the floor. The other giveaway that you have a slab leak is if you hear the sound of water running through your feet. Sewer lines could be much more challenging to see. Nearly all sewer line leaks go undetected until there are noticeable signs of foundation damage. Normally when sewer lines leak for a while the slab itself will start swell up. As a property owner you should keep on the lookout for almost any dome or raised section on the floor of your property.
Other common signs that you have a slab leak:
• When your water bill goes up each month for no noticeable cause
• You can plainly see cracks in your foundation
• Grass all around your foundation develops unevenly compared to grass elsewhere on your property
• You have warm spots in your floor (normally from a leaky hot water line)
• In case you have wooden floors you might even see darkening in the wood
• You could smell a foul odor coming from the ground or the walls. It is generally from a leak in the sewer line.
Even the tiniest of leaks in your house can be extremely devastating for the home.
Garden Grove Plumbing has long been detecting slab leaks and restoring them since 1985. We’ve got the experience and knowledge to detect any slab leak. There are many techniques that we utilize for detecting slab leaks: 1) we utilize specific listening equipment to discover the sound of leaking water 2) we have electronic tools that can help us discover the existence of water below the ground.
As soon as we find the source of a leak, we access it. If the leak is beneath concrete we will, generally, break up the nearby concrete until we expose the dirt and the pipe below it. Once the line is found we cut off the damaged part (after turning off water to your house if it’s a water line) and change it with a new piece that could last a long time.
