We are not alarmists here at The Sunny Plumber Tucson. Every plumbing problem has a solution, even if that solution is a bigger undertaking than you’d like it to be. When you work with us, you can count on the right solutions to be implemented for any and all problems at hand. Even we’ll admit, however, that you are right to be concerned about a slab leak in Tucson. The slab leak has a well-earned reputation as one of the most serious plumbing issues around.
A big reason for this is the fact that slab leaks are just so tough to recognize. We excel in the detection and repair of slab leaks, but that really doesn’t amount to much if you don’t realize that there is a problem in need of our attention in the first place. So read on, learn more about what slab leaks may mean for you, and remember to contact us if you notice any of the symptoms outlined that could suggest a slab leak in your home.
What to Look For. And Listen For. And Feel For. And—Well, You Get the Picture.
Slab leaks are nefarious for their sneakiness and the damage that they can do to homes. That does not mean, however, that they are undetectable. It does mean, of course, that you need to know what you should be on the lookout for in terms of spotting slab leaks in your home.
Many of the symptoms that indicate a slab leak closely resemble those symptoms indicating leaks in general. Think of issues such as rising water bills, despite the fact that you are not actually using more water than usual, as well as the sound of running water when none is in use and even lower water pressure in certain areas.
There are some tip-offs unique to slab leaks as well, though. These include cracks in your home’s concrete slab, hot spots under your feet, wet carpeting, and water stains at the base of walls. If you notice any of these issues, then it is definitely time to schedule service with a trained professional that you can trust.
What’s to Be Done?
There are multiple ways in which we may go about fixing your slab leak. Relining the pipe is one great option. Jackhammering the foundation to get to the pipe is another, should replacing the section that is leaking be the best solution in your case. (Don’t worry, we don’t have to go into that process blind!) Of course, rerouting your water supply so that it does not have to pass beneath your concrete slab is another option to consider.
Ultimately, acting fast is the first step toward successfully completing your slab leak services. The last thing that you want is to be dealing with issues like mold growth or even structural instability due to a slab leak. So just let us know if you have any concerns.
