Slab Leak Repair Services in San Mateo, CA

Slab leaks under a home can lead to costly repairs if they are not properly detected and corrected. If the slab for your home has begun to settle, then the soil may be eroding under your house due to a slab leak. A leak in the plumbing under your slab can be repaired by hiring an experienced plumbing company.

Symptoms of a Slab Leak

A common symptom of leaking under a slab is the sound of running water when no water is being used. Your floor may also have a warm spot that is due to a leak in a hot water pipe. You may also see a crack on the walls or on different areas of the floor. Cracks result from a void under the slab due to a leaking water pipe. Another symptom of a slab leak is an abnormally high utility bill.

The costs of Lost Water

A leak under your slab can be worse than a dripping faucet. This means that you could be losing three to four gallons of water a day. If you live in a city with municipal water, then the cost of sewer use is often tied to water use. If you compare utility bills from previous months, then any significant increase is a sign of a possible slab leak.

Detecting a Slab Leak

The old method of breaking into a concrete slab to find a leak is no longer preferable. New methods for finding a slab leak are available that include the use of sound amplification equipment and electromagnetic detectors to find a pipe buried underground. Minimal destruction to the slab is then used to repair a leak or bad section of pipe. If the floor is tiled, then only a single tile typically needs to be removed.

Leak Repair Options

A leak repair specialist has a variety of options for repairing a slab leak once it is detected. The most widely used method is a spot repair. This involves drilling a small hole at the location of the leak and making necessary repairs. Another option is to re-pipe the line. Re-piping is the process or replacing all the pipes that are leaking.

What Our Customers are Saying

This is the 1st time that I used James Caccia Plumbing and it will not be the last. I called early Monday morning to schedule an appointment for a clogged drain. They were able to provide me service the same day. They gave me a window from 2-4pm for service and they said that they would call if they could come earlier. They called 30 minutes prior to arrival for a 2pm start. My technician's name was Denver and he was fantastic. He gave a free estimate and clearly explained the scope of work prior to service. When the job was bigger than anticipated and he needed assistance with equipment, the office was able to quickly respond and send another tech for assistance so I did not have to re-schedule. Daniel was the 2nd tech and he was also great. They worked their butts off and were positive, friendly, and very focused. They did a great job and were thorough checking that everything was working properly before they left. Their work area was also cleaner that it was when they started. Thanks for a great service experience.
