Frequently Asked Plumbing Questions
What Is A Slab Leak?
A slab leak occurs when one of the pipes running through your home’s foundation cracks or forms a hole. Water escaping inside your foundation is notoriously tricky to identify and troubleshoot due to the weight and structural importance of your foundation.
How Do I Know If I Have A Slab Leak?
Some of the signs of a slab leak include damp flooring, warped walls and doors, water trickling from the slab, sudden increases in water consumption, mold growth and sounds of running water.
What Is Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation?
Repairing a sewer or water pipe traditionally requires digging up that section of the pipe. With non-invasive methods like trenchless rehabilitation, pipes can be repaired or strengthened without excavation measures. Common methods include pipe bursting and slip lining.
How Do I Know If I Need A Drain Cleaning?
If your water drains slowly, foul odors are present or the drain is clogged completely, you need drain cleaning services. You may also take advantage of drain cleaning as a preventative measure to avoid major drain clogs!
Why Is Leak Detection Important?
Water moves extremely fast once it escapes its designated pipe. Professional leak detection allows the water to be found and stopped before it can do major damage to your home.
Why Is My Water Pressure So Low?
There are many reasons why your water pressure could be low, including blocked pipes, pressure changes, pipe leaks, outdated fixtures and even your water heater.
What Is The Difference Between A Slab Leak And A Water Leak?
The difference between a regular water leak and a slab leak is all about location. A water leak that happens inside the foundation of your home is called a slab leak. Slab leaks are historically more difficult to recognize and repair since they might require excavation or access through your existing slab.
