Common Signs of a Leak

While many individuals associate the dripping sound to leaks, there are other signs to look for. Your plumbing units are intricate and complex, rendering some leaks unnoticeable. However, you can look for certain signs to help protect your home and business against water damage.

Signs of a faucet leak:

  • High water bill
  • Squeaky faucets
  • Rust or water puddles
  • Constant dripping
  • Growing mold

Signs of a slab leak:

  • Cracks in flooring and walls
  • Sounds of running water, when water is off
  • Mildew and mold under floors and carpets
  • Hot spots under flooring

Signs of a toilet leak:

  • Tank constantly filling
  • Strange sounds
  • Pools of water near toilet
  • Uneven tiles

Repairs & Water Leak Solutions

Toilet Leaks

If the flange on your toilet is to blame for the leak, you have a couple of options:

  • For loose flanges, it simply needs to be tightened

  • For flanges that are too low, a hard plastic flange riser can be installed over the existing flange

  • For broken flanges, a metal repair flange will need to be installed

Faucet Leaks

Depending on the type of leak that has appeared in your kitchen or bathroom, you have two main options:

  • If the basket strainer is leaking, the ring has to be tightened or the strainer may need to be reassembled entirely.

  • For slip joint leaks, the slip nut needs to be tightened.

Slab Leaks

This type of leak repair typically requires an experienced San Diego plumber, as they are leaks underneath the slab concrete of your house:

  • Re-piping is essential for when there are multiple leaks that require replacing the piping with brand new piping. It is heavily invasive as it requires cutting into your floors and slab.

  • Pipe relining involves pushing new pipelining through a broken sewer pipe to help seal up all of the places where there are leaks. This is also known as trenchless pipe repair and necessitates a professional plumber to handle this type of repair.
