What Causes Slab Leaks?
When the pipes beneath a concrete slab break, homeowners experience on of the most serious plumbing problems imaginable. One of the leading causes of slab leaks is shifting soil. When the soil shifts due to earthquakes, it is not uncommon for pipes to crack or burst, forming a slab leak. Other causes of slab leaks include thermal expansion, fluctuations in water pressure, clogged pipes, faulty pipe installations, and corroded water lines.
How Do You Know If You Have a Gas Leak?
Understanding the different signs that indicate a gas leak is the first step in protecting your home from irreparable damage.
Signs that you have a gas leak in your home include:
- You can smell sulfur or rotten eggs
- There are hissing sounds coming from your gas lines
- When you rub a wet, soapy wash cloth over your gas line, bubbles form
- You are experiencing unexplained symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, nausea, dizziness, throat irritation, and breathing problems
- Your gas bill was extremely high
- Your pilot light is blue
Signs You Need Water Leak Detection
1. The musky smell of mold or mildew - If you smell this musky odor but can't seem to place it, call in our Garland leak detection specialists. When there's standing water in places with no ventilation, mold and mildew growth is inevitable so catch this problem quickly before it festers.
2. Extra bugs and animals attracted to your yard - If there's a leak in your sewer line, it may be very hard to tell. Look out for extra bugs and animals attracted to your yard as they'll enjoy the additional nutrients in your soil.
3. An unusually high water bill - If there's a leak going unnoticed, then it will likely run up your water bill as more water is used on your property.
4. Cracked wall paint - Not all water leaks are going to produce a noticeable water stain, but even a little bit of water pressure can cause your wall paint to crack so take note of when it does.
5. The water meter test - If you ever want to test to see if you have a leak, simply turn off your water and head to your water meter. If the dial is moving or not at 0, get our leak detection experts in to find the source of your leak.
