Slab Leak Repair in San Diego, CA

Any plumbing repair can be an annoyance, but none seem so disastrous as a slab leak. A slab leak, one that occurs underneath the concrete slab upon which most residences in San Diego sit, is difficult to repair, and sometimes harder to detect. Luckily, J Geyer Plumbing, Inc. is always here to help.

We can find the most cost-effective method to repair a slab leak. Unfortunately, some insurance companies just won't cover leak, so we are prepared to make it as easy on you as possible. We have Hi-Tech Leak Detection equipment, and we are prepared to reroute pipes or repipe your home if necessary, although we will always look for the simplest repair. Trust the care and expertise of our team! Give us a call to schedule slab leak repair services in San Diego, CA and the surrounding area.

How Can You Tell You Have a Slab Leak?

A slab leak can be slow and diabolical, or it can be quite apparent if water pressure is lost from all of your pipes and fixtures at once, or if water makes its way into the rooms of your home. We want every homeowner to know about some of the most subtle signs of a slab leak. When you detect any of these problems, call our plumbers and get the problem under control ASAP.

  • You may hear the sound of rushing water underneath your property, with no indication of water.
  • You may notice that hot water pressure drops, or that there is no hot water, because leaks often occur in the hot water lines.
  • Your water bills or water meter usage may rise quickly.
  • You may notice a warm spot on the floor if the hot water line leaks.
  • Cracks may appear in the walls or baseboard.

Why Does a Slab Leak Occur?

A slab leak may appear for any of several reasons. There may be ground movement somewhere around the area of the pipe, such as nearby construction or even an earthquake that forces the pipe to break open. It may even be that the pipes are not installed very securely in the first place, meaning they were likely to break with time.

Of course, it could just be that the pipes are old. Once piping starts to corrode, there is no turning back. You will need to replace them—hopefully before a slab leak damages the property. Hot water lines are more likely to leak than cold water lines, in part because of the constant temperature changes and the way they react with the soil around the pipes.
