Our licensed specialists are able to use a variety of different tools to accurately pinpoint where the leak is on your property. After we have gathered all of the needed information from you about your situation, we will get started with our inspection. During this time, your specialist will start by checking fixtures, sinks, irrigation systems and pool systems to rule out leaks from these sources. Your ABC plumber may then check the water manifolds within your wall, isolating each water supply line to determine which one is leaking. We also have ground microphones and acoustic discs that allow us to hear through the concrete slab to help us determine if you have a slab leak.
What’s tricky about leaks is that we often don’t notice the signs until the problem has become quite significant. To make matters worse, it can be difficult to determine where in your house or yard the leak is coming from.
Signs that you may have a water leak on your property include:
- Unexplained increases on your home’s water bill
- Patches of discoloration on ceilings or walls
- Peeling, blistered or bubbled walls and wallpaper
- Mold or mildew growth inside your home
- Sounds of running water, even when water isn’t turned on
- Damp, soggy spots on the floor, carpet or in your yard
- Musty or moldy odors throughout your home
If you’re experiencing one or more of these signs of a leak, contact ABC. Our licensed specialists will be able to locate where the leak is and then get to work on fixing it.

What is a slab leak and why do they occur?
A slab leak typically occurs when copper pipes become corroded over time. This problem usually starts as a pinhole leak which becomes bigger and bigger. Another reason a slab leak might develop is that the water in your area is particularly hard, which can corrode your pipes at a faster rate. If left unattended, a slab leak could cause the soil around your home to become saturated with water, which in turn can result in water damage, mold growth and even pest problems.
You may have a slab leak if:
- you have seen a spike in your water bill
- water is pooling around the foundation of your home
- your flooring is damp
- your sheetrock or ceiling is cracking
- your water pressure is abnormally low
- your windows and doors aren’t closing properly
You could even see more than some combination of these signs. Because this is a serious plumbing problem, it’s important to get in touch with a professional promptly if you suspect you have this type of leak so you can avoid further damage.
