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.

How soon can you come out?

We understand that if you suspect you have water leaking in and around your home, you want to take care of the problem promptly. Give us a call or schedule an appointment online and we will send a specialist to your home as soon as possible.

Where might I have a water leak?

You may have a number of places where water is leaking, including:

  • Toilets
  • Water supply lines
  • Faucets
  • Showers and tubs
  • Washing machines
  • Dishwashers

If you have a leak in a water supply line or in a connection that is hidden out of sight, it can be extremely difficult to identify the source of the problem without the help of a professional who can use specialized tools to troubleshoot the issue. Fortunately, the pros at ABC will be able to quickly locate and repair nearly any water leak in your home.

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.

Can you also repair my leak once you find it?

Absolutely! Our plumbers can take the steps necessary to fix nearly any leak you have on your property, whether it’s a leaking toilet, sink or even a slab leak. If we do find a leak on your property, we will present you with a quote before we begin make all needed plumbing repairs.

“Got my water heater replaced today. It's not cheap but they're price is more reasonable than the other 2 plumbing companies that I have it quoted with, plus I felt like the other 2 are not really interested in doing business with me so I decided to go with ABC Home and Commercial and I'm so thankful that I did. Mike and Devin came in and Mike was right on time. Both of them did a wonderful job. They were quick and very efficient and did a good job in protecting my newly installed wood floor on the second floor. Mike is quick to respond when I have questions about the automated shut off valve. Special thanks to Miguel also for a quick email response. I would highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs.”

“We had water seeping in between the vinyl flooring of our master closet. It was a very small amount yet they were able to definitively determine where the leak was coming from and repair it. It was coming the hot water pipe that feeds the master shower and it was in the foundation. They located the pipe at the manifold and rerouted through the attic. Very little in the way of holes to the sheet rock were made. Jon Day was masterful and extremely thorough, taking care that everything was thoroughly checked and validated. I absolutely recommend them for all your plumbing needs.”
