Signs of Hidden Plumbing Leaks

A leaking pipe under the kitchen sink is easy to diagnose. However, hidden leaks are significantly more challenging. Most of your home plumbing system is found behind walls, in ceilings, under your expensive flooring, or under the ground running up to your house. This creates unique challenges for locating the source of a plumbing leak. Being aware of the signs of a possible leak can help you find the problem sooner and prevent further damage to your home.

Signs that indicate a possible leak include:

  • An unexplained increase in water bills
  • Mold or mildew growth
  • Water stains on the ceilings
  • Water damage on walls or floors
  • A musty odor in your house

If you have noticed one or more signs of a plumbing leak, you should not hesitate to contact a professional plumber. Hidden leaks cause water damage to your home, which can be expensive to repair. Additionally, leaks create the warm, damp environment in which mold thrives, so ignoring the leak can have serious consequences.

What Is Leak Detection?

Leak detection services use techniques like sound amplification, thermal imaging, pressure testing, and pipe camera inspections to locate hidden leaks in hard-to-reach areas like under slab foundations, inside walls, or above finished ceilings. At Waldrop, most of our leak detection techniques are non-invasive, and because of their accuracy, they also limit the damage to your home during the repair process.

What Is a Slab Leak?

Slab leaks are plumbing leaks that develop in your underground water lines. Often, these leaks are the result of corrosion over a long period of time, but they can also be caused by ground or foundation shifts or poor installation at the time your home was built. Slab leaks can cause a lot of water damage if not promptly spotted and fixed; in some of the most serious cases, slab leaks can weaken the structural integrity of your foundation and lead to an eventual foundation shift or collapse.

Leak Detection FAQ

What causes slab leaks?

Leaks in concrete slabs can occur as soil freezes and thaws, settles, or erodes away, causing the slab to move and pipes to rub against the abrasive concrete. The pipes themselves can also fail due to age, defective materials, or improper installation.

How much will leak repairs cost?

The repair costs will depend on the extent of the problem and its location. If the leak is contained to a small area in a wall, the repairs may be minimal and the costs may be limited. For leaks in a concrete slab, the repairs may be extensive, requiring the removal of concrete, pipe repairs, and concrete patches. Talk to our team at Waldrop for an accurate estimate.

How can I prevent leaks?

If you have an older home that has pipes made from galvanized steel, cast iron, thin-walled copper, polybutylene, or other materials that are known to have problems, it may be wise to repipe your home. Also, keep your pipes in good condition and prevent future problems with periodic maintenance and inspections.
