Santa Fe Leak Detection & Repair Services
Finding and Repairing Leaks in Pipes & Under Slab
Certain types of leaks are fairly obvious, such as a water heater leak or a dripping faucet. However, certain leaks in your home's plumbing system may not be obvious to the eye. These hidden leaks can cause serious damage if they go undetected. Because the pipes that run behind walls or underneath your foundation are out of sight, you may not be aware that they are causing damage for quite some time. If you have noticed any signs of a leak or suspect one, Paul's Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can help.

Signs That You May Have a Leak
A dripping sound may seem like the most obvious sign of a leak, but there are other signs, as well. Plumbing systems are quite complex with many different parts and components, many of which are hidden away. Our Santa Fe leak detection experts can help you protect your home by ensuring you know the signs to look for.
A few signs that you may have a plumbing leak include:
- Water puddles or rust
- Mold growth or smells
- Constant dripping
- Higher than usual water bill
- Squeaky faucets
The most common signs that you have a slab leak include:
- Small cracks in your walls or floors
- Sound of water running when water is off
- Hot spots under your carpet or floors
- Mold or mildew growing under carpet or floors
Common Water Leaks in the Home
- Leaking Faucet
- Leaking Shower
- Leaking Toilet
- Leaking Hot Water Heater
- Leaking Sink Pipes
- Leaking Water Pipes
You may have a problem with the O ring, a corroded valve seat, or an old washer. Replacing any or all of these will generally fix the problem.
A leaking shower head is often the result of corroded, clogged, or broken inner parts. Drains can also cause leaking issues in a shower.
Water pooling around the base of the toilet is unsanitary if it is escaping during a flush. The toilet may need to be bolted tighter to the floor or it may need to have its wax ring replaced.
Leaking Hot Water Heater
Water leaking from the top of your water heater indicates a potential problem with the inlet valve, the TPR valve, or the pipe fittings. Water leaking at the base could be from the drain valve, or it is a problem with the tank itself.
Leaking Sink Pipes
This can occur when the valve stem needs to be tightened or replaced on the supply pipes. If the issue is with the drain pipes, there could be blockage to clear, loose compression nuts to tighten, or corrosion.
Leaking Water Pipes
Broken water pipes in the home will begin causing damage to the home immediately. It is best to turn off the water supply and to have a plumber address the problem as soon as possible.
