Santa Fe Leak Repair Services
Repairing Leaks in Pipes & Under Slabs
Leaks can be detrimental to the structure of your home or
plumbing system if left unattended. Certain types of leaks are fairly obvious, such as a
water heater leak or a
dripping faucet. 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.
Below, we outline common signs to look for to help you catch these types
sooner. If you have noticed any signs of a leak, Paul's Plumbing & Heating, Inc. can
help with our leak repair services. We also offer
commercial plumbing services to meet your business needs.

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 repair experts can help you protect your home by ensuring you
know the signs to look for, so you can call us for leak repair at the
first indication of a leak.
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 Types of Water Leaks
Leaking Faucet: 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.
Leaking Shower: A leaking shower head is often the result of corroded, clogged, or broken
inner parts. Drains can also cause leaking issues in a shower.
Leaking Toilet: 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.
