Any plumbing repair can be an annoyance, but none seem as disastrous as a slab leak. A slab leak – a leak that occurs underneath the concrete slab upon which most residences sit – is difficult to repair and sometimes harder to detect. Luckily, Paws Plumbing is always here to help.
We can find the most cost-effective method to repair a slab leak. Unfortunately, some insurance companies just won't cover a leak, so we are prepared to make it as easy for you as possible. We are prepared to reroute pipes or repipe your home if necessary. Trust the care and expertise that only our plumbers in San Diego can provide!
How Can You Tell You Have a Slab Leak?
A slab leak can be slow and go unnoticed or it can be quite apparent. We want every homeowner to know about some of the most subtle signs of a slab leak.
You may need our San Diego Slab leak repair if you:
- Hear the sound of rushing water underneath your property with no indication of water
- Notice that hot water pressure drops or that there is no hot water
- Notice high water bills or water meter usage rising quickly
- Discover a warm spot on the floor
- See cracks appearing in the walls or baseboard
As soon as you see something unusual, get a professional plumber over right away to check for a serious leak.

Why Does a Slab Leak Occur?
A slab leak may appear for a number of reasons. There may be ground movement somewhere around the area of the pipe, such as nearby construction or even an earthquake that forces the pipe to break open. It may even be that the pipes are not installed very securely in the first place, meaning they were likely to break with time.
Of course, it could just be that the pipes are old. Once piping starts to corrode, there is no turning back. You will need to replace them – hopefully before a slab leak damages the property. Hot water lines are more likely to leak than cold water lines, in part because of the constant temperature changes and the way they react with the soil around the pipes.

You need commercial plumbers in San Diego who will act fast without sacrificing the quality of their work and who can find the solution that creates the least possible disruption to your property and your daily operations.
