What If I Suspect a Leak in my Slab?
No Problem! CrackerJack Plumbing Pros is equipped with ultrasonic and electronic leak detection devices and can find and repair slab leaks as well. Of course, slab leaks can be hard to find, and may require cutting up the concrete slab. Once on site, your CrackerJack Plumbing Pro will assess the leak, and will compose several options to repair the leak by either capping it off, running a new line elsewhere, or by cutting the concrete and repairing the existing line. Our last resort is to cut up the slab.
I Have a Wet Spot or Puddle on The Ground in Front of my Home, Should I Call a Plumber?
A wet ground can indicate a few problems. If your ground is mostly clay and we’ve had a lot of rain, it could just be standing water. If the puddle persists or gets larger, especially if we have not had rain, you could have a main line pipe burst that needs to be repaired by a licensed plumbing firm like CrackerJack Plumbing Pros. Of course, if the water smells or the yard smells, and you are have a septic system, you may have drain field problems that need to be assessed or an overflowing septic tank. Whatever the reason, calling us will give you peace of mind. Our team can quickly identify the cause and provide you with solutions to repair.
There is Water Leaking From My Ceiling, Where is it Coming From?
Water leaking from your ceiling can come from several sources. Roof leaks can cause water damage to become visible on your ceiling sometimes days after a rain. Some attics are equipped with HVAC equipment and AC coils which produce water. When an AC coil freezes or when a drain line plugs up it can leak water into the attic and cause water damage in the ceiling. Lastly, plumbing piping may run through your ceiling or through floor joists if the house is 2 stories. Typically we see leaking from copper piping or galvanized piping, and more rarely CPVC and PEX. If you have a metal pipe that is leaking, it could be due to water quality or pressure issues. Our plumbers will not only assess the leak but will also assess the piping to ensure we solve the problem at it’s root cause and prevent any future leaks as well.
