Water leaks are more than just a nuisance. They can cause a lot of damage to your home or business. Just realizing that you have a leak is a challenge; a small leak can go unnoticed for a long time, and the moisture can collect in a place that a resident will not always notice. Also, because water travels to the lowest possible point, it will often collect in a spot far away from the actual leak, making the location of the leak hard to find. Some leaks grow out of control in a hurry and can wreak havoc. Prompt action at the first sign of any plumbing leak is crucial.
Lots of things cause leaks. Corrosion, earthquakes, new construction, or high water pressure are a few such causes. Sewer line leaks can also occur as a result of digging or root growth around the line, corrosion, or foreign matter. Different leaks have different symptoms. A sewer leak will leave a foul smell in your home or yard, while a leak in a water pipe will leave moisture in your floor or carpet. Moisture can cause a wall to become unstable, cause wood to rot, and it can even cause an electrical system to short out or start a fire. Sometimes a leak in a hot water pipe will cause your floor or wall to feel hot. You can also discover a leak if your water meter is running when there are no faucets or appliances turned on.
If moisture goes undetected in a structure for a long time, mold can start to grow. Mold grows in dark, moist places. Although mold can be caught early and removed, certain species of black mold are very aggressive. Once it takes hold of a building, there is nothing that can be done to remove it completely. You cannot live or transact business there, because breathing it is deadly. Once black mold grows to a certain point, the only option is to tear the building down.

Once you approve the work, we will begin our search for your leak. We will check the location of the moisture the surrounding areas. Using sewer and drain cameras, we can inspect your pipes from the inside. We also use other tools to check inside of walls and underneath floors.
Depending what we find, we can present you with several options for fixing the leak. If the pipe is too damaged or corroded, we can replace it. If the pipe is underground, we offer cured-in-place piping (also known as trenchless repiping). It enables us to keep the same pipe by forming a brand-new pipe inside the old one. This is especially useful for dealing with problems in a sewer line, because sewer lines are buried, and therefore very expensive and time-consuming to access.
If the leak is in a pipe that runs inside or below the concrete foundation of the home, then it is called a slab leak. Slab leaks are common in Orange County, but they are not easy to fix for vendors who don’t have experience dealing with them. Orange Coast Plumbing has decades of experience dealing with slab leaks. We use special drain cameras to isolate the leak, and we have a variety of strategies for fixing them. If you don’t want to jackhammer your foundation to get to the leaky pipe, we suggest giving us a call.
