Leaks in the home’s water system are never fun. Often, homeowners will have a slow leak that goes undetected. Not only can they lead to costly plumbing repairs, they can also lead to water and structural damage. It is important to be aware of common signs you may have a leak. If you do suspect a leak, call the water line repair specialists at John Stevenson Plumbing, Heating & Air. Our team is trained in all the complexities of a home’s water system and equipped to find the source of the leak and perform only the highest quality repairs or new water line installation.

Signs You May Need A Main Water Line Repair Specialist

Some of the most common signs of a water leak are not actually active signs of  water. Hard water build up around faucets, water shut off valves, or water line connections, are indications there may be a slow leak, or a past leak. 

One of the leading causes of water line system leaks is high water pressure. If the home does not have a pressure reducing valve, or water pressure regulator, it could lead to leaks. City water service supplies water, but often it is much higher than the recommended pressure. Excessive water pressure can weaken seals in faucets and toilets, as well as cause friction in underground water lines leading to burst pipes and flood damage. This could lead to the need for a water line replacement.

In San Diego, slab leaks are very common, especially in older homes. Age and water pressure can cause underground pipes to develop pinhole leaks that can go unnoticed until it is a bigger issue. 

Our team is able to electronically locate the leak and provide recommendations for direct water service repair or new water line replacement. Often, a reroute of the leaking line can also solve the problem. 

Another sure sign of a leak in the home’s plumbing is discoloration on ceilings from upper to lower pipe leaks. This can happen from an upstairs shower, and homeowners may never know. The pipes inside of the walls can leak for long periods, and only when it becomes larger will signs of water appear. Most times, a main water line repair can be made to fix the leak. However, our team will ensure the cause of leaking is addressed to prevent future leaks. 

Our team recommends an annual plumbing inspection that will check the water pressure and all visible plumbing systems to ensure homeowners are leak free. While there is little maintenance that can be performed to prevent water leaks, routine inspection can help to identify potential issues before they become larger problems.

If you are experiencing active leaks or suspect a leak, call our expert team for the highest quality water line installation, repair and diagnosis. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How Often You Should Get A Water Line Service Done?
We recommend an annual plumbing inspection to identify potential issues with the home’s water line system. While there is no water line servicing schedule, if you notice active drips, a high water bill, or even fluctuating hot water, it may be time for a professional plumber.
What Are The Common Signs Of A Slab Leak?

Slab leaks are very common in many areas of San Diego. Hard water, high water pressure, and age can all contribute to pipes becoming worn and developing small leaks. One of the most common signs of a leak under the foundation is a high water bill. Warm or damp spots on floors, sounds of water running when no taps are in use, and pooling water outside of the home can also indicate a leak underground.

Is A Broken Water Pipe Typically Covered By Insurance?

Every homeowner’s insurance policy is different. Some insurance coverage will cover a portion of the water line repair; however, it is best to reference individual policies prior to filing a claim. Many homeowner’s insurance will cover the cost of accessing and locating the leak, as well as replacing flooring or walls once the leak is repaired. Usually the actual repair is not covered, and often, they will not cover re-pipes or water line installation. Our plumbers are able to provide detailed estimates and options so homeowners can make the best decision regarding filing an insurance claim. It is important to contact your preferred plumber first. Insurance companies will want to send out their own company, and usually they are not the best, but the cheapest.

What’s Potentially Causing Main Water Line Repair Issues?

Age and water pressure are the two most common causes of water line leaks. As pipes age and are exposed to high water pressure, they can develop small pinhole leaks. These can develop behind walls and showers, in ceilings, and underneath the slab foundation. Thermal expansion, when excessive pressure caused from water heaters, happens, this also leads to leaks in fixtures and through the pressurized water system. Homeowners should be aware of the water pressure coming into their home and always be on the lookout for signs of a leak. When our team performs an annual plumbing inspection, they will check all potential problems including water pressure to help homeowners remain leak free.
