How to Tell When You Have a Hidden Water Leak

Some water leak symptoms are obvious and cannot be ignored, while more subtle leaks can be overlooked because homeowners are not aware of the signs that reveal an invisible water leak may be present. If your home or business has any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to give JMS Express Plumbing a call so we can provide an on-site preliminary water leak assessment to determine if an invisible leak is present and if an electronic leak detection or other action is needed.

Some of the common signs of a slab leak include:

  • Dry, musty, mildew odor around walls or carpet
  • Water bill is exceptionally higher than previous months for no apparent reason
  • Discoloration or cracks on ceiling or walls
  • Hot or cold spots on area of the floor
  • Warped hardwood or laminate flooring
  • Sound of running water when no fixtures or appliances are in use

Slab Leak Detection Process

JMS Express Plumbing uses state-of-the art electronic leak detection equipment to trace and identify the pressurized line that is leaking. This is accomplished without damaging floors.

Our slab leak detection process involves the following steps:

  • Performing a preliminary diagnosis to confirm a pressurized leak is present and to determine if an electronic leak detection is required
  • Testing each house fixture with electronic leak detection equipment to detect and pinpoint the leaking water line

Upon locating the pipe leak and based on circumstances, we take one of the two actions indicated below (please note these actions are not included in the fee for leak detection service):

  • When water restoration service is needed or time is required by the homeowner to get insurance authorization to repair the leak:
    • We will cut and cap the faulty pipe to immediately stop leaking water and to mitigate further water leak damage. This typically results in loss of water service to one or more fixtures or toilets that the line supplies water to. It also requires cutting a small hole in drywall/stucco to expose the pipe.
    • If customer desires, we will arrange to have a water restoration company come out to dry up the water and remove any damaged material. We work with a few different water restoration providers that offer free on-site estimates and test for mold. If you have a preferred provider, please provide us with their contact information and we will contact them to explain the situation.
  • When water restoration service is not needed and faulty pipe is accessible:
    • We will repair the faulty pipe the same day and restore full water service. Upon completion of the repair, we perform a series of test to verify the leak is no longer present.

We Will Help with Your Homeowners Insurance Claim

We understand that dealing with a slab water leak can be extremely stressful on homeowners. If your homeowner’s policy provides coverage for slab leaks, we go out of our way to help you through the process of working with your insurance adjuster. We are available to meet directly with them to go over the situation, provide a written report on leak detection findings, and recommend the best repair option, all as a part of our Woodland Hills leak detection service.
