Unhealthy Water

Corroded pipes can cause water to become dirty, foul-smelling and unfit to use or consume. It's what happens when rust builds up inside galvanized water pipes. The rust restricts the flow of water and causes a build-up of gunk and slime throughout the system.

Slab Leaks

Once the ground shifts from environmental changes, or faulty construction on your foundation, your home is susceptible to slab leaks. Also, since there is not much cold weather in this area, water lines are often not insulated, so lines may be touching and wear over time from running against one another.

Fixing Slab Leaks

1.) Locating the Leak - Air is pumped through a line where the technician listens for the sound of an air bubble. This is something they are trained to recognize and have perfected over time.
2.) Repairing the Leak - This may result in rerouting the water line overhead if in mobile home, or having to go through the foundation. All options depend on where the leak is located.
