Slab Leak Repair in Temple, TX

FIX IT! Services Can Fix Your Slab Leaks in Temple, TX

Water leaks in your slab can be caused by a leaking sewer or water line underneath your slab and can cause foundation issues if they’re not fixed quickly. Of any water leak, slab leaks have the potential of costing you thousands of dollars in repairs because they can lead to your foundation cracking and shifting. When that happens, you’ll see cracks in your walls, ceilings and floors, and if the water continues to leak, it can create a humid environment inside, where mold can grow, making you sick with asthma and allergies.

Some of the signs of slab leaks include water on the ground around your home, damp carpets and floors inside your home, and worst of all, puddles whose source you can’t identify on floors and carpets.

If you can’t track the origin of the leak, just say “FIX IT!” and FIX IT! Services can come out 24/7 and do an inspection to find the source and repair it fast.

What Is a Slab Leak?

Most homes have slab foundation plumbing running underground, supplying water to the home and channeling sewage and drainage away from the home via a sewer line. All of the piping runs through the foundation and is prone to bursts, corrosion and breaks due to normal wear and tear, ground settling or tree roots growing into the pipes.

That is why we recommend regular sewer line maintenance and inspections for homes more than 20 years old. Plumbing checks can reveal a corroded or leaky pipe, which can become a massive issue if left alone.

 Slab leaks can often go unnoticed unless you see a pool of water. But before seeing visible clues thinking that you need slab leak repair in Temple, TX, there are signs that will tell you if you are dealing with a slab leak.

How to Detect Slab Leaks in Your Home in Austin, TX

1) Floor puddles

 You may notice a persistent puddle of water in a certain area of your home that keeps coming back after being dried repeatedly. This is a sign that there may be a leak underneath the area or somewhere close to it. When you experience wet spots on your floor, just say “FIX IT!” and our slab leak specialists will bring our foundation leak detection equipment to spot the exact location of the leak.

2) Warm, damp areas on your floor

Water can warm up a concrete floor. If areas away from the damp area feel cooler than the damp area, you may have a slab leak.

3) Weakened water pressure

Since water is running out and into the yard, you’re likely going to be seeing weaker water pressure. Water doesn’t expel from faucets with as much force as it used to, and showers may slow to a trickle. If you see these signs, call the slab leak solutions experts at FIX IT! to have the area assessed.

4) Surging water bills

If your water bill suddenly rises and it shows that you’re mysteriously using 25%-100% more water, you could have leaks in your pipes. Many water districts provide mobile apps that allow you to monitor your water consumption and will alert you when usage spikes. See if your district offers this type of monitoring technology and then use it.

5) Odd sounds

Leaking water behind walls can make a gushing or hissing sound. It’s even more obvious when you see water seeping or gushing onto the floor. It could be a broken pipe behind a wall or in a ceiling, which could be better than having a slab leak.

6) Cracked floors

When the situation starts causing cracked floors, the broken water pipes have already eroded the soil underneath your foundation, causing it to sag. The eroding soil there forms a gap where the pipe is leaking water, weakening that area of the foundation. Cracked floors, walls, ceilings and window frames are indications that the home is shifting. Call the Texas plumbing slab leak repair and detection experts at FIX IT! Services to start the repair process immediately.

Westin went above a beyond
Came out, fixed my issues, I asked them to identify any other issues. He suggested a couple, gave me a quote and got it done all in a few hours. They'll be my go to for my home and anyone that asks. Easy, honest, simple and informative. He fixed the relief valve so if it blows it won't ruin my home, fixed the expansion tank leak and replaced problematic shark it connectors at the water heater. All in I think 4 hours or less depending on if you count the time he took to grab parts. All around very happy. $585 was the cost. I called around for like work and the price for just fixing my expansion tank came close to the above cost from competitors in the area. Solid solid people here.

TLDR - Everyone is awesome - Heather, Kevin, Joey - A+++ Thanks so much!! While it was such a headache to deal with my warranty company and try to get them to honor their contract, the silver lining is that's how I learned of Fix It Services and ended up using them to replace my hot water heater without using the warranty after all (grr). I have nothing but great things to say about everyone we've dealt with. The first technician who came out to diagnose the issue, Westin, was polite and quick to do what needed done and refer back to the warranty company. We ended up having some other technicians come out to give us a quote on the repair outside of warranty, and that was Kevin and Joey. They were fantastic. They took their time to answer our questions not only about the water heater but also about some water pressure concerns we had, and even talked about our water softener. They were very friendly, funny, and knowledgable. They did not mind spending time talking to us and swapping stories (and no, not because they were being paid for every minute they stayed either... lol). While we still tried to sort out our warranty issues over the course of a few days, Heather in the office continued to be such a delight to work with. She understood all of our frustrations (as did Kevin & Joey), worked really hard to be an advocate for us with the warranty company and dealt with a lot of back and forth phone calls and questions of both my husband and I while also dealing with the warranty company. Every single time we spoke to her she was polite and friendly, truly sounded eager to help and was not once bothered with us when we kept having to take some more time to decide how we wanted to move forward. - She did everything she could to swap schedules around and keep the technicians available for us as soon as possible, as we had already been without hot water for over a week. Kevin & Joey came back out to do the job, after waiting around on us for awhile to make the decision this morning. They were just as friendly as before, and were super efficient and professional in getting the install done correctly and quickly. They answered some more questions, provided some knowledge on flushing our system, tested our water hardness for us, and provided an estimate for a water softener. Every step of the process working with this company was a breeze and that's not easy to say about a lot of companies and contractors that are "randomly" assigned by warranty companies.

I broke off a water pipe 14inches inside the outer wall of our home. They came in and fixed the problem within two hours of the call. Kevin and Joey were professional and quick. The kind of people that measure twice and cut once. Exactly who you want to have work on your home. Ask for those guys.

Mother in law was charged 180.00 dollars to repair a leaky bathroom faucet. The faucet actually leaks more now. She has tried to contact the person who did the repair to get an invoice but hasnt had any luck. Sounds like the guy saw his chance to take advantage of an elderly person and did so. I would definitely think twice before using this company, nothing worse than someone that takes advantage of the elderly.

I had a leaky fitting for the hose outside of my house - from previous experience with other fittings on my house, I knew the fittings on this house were a bit tricky. Deonte and Tabitha arrived quickly, correctly diagnosed the issue, and had the problem resolved quickly, especially given the trickiness of the way my house was originally plumbed. Plus, they were very friendly and played with my dog whenever he wandered by.

A big shout out to Zac and Diante, who quickly came to my home, quite a distance away, to repair my hot water heater. They were professional, kind, helpful, and fun. I had several issues which they took care of; even traveling twice during the visit to obtain needed parts. Diante also walked me through how to easily flush my water heater for yearly maintenance. Great service!!
