Water leaks may seem like a common occurrence with many homeowners familiar with the irritation of a dripping tap. However, not all leaks are as simple as the obvious dripping faucet. Sometimes water leaks are under slab or in other hidden areas that if left untreated, can threaten the foundation of your home.
Slab leaks are water leaks that occur within the slab foundation of a building or home and can lead to a variety of problems, such as shifting foundations, mold or mildew growth, water damage, increased water bills, and more.

Not sure you have a gas leak? Common signs include:
Soil over long periods of time can corrode galvanized pipes, old valves with broken seals, and wore out gas connectors are just a few reasons gas leaks occur.
If the gas company detects a leak, they normally shut down the gas system to the property by red tagging the meter and placing a lock it, recommending contacting a licensed plumber for repairs.
At Quick-Flo Plumbing & Rooter, for the comfort of the homeowner, we normally call the gas company an hour prior to the repair being completed, as they are the only ones that can remove the lock and turn the gas back on to your home.

Our leak detection specialists at Quick Plumbing & Rooter are thoroughly trained professionals capable of identifying a leak, and providing permanent solutions preventing them from occurring in the future.
Causes of sewer leaks:
Old Age – Like most man-made materials, sewer line damage can occur because the pipes are old. Overuse and harsh conditions corrode the metal, leaving pipes vulnerable to breaks and leaks.
Obstructions – Be mindful of what you put down your drains. Objects such as paper products, excessive food, and grease can block your pipes, causing backups.
Tree Roots – Because sewer lines are a source of water, if you have trees on your property, branches can grow towards the pipe, causing leaks, or other sewer line failures.
