No matter where your home is, it is going to have plumbing problems at some point or another. However, every city is going to have unique problems due to differences in terrain and municipal water regulations. Here are some of the most common plumbing problems we come across in San Antonio:
Slab leaks occur when the pipes underneath your home’s foundation break or start leaking, causing significant damage to your home. Slab leaks are common in San Antonio due to the high number of homes built on concrete foundations and the significant amount of older homes in the area. Slab leaks are difficult to detect, but if you begin noticing wet carpet or warped floors, higher water bills and lower water pressure, you may want to call us to schedule a slab leak detection appointment.
Leaking pipes are a common problem in any metropolitan city, but in San Antonio, they are often caused high water pressure. They don’t call this area the Hill Country for nothing. Because of the hills, the city of San Antonio has to pump water at a higher pressure so that it is able to reach structures at the tops of hills or at the top of high rises and other tall buildings. This high pressure can cause wear and tear on your pipes. Other causes include foundation shifts, corrosions (typically in older homes) and tree roots wrapping around pipes.
San Antonio is notorious for its hard water. Hard water forms when it goes through limestone and other mineral deposits. San Antonio’s large limestone deposits mean we’re working with some pretty hard water. While hard water isn’t bad for your health, it will stain your bathroom and kitchen surfaces with unsightly, difficult-to-remove white deposits. It can also dry your skin and cause build up in your hair. If you’re tired of dealing with all the problems that come with hard water, we offer expert water softener system installation services.
