Not all leaks fall into the same category, though.

There is one particular type of leak that we want to focus on today, and that is the slab leak. What’s so special about the slab leak? Why has it earned its very own dedicated blog post? The answer is as simple as it is alarming—because slab leaks are a very major concern. Due to their location, a slab leak in Torrance, CA, is very difficult to recognize, detect, and service.

When Good Pipes Go Bad

Monday, March 18th, 2019

sunny-plumberWhen you think of system failures, you may think of things like motors or electrical controls that run into operational issues. That’s reasonable. Generally speaking, the more complex a system, the more there is to go wrong. That being said, there is no rule stating that simple systems and the components that they comprise cannot run into trouble, too. We certainly don’t mean to suggest that your plumbing system is simple, of course, but we will admit that individual pipes are not terribly complex.

It is always a good idea to know some common signs of trouble to be aware of that will help you to catch problems with your pipes early on.
