Know where your main water shut off is located
Your main water shut off valve controls all of the water coming into your home. Its a good idea to know where your shut off valve is in your home and how to turn it off. In case of a plumbing emergency like a pipe burst or a broken water pipe turning off your water can help minimize water damage and flooding. Typically your main water shut off may be in one of the following areas in your home:
- Under a bathroom sink
- In garage near the water heater
Major Water Leak Repairs
As a service company TLC sees all different types of water leaks. Most major leak repairs require leak detection services to locate the source of the leak. But pipe breaks can happen unexpectedly as well.
A slab leak happens when a pipe breaks or is leaking below the concrete foundation of your home.
What is a Slab Leak?
A slab leak is a leak in one of the water lines running below the concrete flooring in your home. There are a few signs that may indicate a slab leak. The most obvious would be water or damp spots on your floor. Depending on the size of the leak you may feel warm spots on the floor because most slab leaks are hot water line leaks. Another sign of a water leak like this is if you have significantly higher water bills than normal. You may also receive a letter from the Water Utility department notifying you that you may have a leak in your home because of your increased water usage. TLC is experienced to detect and repair these types of water leaks and we offer 24 hour service. If you encounter a problem like this turn to our team of experts to repair the leak quickly and efficiently.
