A leaking hot water heater can be caused by various issues, such as a malfunctioning pressure relief valve, a loose or faulty drain valve, tank corrosion, leaking connections, or problems with the temperature and pressure (T&P) valve. To determine the cause, it is important to turn off the power or gas supply, shut off the water supply, and consult a professional plumber for a thorough inspection and necessary repairs. Taking prompt action is crucial to prevent further damage and potential safety hazards associated with a leaking water heater.

We have a few tips to help you find a water leak in your home:

First, check for visible leaks by inspecting faucets, toilets, outdoor spigots, and the area around water-using appliances and fixtures. Next, examine the toilet by adding a few drops of food coloring to the tank and checking if the color appears in the bowl without flushing. Additionally, turn off all water sources in your home and check the water meter to see if it continues to move, indicating a possible unseen leak. Consider any recent changes in water usage habits, such as visits from guests or filling a swimming pool, as these changes may indicate intentional or potential leaks.

If you are unable to identify the cause of an increased water bill, Call Radiant for a free leak estimate. Promptly fixing any detected leaks is essential to prevent further damage and higher water bills. Our professional plumbers can efficiently address the issue and provide guidance on preventing future leaks.

Detecting a gas leak in your house is crucial for safety. Signs include a distinctive rotten egg smell, a hissing sound near gas lines, dead plants around gas pipes, and physical symptoms like dizziness or nausea. If you notice these signs, take immediate action. Evacuate your home, avoid using electronics or switches, open windows and doors, and contact emergency services or your gas company. For professional assistance in detecting and repairing the gas leak, reach out to Radiant Plumbing. Our experts ensure prompt and safe resolution. Contact us for immediate repair services to safeguard your home and family from potential gas leaks. Your safety is our priority.

Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors are designed specifically to detect carbon monoxide gas, which is colorless and odorless. Unfortunately, they do not pick up on natural gas or propane leaks. Natural gas and propane have distinct smells added for detection, and gas detectors are crafted to sense these smells. Carbon monoxide detectors play a crucial role in monitoring CO levels in your home, providing early warnings about potential dangers.

To detect gas leaks, it’s advisable to install a separate gas detector designed to identify specific gases used in your home, such as methane (natural gas) or propane. This ensures comprehensive coverage for both carbon monoxide and gas leaks. If you’ve recently installed a new gas appliance or gas line and have concerns about a potential leak, evacuate your house immediately and call emergency services. Then, Call Radiant for reliable service and maintenance on all your gas lines and appliances. Your safety is our priority.

Detecting hidden leaks behind walls, in ceilings, or under the floor involves careful observation and awareness of potential signs. Here are some tips:
  • General Leaks:
    • Check for stains, discoloration, or peeling paint on walls and ceilings
    • Listen for the sound of running water
    • Use a moisture meter to identify areas with increased humidity
  • Underground Leaks:
    • Look for a moving water meter
    • Inspect the yard for wet or soggy areas or unusually green patches of grass
  • Walls, Ceilings, or Roofs:
    • Check for stains, bulging, or discoloration on walls and ceilings
    • Inspect the roof for visible damage or missing shingles
    • Use an infrared camera to detect temperature variations
    • Tap walls to listen for changes in sound, indicating water behind the surface
When you’re unsure, it’s important to seek professional help to accurately detect and promptly fix any issues to prevent further damage. For more guidance, take a look at our friendly video on how to find and isolate a leak in your home. If you suspect a hidden leak, don’t hesitate to Call Radiant for expert assistance and reliable leak detection services.

A slab leak refers to a water leak that occurs beneath the concrete slab foundation of a building. These leaks can develop in water supply or sewer lines embedded within or beneath the foundation slab. Slab leaks can lead to significant structural damage and, if not addressed promptly, may result in costly repairs.

Several factors can contribute to the development of slab leaks:

  1. Corrosion: Over time, pipes can corrode, especially in areas with hard water or soil conditions that accelerate corrosion.
  2. Abrasion: Pipes rubbing against the foundation or other pipes due to ground movement or settling can lead to wear and tear, causing leaks.
  3. Poor Installation: Faulty installation or the use of substandard materials may contribute to premature pipe failure.
  4. Pressure Issues: High water pressure can strain pipes, leading to leaks.
  5. Shifting Soil: Changes in soil conditions, such as expansive clay, can exert pressure on pipes, causing them to break or crack.

Signs of a slab leak include:

  1. Water Puddles: Unexplained water pooling around the foundation or in the basement.
  2. Warm Spots: Unexpected warm areas on the floor, indicating a hot water line leak.
  3. Mold or Mildew: Excessive moisture can lead to mold or mildew growth.
  4. Cracks in Walls or Floors: Foundation movement caused by a slab leak can result in visible cracks.
  5. Increased Water Bills: A sudden and unexplained rise in water bills may indicate a hidden leak.

If you suspect a slab leak, it’s essential to consult the plumbing professionals at Radiant Plumbing and Air for a thorough inspection and timely repairs to prevent further damage to your home’s foundation.
