Signs You Need Water Pipe Repair or Replacement

Sometimes a water leak is relatively easy to detect. Other times, a leak can go unnoticed for long enough to cause significant damage to your home. By looking out for the following signs, you can help stop water pipe leaks as soon as they begin. Check for the following indications of leaks and call our team right away, so we can provide you with water pipe repair:

  • Water accumulating outside: When a pipe leaks and there is nowhere for the leaking water to go, it can bubble up in the street, cracks in your driveway, or saturate areas of your yard. When unaddressed, these wet areas can cause sinkholes and prove hazardous for animals and children.
  • Puddles or wet spots inside: Pay close attention to the areas around sinks, toilets, and tubs in your home. Puddles on the floor, discolored areas, or even wet spots on the ceiling can be indicative of a water pipe leak. This includes damp drywall and wet rings on the ceiling.
  • Foundational cracks: If you have noticed cracks in the foundation of your home, a leaking pipe may be the culprit behind the structural damage. Contact our team before the water further weakens your home and causes more severe problems.
  • Low water pressure and high water bills: When you receive an unexpectedly high water bill, the excess expense may be due to a leak. It is generally a good idea to check for other signs of plumbing damage before assuming a leak is the cause. Low water pressure can also indicate a leak or damage in your pipes.
  • Unusual sounds or odor: Do you hear whistling in the pipes, bubbling in the sink, or dripping and banging noises coming from your piping? These may indicate leaks or broken pipes. The odor of sewage and dirty water can also waft through your home when you have a water leak.

Big Blue Plumbing’s Expert Solutions

In accordance with our comprehensive plumbing services, we offer water pipe repair regardless of the age or material of your piping. Many historic homes here in the East Bay Area were built prior to 1965. This may benefit them in beauty, but it was also before copper piping became the industry standard. A lot of these homes still have their original galvanized iron piping. Over time, these pipes corrode, leak, and break. We offer copper or PEX piping solutions. We can repair leaks, replace sections of your water pipes, or complete a total repiping to help prevent future leaks from springing up in your home. We promise to fix the source of the problem, whatever it may be. We’ll never recommend unnecessary services. Our goal is to solve your water pipe issues as completely and cost-effectively as possible.

When I called in for service for a clogged drain I spoke to Ebony, who right off the bat was helpful and informative on what I could expect from them during their visit.

We were serviced by RJ Mattson. Who was prompt and understanding of our loud and obnoxious pit bull which is a plus because some people are afraid of loud barks…

He quickly realized our problem was not just a clogged drain but that we potentially had a much bigger problem and proceeded to explain in detail what issue we were dealing with. He even offered to explain the issue with our landlord which was very helpful. After all he is the expert, he could explain it much better than me.

The visit was relatively short being we weren’t prepared to handle the repair cost immediately.
But with the visit being short RJ was kind enough to offer to take the $67 dollars they charge for a diagnostic and put it towards the estimate total. We will be using BBP without hesitation!

We are in the process of selling our home and the city of Oakland requires a lateral sewer inspection. Long story short….we needed to replace the hook-up from the house, install required regulatory items, and replace the sewer pipe to the street.
Nick, RJ, and Cesar “teaspoon” Rivera were all very helpful in explaining the process and requirements.

All of this work included extensive digging in the front yard and street. Cesar was really helpful during the pipe replacement. He checked on the contractors to ensure the work was being done correctly and he even replanted a plant that had to be dug up. He listened to me and and showed empathy when I discovered my prize hydrangea would not be able to replanted due to the meters they had to install. He made sure everything was back in order.

There was quite a lot of dirt and debris left from the project. Crispin Orozco made sure it was cleaned up and back in the condition it was before all the work started. Crispin even replaced some of the garden mulch that had been lost in the digging process and evened out the wood chips around the plants.

Big Blue is our go-to Plumbing company. They do great work and all of the people I have met have been very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.

I can’t say enough good things about this company. They are professional, friendly, efficient, and hard working. We have a pretty serious plumbing situation that will require more work, but on day one the team came out and worked their you-know-whats off for about 8 hours. They explained everything to us clearly and gave us multiple options on how to proceed before starting anything. I have never had such a positive experience with any plumbing company before, and I would definitely recommend Big Blue to anyone who needs a plumber. Totally top notch.

the best plumbing and heating company bar none. for nearly a month, we experienced intermittent hot water outages. we called two other plumbing companies who did nothing but waste our money. one of them, Leapfrog, after gladly charging us a handsome sum simply told us that they didn’t know what was wrong and told us to call the boiler company directly. ridiculous. Paul and Zach, unlike other companies, were professional and knowledgeable from the start. they took the time and effort to understand our house’s heating and water systems. after patiently troubleshooting everything, they found the root cause. we now have hot water and consistent heating throughout our house thanks to their work. these guys are busy and in high demand for a reason – they’re simply the best and worth every single penny. don’t waste your time with others who claim to be experts at what they do. Big Blue Plumbing are true masters of their craft. we’ll be lifetime customers and proud advocates for this great business.

Big Blue really helped us out. I reached out with a very unconventional request and they were able to fulfill it in a prompt and kindly fashion. Very compassionate despite the circumstances. I had called every plumber in town and Zack’s response really saved the day. I can’t recommend enough. Thanks so much Big Blue!

I am an architect in Berkeley and know value in the trades when I see it and experience it. Big Blue replaced our broken sewer lateral and never complained when the job was harder (pipes deeper) than they anticipated. Great at details and communication. 5 star plus

The people they send are always top notch. Nick is who you want to request if you can get him. I am a member of the Big Blue program which gives you priority service and cost discounts. You pay a few bucks a month to be in the program. With an older house like ours it is worth it. You need those discounts too because these guys tend to be a bit more pricey than other plumbers I have priced out. But as the saying goes, “cheap plumbing can get expensive”.

I found Big Blue Plumbing on a Yahoo search. From the start they were great. The office receptionist Briana was very courteous. She was knowledgeable of the different heating systems and set up an appointment for me right away.

Today Zack from Big Blue Plumbing came in to check on our unit. His arrival time was set up for between the hours of 8 – 10am. He called me prior to arriving, he got here at 8:45am., unfortunately our heat/air system is not one they service. However, Zack stayed and checked our unit, troubleshooting the problems we were having. He was able to let us know what he found he took several pictures for us (to further help us as we find someone who works with Hydronic heating systems.

Zack was very professional, explained everything clearly and left us with some help to make our search a lot easier.

Thanks Zack, you were excellent and we really appreciate your help and dedication to your work.
