The Most Common Reasons for Your Water Leak

Big Blue’s local plumbers have spent decades analyzing the common reasons for water leaks to help our customers avoid them at all costs. Clogged water lines often lead to overflowing or burst pipes, not to mention the corrosion eating away at your pipes over the years. Your plumbing fixtures likely had seals put around their connections when they were installed, but as those seals age, they become worn out and often need to be replaced. Occasionally, a water connector may even become loose, causing a leak around your pipes. Strains placed on your pipes by tree roots, excessive water pressure, or damaged pipe joints also contribute to leaky pipes over time. Having a full-home plumbing inspection at least once a year ensures you’re less at risk, although a water leak can occur anytime, anywhere. Luckily for you, Big Blue Plumbing provides plumbing inspections, maintenance, and emergency plumbing repairs in Alameda, CA and surrounding communities in the East Bay Area.

Signs You Have a Water Leak That’s About to Erupt

Many home and business owners aren’t aware they have a water leak until they see a pool of water on the floor or water already bursting forth from their pipes. However, there are often warning signs that something’s amiss with your residential or commercial plumbing, including:

  • Increased Water Bills – If you’ve noticed skyrocketing water bills without a reasonable explanation, this is a red flag you could have a water leak somewhere. Be sure to check your water meter. When you shut off your running water or water valves, is it still ticking?
  • Mold or Mildew Growth – Have you noticed mold or mildew growth in your shower, on your ceilings, or in your basement? Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments. Better get your pipes inspected for signs of water leaks, as mold is also hazardous to your health!
  • A Musty Odor – Excess moisture from a water leak may also leave behind a telltale musty odor in your bathroom, laundry room, or basement. Be on the lookout for rotting wood or wet spots around your sinks, tubs, or toilets from hidden water leaks. A severely unpleasant odor could also indicate a sewer backup.
  • Water Stains – If you’ve noticed water stains or discolorations on your ceiling, warped drywall, or cracked floors, you more than likely have a water leak somewhere in your plumbing system.
  • Unwelcome Guests – Several species of insects also thrive in a moist environment, such as earwigs, silverfish, and cockroaches. Where there are severe pest infestations present in your home, office, or warehouse, there could also be a potential water leak.
  • Water Sounds – Many people with a water leak can hear the water running around in their pipes long after they’ve shut off their fixtures and water valves.
  • Wet Spots in the Yard – Wet spots on your lawn could indicate an underground water leak that’s harboring bacteria and excess moisture, which could destroy your lawn if ignored.

That Leaky Faucet’s Costing You More Than Your Sanity

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.
