TRUSTED PLUMBING AND REMODELING
SERVice In NAPA, CA SINCE 1992
Plumbing leaks are common within the average home, especially around fixtures in your bathroom or kitchen. Routinely checking for leaks around your most used appliances, such as your toilet, sink, or shower/bathtub, can help prevent severe damage from happening to your home. If you find that a leak has caused significant problems to your house, call us at All-Star Plumbing.
Below are some of the most common plumbing leaks and how to detect and resolve them.
Slab Leak Detection & Repair
Some homes are built on a concrete slab, meaning that the home’s plumbing is within that. A slab leak occurs when the pipes burst or have damage to them. Detecting leaks in these types of foundations is a lot harder than other types, but there are a few signs that will let you know that you have a slab leak:
- Sounds of water running under the floor, but all the appliances are off
- Warm or warped spots on the floor
- Decreased water pressure
- Moisture under the floor
- Odd smells coming from sewage
- High water bill
Since these leaks are harder to detect, make sure to contact a plumber immediately if you begin to notice any of these signs. By rerouting your pipelines with the correct professional equipment, a slab leak can be corrected in no time.

Installing a water leak detection system in your home can make a world of difference when it comes to protecting your home from damage. Many systems can be linked directly to your phone so that you can stay aware of your pipes at all times. We can install high-quality leak detection systems and perform checks on your pipelines to ensure your home is safe from water leaks.
Gas Leak Detection & Repair
Gas leaks are one of the most dangerous things that can happen to your home. If a leak is present, your home will begin to smell like rotten eggs. It will be noticeable immediately once a leak starts; if you smell this, you should immediately get out of the house and call your gas company and 911. Any exposure to the gas can cause long-term health problems if you begin to have chest pain, flu-like symptoms, dizziness, or trouble breathing. Other signs could be hissing sounds or wilting plants.
Often, gas leaks are caused by misfitted, damaged, or corroded pipes. Once a leak is detected, shutting off the gas will be the first step, but you will need to repair your lines after the emergency is resolved. We can restore your pipes to working condition to ensure your family’s safety.
Shower Pan Leak Detection & Installation
A shower pan is the entire bottom floor of the shower and houses the drain. The pan is sloped so the water can easily flow into the drain. Because it is one of the most used parts in your bathroom, it is susceptible to damage. This is the most common cause of shower pan leaks. Other causes of leaks can include poor installation, prolonged wear (especially to plastic pans), and deflection.
If there is a problem with your shower pan, it will cause significant damage to your bathroom floor. To check for leaks, you can pour a bucket of water into your pan, cover the drain, and monitor the water levels. If it decreases, there is a problem with your shower pan. Another way to detect problems is looking for mold or searching underneath your shower pan for leaks or mildew. Calling in a plumber is always a good idea for these leaks, as they can often be worse than they appear. You might also have to repair grout, add masonry sealer, or replace the liner on your pan. We can help with any of these problems, as well as installing a completely new shower pan.
