Leak Detection

Santa Fe Leak Detection Services

New Mexico Soil Shift Can Cause Plumbing Leaks

Plumbing lines buried beneath slabs are vulnerable to shifting soils. If the soil moves too much, plumbing lines can develop leaks. A slow leak beneath a home can cause the soil to shift more, which can make the leak worse. The potential for increasing damage makes early leak detection essential.  Even the smallest of leaks can yield devastating results. A leak the size of a pinhead, for example, can waste 360,000 gallons per year, enough to fill 12,000 bathtubs to overflowing.

In severe cases, the slab and flooring can erupt and flood every room on the ground floor, ruining floor coverings, furniture, water heaters and other appliances. When that happens, foundation repair is only one of several serious problems.  Or a leak beneath the slab can erode the soil and cause the slab to cave in. When the slab fails, the weight of the concrete breaks the plumbing lines beneath, causing a rush of water into the home.

Slab leak detection and foundation leak repair play a vital role in keeping your home’s foundation intact. We would much rather locate a suspected leak than to do major repair work afterward. But how do you know when to call your Santa Fe plumbing repair company, James’ Plumbing & Heating?

You need James’ Plumbing for leak detection if:

  • Your water bill increases for no apparent reason
  • You hear the sound of water running when no taps are open
  • You see foundation cracks
  • Grass of foundation plants grow unevenly
  • There is a visible shift in the soil around your home
  • You have warm spots on slab floors
  • You have discolored floor coverings, such as darkened hardwood
  • You smell bad odors coming from floors or walls

Preventive Plumbing: the Path to Early Leak Detection

Leak detection is a vital part of assuring your home’s plumbing system is functioning well and safely. You stand to save a lot of money on needlessly high water bills and avoid possibly having to spend tens of thousands of dollars on foundation repair and restoring a flooded home. 

James’ Plumbing recommends annual plumbing tune-ups as the best way to spot little problems before they have a chance to become big problems.

Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

For the third time, I am impressed with your employees. They were on-time, quickly understood my problem and almost immediately discovered that my problem wasn't as bad as I thought. They were courteous with me, explained everything as they researched the problem, and went the extra mile by offering assistance with any other plumbing problems I might have. I feel a big relief that they were able to help me. I think they were terrific.

Excellent Quality and Value




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

James' Plumbing replaced our old furnace, added an air conditioner, and installed a new water heater. Over a period of 3 days, James, himself, came by several times per day to get the work started and to check on the progress. He discovered several deficiencies in our old system and corrected them immediately. His employees were all respectful, wore masks, and always left the area clean. I recommend James' Plumbing highly.


Outstanding Service




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

They called me back first thing in the morning after I left a non-emergency message late the night before. They fit me in same-day so that our family would have access to a shower for the long holiday weekend. Isaac also noticed that our hot water setting was way too high and adjusted the hot water heater accordingly for safety. James’ has done an emergency call for us on a weekend in the past. They are the best!


Great response time




Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

We could not regulate our new combination boiler for our hot water and floor heating last fall. James came out and fixed the problem when the original contractor would not because they had already been paid. Recently the middle of May we did not have constant hot water. It took a couple of call backs but James stayed on it to determine the recent influx of moths had clogged the heat exchanger. Great service and certainly appreciate their follow through.

Review of James' Plumbing and Heating

A stranger here in Santa Fe, I chose James Plumbing and Heating because of their web reviews. I was not misled. Their expertise is matched by their determination to get things right and to satisfy the needs of the customer. We were extremely well served by James senior and by the team of Isaac and Thomas.. One other thing that distinguishes this outfit, honesty, from top to bottom. We recommend them highly.
