Orlando Plumbing Question: What’s That Hissing Sound Coming From Inside My Walls?

Whats that hissing sound coming from my walls? We get that question a lot and many of or Orlando customers have older homes and the plumbing in these homes consist of copper piping. Most of the time a leak on the copper pipe will sound like water running or a hissing sound coming from the wall. If you hear this sound and don’t see water chances are you have a slab leak.

A slab leak is a leak on the water piping located under the slab. These leaks must be located and the floor must be chipped up to make the repair. If you hear the hissing sound and have water the leak could be in the wall but there is still a chance that the leak is in the slab. The Orlando plumber would have to cut open the wall to see if there is a leak in the wall or slab. If you hear that hissing sound and it turns out to be in the slab your best choice is to repipe your home.

The cost and damage to your home from repairing a slab leak is almost as much as as a repipe but you are only repairing a small section which you can have another leak in a different part of the plumbing system anytime after that but if you repipe your home you’re replacing all of the pipe in your home with new and will have years of worry free use.
