An example of one type of job Staggs Plumbing performs in Rockwall every day:
The soil in and around Rockwall TX has a high clay content; water in the ground is absorbed, and it expands slightly. If you have a leaky sprinkler system, pools of water sitting around the foundation or poor drainage, there’s a good chance the soil around your home will expand. In periods of dry spells or droughts, water leaves the soil, allowing the soil to shrink.
If your home has a concrete floor, then it’s built on a “slab”. The constant expansion and shrinking over the years shifts the water pipes coming into and from your house. Sometimes enough stress or pressure can break a pipe, allowing water to seep out and find its way up through minute cracks in the slab into your house. This is known as a slab leak.

Preventing Slab Leaks
As a resident of Rockwall, you’ve probably heard that it’s not if you’ll have a problem with your home’s foundation, it’s a matter if when it will happen.
There are a couple of things you can do to help slow down the expansion & contraction of the soil under your slab.
Water Your Foundation
Foundation experts will advise you to “water your foundation” which means making sure it doesn’t dry out too much. If you have sprinklers, are they adjusted so that the soil near the house will benefit from the water. You can also purchase soaker hoses rather cheaply that provide a nice constant drip of water for a few hours at a time. There are several home improvement stores near the Rockwall area such as Lowe’s or Home Depot that carry soaker hoses.
In the hot and dry Texas summers, it’s always a good idea to lay some soaker hoses around the foundation to help the soil maintain adequate moisture to help prevent it from drying out and shrinking. They are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at your local hardware store. By keeping the soil around your home slightly moist, it will help avoid too much movement in your home’s foundation.
Keep Excess Water away from the Foundation
Rockwall has seen its fair share of extreme weather. 2015 saw a record rainfall for the year. It is important to make sure you have adequate drainage to take the rainfall away from your house. Use rain gutters or flexible downspout extensions to direct rainfall away from the house and spread over the yard. Your local home improvement store usually carries a large selection of gutters and related accessories if you want to go the DIY route rather than call in a professional gutter service.
