First time I went to commiefornia about 18 years ago I stayed at a bosses house up on one of the hills in Yorba Linda for about a week. Arnold lived up on the top and got pissed when they wouldn't let him build a heli-pad. Anyway bosses main bathroom's ceramic tile floor right beside the toilet was always warm. I told him he had a water leak in his slab from the hot water tank. He looked at me like I was crazy and blew it off, saying it has been that way since they bought the house. Fast forward a few months and the gas company came knocking because of his extreme gas usage and told him he had a problem. Even with the pool and hot tub he was using 10 times what his neighbors were and they had pools too. He then calls a plumber who found the leak in the master bathroom floor. Had to jackhammer up his floor and fix it. Probably a two million+ dollar house now and IDK if the floor has been retiled yet! He was a titewad but evidently extreme gas and water bills were OK.
Has your water and/or gas bill increased appreciably in the last few months? Hope it's not this but sure sounds like it could be.I think you may have nailed this one. Got home today from my first day of truly working out in a year and a half and the wife came out and said she thinks she knows the issue. Apparently our son was standing on the other side of the kitchen bar counter area on the wood floor and he said the floor is really warm. I go over there and sure enough the floor is much warmer than the rest of the area around it. It's also the same area of the floor that makes sense for the hotwater line to run from the hot water heater to the kitchen sink. I fell absolutely terrible about this if this is in fact the issues with a leaking hotwater line under the slab. Luckily the new 5 day owner of the home has insurance and we also paid for a home warranty. At least there's that coverage. but what a PITA.
Yes Sir. We are the only house on our block that i know of out of about 14 homes that hasn't had any water or pumbing issues. These homes were built in 1958 so all have has some major problems since we have been here for 18 years. Feeling very luck but also very bad for the new owners. Almost guilty to a degree. I did meet the new owner and he is super cool, very unique and exceptionally smart with a what sounds like an amazing career.You got some really lucky timing and they got some really crappy timing!
