Causes of Water Leaks
There are a bunch of reasons for water leaks emerging at the most unsuitable places like under the tile floor in the kitchen, for instance. Sometimes it is really hard to locate them without the assistance of a trained plumbing specialist.
Below is the list of potential reasons that might cause a leak:
- Shifting or failing old pipes
It is a natural process that things get old over time. The pipes are no exception. As the pipes at your home age, they will begin to gradually fail and even develop water leaks. If you have noticed any kind of leak, do not postpone resolving the issue and consult our technicians who can help you pinpoint the leak, fix the problem and provide an expert repiping services if needed.
- Clogged drains or toilets
Clogs in your drains or toilets are another reason why water leaks occur in the pipes. If you haven’t thought about what you flush down your drains, it is time to do just that. Grease, hair, certain foods, hygienic products should never be flushed down your toilet because they will eventually cause a blockage to form, increasing the pressure inside the pipe and later producing leaks. This is a tricky situation – you will never know when the burst pipe emergency might strike.
- Tree roots
Tree roots intrude and compromise your pipes in their never-ending search for water. They are almost impossible to identify without professional help. In this case video line inspection or hydro jetting will become a helpful tool in determining a leak.
How do you know that you have a leaking pipe?
Many of the homeowners often ask how they can know about a leaking pipe at their home if there is no evident sign of the leak. If your plumbing system consists of old galvanized pipes, you should remember to regularly check your pipes and always contact a professional in case of any concerns. Water leaks are commonly suspected by the homeowners when there is low water pressure in their pipes or when they notice significant water damage. Unfortunately, the issue might be identified too late and the leaking water from the pipes could have already damaged the house. Neither do homeowners generally go under the house, nor have special tools to monitor and detect leaks and plumbing problems with their old galvanized piping systems. Hire a professional to come check things out on a regular basis. The most responsible of us visit doctors consistently to make sure that we solve the small health problems before they grow into something bigger. The analogy can be used in case of our plumbing system as well.
Hidden water leaks are more than just a pain. If left untreated, they can lead to serious water damage and cause potentially dangerous mold growth.
