What Causes A Pipe To Leak?
Leaking pipes can be very damaging. Here are a few of the common causes of leaking pipes.
Even just a small imperfection in the pipes construction can weaken it enough so the water flowing through it can wear a hole in it.
Over time, everything breaks down. Given enough time, the pipes in your home will eventually become brittle and crack.
Corrosion and rust
If you have metal pipes, even if they are copper, they can eventually rust or start to corrode. Corrosion occurs more often with copper pipes while rust is more typical for older galvanized steel pipes.
If you have hard water at your home, it can start to deposit minerals inside of your pipes. Eventually these can form a clog or cause you pipes to burst.
The signs of a leaking pipe aren’t always obvious. However, there are some signals that, if you notice them, might indicate that you have a leaking pipe somewhere in your home. Here are just a few of them.
- Puddles of water in strange places
- Increased water bill
- Discoloration in the ceiling or on the floor
- The constant sound of running water
Many times, when you discover a leak in your home the source of it is somewhere else. So even if you do discover a small puddle of water in your basement, the leak might not be immediately visible.
