Pipe leaks can be aggravating, inconvenient, and problematic. They frequently signify a more severe plumbing concern that, if left ignored, can cause considerable and costly damage to your home. Below are some of the most typical causes of pipe leaks.
Loose Connections Within Your Pipes
Hoses and pipelines linked to your home’s appliances might become loose, disconnected, or damaged over time. As a result, leaks are possible. Water seeping from the hose or pipe attached to your appliance and excessive wetness and puddles accumulating around your equipment are common symptoms of an open, separated, or damaged water hookup.
Your Pipes Are Corroded
Rust and corrosive substances will accumulate in your plumbing system as it ages. Rust and other forms of corrosion can slowly eat away at your pipes, diminishing their strength and creating gaps that allow water to leak through. If your lines are old, warped, or discolored, this indicates corrosion and may require pipe replacement.
Your Water Pressure Is Too High
High water pressure can cause damage to your pipes, resulting in pipe leaks or, in severe circumstances, bursting pipes. Your pipes can only tolerate so much water pressure. If you have leakage or are concerned about your water pressure levels, don’t hesitate to contact Alpha Plumbing to evaluate your water pressure and make any required adjustments.
Pipes Are Clogged
Clogged pipes can be a nuisance in and around your house. They can lead to structural damage, leaks, and overflowing or bursting pipes when pressure builds up behind the blockage. Corrosive and toxic compounds can also be found in clogged pipes.
