WHY WATER LEAKS OCCUR
When something’s leaking, you’ll likely notice the puddles of water forming on the floor and a high water bill. But there can also be a hidden water leak that proves trickier to locate. Here are some of the reasons why water leaks occur around the home.
Seals are typically put around all the water connectors of appliances and the doors of things like fridges or dishwashers. As they age, the seal will wear out and may break, which can be indicated by condensation on the appliance or in puddles nearby.
Blocked drains can lead to pipes overflowing or bursting. Obstructions can be caused by a build-up of hair, soap, and grease.
EXCESS WATER PRESSURE
High or uneven pressure can cause pipes to strain and can cause leaks. Most faucets and pipes can only withstand a specific level of pressure, but without proper visibility, leak detection services are needed to identify issues.
Most water leaks actually begin outside of the home. Tree roots can invade water lines and cause water to leak out into your garden. If you have trees growing close to your home, take note of any wet patches or sinkholes in your yard as they can indicate a root invasion.
Rust and other corrosion can eat away at pipes. Look out for discolouration or warping as an indication. If your plumbing system is a bit older, it’s a good idea to replace the pipes that have a high risk of corrosion to avoid a disaster before it happens.
Where pipes connect is often the weakest point in a line. These joints deteriorate with time, which can cause leaks. Unfortunately, pipe joints aren’t easily visible, so you need to pay attention to other signs. Pipes that make loud noises, particularly when you open the hot water tap, are an indication that the pipe joints could be under a lot of pressure. Alternatively, you may need specialist forms of acoustic leak detection to identify the issue.
RAPID TEMPERATURE CHANGES
Extreme temperature changes can force pipes to expand and contract, which can lead to them cracking, forming leak problems, or in extreme circumstances, burst water pipes. Naturally, this can cause costly property damage.
LOOSE WATER CONNECTORS
The hoses and pipes that supply water to the appliances in your home can come loose and cause a leak. For example, the hose of a washing machine may spring a leak due to how it shakes during the spin cycles. You may have a water connector leak if there are puddles around the appliance or water running directly from the supply line.
