Ensuring that pipes are regularly maintained is critical. However, ensuring that pipes are routinely maintained while living in an older home is even more important. The older a plumbing system gets, it deteriorates over time as any system does. Although, for plumbing systems, generally indications would be shown regarding problems. If not observed, problematic signs for pipe problems may be missed which would significantly end up in costly damages.

A few areas may be looked into when considering if pipes are worn out, such as:
  1. Leakage.
    Even the smallest leak could be a warning sign for a pipe related issue that may require replacement. The smell of mold or must is unavoidable. If noticeable after a home has been thoroughly washed down and cleaned, there is probably a leakage.
  2. Corrosion of tubes.
    If tubing of the pipes reflects signs of flaking or dimpling, it is most likely that there is some corrosion that has occurred where the pipe requires replacement.
  3. Discolored water.
    If out of the ordinary colored water begins to emerge from a sink, an adequate Deltona plumbing professional should be called as soon as possible.
  4. Stains.
    If stains are present underneath a household sink or on walls, this could indicate an issue. Stains or warping signs should be observed in a bathroom. This could mean that the drywall has turned moist and has begun to bubble.

Leaky pipes are a very common plumbing issue that we encounter. Depending on how old your plumbing is, this can occur more often.

As common as it may be, it is even more so during the cold winter days. That is because, during the winter, pipes are susceptible to freeze and thaw. And this causes the pipes to crack and result in leaks. The leaks more prevalently occur at the joints.

Corrosion is another primary cause for leaky pipes. Especially if your plumbing was done over 30 years ago. Corrosion can cause the pipe to get damaged and can result in leaks. This corrosion can also occur due to the minerals dissolved in water. If certain foreign chemicals get stuck in the pipe for prolonged periods, it can also result in corrosion. That mostly occurs from clogs within a pipe.

Too high water pressure can also be damaging to the pipes. If this water pressure reaches extremely high levels, it can even result in pipes bursting. Or in certain other cases, it could steadily damage the pipes and result in leaks.

The seals that help keep connections watertight are another place where leaks can occur. These seals can degrade with time and can result in leaks occurring from joints and connections.

Whatever the cause of your leaky pipes is, it can be a disruptive inconvenience. Leaky pipes need to be treated and fixed as soon as possible to prevent a major catastrophe.
