Most Common Reasons For Leaky Pipes

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.
