Signs of Leaking Pipes
Some pipe leaks might be obvious even to the untrained eye, but there are many leaks that are much more difficult to identify. A leaking pipe that is in a wall or ceiling might not be readily apparent or it could be a leak in an underground supply line. If you think there may be a leaking pipe in your home, there are some signs that you can look for.
In some cases, the signs of a leaking pipe might be visual. If you see water dripping from an exposed pipe in an area like the basement, that is a sign of a leak. You might see stains or water damage on walls or ceilings, which can be another sign that you have a leak. Things like mold and mildew on walls outside the shower can also indicate the presence of leaky pipes.
Many homeowners become aware of leaks because of their water bill. If you notice a significant increase in your water bill, it might be the first sign that you have leaking pipes in your home. If you think there might be a leak, you could try turning off all of the faucets and fixtures that draw from the water supply. If you see that your meter is still turning with everything turned off, then there is a good chance that you have at least one leaking pipe.
Causes of Leaking Pipes
You have a variety of factors that can contribute to problems with leaking pipes. With most pipe leaks, corrosion is the most likely culprit. Older galvanized pipes commonly have problems with rust, and while corrosion problems are less common with copper pipes or PEX, there are conditions that can increase the risk of corrosion in copper or PVC pipes.
The joints in your water supply pipes can also begin to deteriorate or degrade over time. The water hardness can be another factor that will increase the potential for pipes to develop leaks. Things like high water pressure and water that is of particularly high temperature can also contribute to problems with leaking pipes.
Another potential problem is pipes that have been damaged as a result of the use of drain cleaning chemicals. It is strongly recommended that you use proper drains cleaning methods such as a drain snake or hydro-jet cleaning rather than attempting to use a chemical cleaner.
