The Causes of Pipe Leaks
Leaning on pure guess work to find your pipe leak can waste a great deal of time while moisture is collecting and potentially causing damage. Our highly trained Riverside County plumbers can rapidly find the culprit and repair or replace the pipe section to handle the problem. Leaks can result from a variety of pipe conditions and our experience in the area helps us to quickly find the source.
Common causes of leaks within large and small structures include:
- Aging pipes: Everything mechanical requires maintenance or replacement eventually. Older plumbing pipes are significantly more vulnerable to the effects of age as the constant passage of water and waste lead to brittleness and cracking in the metal.
- Mineral deposits: Hard water in some homes or buildings is the result of a higher mineral content. These minerals can collect and build up within your pipes over time, even leading to cracks.
- Dents or pressure strains: Poorly installed pipes can suffer from strain over time. Enough pressure at joins or strained sections will lead to eventual breaks.
- Pipe corrosion: Older galvanized pipes and copper piping alike are eventually susceptible to corrosion. Corroded pipes will eventually allow moisture through, or make a significant break more likely.
