Symptoms of Water Leaks
There are several signs that you may have a leaking pipe, and some of them may be hidden and not be readily apparent. That’s why it’s important to know the warning signs and have the cause found and repaired as soon as possible.
The signs of a water leak include:
- Water stains on walls or ceilings
- Musty smell in certain areas of the home
- High humidity and window condensation
- An unexpected increase in your water bill
- A water meter that shows usage when no water is running
If you notice any of these symptoms, it's important to locate the cause and have a plumber repair the leak as soon as possible. A leaking pipe can cause serious water damage to your home and increase your monthly water bill. Water leaks can also cause unhealthy mold and mildew and will attract insects and rodents.
What Causes Leaking Pipes?
There are several common causes of leaking pipes, including:
Corrosion: Older pipe materials such as cast iron or galvanized steel can corrode over time, leading to small cracks or holes in the pipes.
Frozen Pipes: When the water inside a pipe freezes it will expand, which can cause it to crack or break.
Poor installation or repairs: Pipes that are not installed or repaired correctly may become loose or disconnected over time, which can cause leaks.
Wear and tear: Over time, with continuous use plumbing systems are subjected to repeated changes in water pressure as well as vibration. This can lead to connections becoming loose.
