Signs You Have a Leaking Pipes

Causes of Leaking Pipes
There are a variety of reasons and causes that you are experiencing leaking pipes. One of the most common causes that we see are blocked drains full or debris, minerals, or corrosion buildup. Corrosion buildup is a separate buildup compared to mineral or debris. Corrosion is generally caused through the aging of the pipes. This usually happens within steel pipes. While steel pipes having a long life of approximately twenty years corrosion over time can build up and cause a weak pipe. Another reason for leaking pipes are small cracks in the pipe or underground movements such as growth of tree roots or earthquakes may disrupt the structure of the piping. Cracks in the piping should not be ignored. If there is a small crack in the piping, over time the leak could become larger and cause greater future expenditure.
