Common Sources of Leaks
Your plumbing system runs throughout your home and any part of it can leak. There are many reasons it can start leaking, which is why you need a Houston, TX, plumber to investigate potential sources. The most common causes include:
- High Water Pressure: About 60 psi is the recommended water pressure for residential plumbing. Once it gets to 80 psi or above, the pressure can damage pipe walls and eventually cause them to burst.
- Worn Seals and Connections: Over time, the seals on pipe connectors can wear out and cause leaks. Damaged pipe joints can cause noise and water leaks; when running hot water, you may hear banging and ticking sounds.
- Corrosion: A pipe that looks rusted or is warped or discolored should be replaced. Newer pipes are much more resilient and durable, so you won’t have to worry about corrosion for a while.
- Pipe Damage: Aside from normal wear and tear, movement or excess force on a pipe can cause it to crack. The problem will only worsen from there, while underground pipes are susceptible to tree root intrusion, which can cause anything from clogs to leaks, to complete collapses of water and sewer lines.
- Extreme Temperatures: If your plumbing rapidly freezes and thaws out, thermal expansion and contraction of pipe materials can cause it cracking or complete failure.
