What Causes Water Leaks?
Clogged drainages and piping systems are also a probable cause of water leaks. Clogs often block the expected continuous flow of water in your piping system, and this can lead to bursting pipes due to accumulating pressure. Moreover, with increased pressure, water might force its way through weak connectors leading to leakages.
Damages Pipe Joints
Corrosions around your Plumbing System
Excess Water Pressure
Intruding Tree Roots
Rapid Temperature Changes
Unexpected changes in temperature in your pipe systems can cause your pipes to expand and contact unwarrantedly. These sudden temperature changes can cause cracking of your pipes, especially if it is a case of freezing temperatures. Consequently, leaking will be the result.
How to Detect a Water Leak
Water leaks might come up when you least expect; you could be sitting in your room, and water flows in from your basement. However, being a little observant might save you from unappealing surprises. Be on the lookout for the following:
Unusual Water Bills

Green Patches around your Water Line
