Leaky pipes are no fun.

However our Go Green plumbing technicians have the skills and expertise to provide immediate relief.  The very first thing you want to remember is that no matter the size or severity of the leak, it demands immediate action. While there’s nothing fun about a leak, letting a leak get worse will cause even more trouble and cost you even more money.

 

Common Causes of Leaking Pipes

 

Before we proceed let’s take a look at some of the most common causes of leaky pipes.

Clogs or blockages
Rust and corrosion
Cracked or broken pipes
Tree root intrusion
Offset or shifted pipes

Time and general wear and tear all contribute to leaking pipes, as does the initial pipe installation.  This is why you should always have pipes installed properly by a professionally certified and trained plumber with the right materials. This will go a long way in ensuring leaky pipes stay at a minimum.

Symptoms of Leaking Pipes

Unlike other common plumbing problems, leaky pipes are fairly easy to diagnose. You can check for these signs around the house:

  • Low or unpredictable water pressure
  • Rusty or otherwise discolored water
  • Corroding or rusting pipes
  • Water spots or puddles
  • Dripping sounds
  • Weak ground
  • Increased utility bill

What to Do?

Unfortunately, leaky pipes will not get better, they will get much worse. They will get bigger, and they can cause serious damage.  Contacting a reliable plumber is always a good choice as it prevents the problem from getting worse and stops it in its tracks.
