How Do Water Leaks Develop?

Knowing the signs of a water leak is important. Catching the problem early through leak detection will save you a lot of hassle (and money) down the road. But what causes leaks to form in the first place? At 1st Choice Plumbing we know a thing or two about leaks. Here’s what our water leak detectors see as the most common sources of this problem.

  • Water pressure issues – Problems with water pressure often lead to household leaks. If you ever notice fluctuations in water pressure, call a plumber.
  • Accidental damage – Excavation and drilling services require extreme care. If an accident occurs during either of these processes, water pipes can be damaged.
  • Shoddy installation or repairs – Poorly installed plumbing systems will often lead to leaks. Attention to detail matters when a home is built or plumbing repairs are needed. If you hire an unqualified plumber to do the work, prepare yourself for leaks and other problems in the future.
  • Corrosion or deterioration – Pipes that begin to corrode or deteriorate will often cause leaks. If you suspect a problem, call us to inspect your plumbing for you. Catching the issue now will prevent you from having to fix a full-blown leak later.
