Common Causes of Leaky Pipes

Leaky pipes can be a pain to fix, especially when you don’t know the cause of it. Here is a list of common causes:

  • Broken seals: Sealing can degrade causing it to crack and allows water to pour through.
  • Corrosion: Rust can form on your pipes and cause them to degrade.
  • High water pressure: When you have high water pressure, the water hits the pipes hard and causes them to become damaged and cracked. 
  • Damaged pipe joints: Joints have curved pieces that attach to straight pieces. Over time temperature and water pressure can cause the joints to deteriorate
