Frequently Asked Questions
Purchase patch kits for plumbing leaks from the hardware store. You can also use a hose clamp with a rubber patch. Waterproof tape wrapping or using an epoxy paste can also help, but keep in mind that epoxy paste should be applied when the pipe is dry. However, these measures might only serve as a temporary measure, because once an area of your plumbing starts to leak, there’s a good chance that other spots can start leaking as well. You should therefore contact a professional plumber.
- Presence of water loving bugs: the sight of water loving bugs can indicate increased humidity and dampness in your home. A water leak is most likely what’s attracting the bugs to begin with.
- Mildew or odor of decaying wood: when you suddenly start sighting mold inside your house, this means that there may be a leak. There could also be a leak if you notice the odor of mildew, decaying wood or that of stagnant water.
- Unusual noises in your plumbing: air in the lines as a result of leaks can cause pinging or stuttering when a faucet is turned on.
- Wet spots: a leak in the pipes can cause wet spots on the walls and carpets. Your yard can also become soggy and subsequently dip. The drywall can also begin to buckle as it absorbs water.
- Sediments and rust in the water: since rust causes pipe leakage, sediments and rust particles in the water could indicate leakage.
- Lag your pipes: changes in the weather can cause water in the pipes to freeze. Consequently, the pipes will expand, causing leaks to occur. However, lagging the pipes with insulation can help prevent this. It can also help you to save money on energy bills.
- Know the location of your pipes: you can prevent plumbing emergencies by knowing exactly where your pipes are within the walls, so as to avoid putting nails in those areas.
- Keep your boiler serviced: service your boiler regularly, so as to detect any underlying problems with your central heating system early enough.
- Keep the water pressure at a reasonable level: high water levels can severely strain your pipes in the long run, causing leaks and reducing the life expectancy of your plumbing. Continuous high water pressure puts a lot of strain on the components of the plumbing system, such as joints and valves. You should therefore keep the pressure moderate at all times.
- Corrosion: several factors can cause your pipes to corrode, including ageing, water quality issues, and the resultant chemical reactions.
- Clogs: clogs are often the most common cause of leaks. When a clog is present, the water begins to drain more slowly. This takes a long while to drain off completely or stop draining at all. Subsequently, this causes the pipes to start leaking.
- Degradation and movement: over time, the foundation of your house settles; this in turn causes a shift in the pipes, which may potentially separate them.
- Water pressure: pipes are designed to bear a certain amount of pressure. Leaks occur when this pressure is exceeded.
