What Causes Pipes to Leak?

  • 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.
