What Causes Pipe Leaks?

Becoming familiar with the most common causes of pipe leaks can help you to avoid them and prevent water damage and costly repairs. 

Here are some of the most common causes of pipe leaks:

  • Corrosion: Over time, plumbing pipes experience plenty of wear and tear, which leads to rust and corrosion. Corrosion can create weak spots that eventually turn into leaks.
  • High water pressure: Excessive water pressure can put a strain on pipes, causing them to develop cracks. 
  • Temperature changes: Extreme temperature fluctuations can cause pipes to expand and contract, leading to leaks or pipe bursts.
  • Tree root intrusion: Tree roots seek out moisture and can infiltrate underground pipes, causing them to crack or break. 
  • Poor installation: Improperly installed pipes or fittings can result in weak joints or connections, leading to leaks over time. 
  • Pipe clogs: The buildup of debris, grease, or mineral deposits can create blockages in pipes, leading to increased pressure and potential leaks. 
  • Joint or seal failure: Faulty pipe joints or deteriorated seals can result in water leakage over time. 

By understanding these causes, you can implement preventative maintenance practices and ensure the longevity and functionality of your plumbing system.

Types of Leaks

There are two main types of water leaks: internal and external leaks. 

An internal water leak refers to water leakage within the plumbing system or infrastructure of a building, typically hidden from plain sight. 

An external leak refers to water leakage outside the building or property, typically in outdoor plumbing systems, irrigation systems, or underground pipes.

These are usually easier to detect because they usually cause water to pool on the ground. Both types of leaks can cause significant damage to your property and can even result in a hazardous situation.
