Water Leaks 101

Water leaks are a nuisance in so many ways. They can lead to significant water damage, destruction of your home’s infrastructure, and mold growth throughout your home. To avoid these problems, learn more about where your water is most likely leaking from.

Common Source of Water Leaks

Clogged Drains

We all know that clogged drains are problematic. They’re a hassle and annoying to deal with when you’re trying to take a shower or wash the dishes. But they can also lead to major leaks within your home. In addition, all of that pressure from the clogged drain eventually will build up and cause cracks to form in your piping. To prevent this, make sure to clear all clogged drains in a timely manner. And if a home remedy clog removal won’t work, give us a call for professional help.

Toilet Leak

Did you know that up to 35% of all residential toilets leak? You might not even notice it because it could be leaking inside of the toilet bowl. One example of this is a running toilet. You are likely familiar with the sound of a toilet that just won’t stop running. A broken flapper seal usually causes this. This seal is supposed to keep water from the tank from constantly flowing into the bowl, but if the seal is broken, then there’s nothing to stop the waste of water.

High Water Pressure

When was the last time you inspected your home’s water pressure? If it’s been a while, go check it out right now. Water pressure that is too high can put a lot of strain on your home’s pipes. Water pressure should be at 60 psi, but your home’s system is built to withstand a maximum of 80 psi. Anything higher than that can start to cause water leaks from pipe seams or cracks.
