Common Causes / Types of Pipe Leakage

(1) Excess water pressure

Pipes can only endure a certain amount of water pressure. When the water pressure rises too high, it may put unnecessary strains on the water pipes, which will lead to a pipe burst or a leak in the end.

(2) Corrosion

Corrosion can happen when the pipes begin to rust or if there is corrosive material flowing through them. The corrosion will erode the pipe over time, resulting in a leak. Any discolouration or unusual changes in the pipes might be an indication of corrosion if any discolouration or unusual changes are detected around them.

(3) Clogged pipes

Clogs are caused by foreign or huge objects getting trapped in the pipe. Clogged drains and sink are quite common. Because the supply of water or the passage of water continues to increase, pressure builds up in the region of blockage, causing an overflow or pipe breakage, resulting in a leak.

(4) Broken seals in pipes

When pipes or equipment are put in place, they are sealed. The seal may wear down with time, allowing the leak to develop. Before the seal breaks off, look for indications of a water leakage problem. If there is condensation near the seal or even a puddle around it, you might be dealing with a water leak.

(5) Damaged pipe joints

The connecting joints between the pipes are where the weakest link would be found. When the contents in the pipes, usually waste water, changes direction at the joints, there is a lot of pressure. Built up pressure can cause greater wear and tear on the joints, which can eventually lead to a leak.

(6) Tree roots

If you own a home, the pipes in your yard are generally your responsibility. If there is a tree in the yard, its roots may intrude on the pipe and damage it or cause a blockage, thereby causing a leak. Although they’re difficult to detect, wet patches or sink holes in the lawn, as well as a rapid drop in water pressure, can indicate these leaks.
