Leaking Pipe

A broken pipe has the potential to cause severe injury to you, damage your valuables or home, through flooding, gas poisoning and fire or explosion. The type of repair required will depend on the type of service and pipe material. There are patching and short-term pipe repairs that can be made however a leak in one place often indicates that it is only a matter of time before a leak occurs in another section of pipe. Where an old pipe has corroded to the point of leaking a full renewal is highly likely, which can involve installation of soldered, crimp and threaded fittings. This type of corrosion may be caused by several factors including the service coming into contact with harsh soils, dissimilar metals, salt spray or as simple as an outdated pipe material that is prone to corrosion such as galvanized steel.

Leaking Plumbing FAQs

Where is the most common leak?2023-04-21T06:43:10+00:00

Great question! As experienced plumbers, we can tell you that the most common places for leaks to occur are in bathrooms and kitchens. These areas have a lot of plumbing fixtures, such as toilets, sinks, and faucets, which are used frequently and can develop leaks over time. In bathrooms, leaks can also occur in showerheads, bathtub drains, and water supply lines. In kitchens, leaks can occur in dishwashers, refrigerators with water dispensers, and garbage disposals.

That being said, leaks can occur in any area of the home or business with plumbing. Laundry rooms are another common area for leaks, particularly around washing machine hoses. Basements can also experience leaks, especially in older homes with foundation issues. Outdoor spigots can also develop leaks, which can waste a lot of water and cause damage to your yard or foundation.

To prevent leaks from occurring, it’s important to regularly inspect your plumbing and appliances for signs of wear and tear. Look for damp spots, puddles, or discoloration around fixtures, as well as a decrease in water pressure or an increase in your water bill. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to address the issue promptly to prevent further damage and conserve water.

What damage can leaks cause?2023-04-21T06:42:25+00:00

We’re Luke and Michael from Safeguard Plumbing, and we’re here to help you understand the damage that leaks can cause.

Leaks are a common problem that can lead to a range of issues, including structural damage, mold and mildew growth, wood rot and decay, increased water bills, and damage to personal property. As experienced plumbers, we’ve seen firsthand the damage that leaks can cause, which is why we always recommend addressing them promptly.

If left unaddressed, leaks can weaken building materials and make your home or business unsafe to inhabit. They can also create an environment for mold and mildew to grow, which can pose health hazards. In areas with high moisture levels, leaks can lead to wood rot and decay, which can be particularly dangerous if the affected area is a load-bearing element of the structure.

Leaks can also waste a lot of water, driving up your water bill and putting a strain on your local water supply. This can impact the environment and contribute to water scarcity.

If water comes into contact with personal property, it can cause significant damage, which can be expensive to repair or replace. Furniture can warp or stain, while electronics can short-circuit and become unusable.

To prevent leaks from causing damage, it’s important to address them promptly and take steps to prevent them from occurring in the first place. If you suspect you have a leak, don’t hesitate to reach out to us at Safeguard Plumbing. We’re here to help keep your property safe and secure.
