Signs of Pipe Leak
The bursting and leaking of pipes will only happen when the condition of the pipe gets worse. Before that, there are always signs that your pipe will likely develop leaks. Here are the major signs that you need to have your water piping inspected for leaks:
- Low water pressure
- Peeling paint
- Lifting tiles
- Damp patches
- Unusual noises coming from the water
- Wet, spongy lawns without rain
- Mould and mildew formation
- Discoloured water
If you notice any of these signs, call Willetton Plumbing & Gas immediately for leak detection and repair services.
What’s Causing Your Pipes to Leak?
There are many factors that could be causing your pipes to leak. For example, an old plumbing system could be a problem because of worn pipes. Here are some of the major causes of pipe leaks and bursts here in Perth:
Your home or business water pressure should be controlled to keep your piping in perfect condition. If the pressure is too high, the piping joints will get loose or weaken to the point of developing leaks.
Change in Temperature
When the temperature of the water changes, there is a likelihood of water expansion, and this can cause the pipes to crack. The most dangerous time is during winter when water in the pipes freezes to ice. The expansion of the solid water (ice) can cause cracks in the pipe.
Poorly installed water piping can develop faults that could result in leaks. If the joints are poorly done, they can develop leaks with slight pressure changes.
Rust and Corrosion
Water pipes can be eaten by corrosion caused by acidic water, hard water, and other elements. With time, they will become brittle and weak, making them susceptible to cracks due to pressure.
If you have trees in your yard, they could be the reason why your water pipes are leaking. Tree roots can make their way into the pipe through the smallest cracks. As the root grows, it will expand the crack, and this could result in a massive water leak or pipe burst.
