Common Causes of Water Leaks
A water leak can happen for almost any reason. Your pipes work hard daily to pump water throughout your home. Some of the most common causes of water leaks include the following:
The most common cause of water leaks is a leak near the pipe joint. As water passes through the pipe joints, it swirls and squeezes into each pipe. The additional turbulence breaks down the pipe joint over time.
Hard Water Leak
If your water has a high level of minerals, it will cause your water pipes to deteriorate faster. Water with a low pH value can affect corrosion as the pipes age.
Water will shoot through your pipes at an accelerated rate of speed if it is highly pressurized. The pipes wear away over time as the pressure forces tiny fractures.
