Common Types of Plumbing Leaks

Understanding the different types of plumbing leaks and how they can affect your property is a first step to being more proactive about plumbing maintenance. Gain a basic understanding of your plumbing system and its potential weak points, and then combine this with a maintenance and cleaning plan from Mr. Rooter Plumbing so you can prevent leaks before they ever occur.

Here are some of the different types of plumbing leaks we see in our day-to-day work:

  • Leaking Pipes - Over time, even the highest quality pipes can potentially develop cracks or holes, especially if subjected to extreme or rapidly fluctuating temperatures. Even nearly microscopic leaks can waste significant water over time, leading to structural damage, mold, or even flooding.
  • Dripping Faucets - A perpetually dripping faucet doesn’t just make an obnoxious noise; it also represents wasted water and higher utility bills.
  • Running Toilets - Like a dripping faucet, a constantly running toilet is more than just an annoying sound. When your toilet constantly runs, the tank is not reaching or maintaining a full state. This indicates a leak.
  • Hidden Leaks - Leaks that are concealed within walls, under flooring, or even beneath a home’s foundation can cause severe damage and, many times, go unnoticed until serious water damage is already starting to take place.
  • Appliance Leaks - Appliances like water heaters, dishwashers, and ice machines—as well as the valves where they connect to your water system—can also be common sites for leaks.
  • Drain Pipe and Sewer Line Leaks - Leakage in your drains or sewer can represent an entirely different set of problems, one which must be dealt with swiftly to mitigate the many potential health and safety hazards associated with wastewater leaks.
