What Are the Causes of Water Leaks?

There are several reasons that may cause water leaks. These include:

  • Electrolysis, corrosion and or rusting of water pipes  
  • Corrosion  in water heaters
  • Tree roots forcing pipes out of alignment  
  • Clogs in drains and toilets
  • High water pressures putting excess stress on pipes, joints, flexible connectors,  mixer taps, hot water unit and appliances, causing them to leak    (Pressure reduction valves not installed where required )
  • Water hammer (left unchecked)  causing water pipe joints, flexible connectors  to break

Water leaks can cause serious damage to your home if they’re not repaired as soon as possible. This is why it’s vital to know if you have leaks at your home or office.

 

How to Spot A Water Leak?

Fortunately, there are certain signs you can look out for when it comes to water leaks. As a result, you’ll be able to sort out a hidden leak before it gets too severe. So, what are the signs to look out for

 

Fungus, Mould and Mildew

One of the most overlooked dangers of water leaks is fungus, mould and mildew. If you can see the leak, it’s possible to mitigate the build up of fungus, mould and mildew. On the other hand, if you can’t see it and don’t tackle it early, it might lead to:

  • Respiratory issues
  • Asthma
  • Increased allergies

Often, fungus, mould and mildew only present themselves when it’s too late. The best defence against these dangers is to perform routine inspections of your home or business to uncover potential leaks.

 

Increased Water Bills

If your water bills have unexpectedly risen, this may be an indication of a water leak. By paying close attention to your bill, you can be alerted to leaks which will save you money in the long run.

 

Damage to Land and Building

When water mains leak, it can lead to subsidence of land. This results in damage to your:

  • Pathways
  • Driveways
  • Gardens
  • Home
  • Office

A leak causes the earth to move which disrupts whatever is built on top of the soil. For this reason, water leaks from pipes, tanks or central heating systems can cause irreparable damage to your property. Ultimately, this increases costs which can be avoided by detecting leaks early.

 

Increased Presence of Insects, Bugs and Mites

Insects, mosquitoes, bugs and mites love damp environments. These pests will take up residence in your home or office if there are leaks on the premises. They live in walls and floorboards and wreak havoc on the health and safety of everyone on the property. Sorting out your leaks is the best way to prevent an infestation.

What Should You Do If You Suspect A Leak?

If you suspect water leaks, it’s important to take action immediately to prevent further damage. You should:

  • Make sure no water is being used inside or outside the building
  • Locate your water meter and check the leak indicator to see if it’s moving
  • Take a meter reading and then repeat the action one or two hours later to see if water was used
  • Call a professional to detect and remedy the leak
