Utah leak detection and leak location plumbers
Making sure your pipes do not leak is an important part of any home upkeep plan. The problem is that not all leaks are obvious. Sometimes the leak is so small that it cannot be detected by the naked eye. Other times leaks happen in pipes that are not usually visible. There are a variety of places where leaks can occur and likewise, a there are a lot of things that can cause a leak.
Common causes of pipe leaking
Wear and tear on the pipe
Pipes just like all things can and do deteriorate over time. Pipes freezing during the winter time or pipes getting old, can and will cause leaks over time. Repairing and fixing these leaks are all part of home and business maintenance.
Sometimes the chemical buildup of your tap water can cause corrosion of your pipes over time. Harsh chemical drain cleaners that are not properly washed out can also eat away at your pipes and cause leaks.
Tree roots and ground settling
Mother nature is not always on our side when it comes to our homes. Tree and plant roots can grow into your piping system and cause extensive damage.
The risks of leaky pipes
There are many risks to you, your family and your home when it comes to a leak. From a health perspective, water leaks can cause molds which can lead to sickness or worse if exposed to the mold over time. Gas leaks are just, if not more dangerous because they are usually harder to notice and can have life-threatening side effects. There are also cost damages associated with a leak such as an inflated water and utility bill. Finally, damage to your personal property or home can be caused by a leak.
