Water leaks can be very costly to a homeowner. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency; “On an average, leaks can cause almost 10,000 gallons of wastage in a home every year, and this amount is sufficient to fill a swimming pool. The most common issues of leakage are dripping faucets, leakage in toilet flappers, or leaking valves, all of which can be easily fixed. However, among these, the most prominent leakage issue is caused by a dripping faucet; fixing one can save almost 10% of a homeowner’s water bill.”
What causes a Water Leak?
Dripping Faucet – An O-Ring inside a faucet can wear out. Corroded valve seat will allow leakage around the spout area. Washers wear out through constant friction. Loose Parts and Worn out seals are other culprits of faucet leakage.
Broken Plumbing – Broken pipes develop cracks that can interfere with water pressure.
Plumbing Joints Leaking – Plumbing lines are glued together or soldered and can erode over time allowing water to flow through.
Pipes – can develop leaks from freezing temperatures, or with age the lining weakens.
Water Leaks can cause serious Damage
Water leaks that are undetected in walls, floors, slabs and crawl spaces can leak a lot of water and be expensive. It’s important to listen for any leaks within your home. If you have a change in water pressure this is a sign of a leak. If you water bill is extremely high one month to the next, this is also another sign.
