Common Causes of Water Pipe Leak

A small crack can come up with devastating consequences. There are many causes to blame for water pipe leaks. Here are the most common causes:

  • Age of Pipes: Pipes can deteriorate over time, and older pipes are more susceptible to developing leaks. If your pipes are older, they may start to corrode, develop rust, or other problems, which can weaken the pipe material and eventually cause leaks.
  • High Water Pressure: High water pressure can put excessive strain on pipes, leading to leaks. Over time, high water pressure can cause pipes to weaken and crack, leading to leaks.
  • Poor Installation: Improper installation of pipes can cause leaks. For example, if pipes are not properly secured, they can shift and create leaks.
