Water line leaks can surprise you without warning – these leaks can quickly create catastrophic damage to residential communities if not taken care of. Let’s look at the causes of water line breaks, how to identify these breaks, and how Art Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electric can service all your residential communities’ repairs.
Water line breaks are a common occurrence in residential communities. One of the main causes is a result of corrosion in the pipes. Older pipes were often manufactured of iron which rusts and corrodes over time. It’s only a matter of time until this corrosion will result in a water line leak of some kind. Another cause of water line breaks is due to circumferential or longitudinal cracks in the pipe. These types of breaks can range from excessive loads imposed on the pipe during the construction process, excessive soil loads, uneven foundations, and even excessive traffic loads in the area. Sometimes roots from surrounding trees can also cause a crack.
There are several ways to identify a water line leak – here we have listed a few of the typical warning signs:
If you suspect a water leak, you need to take action immediately – if water line leaks are left unfixed they can cause damage to your property and sometimes a number of properties and infrastructure in your community. You should never attempt to fix these leaks – always call a professional plumber – attempting to fix water line leaks on your own without a plumber could result in bigger, more expensive plumbing problems later on.
