Signs You Need Pipe Repair or Replacement
In many situations, you can tell that your home has a burst or leaky pipe long before it becomes an emergency. Here are a few signs you might need pipe replacement or repair:
- Dripping noises in the walls
- Mold issues throughout your home
- High water bills
- Water marks on walls or ceilings
- Fluctuating water pressure
- Discolored or foul-smelling tap water
Common Causes of Pipe Damage
Pipe damage is often hidden within walls, so it can be easy to miss if you’re not aware of what can cause water pipes to burst or leak in the first place. A few common causes of pipe damage include:
- Freezing conditions: As water flowing through a pipe freezes and expands, the pressure builds on the pipe itself, which can cause it to burst.
- Rust and corrosion: Rust and corrosion can eat away at an older pipe until it finally bursts.
- Hard water: The chalky buildup you might see on your plumbing fixtures can occur within your pipes at an even larger scale, which eventually weakens piping.
- Shifting soil: Landscaping, construction work, and erosion can cause underground water pipes to move, increasing the likelihood of leaks and extensive pipe damage.
- Tree root infiltration: Tree roots are drawn to underground water sources like your water line and can break down pipes over time.
- High water pressure: Water pipes were only designed to withstand a certain level of water pressure which, as long as it’s noticed in time, can be adjusted to safer levels by installing a pressure-reducing valve.
- Accidental damage: Never put pressure on exposed pipes in your basement or crawl space by hanging items on them, even lightweight items.
