6 causes of pipe leaks and their solutions

Have you had any recent problems with your sewer systemΑποφράξεις Αντωνίου? Did they end up causing pipe leaks which are a nightmare? It is never a good thing to find out that you have got a leak in your home, and while the professionals might be always available to fix these kinds of issues, it does not make the reality and the economic consequences of these imminent repairs any easier to swallow.

The leaks will waste water, leave water damage marks on your floors and ceilings, and even lead to the appearance of mold. In short, it is something that should be treated immediately. But generally, not knowing where these leaks are coming from can be quite frustrating, so we are going to offer you an insight at the common causes of plumbing leaks.

1 Broken Seals

When you first get and install your appliances, there are various kinds of seals around every water connection which ensure the proper water pressure in the appliances themselves, and at the same time they are keeping drips and leaks from finding their way on to your floor. If there is somewhere a broken seal, you may notice condensation at the appliance or even a small puddle near the seal.

The solution to this problem is to ensure that you properly insulate your house appliances and every pipe possible. It will save you a lot of money on minor fixes and it will prevent puddles from appearing anywhere in your bathroom and kitchen.

2 Clogs

Everybody has experienced a clog, either at their house or business and either in their sink or bathtub drain at some point. However, in certain instances those clogs can cause much bigger problems, such as overflowing or pipe bursts.

In order to avoid these kinds of problems, you should make sure to clean your drains properly. Have an annual drain cleaning done by professionals Αποφράξεις Αργυρούπολη– in every drain at your house. This way, you will not have to deal with clogs in the middle of winter or summer and of course, you will get rid of the frustration that a clog creates.

3 Corrosion

The older your sewer system gets, the older the pipes  in your walls are going to get, and sometimes, that could be caused by corrosion. If you notice any discoloration or warping on any visible pipes of your house, it’s possible that they  are in need of replacement in order to repair the leaks that either are already there or may be on their way if you will not correct the issue on time.

For your own good, stop using chemical cleaners and unclogging products that you find in the market. They tend to corrode the inside of your pipes leading to further problems.

4 Damaged Joints

The joints that  are installed to connect pipes together are a common cause of leaks. They tend to leave place for water to break through if they are not properly installed. Some times the seals in those joints fail, or pressure from excess water running through the pipes  puts too much stress on the joints and then water can leak through.

The solution to this issue is to have your system inspected once every two to five years so that you will be able to prevent any further problems. Also, insulation is key so make sure that the job is done by professionals Αποφράξεις Αμπελόκηποι.

5 Extreme Changes in Temperature

Weather is something that no homeowner can , but it is worth knowing that sudden changes in temperature will lead to leaks. Your pipes can expand because of the heat and contract because of the cold with the rapid drop or rise in temperature, and in so doing they could experience some sort of damage that causes leaks.

There is not a solution for this issue but you should know that high quality pipes will probably last more in extreme temperature changes.

6 Tree Roots

If we were to present a worst-case scenario, it would be about the fact that tree roots can grow straight through your sewer system line, causing stagnant water in your showers and the rest of your drains. If you  happen to notice any or all of the things mentioned above, it’s important to get in touch with a technician right away.

They will clean the line to get rid of these roots, or even run a sewer inspecting camera through the line to find out what is causing the issues.
