Midlothian Leak Detection: 4 Common Causes of Pipe Leaks

Posted on: February 6, 2016

Water damage is no laughing matter. If a pipe bursts on the top floor of a high rise, it won’t be long before the maintenance guy in the basement knows about it. Protect your Midlothian home; be vigilant about leak detection and knowing the common causes for pipe leaks.

  1. Deterioration: Each time water passes through or even just sits in a pipe it is causing a little bit of damage to it. Typically, the damage is minute, but inevitably with age and use your Midlothian home’s pipe will weaken. This deterioration will be exacerbated by the elements and shifting settling of your home. Leak detection can be extremely difficult if there is only a small fracture in the pipe. If you don’t remember the last time a professional plumber came to your Midlothian home to conduct a camera inspection it might be worth considering especially if you live in an older home.
  2. Tree Roots: Tree roots are another leak causing culprit. Even if your Midlothian home’s pipes have only minor deterioration, they could be leaking water. Trees roots are experts at leak detection and will work their way to any water source. As you can imagine, tree roots growing into your pipes will greatly worsen any existing corrosion or weakening. Consider cutting down or replanting trees that are close to your home and keep an eye out for patches of grass that are notably greener than others across your lawn. They could be signs of a pipe leak.
  3. Excessive Pressure: It can be tempting to crank up the water pressure to get the most out of your much-deserved hot shower, but if your fixtures are not designed to support the increased pressure it can cause them to leak.
  4. Temperature Changes: Frozen pipes are not a major concern in Midlothian, but dipping below zero isn’t the only way pipes can be damaged by temperature changes. Ever finish cooking then immediately start to wash your pan with cold water? The sudden change in temperature from extremely hot to extremely cold can cause the pan to warp. Improperly insulated pipes are susceptible to the same problem when the temperature unexpectedly drops.

If you suspect there’s a problem, but you’re having difficultly detecting any leaks in your Midlothian home, call in a professional and experienced plumber, like those at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. Our state-of-the-art technology will enable us to find and repair the problem quickly and efficiently.
