How Water Leaks Happen

A water leak may catch you by surprise, but they originate in very logical fashions. These are some of the instigators of water leaks:

Frozen Pipes

Frozen pipes can eventually burst. As the temperatures drop, the water inside them freezes. This is too much for the pipes to handle, causing them to break. But you don't want to turn off your water. Instead, you want to keep it running at a steady trickle. You should also open your cabinets to help circulate warm air to your pipes.

You can also prepare for the winter by insulating your pipes. You can avoid frozen pipes with foam insulation. Ask 1-800-Plumber +Air of Northwest Houston for recommendations about the best insulation options for your pipes.

Age

Even healthy people have to go to the doctor more when they get older. Sometimes, it's a minor issue. But a pattern can be a cause for concern. If your pipes have been leaking more than usual, it could be that they're too old.

Consider repiping if your pipes are constantly needing calls. You should definitely get repiping if your home or business has lead pipes, which are dangerous. Treat your pipes well, and you'll be rewarded with a longer lifespan.

Tree Roots

If you already have a leaky pipe, and that pipe is near any trees, you need to act fast. Otherwise, your leak could get bigger and harder to resolve. Roots love water, and they can soon settle in your pipes. It's definitely unpleasant to have your pipes simultaneously leaking and clogged.

You can try some short-term methods to get rid of the root, such as flushing rock salt. However, you need to focus on long-term solutions. Hire a professional plumbing service like 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge to remove a tree root for your pipe. We'll get rid of the root and repair or replace any affected pipes.

High Water Pressure

High water pressure is too much of a good thing. It can do intense damage to your pipes, including causing water leaks. But how does high water pressure happen, and what can you do to prevent it?

Usually, local water companies are responsible for high water pressure. Multiple people and systems need water, which can cause the companies to overcompensate and go too heavy on the water. It can also come from living at the base of a hill or needing a new expansion pack for your water heater. To help keep your water pressure in check, ask 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge about installing a pressure regulator.

What to Do If You Have a Water Leak

You might not be able to solve the water leak all by yourself, but you can take measures to reduce the damage.

Turn Off Water

You need to stop the flow of water completely. While you might only discover one leaking fixture initially, it could spread to other parts of your home. The safest option is to find your home's water shut-off valve.

If you don't know where the shut-off valve is, locate it now so that you can quickly keep water leaks from worsening. Once it's fully off, call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge for help in fixing your leak. We can also shut off the water for you.

Inspect Fixtures

Water leaks can make you realize how many things in your house use water, and how worn-out they can get with age and extended usage. See what's going on with your water-using fixtures. This means your toilets, sinks, showers, water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers, and anything else relevant.

Even if not all of these fixtures are leaking, it's still good to look for any signs of decay or weak spots. If you want a more thorough examination, call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge. We'll look over all of your plumbing fixtures to seek if any are or could experience water leaks.

Clean Up Water Immediately

Once the water is off, you need to focus on cleaning it up as much as possible. Use whatever you need to dry things up, such as a wet/dry vac or a dehumidifier. Act immediately, because you don't want to wait for mold to start forming. Should you see any signs of mold, you need to get out of the area and call a professional mold remediation service.

You might be able to get the water cleaned up yourself, but you'll still need professional assistance to prevent further issues. Call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge to determine the cause of the leak and what subsequent measures need to be taken.

How to Avoid Water Leaks

Here are a few tactics you can use to prevent water leaks:

Flush Carefully

Clogs can happen due to nature, but they often happen due to human error. Don't flush anything down your toilet other than toilet paper and human waste. Even things that you think should be flushable, such as cotton swabs, aren't. You should also train your kids to not flush anything they're not supposed to. There are also handy devices you can install to catch non-flushable items before they go down the drain.

Don't Use Store-Bought Drain Cleaner

Chemical drain cleaners have corrosive properties that eat away at clogs. The problem is, they're also corrosive enough to eat through pipes. When you send it down your drain, it can stay on your pipes and slowly ruin them. Even worse, it can be useless against certain kinds of clogs, such as ones from tree roots and hard objects.

There are some chemicals you can safely use to unclog your drains, such as a mixture of vinegar and baking soda, accompanied by hot water. However, this should be seen as a short-term solution. To get rid of a clog and keep leaks from happening or worsening, call 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge.

Know When to Replace

If your fixtures are nearing their natural deadline, you should get them replaced. Your water heater might last more than 15 years, depending on how well you take care of it. However, it could soon start to malfunction and leak, becoming a major inconvenience as you work to get it replaced in time.

Keep track of your fixtures and their ages. If you keep having to repair them for leaks, you should save your money and just get them replaced. Ask 1-800-Plumber +Air of Woodbridge about newer, advanced fixture installation.

Kenneth C.

My daughter Natalie Permenter actually ordered the service. I'm at her house during the day to keep my grandson. I was very impressed by Emanuel, the plumber that cam. He was very professional and seemed to really care about his clients. Natalie tells me the lady in the office also showed professionalism and a genuine desire to help. Emanuel was disappointed that he couldn't get the job done on day one; but promised to come back the next day. True to his word he was here bright and early. I am so impressed to finally find a company that really cares about the consumer; not just the dollar.
