SOME COMMON WATER LEAKS IN YOUR HOUSE

Water comes from a lot of sources and there are various appliances that run through water hence water leaks can arise anytime and from anywhere. In this blog, you will get to know about some common household leaks which can further help you to identify them at the earliest and prevent them as soon as possible.

1. Leaky Toilets

As we all know that toilets run constantly through water but they also waste a large amount of water that merely goes into the sewer. Leaky toilets can prove to be highly expensive and hence it is important to take care of them at the early stage.

2. Leaky Faucets

Faucets can also cause huge amounts of water leaks. You need to look out for various signs which signify that faucets are leaking. Hard water or water pressure may be the reason behind leaky faucets. In some cases, you can merely go for a repair whereas in some cases you may need to replace the entire faucet.

3. Leaky Supply Lines

Sometimes water damage can arise either in the ceiling or in the wall. In this case, the reason may be your plumbing supply lines. Your plumbing pipes are considered to carry water to the faucets and other areas. You can witness these types of leaks only when they start to soak your drywall. To prevent these water leaks, you can go for stainless steel plumbing. SS pipe fittings are known to be highly secured and leak-proof due to the double edge security. If you are constructing a new house, the best idea is to choose stainless steel plumbing. On the other hand, if you currently have plastic or galvanized pipes at your place, you should think of replacing them with stainless steel press fittings and pipes.
