Cracks can happen from normal wear and tear. From the soil shifting, poor installation, chemicals in the water, weather, excessive pressure, and even trees. It just takes a pinhole size leak to cause a big problem.

Corrosion 

Corrosion in plumbing pipes has become a big problem in our community. Between the minerals and chemicals commonly found in the water build up and cause pinhole leaks. This combined with the oxygen content, pH level, and velocity, corrosion is just a matter of time.
