How To Detect A Water/Plumbing Leak Inside A Wall

It can happen for a number of reasons. Just one of the water pipes running inside your wall springs a leak. If not found and repaired in a timely manner, it can end up costing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in repairs.

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. 

Excess Pressure 

Who doesn’t love a great shower, but all that water pressure can eventually spring a leak. True, pipes care designed to take a lot of pressure, but over time the age and get weaker. 

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.
