Water Leaks; Pipe Corrosion Is On The Rise In Central Florida

Pipe corrosion is on the rise in Central Florida. While nobody wants to think about it, pipes don’t last forever.

Water Leaks; Pipe Corrosion Is On The Rise In Central Florida - Water Leak Detection Blog - Orlando, Florida | Leak Doctor - pipes(1)Pipe failure can occur for several reasons, chemicals in the water, pH level, oxygen concentration, temperature, poor installation, exposure to soil, and electrical conductivity. Over time, the metal surface starts to thin internally. Causing deep pits and pinholes, which tend to happen behind the scenes, behind walls, beneath the flooring, under the soil, and in the ceiling. Water starts to slowly leak and end up causing significant damage.

According to recent research by Texas A&M, AgriLife Extension, “Corrosion is one of the most common problems affecting domestic water supplies. Chemical processes slowly dissolve metal, causing plumbing pipes, fixtures and water-using equipment to deteriorate and fail.”

The most common symptoms of corrosive water are:

• Cold water tastes bitter at first use in the morning, and the taste improves after running the water for a few seconds.

• Blue-green stains in sinks and/or at the joints of copper piping.

• Water leaks in floor, wall or ceiling areas from pin-size or larger holes in metal pipes.

Water damage can be very misleading, sneaking into small crevasses and trapping pockets of saturation. Undetected dampness or moisture will continue to cause destruction. Often times this type of issue can only be located by sophisticated moisture detection equipment.

The cost of finding and fixing the leak will far outweigh the damage that may occur in your home if the leak goes unnoticed.
