Corrosion occurs for several reasons, harsh chemicals in the water, aging pipes, high water pressure, and even neglect. Corrosion happens more often than not, eating away at your pipes from the inside out.  Look for any rust on visible pipes. 

If you suspect a water leak, the most cost effective way to locate is to call a professional. They have the proper equipment to locate the leak without breaking into walls or floors.

How Old Are Your Pipes?

No matter what type of materials your pipes are made of, they don’t last forever. Typically, it is just 20 years. Do you know when your pipes were installed, if they were updated? 

Do you have any trees on your property? A common problem here in Central Florida is roots causing pressure on pipes and even making their way into piping. The right leak detection equipment can save needlessly digging  holes in the yard. 

How Is The Quality Of Your Water?

Water contains minerals, some more than others. These minerals create lime scale deposits, which in turn cause tine pinhole leaks. If they are allowed to go undetected, they can create a serious problem. 

How Is Your Water Pressure?

Though high water pressure is great for showers, they aren’t so great for plumbing pipes. In fact, they weaken them, causing premature aging. The average psi for a home's water pressure should be between 30 and 50.
