The Most Common Causes of Water Leaks

Published on: October 21, 2021

Running Toilets

Ranked among the biggest culprits of water leaks, a running toilet can waste upwards of a full gallon of water PER MINUTE. Luckily these leaks are usually an easy fix.

Leaky Fixtures

Leaky fixtures are also a big problem. The EPA estimates that a leaky faucet dripping just ONE drip per second can waste up to 3000 gallons of water a year! Leaks are often caused by worn out washers, bad seals, corrosion or normal wear.

Rapid Temperature Changes

While Florida doesn’t see many freezing nights, rapid temperature changes can cause contraction and expansion, causing seals to weaken and seams to burst.

Root Intrusion

Sometimes mother nature is to blame. Typically caused by intruding roots, sewer, septic and drain pipes, as well as water mains can all become susceptible to Mother Nature.

Old Age and Wear and Tear

Over time, general wear and tear from daily use can weaken or damage faucets, toilet internals, seals, pipe joints and more.
