Water and sewer lines don’t last forever. It’s important to keep an eye on them with regular inspections and other services. If corrosion is allowed to progress without intervention, weak spots could become leaks, and this can lead to a great deal of damage to your home.
There are many reasons why leaks could arise, besides the lifetime of the pipe and corrosion. Small foundation shifts that happen over time could put a great deal of stress on the pipe, and can even cause them to disconnect. Tree roots and extreme changes in temperature could also cause cracks and leaks. Even high water pressure can put a great deal of wear and tear on the interior of the pipe. All of these will have symptoms if they have caused leaks. Low water pressure and a foul smell from the water could indicate that something is wrong. Mold growth under sinks, both in the kitchen or the bathroom, could also indicate that there is some kind of leak present in the pipelines that need to be fixed right away.
