Why Do Sink Leaks Develop?

There are a number of ways that sink leaks might develop in Utah. One of the most common culprits is the drain. A drain is usually sealed using a plumber's putty to prevent further leaks; however, it is possible that a drain could get worn out over time. As a result, the plumber putty could start to degrade, leading to a leak. In some situations, it might be better to simply replace the drain completely. In other situations, a plumber might be able to take a closer look and repair the drain.
Some of the other common causes of a sink leak include a loose water supply connection, a clogged P-trap, and a damaged O-ring. Any leak caused by a leaking sink can be fixed by our trained professionals at Utah Flood Cleanup.

How Do Toilet Leaks Develop?

Another common cause of plumbing system leaks involves the toilet. The most common reason why a toilet might leak is a deteriorated or defective flapper ball at the bottom of the toilet tank. Often, this is also a challenge to detect, which is why they trained plumber is required. If the flapper or ball valve does not sit properly, it is not able to form a watertight seal. This causes water to leak around the valve into the toilet bowl. Another possible cause of a toilet leak is a loose connection where the tank meets the toilet. In this situation.

What About Pipe Leaks?

It is also important to highlight problems that can be caused by pipe leaks. Some of the most common causes of leaking pipes include:

  • A broken seal around the water connectors
  • Water lines that might be clogged, leading to increases in pressure that burst the pipes
  • Pipes that freeze during the winter, leading to leaks on the water thaws
  • Corrosion that develops around older pipes
  • Tree roots that might damage the pipes, leading to leaks outside the house
  • Rapid temperature changes

All of these issues have the potential to lead to serious water damage, which is why it is important to rely on trained professionals.
