Pipe Repair Frequently Asked Questions

There are 3 common reasons pipes will leak. They are:

  • Excess pressure. When too much pressure is applied to pipes, it can easily cause them to spring a leak. 
  • Cracks. Although cracks aren’t experienced as commonly due to new advances in plumbing technology, they’re certainly still possible. For those pipes that do crack, the water has to go somewhere as it travels through, so it’s only natural that a bit would begin to seep out.
  • Corrosion. Corroding pipes can absolutely lead to a leak as well, and corrosion can be caused by a number of factors – these factors include the chemicals in your water, the pH in your water, the temperature of your water, the water pressure and velocity, and the oxygen content of your water. 

Yes. Just because a leak is small now doesn’t mean it won’t grow bigger over time. Water leaking out of your pipes or fixtures will eventually cause enough corrosion that even a pinhole-sized leak can grow and potentially cause damage to your home.

Many people believe that small leaks will stay small even if ignored for a while, but the truth is that over time, they will get worse. That’s because the water from the leak will erode your pipes, which ultimately makes a small leak grow in size. Small leaks can quickly turn into thousands of dollars in repairs if you don’t repair them quickly.

The rates may vary depending on whether it is business or private residence – and the timeframe. Keown Plumbing always assess the problem and offer a realistic quote before making a repair. Call today for a free estimate.

How to prevent pipe damage

Sometimes pipe damage cannot be prevented but there are some things that can be done to lower the chances of a damaged pipe.

As plumbers, we see a lot of tree roots growing into pipes. If you’re planting trees, place them away from the home and all underground piping. This will save you loads of headache and money in the future.

Also, avoid flushing wipes. Even the ones labeled “flushable” are problematic. When it comes to
flushing products down your toilet, stick to toilet paper. All other items should be thrown in the

In kitchens, avoid pouring grease down your sink. Grease builds up over time, eventually becoming hazardous. While we have solutions for jetting your drains, grease buildup doesn’t remove easily. The best way to avoid pipe damage is to keep damaging materials out of your pipes in the first place.
