You may think that pipe leakage only consists of a few drips of water – nothing serious. However, in some case, this small problem about pipes will bring troubles.

Pipe corrosion, temperature change, pipe clogs and joint weakening can cause pipe leakages. First, any abnormal water pressure, chemicals in water, or inappropriate pipe material can all lead to corrosion. Usually, the rust in the pipes is an indicator of the origin of corrosion. Second, any sudden temperature change may also create creviced pipes due to the uneven expansion and contraction of the pipes. Hence, you may have to change a whole pipe in this kind of annoying situation. Furthermore, always be careful with the hair and piece of clothes you drop unwittingly in your bathroom, especially when the sink runs slowly. Joint weakening might be one of the simplest reasons that cause pump leakage. Some joints of pipes will naturally get loose after ages. That is why a professional wrench needs to tighten them from time to time.
