There are three categories of water. Category one is clean and sanitary drinking water. It may come from your faucets or a water filter. Category two is unclean water that usually comes from your washing machine, shower, kitchen and bathroom sinks and dishwasher. This water can cause illness in humans if it is ingested. Category three is highly unsanitary water that comes from your toilet and sewer pipes and can cause serious illness if ingested by humans. It is extremely unhygienic even to touch category three water. Any water from a toilet, even if it is clear, is considered category three.
When potable water spills or leaks from a pipe, it must be dried immediately. Water that is left standing will gradually turn into category three water. Microbes from the environment will contaminant the water and fecal matter from animals can make it seriously unsanitary. The mold, mildew and fungi that begin to develop in category three water release spores into the atmosphere that pollute the indoor air. These pathogens can cause respiratory problems for anyone who has allergies or asthma and eventually even for healthy people.
The main reason these issues are so dangerous and require our water pipe leak detection San Diego team is because they can exist for months without you realizing it. You may not even connect your overall health to a damp place in your home.
Why Pipes Leak
There are several reasons why home plumbing may develop leaks. Even excellent drinking water can have a corrosive effect on pipes. The factors that may contribute to pipe corrosion are:
- The water’s pH
- The water’s temperature
- The water pressure
- The water chemistry, including the amount of oxygen
Clogged drains and toilets can cause leaks. If you call for our pipe repair San Diego experts as soon as leaks are detected, they can usually be fixed before serious damage is done.
Pipes also shift due to earthquakes, soggy soil and the natural settling of your house. These are most often the unseen leaks that are not detected until they have caused some damage. Our underground water leak detection San Diego team uses the latest technology to find leaks that are not apparent.
Tree roots that invade pipes are another major cause of leaks. Tiny cracks form in pipes and leak water to which small roots are attracted. They gradually fill the pipe with roots. The roots can be removed with our equipment, or, if necessary, our pipe replacement San Diego crew will install new pipes.
