Common Sources of Water Leaks
Plumbing – Plumbing is usually hidden in walls and floors, which are easily damaged by water. Metal plumbing can corrode or break, and plastic plumbing can get brittle with age. And when water freezes, it can even crack steel pipe. Whether it’s clean source water or dirty wastewater, a broken pipe can do a lot of damage in a hurry.
Dishwashers – A leaking door seal can spill water onto the floor. Or the supply and wastewater hoses could fail. A leak can do more than just curl your linoleum — it can also damage the floor and cabinets around it.
Refrigerator/ice maker – These are most welcome on a hot day! But icemakers have a surprisingly high failure rate. If yours breaks, it might mean lukewarm lemonade, or it might mean a wet moldy floor under the fridge.
Washing machines – Clothes washers hook into your plumbing with one hose for hot water and one for cold. These hoses can age, crack, and spray like a fountain. Some washers have gaskets that can fail, or wash tubs that can break and spill water.
Water heater – These usually look like a tall metal cylinder near your main water line. Some use electricity, some use gas. A failure could cause water damage, but it could also cause electrical or fire problems as well. Luckily, Disaster Doctors can fix both water and fire damage if you need it!
Reverse osmosis – These act like filters to remove contaminants from your drinking water. They’re typically installed where you use water the most, like under a kitchen sink. A failure could allow contaminants into your drinking water, or it could soak everything around it.
Sinks & Toilets – A sink failure could be a dripping faucet or a leak in the drain pipe. A toilet could fail by leaking from the supply hose or the tank. Or worse, you could have a waste-side leak from either (which is about as bad as it sounds).
HVAC – HVAC units can leak as a result of neglect, improper maintenance or a malfunctioning component in the system.
