What usually causes a water leak?
The most common types of leak usually occur at exit points, where the water is actually physically emerging from the pipes, and the pipework immediately leading up to it has more pressure. Examples of this include sinks, toilets or drains. The causes are varied, and usually fairly straightforward.
One of the most common causes can often be just a deterioration of the pipes, particularly if the building is older and the pipework has been in place for a long time.
Other reasons can be a sudden spike in temperature can damage the structural integrity of the pipes, as well as something clogging the pipework or there are extremely high amounts of pressure in the water.
There have also been instances of bad workmanship leading to leaks in pipes and further need to get your water leak fixed and pipes repaired, although that is far less of a likely cause.
