Depending on the size and the location of the leak, it can be easy to miss or ignore. There are a few general small signs that you can keep an eye out for. If you notice any of the following during an inspection of your sink faucets, call Pristine Plumbing today at (714) 397-5954.

Since the plumbing systems in Rancho Santa Margarita homes and businesses are so complex, there are many different things that can cause sink faucets or pipes to leak. General “wear and tear” tends to be the number one most common reason that leads to leaks. If the plumbing in your home or business is over 10 years old, and has not been received routine maintenance and drain cleaning services, your risk of leaks starts becoming pretty high.

Common Causes of Leaky Pipes
Kitchens and bathrooms are very high traffic areas in any Rancho Santa Margarita home. They are used frequently by everyone in the household. They are also the most common areas for plumbing issues in the home as a result. We recommend all home and business owners inspect their plumbing systems every 6 months to look for signs of damage or leaks. Routine professional inspection to sink faucets, and drain cleaning services should be scheduled and completed every 2 to 3 years. This will help to spot any issues that could be occurring, repair them preventing further damage, and higher water bills.
Kitchen – Kitchen sinks are used a whole lot and are very important in helping us cook and clean. Kitchen faucets tend to wear down faster than any other faucet due to the high use and abuse they endure. Pristine Plumbing can help with any dripping faucet, strange noises or smells coming from faucets or pipes, water pooling around or under the sink, damage grout or sealant, mineral or rust build up.
Bathroom – Bathrooms have multiple sources of water that are used very frequently. Sink faucets, showe head, tub spout, toilet. There is a lot of water going on in our bathrooms. Due to the high moisture generated in bathrooms, leaks and water pooling can sometimes be harder to notice or detect. If you notice water constantly around the base of the toilet, tub, or sink, you might want to call Pristine Plumbing sooner than later.
Garage and Laundry Rooms – It is very common to have sinks and sink faucets in Rancho Santa Margarita garages and laundry rooms. These rooms often house water heaters as well. Just because these rooms of your home can be out of sight and out of mind, does not mean they should not be included in routine inspections. Check on your laundry appliances and water heater every couple of months to ensure they are in good working order, and not leaking or showing signs of damage. If you notice water in your Rancho Santa Margarita home or business is slow to warm or not getting hot at all, if there is water dampness or signs of water damage around the water heater, or if you hear strange sounds, dripping noises, or smells coming from around the area of your water heater or washer call Pristine Plumbing immediately.
