What Causes a Pipe to Leak?

Do you have a leaking pipe but can’t figure out the cause? Our engineers can assess and fix your leak and will find a long-term solution to prevent future problems. Some of the most common causes of leaking pipes include unregulated water pressure, fluctuating temperatures, damaged joints or broken seals.

Clogged Pipe

If you leave a blockage for too long, it will build up until there is nowhere for the wastewater to pass through when you use your dishwasher, take a shower or flush the toilet. Unfortunately, the water has to go somewhere, which means the pressure inside your pipe will build up until it inevitably bursts and causes a leak.

Excessive Water Pressure

If your water pressure is too high, pipes can crack and leak. If you don’t yet have a leak but notice your water pressure shifting, you should call us to investigate and save you more trouble at a later date.

Change in Temperature

As the seasons change, so does the temperature within your pipes. In winter, pipes regularly burst due to freezing conditions. When pipes freeze, they often contract, and when water runs through them, the expansion can lead to leaks.

Pipe Corrosion or Damage

If your pipes are getting old and rusty, damage or corrosion to your pipes is a leading cause of leaks, particularly in properties with an irregular or non-existent maintenance schedule.

During installation, seals are placed around all water connectors, but if your pipework was installed a long time ago, these seals might have succumbed to wear and tear. If you notice puddles near your toilet, dishwasher or other appliance, you may have a broken seal.

Paul P

The Drain Doctor operative, Dan Hayler was extremely good. He took time to explain the situation and did a fantastic job of solving our problem. He is knowledgeable and courteous. I would highly recommend him and this company. Thank you for an excellent service.

Mandy Stuttard

Seriously brilliant company. Anna was so helpful and great on the phone in the booking. Clear job pricing, rather than hourly charges. We have had two other plumbers out to solve this issue without success. They used a camera to find the blockage which was a ceramic piece from previous building work. Can't recommend them enough!

Kathy Pavid

Very pleased with Drain Doctor and operator Dan. Had concerns about partial sewer main blockage and possible sewer pipe misalignment. Camera survey carried out first to identify issues, then complete high pressure clean, then follow up camera survey. First class professional and friendly service - would most certainly use again.

Roy Tubbs

Great service from Anna and her team. Dan carried out the work needed and was polite, friendly and explained what needed to be done.

Tracey Ridgers

Dan turned up within an hour even though it wasn't an emergency. He was professional and very helpful and even identified a hidden chamber that was also blocked. Great quality for a very reasonable price.

Nick Armitage

Called this morning for plumbing emergency. Attended within half an hour and problem fixed. Would highly recommend.

Katie Crawford

Can't recommend Graham Forbes and Drain Doctor enough! 3 hours graft and skilled use of some pretty scary high pressure equipment, camera tech, to break a fiendishly located fat and soap berg in the corner of our kitchen pipe work.

Andy & Katy Travers

Really quick service, called on a Sunday morning, with us within an hour with the job done quickly. I hope not to need my drains sorted again, but if I do, I'll be calling Scott!
