When a water line inside your home breaks, it usually doesn’t take long to know it. Fittings and connections in supply lines are the most common culprit in these events, as are things like nails from construction projects or vibrating pipes. Not every leak is that obvious to find and needs to be troubleshot as well.
There are minor leaks and those that are underground, either under a home’s foundation or between the street or well and the house. What causes these particular leaks? They are typically caused by deterioration from age or that occur because the house or the ground is settling. In rare cases, the break is caused by freezing.
