Impact of a Faulty Water Line
A water line that is broken, leaking or even slightly ruptured can compromise the health of everyone inside a home. That is why it is extremely important to take care of this problem. Here is a look at the impacts a bad water line can have on a home and everyone inside of it.
- Lower Air Quality – When there are problems with a water line, the cracks allow moisture to make its way into the walls and foundation of a home. This leads to the buildup of bacteria and fungi which develops into mold. Traces of this type of indoor pollution is not always noticeable to all homeowners, but it can lead to infections thereby endangering everyone within a home.
- Lower Quality of Water – Rust and corrosion from pipes can eventually mix with the water in the supply line. That can lead to the accumulation of mildew and mold, which can be harmful when mixed with drinking water. Contamination of water when it is mixed with sewage water is extremely dangerous and can induce a variety of problems.
