The essence of pipe upgrades, replacements and relining is to prevent leaks. Leaks are a menace that constantly needs our attention. In fact, most of our plumbing problems begin with a small leak that took long to detect.
In the US at large, the Environmental Protection Agency, EPA estimates that about 10% of homes in the US experience leaks that waste over 90 gallons of water per day. This can be solved by effective piping.
Visible leaks can be detected by certain signs such as moisture marks and water on a wall. Since most leaks occur beneath floorboards and walls, it may take time to notice. However, monitoring spikes in water meter reading or even changing meter reading while there is no running water may indicate a leaking pipe.
