Water Damage from Sinks

Water Damage from Sinks
• Water damage from sinks averaged more than $7,000.00 per incident
• Forty-four percent (44%) of these incidents were attributed to defective plumbing supply lines.
Loss Prevention and Maintenance Tips:
• Inspect plumbing under sinks every six months
• Make sure connections are tight and there is no indication of corrosion on the pipes.
• Check for kinks in copper or plastic pipes. Kinks may develop over time to pinhole leaks.
• Locate all water shut off valves inside of the house, as well as the main shut off typically located on the outside of the residence.
• Replace the valves if necessary.
