Why Is There Water Under My Cabinet?

You open up the cabinet under your sink and are greeted by an unsightly puddle of water that you didn’t know was there. This area below your sink should not be somewhere you expect to find water, although it is one area where spotting water isn’t all that uncommon. This is usually indicative of a problem with your drain or some other plumbing equipment located in this under-sink area. Here are a few of the most common reasons why this can happen.

Leak in Your Sink Drain

Arguably the most common reason you’ll find water beneath your sink is that your drain has a leak in it. Shifting plumbing lines, worn-out connections, or even pipe corrosion could cause fractures in the plumbing lines beneath your sink, which cause water that flows down your drain to slowly and steadily leak out.

One of the things that actually encourages this is clogs in your sink. When a clog forms, water can’t pass through the drain, which means it sits stagnant in your plumbing lines. When enough water flows in, it could even create pressure in your plumbing that puts further stress on the pipes themselves. As a result, small fractures or gaps form and small leaks occur that allow a small amount of water that flows down the drain to leak out. This is just another reason why chemical clog removers are so detrimental to the health of your plumbing system.

Leak in Your R/O System

Many homes have a reverse osmosis water filtration system located in their kitchen. They’re generally fairly inexpensive, and can provide you with clean, fresh drinking water while requiring very little maintenance or attention. But that being said they can wear out and even the slightest of leaks can cause water to pour out into your cabinet. The most common places to check for leaks in your reverse osmosis system is in the hoses or lines which connect the system to the faucet on your sink or over to your ice maker in or refrigerator water dispenser.

Leak in Your Faucet Connection

Your kitchen faucet has to connect to the main plumbing lines in your home somewhere, and if this connection isn’t solid, leaks can occur. A worn-out seal, poor connection, rusted hose, old valve, or one of plenty of other issues could cause everything from a slow drip to even a minor trickle of water which leave water in your cabinet space that could cause mold and mildew as well as cabinet damage.
