Burst pipes. This is particularly prevalent during winter as a result of freezing temperature.

Hot water tank failure. Another item in your plumbing system that should be examine on a regular basis. As you might already know, there are multiple ways that hot water heaters can leak.

If the water is spraying out from pipes, there could be a leak where the pipes soldered or a rusted out fitting that is near the hot water.
