Water Damage: Children love to play with water and may unintentionally leave the taps open and the water running. This does have the potential to cause minor flooding around the house which could lead to water damage. Even a slow drip can lead to hazardous damage. Also, tap with water left running can lead to huge water bills
Broken Pipes and Fixtures: When kids play around the house, they can come in contact with various plumbing fixtures and pipes. If they are not careful, these pipes and fixtures may break leading to various plumbing issues around the home. Even if children are careful around the house, they may end up causing damage to the fixtures while using them. Kids can put unnecessary pressure on the fixtures during regular use, that may cause them to break
