What are the common causes of burst pipes?
The most common cause of burst pipe is freezing. Metal pipes are known to freeze very often mainly because they expand from ice in the pipes. Building pressure caused by ice can cause a burst pipe. Pipes that are exposed to the cold weather are more vulnerable to freezing.
Additionally, old and damaged pipes can burst when their seals age and become worn. Corrosion on metal pipes will weaken the walls and result in a burst pipe because of the pressure caused by the water. And then there are polybutylene pipes which are made of plastic material were used in construction during the period 1978-1998. These pipes react to chlorine that is present in the water supply, causing the pipe wall to weaken which results in bursting pipe.
Underground pipes can burst if tree or plant roots have been able to enter. Rodents can chew the pipe while trying to find a water source and will chew on the weak spots.
How can you avoid burst pipes?
Burst pipes can result in a lot of irreversible damage. Know that anything you can do to stop a burst pipe from occurring is in your best interest. Since a burst pipe is usually the result of long process of deterioration, early detection and plumbing maintenance is the best way to avoid these problems.
These are the most common signs of pipe deterioration:
- Water can be heard running even if turned off
- Dampness, mould, or water on the walls or ceiling
- Higher water bills.
An important step in keeping your pipe from freezing is to make sure that they are close to the heat source of the property. For example, leaving the doors under the sink open will allow warmth to enter and reach the piping. In places where pipes are exposed to cold air, they can be protected with insulation. Another alternative is applying electric heat tape over the pipes. When the temperature is low enough to cause freezing in pipes, you can open some taps in your property and let the water drip. This is because flowing water will not freeze. The best solution, however, is to have a plumbing expert inspect your property from both the inside and outside. They can target potential problems and give you a full report about your plumbing installations.
What can our experts do to repair your burst pipe?
Our experts use the best tools and procedures to locate the burst pipe and do the needed repairs. When a frozen pipe is the cause of damage, we will first defrost them. If the damage is not so big, this can be repaired with compounds that will seal the pipe.
Bigger bursts will probably need to be replaced. Our plumbers know the correct tools to perfectly secure the new piping to the current pipe. After completing the job, we will test the whole system and do other repairs if needed. We can also insulate your pipe or reroute exposed pipe to prevent any future issues.
