What causes burst pipes?
Freezing temperatures: If the temperatures dip below freezing and you have not taken the proper steps to winterize your plumbing, the water in your pipes exposed to the extreme temperature will freeze. The water expands as it turns to ice, leaving unexposed water flowing between the frozen walls of the pipes. The frozen water and increased water pressure can become too much for your pipes to handle, causing your pipes to burst.
High water pressure: High water pressure exerted on older pipes can also lead them to burst. We recommend installing a pressure limiting valve on your water meter to avoid unnecessary pipe repairs due to water pressure issues.
Severe clogging: When pipes are clogged, significant water pressure is also put on those pipes. Your pipes will burst after the water pressure becomes too much for them to handle.
Rust: Old galvanized pipes will rust and then burst. This problem does not have to come as a surprise, though. If you notice rusty water coming from your tap, this a sure sign that your galvanized pipes are breaking down and will need to be replaced.
To avoid these burst pipe problems, make sure to regularly maintain your plumbing, insulate exposed piping, and properly winterize your home.
What should you do if this problem occurs?
Locate your main water valve and immediately turn it off. This will stop water from gushing out of the pipes, providing temporary relief from flooding until we arrive for repair.
Avoid using any open flame or electric heater to thaw any pipes that have frozen. The sudden thawing can actually cause your pipes to burst.
When we arrive, we will locate the exact area of damage, remove the affected parts, and replace it with new material.
