What Could Cause a Pipe to Burst?
Not all burst pipes are the same. However, there are a few common problems that can cause your pipes to burst.
If you’re having work done to your home, someone might have hit a pipe, causing it to burst open. Some pipes are so sensitive and could burst from a slight knock.
If you live in an old home, your pipes may be worn out. If you have cast iron, clay, galvanized or copper, you should know that they grow thinner over the years, causing them to wear out. Even the slightest build-up of pressure can be the reason for the sudden burst.
You may not know this, but even your pipes get dirty. As time goes on, dirt and minerals may collect in your pipes, blocking the way for water to flow. The obstructions increase the pressure in your pipes. We also caution householders against using a plunger too often, as this can increase the pressure in your pipes.
Your trees could be planning an attack on your plumbing system. That is a sentence you never thought you would hear. Naturally, trees need moisture to survive, and an ideal place to find this is in your pipes. Over time, the trees can choke your plumbing system and damage your pipes. This can cause a blockage and be just the thing that leads to your pipes busting open.
Extreme freezing temperatures and strong winds can weaken the integrity of your pipes, causing them to burst.
Indications That You Have a Burst Pipe
Most times, it’s easy to notice when your pipes are broken. If water is flooding through your home or yard, there is no doubt that you have a burst pipe. However, it could also be more subtle. Here are a few things to keep an eye on.
Increased Water Bills
If your water bill has drastically increased, there may be a leak coming from a damaged pipe.
Decreased Water Pressure
If there are frequent changes in your water pressure when you use your basin or kitchen sink, it means that one of your pipes is broken. It’s essential to call a plumber immediately because these changes in pressure can put more strain on your pipes and cause more damage.
If your water is a murky brown color, it means that your pipes are rusted and need immediate attention. This could also be a sign that your water is contaminated with bacteria.
The Sound of Water
If you hear water running even though all your faucets are closed, this is a clear sign that you have a burst or leaking pipe.
If you notice a sulfuric smell around your plumbing system, your pipes may be leaking sewage. Call your plumbing company immediately as this can be a danger to you and your family.
Burst Pipe Repair
A burst pipe can cause severe damage to your property. It can cause mold and other fungal species to grow on your floors and walls. It may also cause the paint to chip off your walls. Not to mention all the damage it can cause to your furniture and appliances. If you have wooden floors, a burst pipe can cause terrible damage to them and cause rotting.
It’s important to call for immediate plumbing attention if you suspect that one of your pipes has burst or even has a small leak.
Prevention is better than cure. You can prevent a burst pipe by having a plumber inspect your plumbing systems regularly. In this way, they will be able to spot damaged pipes before it has the opportunity to burst.
