Common Causes for Pipe Burst
Your plumbing system is an intricate part of your home or business. With pipes and faucets that carry water and remove waste. Here are some some of the common causes of a pipe burst
- Clogs - When there are clogs in the pipes, water pressure can build inside, causing the pipe to shift and burst open.
Homeowner Damage - Property owners might cause accidental damage to piping when renovating their home.
Extreme Weather - When the temperatures drop below freezing levels, the cold water left in pipes can freeze and expand, thus leading to pipe bursts. Exposed pipes are especially at risk of freezing and breaking.
Tree Roots - Tree roots are naturally drawn to moist soil. If piping is set too close to a tree, the roots may grow towards the pipes and eventually break through them.
- Improper Installation - If pipes are not properly installed in the beginning, it can lead to future problems, including pipe bursts.
