WHAT CAUSES BURST PIPES?
It’s important to have a working knowledge of how pipework can burst. The most common reasons are temperature changes, which can cause pipes to be more brittle and even more vulnerable to breakage. Old pipes are also a common cause of piping failures, since they are more likely to have weak points in their joints, which tend to crack and then rupture from the pressure of water flowing through them.
It’s also worth noting that pipes bursting can be a risk to the environment, if they are causing contamination of water supplies or leaking into the ground. It’s important to know the signs of a burst pipe so you can get it fixed quickly, before it becomes a bigger problem!
Water damage can happen so quickly and easily, and nobody wants to suffer from a leak that can cause major damage to their home.
