What Causes Burst Pipes?

We tend to consider plumbing pipes to be infallible, but over time they will weaken, split and burst if they aren’t maintained. General ageing is the main reason that the surface of a pipe will become thinner and weaken to the point of bursting. Ageing, plus the consistent pressure of the water flowing through the pipe, is enough to cause it to rupture. In some cases, tree roots may end up causing damage to the pipe. The roots will grow toward the nearest water source, and if that source happens to be an underground pipe, they can crowd the pipe and cause it to split open.

Risks of a Pipe Bursting on Your Property

When a pipe bursts on your property, water damage and safety issues are usually top of mind. Depending on where the pipe fractures, you may end up with water inside the main living area, behind walls, under floors or under the ground outside. Naturally, this can cause massive amounts of damage to the structure of your home, the fixtures inside the house or the ground around the property. The flow of water into parts of your home may be a safety hazard, and standing water can create situations where mould, bacteria and pathogens flourish.

Taking Quick Action is Key

The key to minimising damage after a burst pipe is to take action quickly and definitively as soon as you notice what has happened. It is wise to keep the number of a local plumbing expert close at hand, so an engineer can be dispatched as quickly as possible. The sooner an expert is on the scene, the sooner any flooding or water damage will be under control.
