What causes burst pipes?
Burst pipes can be disastrous! While some of the causes of bursting pipes can be reduced dramatically by taking proper care of your plumbing systems and ensuring that they receive routine inspections and timely repairs, other issues can arise quite unexpectedly. When temperatures drop during the colder months of the year and your pipes are not adequately insulated or covered, the water rushing through them can freeze, this causes the pipes to expand and could very well lead to a burst.
Another common reason why pipes rupture is age. Older systems can disintegrate, fittings will wear down, and pipes could eventually break open, which is why it is important to have them inspected and replaced when necessary. Mineral deposits and an accumulation of other harmful materials over time can cause a buildup of pressure that will ultimately result in a burst. Unanticipated trauma to your pipes, whether from falling debris, invasive tree roots, shifting ground, or intense vibrations can additionally lead to dreadful consequences. When you find yourself in the middle of a burst, the plumbing experts at Daniels Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC are always available to provide an emergency burst pipe repair to ensure that your property and loved ones are safe.
How can you prevent burst pipes?
Now that you know what could cause a pipe to rupture within your property, it’s important to know what to do for burst pipe prevention. Become absolutely certain that your pipes are properly insulated during colder weather, you can even use a specially designed heat wrap made for piping to help to avoid a potential burst. If you are having construction done within your property or directly outside of it, avoid excessive vibrations that could jostle the pipes. Also, when planting trees in your yard make sure you are fully aware of where your piping system runs so you are able to place them a safe distance from those areas.
