Common Causes for Burst Pipes

Understanding the common causes of burst pipes can help you identify potential risks and take preventive measures to avoid major plumbing disasters. Here are some of the most frequent causes of burst pipes:

  • Extreme Cold Weather Conditions
    One of the leading causes of burst pipes, especially in colder climates, is freezing temperatures. When water inside a pipe freezes, it expands, putting immense pressure on the walls of the pipe.If the pressure becomes too great, the pipe will rupture. Properly insulating your home’s plumbing system can help prevent this.
  • Corrosion and Age
    Older pipes made from metal are susceptible to corrosion over time. As pipes corrode, their walls weaken, making them more likely to burst under normal circumstances.Homes or properties with older plumbing systems should consider periodic inspections to assess the condition of pipes and replace any that show significant signs of wear.
  • High Water Pressure
    Excessive water pressure is a less known yet equally damaging cause of burst pipes.While pipes are designed to withstand a certain pressure level, constant high pressure can lead to fatigue and eventual failure.Installing a pressure regulator can help maintain a safe pressure level in your plumbing system.

Signs You May Have A Burst or Leaking Pipe

  • Unexpected Increase in Your Water Bill
    An unexplained spike in your water bill might suggest a leak. If you haven’t changed your water usage habits but see a significant increase in cost, a burst pipe may be the issue.
  • Sudden Drop in Water Pressure
    A noticeable decrease in water pressure throughout your home can indicate water leaking from a burst pipe somewhere in your system. If turning on faucets or showers yields only a trickle, it’s time to investigate further.
  • Unusual Noises in Plumbing
    Dripping, whistling, or banging from within your walls or floors can signal a burst pipe. These noises may occur because water is escaping the pipe under pressure and impacting the surrounding materials.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT BURST PIPES

Water pipes burst due to cold or freezing temperatures, age corrosion, high water pressure, and physical damage. Each cause weakens the pipe differently. This pressure builds up in your pipes, causing them to expand until they eventually burst.

Immediately shut off the main water supply to minimise water damage. If the water has spread near outlets or appliances, avoid using electrical devices until help arrives.

Regular maintenance is key. Ensure your pipes are properly insulated against cold, monitor water pressure to avoid it being too high, and replace old or corroded pipes. Additionally, having regular inspections by a professional plumber can help detect potential problems early.

Yes. Signs of an unseen burst pipe include a significant drop in water pressure, strange noises from within the plumbing, unexpected increases in your water bill, and water marks or mould on walls, ceilings, or floors.
