If you’re not exactly sure what the issue is, still give us a call as we also provide drain repairs and general plumbing and maintenance.
Causes of burst pipes
Water pipes burst for various reasons. These include:
• General wear and tear – most pipes weaken with age and become rusty and corroded. Eventually, they can’t withstand water pressure any more.
• Misuse – uncontrolled levels of water pressure or force are used.
• Blockages and clogging by large, undetected objects in the pipes.
• Tree roots force their way into the pipes.
• Renovation work goes wrong.
• Garden and yard work.
• Freezing temperatures – when water freezes it expands and this can cause pipes to burst.
