What causes a burst pipe?
If you’re wondering how this could have come about, here are some chief causes behind burst pipes to look out for in the future:
- Corrosion- This is inevitable as the years pass.
- An increase in water pressure- The average pressure in most homes is 30-50 psi. Attach a pressure gauge to a sink spout and turn on the faucet- if the water pressure if higher than the average, call a plumber to reduce it.
- Movement of pipes that aren’t secured- With the pipes clanging back and forth each time water is switched on and off, the joints eventually weaken and give way.
- Cold weather- This gives way to water freezing in the pipes and a build-up of pressure.
