Common Causes of Broken Pipes:
As water is exposed to below-freezing temperatures, it turns into ice. The pressure of the expanding ice causes pipes to break. We recommend annual maintenance before winter to ensure your pipes are ready for extreme cold. If your pipes do freeze and burst, we’re here to help.
Older neighborhoods in our area typically have mature trees that are near water lines. Roots that grow into water lines cause blockages that can lead to serious problems. No matter how strong the pipe is, if a tree root grows around it, it will burst. Annual maintenance such as power rodding or hydro jetting is important to keep pipes clear.
Clogged drains and sewer lines can lead to water pressure accumulating in your pipes, causing ruptures or leaks. Again, annual maintenance such as power rodding or hydro jetting will help keep your pipes clear.
As time goes on, a pipe may burst just because it is too old and worn out. Over the past 50 years, copper has been the most common pipe used in residential and commercial buildings. Copper is rust-resistant and very durable. However, that doesn’t mean it’s completely immune to problems. Formaldehyde and chlorine particles create a buildup that causes corrosion, which eats away at your pipes. This eventually creates leaks that then need repairing. But if repairs aren’t enough, then re-piping is your best option.
