What Causes A Pipe To Burst?
The most common cause for a burst pipe is quite simply its age. Years of water running through it at high-pressure can result in considerable wear and tear. Galvanized pipes are also more prone to rust, which will significantly weaken them. Another relatively common cause for a burst pipe is damage resulting from an accident. This can either be accidentally striking it while moving objects in your basement or a nail driven into the wall and piercing a pipe enclosed within.
Burst Pipe Prevention
The best way to avoid that kind of catastrophic event in your home is to have your pipes periodically inspected by a trained professional. This is particularly advisable if the plumbing in your home is aging or if galvanized pipes are present. The experts at Drain Busters Plumbing & Rooter can inspect the state of your pipes and if a breakage appears to be imminent, we can quickly replace the failing section of pipe before tragedy strikes.
