3 Common Causes of Burst Pipes

Broken pipes can drive up the costs of repairs if they aren’t fixed immediately. There are several reasons a pipe may burst. Below are some of the most common reasons and how you can prevent them from causing water damage in your home.  

1. Freezing

Freezing

Temperatures below freezing can freeze the water in your pipes, causing them to expand. As it expands more, pressure builds up inside the pipes, which causes cracks or a burst. 

Avoid freezing pipes by:

  • Eliminate window and door drafts
  • Keep the heat on
  • Insulate exposed pipes
  • Make sure faucets have a steady drip

2. Old/Outdated Plumbing

Outdated Pipe

Your plumbing systems components are not made to last forever. Older pipes can and will deteriorate over time, becoming weak and susceptible to high water pressure. Eventually, this can lead to a burst. 

If you know your plumbing is outdated, it’s time to call a local plumbing professional. They can assess the lifespan of your pipes and suggest replacements.

3. Corrosion

Corrosion

There’s not much you can do about preventing corrosion in your plumbing system. Corrosion severely weakens pipes and can cause clogs. 

Common causes of corrosion:

  • Water acidity
  • Mineral buildup
  • High water temperature
  • High water pressure
