Different Causes Of Broken Pipes

Broken pipes can cause significant damage and costly repairs for both residential and commercial properties. Therefore, it's essential to understand the common causes of broken pipes to take preventative measures and avoid potential hazards. Here are three main reasons why pipes may break:

Age and Wear and Tear

Pipes, just like any other material, have a lifespan and can deteriorate over time due to age and wear and tear. This can cause them to develop cracks, leaks, and corrosion, which may eventually lead to failure. Over the years, the pipes can experience considerable stress, leading to reduced water flow, low water pressure, or complete blockages. Regular inspections of your plumbing system by a professional are essential to identify any potential issues and make repairs before they become more serious, preventing costly and time-consuming repairs.

Extreme Temperatures

Extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, can cause pipes to become damaged. In cold weather, water inside pipes can freeze, expanding and putting pressure on the pipes, causing them to crack or burst. The expansion of water can be powerful enough to cause the pipe to burst, leading to water damage and expensive repairs. In hot weather, pipes can expand and contract, causing stress on the joints and fittings, leading to leaks or cracks. It's crucial to properly insulate pipes and ensure they are installed correctly to prevent temperature-related damage, avoiding unnecessary repair costs.

External Factors

Unfortunate external factors such as intrusive tree roots, careless construction activity, or even ground movement can also cause pipes to become broken. Tree roots can grow into pipes, causing blockages and damage, while construction activity or ground movement can cause pipes to shift, crack, or collapse. The pipes can also corrode over time due to soil acidity, making them more susceptible to external damage. Identifying and addressing any potential external factors that could damage pipes before they cause major problems is essential. Regular maintenance, including drain cleaning and jet blasting, can help to prevent blockages and buildup, extending the lifespan of your pipes and minimising the need for costly repairs.

What To Do Before We Repair Your Pipes

1. Turn off the Water Supply

The first step is to turn off the main water supply to the affected area. This will prevent any additional water from flowing into the damaged pipe and causing further damage.

2. Identify the Affected Area

Identify the location of the broken pipe and mark the area. This will make it easier for the plumber to locate and repair the damaged section.

3. Clear the Area

Clear the area around the broken pipe of any furniture, appliances, or other items that may be in the way. This will provide the plumber with more space to work and reduce the risk of damage to your belongings.

4. Provide Access to the Affected Area

Ensure that the plumber has easy access to the affected area. This may involve removing a ceiling panel or cutting into a wall to reach the damaged pipe.

5. Protect Your Belongings

Cover any remaining furniture or appliances in the room with plastic sheeting or drop cloths. This will protect them from dust and debris that may be created during the repair process.

6. Be Available During the Repair

It's important to be available during the repair process in case the plumber needs to ask you any questions or provide updates on the progress of the repair.
