Signs of a Burst Pipe

You may have a burst pipe if you are experiencing some of the common problems below.

Experiencing some of the signs above? Time to call an emergency plumber before it gets worse.

What Causes a Water Pipe to Burst?

See below for some of the main causes for a burst pipe. Be sure to note that these are only some possible causes for your burst pipe and every situation is unique. We advise to contact an emergency plumber like Guardian Plumbing to investigate the situation and carry out the appropriate actions to resolve your burst pipe problem.

Tree Roots

Tree roots will wreak havoc on your plumbing system, growing rapidly and silently around your pipes. Eventually, the pressure will be far beyond your pipe’s threshold, causing them to burst.

Damaged or Weak Pipes

Nothing (unfortunately) lasts forever. Hence over time, your pipes may corrode, become weakened or become structurally compromised. The walls of the pipes may not be able to handle the pressure of the water and cracks may begin to form. From here, water will begin seeping through the cracks, causing a burst pipe.

If you are experiencing a burst pipe due to any of the causes above, it is strongly recommended that you call a professional burst pipe plumber like Guardian Plumbing to tackle the situation immediately. Contact us today.

What Damage Can Be Caused by Burst Pipes?

It’s integral that you get your burst pipe inspected before it gets worse. But what really are the consequences of leaving a burst pipe for too long besides the expensive water bill?

Flooding

If you are experiencing dark or wet patches in your ceilings or walls, this is a tell-tale sign that water is seeping through. Eventually, the structural integrity of your home will be unable to withstand large amounts of water, causing the structures to give way and flood your home. Once your home floods, it’s a quick race to move your electricals and furniture away from the affected areas before your goods are damaged permanently.

Mould Growth

A silent killer in any residential or commercial property. Damp areas are a breeding ground for mould and bacteria. Besides the unpleasant sight of mould inside of your property, it can pose severe respiratory concerns for you, your family and/or staff members.
