Understanding the Causes of Burst Pipes

Burst pipes can be attributed to several factors. Freezing temperatures can cause water inside pipes to freeze and expand, exerting pressure and leading to a rupture. Corrosion over time, especially in older homes, can weaken pipe integrity, making them susceptible to bursts. Additionally, external factors like tree root intrusion or ground movement can damage pipes. High water pressure, clogs, or blockages can also strain the pipes, culminating in bursts. Regular maintenance and inspections can preemptively identify and rectify potential vulnerabilities.
