What causes leaking and burst pipes?
Burst pipes are considered to be among the top plumbing issues that need to be addressed immediately. They are a common problem in cold weather areas. Freezing water and expansion in the pipelines often leads to leaks and potential bursts.
Water pressure issues can also cause pipes to burst. If a significant increase in the water pressure is observed in a plumbing system, the plumbing fixture may fail or cause a rupture or burst.
Corrosion is another leading cause of leaks and burst in pipe systems. The majority of pipes can last for decades, offering reliable service. However, in some cases, not all pipes last indefinitely. Years of corrosion can lead to failures and ruptures, causing pipes to burst or leak.
Poor installation is another cause of faulty leaks and burst in pipe systems. It is essential to hire a professional and licenced plumber to install your water, drainage, and HVAC systems at home or establishment. Poor soldering, substandard materials, and rushed work can often lead to plumbing emergencies in the future.
How to prevent leaking and burst pipes
Leaks and bursts in pipes can be prevented. You can maximise your pipelines’ service by practicing several precautionary and maintenance measures in your plumbing systems.
One of the preventive measures is to consider the amount of pressure that your pipeline receives. It should not exceed 60 psi for over a long period to avoid hammering your pipelines with water. These movements often trigger pipe movements and shifts due to water pressure and leaks. Adding a water pressure reader in your pipeline system to check that it never goes above 80 psi can help prevent leaks and bursts to your waterline.
Installing a water softener can also help prevent leaks and bursts in your pipes. Hard water has high mineral content and may cause your pipes to corrode. Build up of minerals inside your pipelines can also trigger leaks or ruptures in your plumbing system. Removing excess minerals from the water that enters your water systems can reduce the possibilities of leaks and burst pipes.
Winter brings a more significant challenge to your water pipes. Freezing water in your pipelines may cause them to burst. It would be ideal to disconnect, drain, and store your garden hoses to prevent spigots from freezing and bursting. An insulated plumbing system is also suitable for not heated areas in your homes or in places where winter can be freezing. Add insulation to the water lines located in crawl spaces, your attic, the garage, under the kitchen, your bathroom sinks and the basement, areas that are not heated in your home, to prevent frozen pipes.
