What Causes Burst Pipes ?

The causes of burst pipes can vary, yet the necessity for regular maintenance stands as a testament to preventing such incidents. At Right Now Plumbing Adelaide, we cannot stress enough the importance of routine checks to forestall major plumbing catastrophes down the track.

Here’s a closer look at the common culprits behind pipe bursts and how our maintenance services can help avert disaster:

  • Sub-zero Temperatures: In the chill of winter, pipes can freeze, and the expansion of ice can place immense pressure on the pipework. This pressure can reach a critical point where pipes rupture, leading to severe water damage.
  • Blockages: Debris and sediment build-up can lead to obstructions within the pipes, where the escalating pressure from the blockage can compromise the pipe’s integrity, eventually leading to a burst.
  • Aged Hot Water Systems: Over time, water pipes, particularly within hot water systems, can deteriorate, corrode, or weaken, rendering them susceptible to breaks and splits.
  • Excessive Water Pressure: While robust water pressure is desirable for an invigorating shower experience, consistently high pressure can tax your plumbing infrastructure, resulting in ruptures.

At Right Now Plumbing Adelaide, we offer meticulous maintenance services to inspect and identify early signs of wear, blockages, and pressure issues, ensuring that your pipes and hot water systems continue to function smoothly without the interruption of unexpected bursts.

After approximately 10-15 minutes check the meter box numbers again (make sure you haven’t used any water, or flushed the toilet during this time!) if the numbers have increased then this is a good indication there is a water leak on your property.
