What causes burst pipes?
Burst pipes can be caused by a number of reasons including the age of your pipework, incorrect installation, damage from tree roots or other foreign objects, rust and rodents but the most common cause of a burst pipe is due to pressure within the pipes. When water within your pipes gets close to freezing your pipes will expand creating increased pressure.
What are the signs of a burst pipe?
In many cases you will realise you have a burst pipe due to the torrent of water cascading into your property but there are some instances of burst or leaking pipes which can go unnoticed for some time. As our pipes are hidden in our walls, ceilings and underneath our homes it can take time for the pooling water to become noticed. Signs to look out for include;
- Higher than average water bills for no reason
- Damp patches on your walls, floors or ceilings
- Mould forming on your walls, ceilings or floors
- Pooling patches of water
- Faulty electrical fittings
- Cracks in your walls

If you are suspect that you may have a leaking or burst pipe on your property there is a simple test that you can do. Just turn off all of your taps and fixtures, and then write down the numbers showing in your meter box. 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.
