When a pipe bursts in your home, you need fast action to prevent water from flooding and damaging your property. Burst pipes are not only a problem for older plumbing systems; they can happen without warning to any home.
What Causes Burst Pipes?
There are numerous issues that contribute to a burst pipe. Here are some of the most common causes:
Freezing: Because we live in a warm climate, your pipes may not be insulated. Every year when cold snaps occur, we get a slew of calls due to uninsulated pipes that freeze and burst. As the water inside the pipes turns to ice, it expands, putting immense pressure on the pipe walls. Eventually, the pipes cannot handle it any longer and they rupture.
Chemical Drain Cleaners: Store-bought chemical drain cleaners are hard on the pipes. The harsh chemicals corrode the pipe wall, causing weak spots that are prone to bursting.
Clogs: The pressure built up behind a clogged toilet or drain is also enough to cause a pipe to burst.
Chlorine: Like most municipalities, Charlotte purifies the drinking water with chlorine. Chlorinated water weakens certain types of pipes, causing breakage or cracking. Pipe can fail when exposed to chlorine within the water, or over exposure to sunlight before installation and any fittings under stress, or poorly glued.
Exposure to Sunlight: Overexposure to the sun can cause pipes to weaken
Stress or Improper Gluing of Fittings: If your plumbing fittings are under stress due to improper installation or support of pipes or due to structural changes (including the settling of the house or erosion of the earth under and around the foundation of your home), the stress can cause pipes to break or crack.
High Water Pressure: Charlotte is known for high water pressure issues. High water pressure wears on pipes and fittings, causing premature breakage.
