What Causes a Burst Pipe?

A burst pipe is a relatively common issue. Sometimes, they can burst without warning, leaving you unprepared to deal with the aftermath. Your pipes are very durable, but experiencing a burst one is not an issue for an amateur to handle. Here are some common causes:

  • Frozen pipes: This is one of the most common causes. When water freezes in them, it causes your pipes to expand so much so that it breaks the pipe.
  • Old pipes: Certain pipe materials are more vulnerable to bursting than others. Older homes will have pipe materials that are prone to bursting. Regardless of the material, it can happen to aged plumbing systems.
  • Outside pressure: Another common cause is shifting soil, tree roots, or natural disasters that can cause your system to move around.
  • High water pressure: While this is less common, excessive water pressure can cause a burst pipe. Proper installation and set-up can prevent issues with this.

How to Prevent a Burst Pipe

There are several steps you can take to keep your pipes intact. Proper use can keep your pipes from bursting.

  • Keep water flowing: Leaving your pipes with a small amount of water flowing through can prevent them from becoming frozen.
  • Keep your house warm: Keeping your house warm means that pipes behind your walls and under your floors are likely to stay warm too.
  • Leave cabinets open: In places like the kitchen and bathroom, leaving your cabinets open will allow for the warm air in your home to reach the exposed pipes, keeping them from freezing.
  • Disconnect your hose: If water can’t drain from your hose bib and you’ll need to schedule outside hose bib replacement. Save yourself the trouble and disconnect your hose during freezing weather.
