What Causes a Pipe To Burst?
Pipes burst for a variety of reasons, the most common of which being freezing and corrosion. When too much pressure builds up within your pipes, the pipes are unable to expand. With nowhere to go, the pressure bursts out, causing broken pipes and wreaking havoc on your plumbing.
What To Do When a Pipe Bursts
If you experience a pipe burst, the first thing you should do is turn off the main source of water. Once this water main is turned off completely, try to drain your faucets to “bleed the lines,’ starting with the cold water faucets. Turn off your water heater and do the same with your hot taps. The most important step to take after a pipe bursts is to call Whitten Plumbing Solutions – we will work as fast as humanly possible to fix the problem!
