What Causes Pipes to Burst?

Pipes can burst for a number of reasons. The most common causes include:

  • Rust – Metal pipes will break down over time. And frequently, we see older homes completely fitted with metal pipes. This is almost an accident waiting to happen.
  • Minerals in the Water – Deposits of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals often build up within the pipes. Over time, these deposits can cause pipes to burst.
  • Poor Installation or Poor Quality – Not all plumbers have the same standards for their work, and not all parts are created equally. If a job is rushed, corners are cut, or low-quality parts are used to increase profits, there is a strong chance the result will be burst pipes.
What Causes Burst Pipes

Signs a Pipe has Burst

Not all burst pipes are dramatic and noticeable. Sometimes you have to pay attention to clues to find that there is a problem:

  • A pipe often causes water stains on the walls and ceiling with a hole.
  • Brown water from your tap often signals rust, leading to burst pipes. Water from your tap should be clear and tasteless.
  • Changes in water pressure, especially on the upper floors of your home, can mean pipes have developed holes.
