What causes pipes to burst?

 

Here are the common reasons that lead to burst pipes:

  • Frozen water
  • Ageing – Rusty, old or poorly maintained pipes are more prone to bursting. High water pressure can easily lead to bursting pipes if these are too old to handle the pressure
  • Tree roots – These tend to grow towards any source of water close by and the movement can trigger a pipe burst
  • Poor installation – If pipes are poorly installed, these can easily leak and eventually burst
  • Hard water – Water containing minerals like magnesium and calcium can corrode pipes
