Burst Pipes Melbourne
A burst pipe can be one of the most damaging and costly problems in residential and commercial plumbing. It not only makes the plumbing unusable but can also cause damage to the floor, furniture, walls and even the foundation of the building if left unsolved. There are several reasons why pipes may burst, with some of the most common causes being pipe age, misuse, lack of proper maintenance, and damage. You might realise there is an issue when you see that your water bill is extremely high, or notice that water is seeping through the ground from an unknown source. Our burst pipe plumbing specialists can detect your burst pipes and offer you the best possible solutions for burst pipes Melbourne encounters, to ensure the issue is resolved and doesn’t happen again.
What Causes Burst Pipes?
There are numerous potential reasons why the pipes inside your home or business can experience too much stress and break open, causing major flooding and damage problems. They include the following:
Leaking pipes – a small leak can quickly turn into a large one. With sufficient pressure, pipes burst and cause a big problem.
Old piping – the older your property is, the more chance there is of your pipes bursting at some stage.
Cold weather – when water freezes inside a pipe, it expands and increases pressure inside the pipe.
Shuddering pipes – ever turned on your water and noticed a vibrating sound? This can cause damage to your pipes, but we can fix it!
Maintenance to Avoid a Burst Pipe
Your plumbing is put under pressure every day by common daily actions such as flushing toilets, taking showers, doing the dishes or the laundry, and heating and cooling a property.
Any faults or weaknesses that are present in the piping will break down over time and eventually become a completely broken pipe. Not only will this lead to costly property damage, but it will cost you significantly on your water bill.
If you maintain your pipes by fixing any leaks, you can avoid an emergency situation caused by a burst pipe. If a pipe leak isn’t fixed right away, the leak could cause further damage, even to the point of it breaking open.
