Why Do Pipes Burst?
As water freezes, it expands. The trapped frozen water in a pipe causes fittings to snap or the pipe to split.
How To Prevent Pipes From Bursting
Insulating pipes will help keep water from freezing and on extremely cold nights, some homeowners choose to allow faucets in their home to drip to maintain water flow throughout the system. Pipes can also burst from pressure in the system, so the problem can actually happen anytime of the year no matter the temperature outside.It’s always a good idea to have a professional plumber such as Synergy inspect your infrastructure to prevent pipes from bursting.
Possible Damage from Burst Pipes/
Most homeowners will be able to catch a burst pipe before it becomes a major issue by cutting the water to the pipe, but sometimes if the pipe is allowed to flood the home with water, the implications can be catastrophic.
