Common causes of burst water pipes
We often get asked why water pipes burst when we turn up either on an emergency call or to diagnose issues that customers might be experiencing. No two properties are the same in terms of pipe system layout, types of pipework and surrounding conditions, however there are a number of factors that can have an impact on your water pipes, including:
- Wear and tear: although most pipes are constructed from hard wearing materials, they can develop small cracks and fissures over time simply from wear and tear. If your property has heavy water usage, or your pipes become clogged with material such as hair or soap build up, you should have them checked and cleaned out regularly by a professional.
- Tree roots: depending on where your property is situated, it may be directly in the firing line of one of the most destructive elements for pipework – tree roots. Not all trees have invasive roots, however common species such as jacarandas and fig trees are known to be particularly bad for blocking and damaging any nearby pipe systems. One of the biggest issues with tree roots is that the problem may be hidden for years, and you may only notice that your pipes drain a little slower than normal, until one day the water pipes burst and they stop functioning altogether.
- Older pipework: if you move into a property that has water pipes that are over 30 or 40 years old, you should have them checked for any leaks, misalignment or other forms of damage. Generally well maintained pipes can last many years under the right conditions.
If you’re not sure about the condition of your pipes, have been experiencing any slowdown in drainage, noticed a foul smell coming from your property or water pooling in and around the buildings, call us in as soon as possible.
Blocked pipes can cause dangerous backflow issues, as well as lead to major damage to the pipework if left for long enough, and even slightly damaged pipes can leak a surprising amount of water, leading to large water bills. Most damaged water pipes can be repaired easily, quickly and cost effectively if the problem is caught early enough. We use specialist CCTV cameras to efficiently diagnose a range of problems, without requiring extensive excavations.
