Why do water pipes burst?

Burst water pipes can be frustrating and can cause a huge amount of damage to your home. A burst water pipe is usually caused by a change in temperature, most commonly from when water freezes in a pipe. This then expands the pipe, which causes it to burst. A burst pipe can happen almost anywhere on your property where water flows. But, what happens if you have a burst pipe?

Burst Pipe Symptoms

A burst pipe isn’t always easy to identify, and burst pipe symptoms are not always huge water leaks. If you’re not sure if you have burst water pipes, here are some burst pipe symptoms to look out for…

  • Water pressure issues or intermittent water supply to taps.
  • Water damages patches on your walls or ceilings.
  • Damp patches of flooring.
  • Bulges in walls.

What happens if you have a burst pipe?

When a water pipe bursts, you will likely notice leaks and floods in areas on your property. If you have a burst pipe in your ceiling, you will notice stains and drips. So, what should you do if you have a burst pipe? There are several things to do to minimise any damage from escaping water…

Turn off your water

When pipes burst, it’s vital that you turn off your stop taps and central heating boiler. Stop taps are typically found underneath the kitchen sink and can be closed by turning clockwise.

Drain your water system

To relieve any pressure that remains in your pipes, you must drain your water system. To do this, turn on all the cold taps and, once the boiler is turned off, turn on all the hot taps.

Soak or block escaping water

One of the most important things to do is to soak up or block escaping water. If water has leaked near your appliances, switch them off at the mains for complete safety.

Contact a plumber

In the event of a burst pipe, you must get in touch with a plumber as soon as possible. They can act fast in repairing or replacing your burst pipes.
