Freezing temperatures can be the most common cause of pipes bursting. Since water expands when frozen, it can cause the pressure inside the pipe to increase until it bursts! This also allows water sitting in the pipe to freeze and expand without busting it open. Other reasons for burst pipes can be excessive pressure through the system, and any fault in the piping will be exposed over time and broken down. The effects of burst pipes can be dramatic and devastating. When your home or business suffers this unfortunate situation, don’t fret – call C.A.R.E.
