What Causes a Pipe to Burst?
While several things can cause a pipe to burst, here in Nampa, we see a few issues more often than others, including:
- Frozen pipe or frozen hose bib: In cold temperatures, the water in your pipes will freeze. Because ice has a larger volume than water, the pipe's pressure increases, causing it to burst. Pipe thawing by putting your faucets on drip can prevent this from happening.
- Corrosion: Corroded pipes have a high risk of bursting. Causes of steel pipe corrosion include low water pH, oxidation, and excessive water pressure in a closed-loop piping system. Chemical drain cleaners can also result in corrosion.
- Shifting soil: A common cause of underground burst pipes is the pressure from moving soil. Ground freeze and thaw, earthquakes, and construction projects can result in soil shifting.
Signs That You Have a Burst Pipe
A burst pipe doesn't always present as visible water spraying into your home. With a smaller leak or one in an area that isn’t visible, it could be days or weeks before you notice it. Unfortunately, even a small leak can damage structural components such as your floor, ceiling, or foundation. By looking out for signs of a burst pipe, you can take early action and prevent property damage.
Signs of a burst pipe include:
- A sudden drop in water pressure
- Dampness or dark spots on your walls or ceilings
- Standing water or puddling near your pipes
- Unpleasant odors
- Water discoloration
- An increase in your water bill
- High humidity levels and mold growth
