What are Common Causes of Burst Pipes?
There are several reasons why a pipe could burst. Below you’ll find some of the most common causes behind burst pipes.
Age: Generally, plumbing that is over 40 years old is a likely candidate for a sudden burst. Older steel, clay, and cast iron pipes can thin with age due to rust or water wear. Hard minerals and scale can build up and cause a pressure burst.
Tree roots: Tree roots search for moisture. Once water is detected, they may entangle a pipe and invade it, causing a clog which can lead to added pressure, and eventually results in a burst pipe.
Debris: All pipes accumulate debris from a range of different sources. A clog combined with forceful and repeated DIY plunging has been known to break a weakened pipe.

Professional Pipe Repair
The older, standard method of repairing burst pipes involved opening up walls, digging up floors or slabs, or trench digging with heavy equipment. Once the pipe was accessed, either splicing in a new section or complete replacement was performed. In rare instances, digging or wall demolition is called for, particularly if multiple pipes and sections are equally damaged.
A benefit of our professional pipe repair service:
Trenchless sewer and pipe repair is non-invasive.The process involves a tube covered in resin that can be inflated in order to conform to the pipe, creating a new lining. This process will require only one hole.
