What causes a burst pipe?
One of the most common reasons for a burst pipe is freezing water. In the winter when the temperature drops suddenly, water inside uninsulated pipes often freezes. These are pipes inside your loft, in the basement, or running along an outside wall.
As water turns to ice it expands, slowly splitting water pipes or joints as it widens. It doesn’t take a huge split in a pipe to cause a devastating leak. As soon as the water thaws and melts back to a liquid again, it drips and pours through the broken pipe.
Water can damage ceilings, walls, plasterboard, carpets, and floorboards it can be very expensive and disruptive to put right. That’s why it’s important to call an emergency plumber quickly when frozen pipes need a quick repair. We make sure the water is turned off immediately preventing further damage, and then we start fixing the broken pipe.
Has a DIY accident burst your pipe?
It’s quite easy to accidentally drill or cut through a water pipe when you’re completing DIY jobs. It’s not always clear where pipes run if they are buried in the wall or laid under the floor. But if you’ve burst the pipe, it’s better to call in a professional plumber to carry out the repairs. An experienced Gas Safe engineer will repair the pipes properly and safely. Don’t try to repair a broken pipe yourself, make sure it’s done the right way by calling our team of experts.
