Why Did The Pipe Burst?

Pressure within the pipe can cause it to crack, break, or burst. Why is there pressure being created in the pipes? There are two reasons for that – blocked drains and leaks. Leaks within the pipe can cause the water pressure to change within the pipe. If the pressure in a certain area increases the pipe is prone to bursting. Blockages do the same thing however instead of changing the water pressure they completely block it; this causes the water to create pressure around the blockage and eventually burst. Both can be prevented if you spot the early warning signs. Which is why it’s important to know the signs and have a reliable plumber on call to assess your plumbing.

What To Do When You've Got a Burst Pipe?

Burst pipes are very hard to deal with on your own, which is why calling a professional to get the job done is the best way to go about it. The plumbers at Anytime Melbourne Plumbing have been dealing with burst pipe emergencies for years. While one of our plumbers is on their way to your location the moment you call, our expert will instruct you on what to do. We usually tell people to shut off the main water supply to stop the water wastage and limit damage. Secondly, make sure that all that water is away from any electrical equipment. If not, DO NOT go near the water. The water from the burst pipe can easily short circuit the entire electrical system fit comes in contact with any electric appliance or power point. Once this is done, it’s best to wait for our plumber to come and fix the problem.
