Some reasons for a Burst Pipe Melbourne
The pipes that form water lines within our homes have a long life expectancy. But, sometimes certain situations can place them under stress, causing them to leak or burst.
High water pressure
Exposure to high water pressure places stress on the piping and pipe joints, wearing them out faster than expected. Water hammer is often a sign of high water pressure.
Incorrectly installed pipes
It’s important to use a licensed plumber like Inner City Plumbing for your plumbing needs. Improperly installed pipes are at risk of hammering, leaking and bursting.
Clogged water pipes
Pipes that are completely or partially clogged with debris cause a buildup of pressure in the system. This pressure buildup places demand on the pipes to expand and eventually burst.
Ageing hot water system
Harsh weather and fittings that have loosened with age can cause hot water system pipes to leak and if not rectified, to burst.
Doing renovations or gardening which interfere with your water system can result in an unexpected pipe burst.
Temperatures that drop below freezing can mean that water in uninsulated pipes freezes. The frozen water expands, putting a strain on the pipe until it bursts.
Simple steps to avoid problems that occur with a burst pipe Melbourne
Step 1: Turn off the water at the main
Locate your water meter (usually in the front corner of the property) and turn the lever to the off position. This will prevent water flowing to your home or business and protect it from being further affected by water.
Step 2: Turn on taps
Turning on several taps will allow the water still in the system to run out here, rather than through the burst pipe.
Step 3: Call Inner City Plumbing on 1300 668 834 for 24/7 service
We will action your call immediately. While we are on our way, we suggest you clean up the excess water. This will help to minimise damage to your property and the total cost involved. As you clean up excess water, be sure to move your belongings and furniture from the area to protect them.
