3 Reasons a Pipe Could Burst

Home Repair

Almost nothing could be as bad as a burst water pipe. A burst pipe is the kind of emergency that needs immediate intervention. As soon as a pipe bursts, your home's walls, siding, electrical wiring, flooring, fixtures, and furniture are all at risk of permanent damage. Undiscovered pipe bursts can lead to mold and mildew growth or even foundation damage that can condemn your entire home. Your entire plumbing system could be destroyed if the problem is not addressed. Needless to say, this is the sort of problem you do not want.

Of course, even an emergency like this has a solution. Just be sure to call emergency plumbers in Anderson, SC, so that your pipe burst can be repaired, any standing water and flood damage can be contained, and you can help solve the plumbing issue that caused the burst before it causes further destruction.

What could have caused the burst, though? Of course, that depends on your specific case, but there are some common factors that tend to cause water pipes to burst. If your pipes are suffering from any of the 3 following problems, then an explosive plumbing emergency may be in your future.

1. Invasive Tree Roots

Shady, green trees are wonderful additions to any property. Of course, as beautiful and important as they are, they can also be a huge nuisance. Their branches can cause fires when they touch power lines or fall onto your car or house during bad weather, and pesky pests are likely to roost in them. Even worse is what tree roots can do. Those hidden offenders are vital to the health and growth of trees but they have a tendency to seek out water.

Where better to find water than in your sewer main or other plumbing on your property? Sensing moisture, roots can burrow through the walls of your piping and flourish inside, cracking the entire pipe and causing a flooding disaster. This might sound like a series of coincidences, but invasive tree roots are actually the most common cause of pipe bursts!

Of course, this is not a good reason for you to start tearing out all of your trees. Before you hire a bulldozer, you should instead hire a plumber to search for weak points in your water line and repair loose joints. Trees are somehow smart enough to send their roots where water can most easily be accessed.

2. Pipe Corrosion

Pipe corrosion is not really something that you can help. Pipes, like everything else in your home, eventually age out of use. This means that your plumbing can corrode over time.

Of course, certain materials are more likely to burst. For example, steel piping is an outdated plumbing material. It is common in homes built before 1970. Steel pipes are not water resistant, which means that they rust and eventually corrode so badly that holes or thin spots can form in the plumbing. 

To prevent a pipe burst due to corrosion, contact a plumber to evaluate your plumbing system. They can inform you if your plumbing is too old or if it shows early signs of corrosion, then replace what is necessary in order to prevent a disaster.

3. Pipe Collapse

Pipes can collapse for a number of reasons. Typically, increased weight or pressure on your pipes will cause them to collapse. While pipes are built to handle some intense internal pressure from water, sewage, and external pressure from the environment, enough external force can crush them like a paper towel roll. 

A pipe collapse can be caused by environmental changes like nearby construction or landscaping. You should be aware of any construction going on near your property.

Obviously, a collapsed pipe is bad news for your plumbing. Water and sewage can begin to spew out of a collapsed pipe, potentially ruining your home and yard.

While there are a number of causes of pipe bursts, including invasive tree roots, pipe corrosion, and pipe collapse, there is only one possible solution: contact emergency plumbers in Anderson, SC.
