What Causes Pipes to Burst?
One of the most common causes of a leaking pipe is plugging, which is caused by build-up from mineral deposits, foreign objects, or grime. These lead to blockages and eventual leaking of the pipes. When enough pressure builds, the pipes can burst, and the problems compound from there. Calling Flood Helpers for regular maintenance will decrease your chances of build-up and leaking pipes. If you do discover a leaking pipe, give us a call at (469) 529-0137 immediately, so we can help prevent the pipe from bursting. The amount of water lost from leaking pipes could be over 100 gallons. And too often, you won’t notice anything has happened until a bulge starts to appear in the ceiling or floor, or after the water starts to flood.
