Why Do Pipes Burst

Pipes burst for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is extreme temperature fluctuation, which can cause the molecules in the water to expand and contract, putting undue pressure on the pipe and causing a fracture or burst. Living in Melbourne – the city of ‘four seasons in one day’, this definitely makes sense!
Other known causes can include impact from tree roots or careless use of tools.

As soon as a pipe begins to fracture, there is a risk of getting a blocked drain, which will lead to a host of other problems. If you suspect any kind of fracture, then contact our Melbourne drainage specialists to investigate the problem.

Signs A Pipe Is Likely To Burst

There are a few signs that might present themselves when a pipe is likely to burst. These include, but are not limited to:

• Reduced water pressure
• Bad smells
• Water stains or puddles
• Strange sounds – gurgling or bubbling in the pipes.
• Soggy patches in the garden or yard

How to Fix a Burst Pipe Once And For All?
