When Temperature Drops, Your Pipes Face Potential Risks
As winter reaches its coldest point, residents throughout the country must deal with the challenge of frozen and burst pipes. When it gets really cold, the water in your pipes can turn into ice because of the low temperatures. Since water expands when frozen, it makes the pipes burst.
As plumbing issues don’t always occur at convenient times, we are always ready to assist our clients around the clock.

Common Causes Behind Pipe Bursts
Ever wonder why burst pipes & leaks occur mostly in freezy weather?
Here are some of the possible reasons for burst pipes at home & buildings:
a) Cold Weather Impact: Freezing temperatures can harm pipes, particularly when the cold causes the water inside to freeze. As ice takes up more space than liquid water, it exerts pressure on pipes, potentially leading them to stretch and burst.
b) Mineral Accumulation: If a home’s water supply is classified as “hard” due to high calcium and magnesium levels, it can harm pipes by leaving mineral deposits over time. Increased clogging from these deposits raises the risk of water pressure causing pipes to crack or burst.
c) Long-Term Wear and Tear: While pipes can endure years of use, they eventually reach a point of deterioration. Prolonged corrosion is a common factor contributing to leaks or bursts in pipes over time.
