What Causes a Pipe to Burst?
Frozen pipe repair is essential. Any homeowner who has experienced a burst pipe can attest to what a headache a burst pipe can cause. Water expands when it freezes. When this occurs in the pipes in our home, the expansion can cause ruptures. Normally, one might think that the extent of the damage would be limited to the point where a pipe has frozen, but the damage usually occurs between the source of the freeze and the faucet. As the ice blocks the pipe and expands, the water pressure in the pipe increases. As the pressure increases with the expanding ice, the pipe, which is not made to withstand such pressure, ruptures.
