Causes of Burst Pipes

Pipes burst when the pipe material suddenly and completely fails. This can happen for a several reasons, ranging from pipe material that’s old and worn out to freezing and thawing cycles.

Pipes bursting from freezing and thawing is common in our area. The frozen water expands inside the pipe, putting pressure on the wall of the pipe until it breaks.

A burst pipe is more likely in situations such as:

  • Below-freezing temperatures
  • Rusted or corroded pipes
  • Damaged pipes
  • Old, worn pipes
  • Insufficient insulation
  • A buildup of water pressure

Regardless of the reason for the pipe failure, our experienced technicians can get the problem fixed quickly to prevent further damage to your home. We inspect your pipe to figure out what went wrong and needs to be fixed.

How To Prevent Frozen Pipes & What To Do if They Freeze

Pipes can freeze when the temperature drops, causing the water inside them to expand and potentially burst the pipes. This can lead to water leakage, property damage, and disruption to your daily routine. Homes in areas with harsh winters, such as Lancaster, are particularly susceptible.

Preventing frozen pipes is key to avoiding the hassle and expense of repairs. Here are some tips to help you keep your pipes from freezing:

  • Insulate exposed pipes: Make sure pipes in unheated areas like basements, attics, and crawl spaces are properly insulated.
  • Let faucets drip: Allowing faucets connected to vulnerable pipes to drip slowly can help prevent freezing.
  • Maintain thermostat settings: Keep your home heated consistently, even when you’re away, to maintain a stable indoor temperature.
  • Open cabinet doors: This helps heat better reach un-insulated pipes under sinks and appliances.

If you suspect your pipes have frozen or have already burst, it’s important to act quickly to minimize damage. At Lancaster Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we specialize in frozen pipe repair. Our experts have the knowledge and tools to address frozen pipe issues effectively.

Attempting to fix frozen pipes on your own can lead to further damage or incomplete repairs, which may result in recurrent issues. By entrusting the repair process to our trained experts, you can ensure that the repair is done correctly the first time.
