A burst pipe is definitely one of the most serious plumbing emergencies! Some signs of a leaking or burst pipe include soggy expanded wood, water dripping down the ceiling or walls, a bathroom that has water flooding and so on!
If you find that your water meter is running despite all the taps being closed it can indicate a silent leak or burst somewhere in the plumbing system. Flooding water can cause property damage that can be very expensive down the line to address.
Burst pipes can cause a lot of inconveniences both internally as well as externally including:
Mold or mildew growth leading to allergies, worsening of respiratory conditions
Structural damage to building, painting, wooden cabinets, doors and other materials
Attracts pests including insects, mosquitoes, rodents
Leaky shower and taps: Shower leaks are very common leading to structural damage, mould growth and slippery floors.
Toilet leaks: Low water pressure or damage to the system can lead to a lot of water going down the drain!
Kitchen pipes burst – food waste, dirt or other particles constantly flushed down the kitchen sink can lead to building up of pressure in the pipes leading to a burst eventually.
External pipes damage: Copper pipes are prone to corrosion and damage leading to a pipe burst. Extreme weather changes can also contribute to pipes expanding and contracting leading to a burst.
