What causes burst pipes?

The most common cause of burst pipework in the home is brittleness. This could be due to extremes of temperature causing the pipe to expand and contract over many years.

The second cause is simply old age. Pipes normally burst at their weakest points (usually at the joint) and as the vast majority of pipework is hidden under the floor or above the ceiling, it could be some time before it’s noticed.

If you see wet marks in the ceiling or in your backyard, it’s best to call us in straight away. Our leak detection professionals may help prevent any serious damage from occurring.

What should you do if you discover a burst pipe?

The first thing to do in these situations should always be to cut off the water supply to the house or property by turning off the stop valve. If you can’t find it we can help you find it over the phone.

The good news is that when you contact us, you’ll be speaking directly to a fully qualified plumber who will advise you of what to do before we arrive.

You also need to make sure there are no electrical appliances in range of the leaking water. If there is you may need to switch off the electrical mains also.

Be sure to take photos of any damage for insurance purposes, it’ll make your claim process much easier.
