Burst Pipe Repair South London
What Causes Burst Pipes?
One of the most common questions we get asked is “what causes burst pipes?”Over time plumbing pipes will weaken, split and burst if they aren’t maintained, when this happens it generally requires emergency plumbing services. General ageing is the main reason that the surface of a pipe will become thinner and weaken to the point of bursting. Ageing, plus the consistent pressure of the water flowing through the pipe, is enough to cause it to rupture. In some cases, tree roots may end up causing damage to the pipe. However general maintenance of pipes can help significantly reduce this risk and help pipes last a longer time.
