Reasons Pipes Break
Pipes break for a number of reasons, including the following:
- Freezing temperatures
- Water pressure that is too high
Some things to look for when determining if your pipes are broken or damaged include the following:
- Wet spots on the ceilings or walls
- Unusual noises from the water main
- Bubbling in the walls, wallpaper, or paint
- Spots of grass in your yard that are greener and thicker than normal
- Frequent electrical issues
- Loss of water pressure
What You Can Do
When a pipe bursts, you can apply a few quick, temporary fixes. First, you’ll want to shut off the water. Depending on where the broken pipe is located, you may need to shut off the electricity as well. After turning off the water, open a faucet to relieve any water pressure remaining in the pipes.
