Broken Pipe Repairs

A broken pipe is the last thing anyone wants to handle. However, every homeowner experiences a broken pipe burst or leak at some point. And if you don’t fix it immediately, it can cause significant damage to your property.

At Clean Drains, we have a team of professional plumbers who can fix your broken pipes and plumbing issues to prevent any structural damage to your property. We can help you protect your family and belongings from the devastating effect of water contamination.

We understand that repairing broken pipes and plumbing systems can be frustrating and expensive. That’s why we’ve provided you with information on the various causes of broken pipes and things to do when a water pipe bursts.

What Causes Broken Pipes?

While broken Pipes can occur for many reasons, sometimes they’re a symptom of another serious problem. That said, here are some common causes of broken pipes.

Freezing

Freezing is among the primary causes of broken pipes. Water exposed to cold temperature freezes and solidifying to form ice. The ice expands and increases the pressure inside the water pipe. If the pipe can no longer contain the volume, it will eventually burst or break. To prevent this problem, homeowners should take the necessary steps to winter-proof their pipes.

Pipe Corrosion and Aging

Older pipes often wear down and become susceptible to leaks and bursts. Steel pipes are susceptible to corrosion and alkaline water -these can reduce the integrity of the pipe significantly. Pipe damage from corrosion can happen without warning or begin with slow dripping and worsen over time.

So, it is crucial to have your pipes checked by a plumber from Clean Drains, especially if you live in an older home.

Clogs

When debris and dirt gather inside the pipes, they can create clogs, which can block the movement of water or increase the water pressure. When the water pressure is too high, the pipe can rupture or leak.

Blockage of drains and toilets can also have a serious health risk, especially if it involves wastewater and sewage.

Homeowners and businesses in Australia can prevent such issues by doing regular maintenance of their plumbing systems.

Tree Roots

Tree roots can penetrate through joints in underground pipes and drains, causing them to leak. They can also grow in the direction of the water pipeline or sewage pipes and cause a blockage that can result in serious problems.

The soil underneath your home can also become unstable if construction is happening closely. As such, any underground pipe around might get punctured.

Things to Do When Your Water Pipe Bursts

Broken pipe water damage is a stressful and serious problem. Here are five things you can do immediately to hand the situation and reduce damage to your property.

  1. Turn off the water: As soon as you notice a broken pipe, you must deactivate the water supply. This way, you can stop the water from leaking into your home and potentially saving thousands of dollars in water damage repairs. Also, don’t forget to shut off the electricity to your home.
  2. Open a faucet: After turning off the water, open a faucet or turn on a sink. This will allow you to relieve the remaining water pressure in the pipe and ensure a complete shutdown.
  3. Get rid of the water: It’s wise to get rid of the water as best as you can to reduce the damage to your house. Dry out as much water in your home as possible.
  4. Open doors: If the cause of the pipe burst is freezing, open up the cabinet vanity, close doors, and turn up the heat. Therefore, the heat will get to the pipes underneath the sink and wall, causing the water to thaw faster.
  5. Cut and remove the damaged pipe: Get rid of the broken part of the pipe. Alternatively, consult a professional plumbing company to help you address the issue.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
