What Causes Burst Pipes?
Many factors can amount to having a pipe burst in your home. In California, the most common causes for burst pipes can easily be avoided. Some of these causes include:
If your toilet or drain becomes clogged, there will be excess pressure building up in the pipe system. In time, the pressure will be so much that the pipe can no longer take it, and it will burst.
With the use of chemical drain cleaners comes the downside that your pipes will begin to wear and weaken. The active chemical in most of these cleaners is lye, which eats away at clogs, but will also corrode the inside of your pipe creating weak spots.
How to Prevent it
Making sure your pipes and toilet are always running smoothly is a great way to ensure that there is no pressure building up to cause a burst. Avoiding chemical drain cleaners and investing in professional drain cleaning on a regular basis will also allow you to have absolute confidence in the integrity of your pipes.
