What Causes Burst Pipes?
Many issues can lead to burst pipes. In colder states, freezing temperatures cause water in pipes to freeze and burst, but in warmer states such as California, the most common causes of burst pipes are clogged toilets and drains or corroded pipes. A clog in your system can cause pressure to build up inside the pipe, which is not designed to withstand such pressure, therefore, as it increases, the pipe will burst.
Corrosion can occur if the pipe is exposed to chemicals such as chemical drain cleaners. The active ingredient in these drain cleaners is lye, which will do damage to the pipe, creating weak spots and areas where a rupture can occur.
To prevent these emergencies, always make sure clogged drains are swiftly dealt with and try not to use chemical drain cleaners.
What to do in case of a Gas Leak
One of the most dangerous plumbing emergencies a homeowner can face is a gas leak. If you are experiencing a gas leak, take these precautions to protect your family:
- Make sure all appliances are off
- Call the gas company to shut off gas to your home
- Call Perry Plumbing Heating & Air for an emergency repair
- Open the windows to air it out
- Evacuate the home
- Make sure your car is not turned on and parked a safe distance away from the home
