Why Pipes Burst

The primary reason pipes burst is because water that rests inside the pipe expands when it freezes, which increases the pressure inside the pipe and causes it to break open. Keep in mind that not all frozen pipes will burst, but the continual freezing and thawing puts stress on them which could lead to failure down the road. If you’ve had winters where your pipes have frozen repeatedly, it’s a good idea to call in a burst pipe repair professional to inspect them when they thaw to assess any damage.

How to Tell If You Have a Burst Pipe

You might not be able to tell immediately if you have a burst pipe so here are a few signs to look for that indicate a problem.

  • Changes in Water Pressure -- If you suddenly notice changes in your water pressure, you may have a hole in one of your pipes.
  • Water Marks -- The pipes that run behind your walls may create a damp mark or streak if it’s leaking. Check your basement and laundry rooms especially for this situation.
  • Pooling Water -- If you notice water pooling anywhere in the house, it could be a burst pipe.
  • Hissing or Whistling Sounds -- Sometimes when a pipe has burst, you’ll notice hissing or whistling sounds when you’re using your plumbing. This happens when air gets into the system and could mean a broken pipe.
