How do we fix a burst pipe?

If you have reduced water pressure, wet patches on walls or ceilings, unusual sounds from pipes, and sudden increases in water bills, you likely have a burst pipe.

We prioritise fast response and efficient repairs, safeguarding properties from potential disasters and ensuring minimal disruptions.

Pipe Clamps

To address burst pipes temporarily, we utilise pipe clamps. These sturdy clamps are positioned over the burst area, effectively sealing it and preventing further water leakage.

While not a permanent solution, pipe clamps buy us the time needed to plan and implement a long-term fix.

Pipe Replacement

When faced with a burst pipe, we carefully assess the extent of the damage.

Depending on the severity, we may opt for pipe replacement, removing the damaged pipe section and replacing it with a new one. This is the most common method and is usually the quickest and most effective solution to fix the problem.

Epoxy Pipe Lining

For a more durable and lasting solution, we turn to epoxy pipe lining. In this method, we apply a specially formulated epoxy lining to the interior of the burst pipe.

The epoxy forms a protective barrier that seals the burst and reinforces the pipe, significantly enhancing its strength and preventing future bursts.

Soldering

When dealing with smaller bursts in copper pipes, we employ soldering techniques.

Soldering involves melting a metal alloy to create a watertight seal over the damaged area. This meticulous process ensures a reliable repair, effectively restoring the integrity of the pipe and preventing water seepage.

What Causes a Burst Pipe?

Corrosion of Old Pipe

Corrosion

Over time, corrosion can weaken pipe materials, making them more susceptible to bursting. In coastal areas or places with hard water (water with high mineral content), pipes may experience corrosion. This deterioration gradually compromises the pipe’s integrity, eventually leading to leaks or bursts.

Pipe High Water Pressure

High Water Pressure

Excessive water pressure is another common culprit behind burst pipes. If the water pressure exceeds the pipe’s capacity to handle it, the strain can cause weak points to rupture. Factors such as faulty pressure regulators, thermal expansion, or council water pressure fluctuations contribute to increased risks of bursting.

Aged Pipe Bust

Age and Wear

As plumbing systems age, the pipes become more vulnerable to bursting. Over the years, wear and tear, along with the accumulation of debris and mineral deposits, can weaken the pipe’s structure. This degradation makes older pipes more susceptible to bursting under normal water pressure.

Regular inspections and timely replacement of aging pipes can prevent potential burst pipe incidents and ensure the overall longevity of the plumbing system.

Pipe Burst from Tree Roots

Tree Roots

In outdoor plumbing, tree roots can infiltrate pipe joints or cracks searching for water and nutrients. As roots grow and expand, they exert pressure on the pipes, leading to blockages and potentially causing bursts. Regular inspections and proper tree management can help prevent this issue.
