Burst Pipes

Over the years, burst pipes have somewhat changed in characteristics, however one thing will always stay constant and that is, ‘they’re a nightmare’.

Burst Pipes are a nightmare!

In copper pipes, thermal expansion and corrosion is the main cause of bursting.

Thermal Expansion
As pipes heat up, they expand and then as they cool they shrink which makes them weak in areas and inevitably causes them to split. It’s not un common to see this happening on bends and joints as it’s already been placed under stress.

Corrosion happens when copper pipes come in direct contact with things like; lime in cement; dissimilar metals, like nails, or aluminium studs.
