How the Weather Effects Plumbing
Ever wondered exactly how pipes burst within and outside your home? Aloha Plumbing is here to fill you in and to fix your pipes if the accident occurs!
Why do pipes crack/burst?
1. Cold Weather
Extreme temperature and temperature changes cause pipes to freeze and then burst. If the water in the pipes freezes, it expands and creates pressure. This pressure is the reason pipes burst.
We often find within the re-pipes that we do that most of them contain very old parts. Due to old age, corrosion can build up within the pipes causing it to fail.
3. Water Pressure
Too much water pressure can be the cause of pipes bursting. This is rarely the case, but can still happen nonetheless.
