The Main Causes of Burst Pipes
There are many things that can cause pipes to burst but the most common one is usually clogging or blockage of the pipes which creates a buildup of pressure inside the pipes that eventually forces them to burst.
-Freezing water- among the leading causes of blockage in pipes is the freezing of the water inside the pipes; something that is quite common in Ottawa during the cold months of winter. At such times, the water inside the pipes is made to freeze by the cold temperatures. But water has an anomalous expansion in the sense that it expands as it freezes instead of contracting. This leads to increased pressure inside the pipes and which, in turn, eventually forces the pipes to burst.
-Tree roots- the roots of trees that grow near or directly above the pipes can restrict the flow of water through the pipes once they penetrate inside them resulting in high pressure which eventually bursts the pipes.
