Dealing With Burst Pipes?

Dealing with a Burst pipe in your home is a difficult situation. The amount of sheer damage that water can do in the small amount of time, can make your head spin! And of course the costs of repairing.

From the water extraction to the pipe repair, the drying, new drywall, etc.. The typical cost for pipe burst repairs in the winter of 2010 was somewhere around 20k… Yikes!

Frozen Pipes

The most common problem found when dealing with Burst Pipes, had to do with pipes being exposed to low enough temperatures to freeze. Keep in mind, a great deal of a homes piping can operate either under or in places where heating doesn’t reach.

Water freezes within the pipe when exposed to those conditions, which naturally expands the metal causing tears in the pipe itself, and resulting in noticeable pressure loss and water leaks.

Structural Damage

Pipe Corrosion

Next on our list is rust. This one is the least preventable I’d say. Over time this one is only going to happen, unfortunately. Corrosion happens because of the oxidation of the pipe whilst passing water and various other chemicals.

Stainless steel pipe fittings (which is also known as “ข้อต่อท่อสแตนเลส ราคา”  in the Thai language  ) is the best option for plumbing fitting with a solid material.

Calcium build-up is just another element that comes hand in hand with time. The buildup could eventually cause a congestion where pressures might develop and weaken the metal.

Root Damage

Plants and trees are a lot cooler than we give them credit for. They have this crazy ability to sense out where water is. Using their origins, they will “feel” out the region in search of water making their way down into wherever the moisture lies.
