Frozen & Burst Pipe Repair - Bosco Home Services

Freezing temperatures can cause pipes to burst, leaving you with a long list of problems.

What causes burst pipes?

  • Frozen water: This is one of the most common causes of a burst pipe. As water freezes, it expands and can cause the pipe to crack.
  • Clogs: Clogs can also cause pipes to burst by increase pressure if your pipes. If the pressure is too much for it to bear, it will burst.
  • Rust: Pipes are more prone to rust as they get older and become more likely to crack under pressure.
  • Rodents and tree roots: A rodent can chew through certain types of pipes and tree roots can invade and grow inside pipes.

There are a few simple ways to avoid burst and frozen pipes:

  • Ensure that your pipes are insulated before the winter arrives
  • Ensure your heating systems are running smoothly and have them checked before the cold season begins
  • Ensure air leaks around pipes are sealed
  • Ensure that if there is clog in your pipes, it is removed as soon as possible as it can freeze just as easily as water

How do we fix a burst pipe?

If you have a burst pipe, make sure that you call a professional plumbing company right away. Burst pipes are a plumbing emergency, and they can result in serious damage.

  1. The first thing that we will do is inspect the pipe and assess the damage. This allows us to determine whether replacement or repair is the better option.
  2. If the damage is only minimal, we may only have to replace a small section of the pipe. If the pipe has been severely damaged, we will replace it.
  3. After we have finished repairing or replacing your pipes, we perform a number of tests to make sure that everything is running as it should.
