Can a Pipe Burst in the Summer?

Burst Pipe Service

A Burst Pipe Can Damage Your Home’s Structure and Create an Environment for Mold.

When you hear the term “burst pipe repair,” many people instantly relate it to the winter time. During the winter, we hear a lot of information about how water can freeze within your pipes as the temperature drops, expanding and causing extensive damage to your plumbing system. However, did you know the pipes can likewise burst in the summertime? Just like the winter, extreme heat can affect your plumbing leading to a burst pipe, and other factors such as clogs or even increased utilization can also affect your system. This can lead to the need for repair or even repiping service for your home depending upon the extent of the damage.

When is Repiping Necessary?

As stated previously, it is usually only necessary to repipe a home due to a burst pipe when there is extensive damage. Many repair services will merely require a certain area of plumbing be repaired or replaced in order to return flow to your system. However, if you find yourself in need of burst pipe service, consider a few possible questions about the state of your home plumbing before dismissing repiping service entirely:

  • If your home’s plumbing older?
  • Is your water coming out of the faucet with a red or brown tint?
  • Is the water pressure inadequate?
  • Are more and more leaks springing up in your home plumbing?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, asking your plumber for an inspection as well as burst pipe repair can help you determine if it is time for new plumbing instead. Repiping can also be seen as a way to improve your home’s value with quality plumbing systems. When choosing the new pipes for your home, you have a variety of options, from cast iron to modern PVC pipe. With the available options, you can choose a plumbing system that will last a long time and give you quality benefits.
