What Causes Pipes to Burst?
Metal piping is more susceptible to freezing because the metal holds the frigid temperature longer, thus causing the water inside to freeze. Aside from cold weather, pipes can also burst due to damage or age. Pipe joints are especially susceptible to wear over time as the seals can become worn and cause them to weaken. Annual inspections of your plumbing can detect problems and minimize unwanted surprises. Our plumbing professionals will map out and inspect the plumbing in your home to ensure proper precautions and insulations are put in place.

How to Prevent Your Pipes from Bursting
Burst pipes are relatively common in Indiana, but proper preventive action will help you avoid this problem. Proper insulation can prevent burst pipes so sure your pipes are surrounded with insulated sleeves. These special sleeves provide a protective barrier around the pipes when the temperature falls below freezing.
All joints and piping near the exterior walls should be covered in particular since these areas are more vulnerable to cold weather. If you have an unheated basement, we recommend that you consider the insulation of the piping—this will ensure proper water flow and will prevent the pipes from cracking due to the cold.
No one wants to wake up and find their home flooding from a burst pipe! Our local plumbers work with you to inspect and protect your home from the possibility of frozen and burst pipes. Contact Service Plus for an inspection of your home’s pipes to prevent them from freezing and cracking.
