Burst pipes are not only inconvenient, but can also create costly problems. The potential water loss from burst pipes in your house can be as much as 100 gallons an hour. That is the approximately the amount of water it would take to fill your bath tub twice. If you were away for the day, say 8-10 hours, that’s 800-1000 gallons of water lost or 27 to 33 bath tubs full of water wasted. In addition to water waste and the cost of your water bill, can you image the thousands of dollars of damage to your home? Water damage from burst pipes can ruin your furniture, valuables, walls, floors and foundation.
Most common causes for a burst pipe?
Freezing weather is the most common cause of Burst Pipes in South Jersey. When it is below freezing, any water pipe exposed or under insulated can freeze. When water inside a pipe freezes, it expands. This pressure will eventually become too much for the pipes to handle and the pipes will burst.
A few less common reasons for burst pipes are aged, weak pipes that can no longer manage the water pressure and misused, exposed or damaged pipes.
Regardless of the reason your pipes burst, you need the help of a reliable plumber to professionally assess the situation and identify the best way to repair your pipes, so that your home or businesses plumbing is working properly!

What to do if your pipes burst?

How can you prevent your pipes from bursting?
A few easy ways to prevent your pipes from bursting include letting both your hot and cold faucets drip when the temperatures drop below freezing, especially at night. You can also open the cabinet doors below your sinks to allow heat from your home to circulate your pipes. It is important to keep the inside of your home warm during a cold snap and set your thermostat at the same temperature both day and night. If you are going on vacation in the winter, leave your thermostat set to a temperature no lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit and have a neighbor or family member check in on your home daily.
