Burst Water Pipes.

A consistent problem through out Canberra and surrounding areas cold winters.The most likely cause of a burst pipes in your home will come from frozen temperatures and unprotected piping. This normally happens when you don’t have the correct heat in your home which includes excluded areas. A pipe bursts when frozen due to the expansion of the water as it becomes ice. This puts pressure on the pipe from the inside and something has to give. This almost always is the soft copper or plastic of the pipe. Sometimes these breaks can be at the weaker joints or in the middle of the pipe.
