Common causes of a burst pipe

A burst pipe doesn’t occur overnight; it’s usually caused by repairs that were due but ignored leading the problem to get worse. Here are some common issues that can eventually lead to a burst pipe.


Corrosion can be a huge contributor to burst pipes. Corrosion occurs when the pH levels of the water are imbalanced causing rust and ultimately weakening the pipes. Pipe corrosion won’t happen overnight; it does take a fair while for corrosion to lead to a burst pipe, but it can be avoided completely if a corroded or rusted pipe is replaced as soon as it is noticed.


This is a common winter problem that occurs when the temperatures drop late at night. In the transition from day to night, day after day, the water in your external pipes will freeze and defrost multiple times. Every night the pipes freeze, the expanded ice causes hairline fractures that eventually will burst open. The best way to avoid this from happening is to insulate any external pipes at your property.


Clogs in any section of the pipe system within your home can affect the water pressure. When a clog forms deep within a pipe, in some cases it can cause the water pressure to build up around this clog. The only time it doesn’t cause too many problems is when the clog is quite close to the drain. If the pressure builds up too much, it can be too much for the pipe to handle and potentially burst.


After the winter months, your pipes shift a lot more to ‘settle’ from having had to contract in size multiple times due to frozen water in the pipes. Sudden high water pressure will rattle the pipes and the pipes may move a little too excessively in some circumstances. When this movement adds to an increase in water pressure in a specific area of your plumbing, it can cause the pipe to burst. It’s best to immediately contact a professional plumber in or around Stanmore to come out to deal with the issue as soon as possible.

Repairing your leaking pipe

You can, in some instances, try to fix the leak yourself if it’s something simple, such as a loose connection joint. If the leak that has occurred is due to a cracked or broken pipe, you should contact a professional plumber.

In an emergency, you might use pipe repair tape or one of the many pipe repair kits on the market that are easily accessible and can be used as a temporary fix for a leaking pipe. Your best solution would be to give us a call if you have a burst water pipe.

We’ll assign the job to a plumber from Intercity Gas that is closest to you at the time so they can get to as soon as they can. They’ll be able to assist from the moment they arrive and will make sure the repair is for a long term solution and not just a temporary fix.

Fix your water leak today

Many pipes are hidden behind walls or in the space between floors. Water leaking through walls or dripping into ceilings from upper floors may not initially be noticed. But over time, this will create mould to form within the walls and ceilings which is a health hazard and will definitely need to be addressed as soon as possible. Detecting and fixing a leak is crucial to making sure you don’t have to get to a stage where structural and cosmetic repairs are required.
