What causes burst pipes?
Burst water pipes are often caused from rocks and other debris buried in with the pipe work. Micro vibrations from the pressurised water constantly running through the pipe eventually lead to small splits, before finally cutting through and allowing water to escape.
This is the exact same for the pipe work in the wall cavities and roof space, except instead of rocks, tears can develop from mortar in the brickwork, or galvanised strapping on the frame work. Vermin can also chew on plastic pipe lines that are present within the property.
Water hammer is another problem for burst pipes. The hammering of the pipework causes a lot more vibration and will shorten the time it takes for a split to occur.
High water pressure is another factor to consider when investigating the causes of a burst pipe. All new homes built from 2000 have a pressure reducing valve installed after the meter, to protect your pipe lines, fixtures, and appliances. These valves are set at the recommended 500kpa, however many homes in areas such as Mitcham, Unley & Happy Valley are unregulated at 1000kpa.
