Tracking the problem down can be a chore. Many water lines, actually almost all water lines, run behind walls, inside flooring, or in two story homes, through the ceiling. If you have woken up to, or come home to, a major flood, the chances of the cause being a burst water line are pretty high.

A burst pipe is no simple matter. You can’t just wrap duct tape around it, and call it good. There is no simple fix for a pipe that is broken. The water coming into your home is under high pressure. That’s why when you turn on the faucet the water rushes out, and doesn’t trickle out. Water under that kind of pressure will always follows the path of least resistance.

Common causes of burst pipes

Contrary to popular belief water lines do not burst only in the winter time. There are lots of reasons that would cause a water line to burst. A water line can be compromised by tree or grass roots. Shifting soil or settling houses are also very hard on water lines, and age is a big factor in bursting water lines, as well as freezing. All water lines are designed to withstand these factors, but that does not mean that they do not succumb to them. A yearly inspection of your water lines will help to prevent any unwanted and costly repairs or damage.

The damage caused by water can be extensive. A simple overflowing toilet can cause massive floor damage, as well as spread mold making bacteria, which can threaten the health of you and your family. An undetected slow drip can cause damage to support beams, as well as the floor and walls. A water stain on the ceiling is the last bit of damage that happens. When you see the stain, you should know that the problem is much deeper and wide spread.
