What Can Cause A Pipe To Burst?
Not surprisingly, a burst pipe is one of the most common calls for emergency plumbing services. That is because in seconds a burst pipe can flood any part of your home causing significant damage and unwanted headaches. While a burst pipe can technically occur at any time, most often it is because the pipe has been exposed to cold weather.
Cold or freezing temperatures can cause the water in your pipes to freeze, causing the ice to expand and put pressure on the pipe itself. Once the pressure becomes too great, the pipe will burst, causing an emergency plumbing situation.
What Can Cause A Clogged Drain?
Another common call we receive for emergency plumbing services is clogged drains. Clogged drains can be easy to prevent so long as you know what to watch for. Here are a few examples of items that can cause your drains to clog.
Hair: The most common cause of clogged drains in the bathroom. Hair can get tangled up with grease, soap, and scum, to create a thick blockage that is hard to get rid of.
Soap: Many soaps are still made using grease and fat which can cause blockages within your pipes. If you use liquid soap or body wash this can eliminate that problem.
Food Debris: Many people use their garbage disposal or kitchen sink to get rid of food debris. This habit along with grease can cause your kitchen sink to clog.
Minerals: If your municipal water is hard, meaning it contains a high concentration of minerals, it can build up and clog your pipes. Make sure to use water softeners to help prevent this problem.
Non-Flushable Items: Toilet clogs are most often due to something being flushed down a toilet that should not have been. Remember the only items that should be flushed down a toilet are human waste and toilet paper.
