1️⃣ Freezing temperatures: When the water in a pipe freezes, it expands and puts pressure on the walls of the pipe. This pressure can cause the pipe to crack or burst.
2️⃣ Corrosion: Over time, pipes can become corroded, which weakens the metal and makes it more likely to burst.
3️⃣ High water pressure: If the water pressure in your plumbing system is too high, it can cause stress on the pipes and lead to a burst.
4️⃣ Age: Pipes that are old and worn out are more susceptible to bursting than newer pipes.
5️⃣ Improper installation: If pipes are not installed correctly or are not the right size for the system, they may be more likely to burst.

Which hot water system is best for me?Rishi2023-04-14T03:37:41+00:00
🚰 Choosing the right hot water system for your home depends on a variety of factors such as your budget, hot water needs, and energy efficiency goals.
💰 If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, electric hot water systems may be a good choice. They are generally cheaper to install and purchase compared to gas or solar hot water systems.
🔥 Gas hot water systems are a good option for those who want a continuous flow of hot water and have access to natural gas. They are more energy-efficient than electric systems, which can save you money on your energy bills in the long run.
☀️ Solar hot water systems are the most energy-efficient option and are ideal for those who live in areas with plenty of sunlight. They have a higher upfront cost but can save you money in the long run on your energy bills.

🚰 If you’re experiencing a no hot water issue, there are a few things you can check before calling a plumber:
1️⃣ Check your hot water system’s power source – If you have a gas hot water system, make sure the pilot light is lit. If you have an electric hot water system, check that the circuit breaker hasn’t tripped.
