🚰 Pipes can burst for several reasons, including:
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.
