Burst Pipe Signs

Besides obvious signs of large water puddles in your home, there are often more subtle signs of a burst pipe. Issues with water pressure, high water bill, water sounds, and pipe noises, are all common signs of a burst pipe. 

Rust 

Rust is a common cause of pipe damage in galvanized steel pipes. This rust is similar to rust that you would find on a car. It can build up inside the pipe, which results in lower water volume that gets mistaken for low water pressure. Eventually, the pipe will rust out at the threads, causing leaks. 

High Water Pressure

While high water pressure may not seem like a concern for your pipes, it can cause long-term damage to your home’s plumbing. Too much water pressure can put a lot of unnecessary strain on your home’s plumbing system. This can lead to loosened joints, resulting in leaks. Be sure to check for leaking faucets throughout your home especially if you notice the pressure in water has changed.
