Some of the most common causes of broken or faulty water mains include corrosion, fluctuating temperatures, inconsistent water pressure, and excavation activities.
Older pipes are more prone to corrosion, and if installed before the 1980s, they may be made of cast iron. Cast iron is not as durable and cannot as effectively expand and contract with changing temperatures as modern-day materials like ductile iron and PVC can, which can lead to pipes cracking and leaking.
Extreme surges in water pressure can put water mains under considerable strain. Worst-case scenario, your water main will rupture as a result.
When contractors or property owners carry out excavation work, they can accidentally hit your water pipes with digging equipment or excavation machinery, which may lead to your water main breaking or leaking.
There are plenty of reasons why a water main can break, but the impact remains the same — potentially devastating damage. When water mains break, you must act fast, so don’t hesitate to contact us for reliable and successful repairs.
