Not sure whether your pipes are broken? Wondering whether you should repair or replace them? Need to figure out what to do about corroded pipe repair? Ben Franklin wants to help with that too! Here are a few things you should know about your pipes, including how to tell if you need help now:
Why are my pipes broken?
First and foremost: not all pipes are created equal. Unfortunately, some pipes break more than others. Generally, the older the pipe, the more prone the material is to corroding, leaking, or breaking down. The older your home, the older your pipes tend to be. In other words, if your home is old construction, then you can expect your pipes to be old – and if you’re having problems, they’re a likely culprit.
In the 1960s and 70s, for example, many homes were built with galvanized pipes. Unfortunately, galvanized pipes tend to corrode over time. Corrosion eventually causes leaks or back up, spoiling the water or cracking and causing water damage. Corroded pipe repair is also essentially impossible; replacing the pipe is easier and more effective. During the 80s and 90s, many homes were plumbed with faulty polybutylene plastic. Breaks in plastic pipes can start as hairline cracks or can break suddenly with little warning. More contemporary copper piping, on the other hand, lasts much longer and resists corrosion far more effectively than older materials. Your pipe problem probably isn’t “your fault;” it’s more likely your pipes are simply old and worn down enough that they can’t handle their workload anymore.
What Broke My Pipes?
Although it can happen, pipes rarely break all at once. Instead, as outlined above, a home’s pipes slowly become more worn out and susceptible to pressure and damage over time until, finally, something strains them too far. If you’ve noticed a fracture or serious rupture in one of your pipes recently, then it was probably caused by a combination of age, rust, corrosion, or strain and:
- Defective pipe construction
- Improper maintenance or pipe leak repair work
- Ineffective corroded pipe repair
- Freezing pipes
- Polybutylene (plastic) pipe malfunctions
- Back up
- Hard water
- Abnormally high water pressure
- Tree roots (which will necessitate sewer pipe repair)
How Do I Fix a Broken Pipe?
The best way to get a broken pipe fixed or replaced quickly and efficiently is to get help from professional plumbers. There are things you can do for DIY pipe leak repair in the mean time, however.
For example, you can wrap electrical duct tape around the pipe a few times and keep it tight using hose clamps at both ends of the tape. Remember, however: this is only a temporary fix. It’s always best to hire professional plumbers to handle any pipe leak repair or sewer pipe repair you need.
