Florida homeowners love the warm weather. When they build homes, they’re usually more concerned with air conditioning than heating. Even if you’re lucky enough to live in an area that never freezes, burst pipes can still be a concern. Pipes burst for many reasons including ongoing water pressure issues, slow drains, clogs, improper installment, structural issues, and corrosion.
Most Americans take clean, running water for granted, but it takes work to keep plumbing systems running smoothly. No matter where we live, we all agree that indoor plumbing is an integral part of our lives. We need dependable plumbing to ensure our water is safe to drink, pure enough to clean our clothes, and plentiful enough to shower us clean every day.
That’s why we all want our sinks, showers, dishwashers, washing machines, and toilets to continue to work dependably. But keeping your home supplied with water at the right time, at the correct pressure, without leaks, drips, or even worse, burst pipes, requires effort from the homeowner, as well as the help from a skilled plumber from time to time.
Don’t take your pipes for granted. If your pipes or any part of your plumbing system stops working, your entire life can turn upside down in minutes. While clogs, small leaks, or low pressure can be merely inconvenient, burst pipes can cause instant and dramatic damage that can cost thousands to repair.
