									            Solving Pipe Burst and Leakage Problem by Hiring a Dallas Plumber



The most common reasons for water supply pipes to burst are because they have been damaged
or because they have are old and corroded. Pipes can also burst when they freeze. When water in
a pipe freezes, the water turns to ice that expands and will eventually either split the pipe or force
a joint apart which could cause breakage in the pipes. If water doesn't flow out of a tap in very
cold weather, or if a water tank won't fill up, there could be a plug of ice blocking the pipes. The
plug won't be in the pipe that supplies water to the float valves or taps which are working
perfectly, or else they would not be working. So the plumber should be able to find the blockage
quite easily. More often than not freezing starts in pipes that are exposed outside or pipes that are
in the roof space, so these are good places to start looking for a blockage. To thaw a frozen pipe
the Dallas Plumber will have to heat it, either by wrapping something hot around it, or by putting
a hot water bottle over it, or by blowing hot air onto it.

In areas where pipes might freeze, you should always insulate pipework and fittings to stop them
from freezing, by covering with fibreglass blankets or what we call lagging. It is important to do
some research before hiring a plumber for any repairing problems or installing of plumbing
works. It is important to hire a certified and licensed Dallas Plumber.
