Fixing Burst Pipe Lines

Posted by: Leigh Baker

Broken or Burst Pipe Lines

You might be asking yourself, “Why do my pipes keep splitting or bursting?”.

There’s numerous causes for this, the usual problem is the pipes aren’t buried deep enough. A lot of people rush the job and don’t dig deep enough for the pipes to be safe. Another common problem is rocks being buried with the pipe. As the ground settles after rains or heavy loads over the top the rocks can be forced through the pipes damaging them.

The good news is, we can help fix your pipe lines. As you can see here, we have the right equipment to help.

Another common cause is the pipe being sucked closed in an air vacuum when a valve is closed. This can be fixed with a vacuum relief valve.

Doing the job right the first time can save a lot of heartache.

Feel free to contact us.
