What Causes Pipes to Burst
Burst pipes are one of the most frequent calls plumbers get. And to be sure, a burst pipe is an emergency. The most common reason pipes burst is freezing. When the water in the pipe freezes, it expands. Over time, this expansion puts pressure on the pipe, which weakens it and causes it to break. If a pipe bursts inside the home, the water damage can range in the thousands if action is taken quickly. The best way to guard against burst pipes is to insulate them against the cold when possible.

Tips to Prevent a Clogged Toilet
Clogged toilets are another reason people reach for the phone in a panic and call an emergency plumber. However, you can prevent clogged toilets by following these steps.
- Don’t flush anything other than human waste and toilet paper.
- Flush the toilet twice for bigger jobs to keep pipes clear.
- Check the main sewer line for root ingress, which clogs up pipes.
