If the hot weather causes your pipes to leak or burst, call the leak detection experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
When you got back from Inverness’ Bark Central Dog Park this morning, you were dripping with sweat. After you cooled off in the shower, you were thinking that – hot as it is, at least in Florida you don’t have to worry about water pipes bursting because of the weather the way they do up north in the winter.
You’d be wrong about that.
Florida pipes might not freeze, but the weather can make them burst or otherwise leak or break.
“Cold weather is not the only cause of water pipe failure. Warm weather also causes thousands of pipes to burst each year. In the dog days of July, August, and early September, heat-related water main bursts are at peak levels,” blog.wegowise.com says.
“Even if your pipes are underground they are not safe from extreme temperatures. Have you ever noticed that in the summer months there seems to be roadwork going on everywhere? Some of that is due to underground water pipes rupturing due to the heat. Most towns and cities keep extra roadwork crews readily on call to deal with this problem. A good way to tell if the heat is affecting your pipes is by feeling the temperature of you water. If you turn on the cold water and you feel lukewarm to hot water coming out for several minutes, chances are your water pipe has already begun to leak or has gained pressure.”
