One Sign Of An Impending Plumbing Issue Is A Decrease In Water Pressure.
Not only will cold winter weather affect your pipes, but, hot summer weather can cause your pipes to expand and burst, as well! Low water pressure in the summer is bothersome. However, this seems to be evidence illustrating a larger issue. Pressure changes are caused by breaks, leaking connections, or water supply malfunctions.
As the Summer reaches it’s peak temperature, the hot weather can actually cause the ground to fracture. The foundation of land that your residence or business will crack underground and cause many issues to your system. South Western Washington State has very old historic ground. Houses built below and on slopes face many landslide hazards, as well as, seismic tendencies. The expansive shift in temperature from Summer to Fall can put a serious strain on your plumbing system. The temperature changes will alter the ground that your pipes sit in. Without moisture, the soil will begin to contract and sink; moving the pipes, as well. The piping will shift around, often causing them to burst.
