Many people think they don't have to worry about broken pipes in the spring/summer but that really isn't the case. Before leaving for that vacation you might want to turn off your water and drain the pipes just like you would in the winter.

There are many reasons for a broken pipe in the spring/summer. Here are a few:

1. Invasive tree roots.

2. Extended wet/dry spells ( this can make the ground shift and the extra pressure of this movement can cause problems with buried pipes).

3. Rust in Metal Pipes.

4. Wear and old age.

5. Hard Water.

6. Clogs.

7. Substandard repairs.

8. When a pipe burst; if you can, turn off the water supply at the main cut off valve when a pipe breaks.

9. Drain the water by running cold water in the sink and flushing the toilets.

10. Of course call:
