Burst or Broken Pipes
Not to burst your bubble but broken pipes can cause major problems for you and your home. First thing you need to do when you realize there is an issue, turn the water and electricity off immediately. The most common cause of pipes bursting is frozen water expanding inside your pipes. Luckily we live in Florida and that is not very likely to be an issue. However, icy weather isn't the only cause for cracked pipes. Rusty pipes could be the cause of your popped pipes, hard water can also be a factor. A DIY disaster or poor installation from a trusted professional could also be the culprit.
