At What Temperatures Do Pipes Burst?

While there is no magical number at which all pipes burst, it’s generally acknowledged that most pipe-bursting occurs when the weather is 20 degrees Fahrenheit or less. Once temps drop below this number, the probability of pipes freezing over increases.

On average it takes about 4 to 5 hours for pipes to freeze and burst, especially if they have no source of heat. Because this usually takes place outdoors, it can be difficult to know if your pipes have burst. That’s why taking preventative measure before winter will prevent leaks and protect your plumbing.

What Happens to Outside Pipes When They Freeze?

Water bursting an exposed pipe from frozen conditions can cause a significant amount of damage. Frozen water expands inside of the pipe and pushes against the pipe walls, which will often lead to cracks or bursts.

The thawing of frozen pipes in Indianapolis without notice can lead to large leaks and, in some cases, can go undetected for a long time - when pipes are embedded inside walls or under the house, leaks can go undetected for a long time. This can allow water damage to occur. A homeowner's insurance claim resulting in over $10,000 in damages is the result of this incredibly common issue, which accounts for 20 percent of all claims.
