What causes a water main break?
Cold weather, extreme heat and temperature fluctuation cause changes in the soil around pipes which results in the ground to shift which causes pressure. The freezing and expansion of water contents may have the same overwhelming effect. Age, pipe defects, and sometimes accidents also contribute to a water main break.
