CLEANUP! Red Carpet!

golden-globes-2014-pipe-burst-floodPipes are seriously bursting everywhere in the United States. Not even Gucci gowns and beautiful weather could keep the red carpet dry. It was a sunny day in L.A. for Sunday’s 71st annual Golden Globe Awards, and just less than two hours before the guests of honor arrived, a pipe burst, pouring 5,000 gallons of water into the area where many reporters were stationed with their equipment.
While most people correlate bursting pipes with freezing cold temperatures, this incident was reportedly caused when a big light used for producing video was set too close to a heat sensor, which then tripped the sprinkler system. Could happen anywhere. And does.
Water contains a unique substance that makes it expand as it freezes. This expansion puts large pressure on its container, including metal or plastic pipes. No matter the strength of a container, expanding water can cause pipes to break, in the same way that a can of soda – accidentally left in the freezer – will also explode.
Somewhat surprising, ice forming in a pipe does not typically cause the break where the ice blockage forms. Wen the water in the pipe expands enough, the pipe will burst, water escapes and serious damage is the result. If this damage happens to your home, call the team at Paul Davis to take care of you.
