Watermain breaks usually result from external corrosion of the pipe. Soil is highly conductive and corrodes the metallic pipe from the outside in. Extreme weather conditions cause the ground to swell and contract. This places excessive pressure on the watermains and weakens the pipe. On average the province of Ontario repairs 400 to 800 breaks per year or about 1 to 2 breaks per day.
