Here’s What YOU Can Do

A burst water pipe is an emergency and while we assure you our team will get to your location in less than an hour’s time, immediate damage control is required. First thing’s first, turn off the main water supply and all electricity. This way you don’t end up wasting tons of water and nobody wants to get electrocuted in such a situation. Closing the main water supply will eventually close the water flow from the water pipe. Use the other taps in your home and store some water for immediate use. Doing this will help you use up any water left in the pipes after closing the main supply. So, without any water in the pipes, the burst pipe won’t leak any more. While you fill buckets or bottles of water, contact the professionals. Even though sometimes the actual problem can be easily located, but it cannot be fixed that easily. There are many reasons why a pipe would burst which can often only be spotted by a professional plumber. So, call our team of experts today.

Do You Have A Hidden Burst Water Pipe?

This happens quite often that a pipe bursts without you ever coming to know about it, until it’s too late. So, how about you look out for some red flags the next time  you turn on the faucet.

  • Loss of water pressure- the most common way of determining blocks, leaks and bursts. If water has another outlet, then the main supply running through your tap will definitely reduce. In fact you may have a burst water main.

  • Damp patches on ceiling and walls- These are unpleasant to look at and cause a lot of damage to your health as well. A burst water pipe hidden in the walls, will ruin your wall.

  • Loose tiles- If the tiles in your bathroom just seem to come off with a slight nudge, then there’s a problem. This happens because it has nothing to stick to.

  • Puddles of water in your lawn- this is very yucky! Imagine stepping into your garden and stepping into a puddle of dirty water.

  • Peeling paint/wallpaper- It is more than obvious if your walls are wet, they will be unable to hold a whole layer of paint on them; nor can the glue for wallpaper survive a wet wall.
