A burst pipe is one of the most serious and upsetting plumbing emergencies. Fortunately, the trained professionals at Dependable Service Plumbing & Air can repair this problem quickly and help you minimize damage to your home.

What Causes a Burst Pipe?

Pipes can burst for several different reasons. In some cases, pipes burst because of a tree root that has wrapped around it. Pipes may also burst because of corrosion, or they may collapse because of environmental changes. Regardless of the cause, prompt professional attention is essential.

What to Do When a Pipe Bursts

A burst pipe can cause severe water damage very quickly, so it’s important to take action quickly when you see that a pipe has burst. Burst pipes are serious and should be left to the professionals at Dependable Service.

To minimize damage there are a few steps you can take before the professionals arrive. The first thing you need to do is stop the flow of water. The easiest way to do this is to shut off the water supply to your home.

After you have turned off the water, turn on all of the cold taps in your home to allow the water to drain. Shut off the hot water heater and turn on all of the hot water taps to drain off more water. Be sure to flush all of the toilets in your home to finish draining the water.
