What to Do Immediately After a Burst Pipe
When water freezes, it expands. When this happens inside your pipes, it builds up pressure and eventually causes your pipes to burst.
In the event of a pipe burst, locate the main water shutoff valve and turn it off. This will prevent any more water from spilling into your home. Then, to prevent any electrical shocks or possible fires, unplug all electronic devices in the affected areas.
Repairing Your Burst Pipe
In order to find the exact spot where the pipe has burst, we may need to make a small hole in the wall to gain access to the pipe. We will try to make the hole as small as possible, but this will depend on the location of the pipe and its ease of access.
Once we have access to the damaged pipe, we will remove the affected section using a pipe cutter. We will clean the area where the pipe was cut, then solder in a replacement piece. After we have made sure all leaks are found and taken care of, we will turn the water pressure back on to check that your repaired pipes are watertight and that there are no other leaks in the pipe system.
Installing Pipe Insulation
After we have made sure your pipes are not leaking, and after cleaning up the service area, we will provide advice on ways to help prevent future problems. We will go over any areas of piping that need insulation, as well as recommend the type of insulation needed. If you would like to protect any piping running along an outside wall, we will re-route the pipes to an area that is less likely to freeze.
