If you’re a homeowner, you know that there are several types of maintenance issues that can happen at any moment, so it’s important to be prepared for these incidents. One common example is a pipe burst, which can lead to flooding and extensive water damage, high water bills, and mold growth. According to Texas-based law firm Arguello, Hope & Associates, 250 gallons of water are released daily in the United States because of a ⅛-inch crack in a pipe. Fortunately, Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling offers high-quality burst pipe repair services.
Pipes can burst for many different types of reasons. One of the most frequent causes of a burst pipe is freezing in the winter. During this season, the cold temperatures can cause the expansion of water in a pipe and the resulting pressure can lead to a burst. Other reasons for pipe bursts include blockage, aged pipes, invasive tree roots, and friction between a pipe and a slab in your home. If you notice that your pipes have a lot of wear and tear, it’s time to replace them. Additionally, it’s best not to plant trees near sewers or other water lines. Be sure to also check your yard for puddles and sinkholes.
There are multiple steps you can take to avoid burst pipes, including:
It’s also highly recommended that you have your pipes regularly inspected for leaks and other issues.
The first step a professional plumber typically takes to repair a burst pipe is to locate the pipe. Then, they will turn the water valve off to stop the flow of water. Once this is done, the plumber may remove the section of the broken pipe and replace this with a fully functional piece. Finally, the professional can turn on the water flow again and make sure the water is flowing smoothly (i.e. no leaks).
It’s best to seek help from a professional plumber because these professionals generally have the right tools to fix such issues and wear the proper attire (e.g. shoe covers). Many plumbing companies also offer satisfaction guarantees, so you can rest assured that the work is not finished until you are completely happy with the final result.
