How to Stop Leaking Until Your Plumber Arrives
A frozen pipe burst can cost a fortune. Burst pipes can rapidly waste between 4 and 8 gallons of water per minute. It won't take long to run your water bill into the thousands, but costs don't end there. Pipe bursts can also cause damage to flooring, ceilings, walls, furniture, and in more severe cases, structural damage. Prevention is the best solution. However, if a pipe burst disaster strikes, follow the instructions below to stop the leaking until Kinnett Plumbing arrives.
First, Turn Off The Water Supply
Shut off the main water supply to your home or business. If you cannot access the main waiter supply, call building maintenance or your landlord immediately. Shut off all electricity to the impacted areas to prevent electric shock and shorting out fixtures, appliances, equipment.
Second, Call Kinnett Plumbing
Kinnett Plumbing will send out a team of experts to locate the source of the problem, fix the pipes or plumbing systems involved, and ensure that the entire system is safe before turning your water back on. While onsite, we can install equipment to prevent future occurrences and further damage.
Third, Start Removing The Water
Mold and mildew can continue to cause damage after the leak has stopped. The sooner you begin the drying process, the better. Remove wet carpets, rugs, furniture, and other flooded items. Use mops, buckets, towels, a wet/dry utility vac, or an industrial floor fan to dry the area.
Pipes do not burst at the freeze point, they rupture upstream, where a buildup of water pressure meets the weakest point in your plumbing system. That means that the freeze point might be outside in a water spigot or irrigation system, but the burst could be inside your home. Kinnett can help winterize your spigots and outdoor plumbing systems to help prevent frozen pipe disasters inside your home.
