Steps To Take In Case of a Burst Pipe On Your Property

Water pipe bursts are a common plumbing problem. When they occur, property owners can find it extremely challenging to deal with them. Old and deteriorated pipelines can sometimes develop cracks, which ultimately result in a burst, in case they aren’t fixed on time.

We at SPS Plumbers handle all types of burst pipe jobs and cater to residential and commercial clients across Sydney. We recognise the fact that a burst pipe is a plumbing emergency, and we are on call 24/7 to provide prompt and efficient plumbing services. Pipes generally burst due to excessive water pressure, deterioration, or if they haven’t been insulated correctly.

Cold weather can sometimes take its toll on the pipes that have not been insulated well and cause them to burst. When you are faced with this kind of an emergency, you need to be aware of what to do. Here is some information that will help.

Steps to Take 

  • One of the first things to do is to locate where the burst pipe is.
  • Look out for water spraying out of a pipe or dripping continuously.
  • You can also check whether there are any damp spots on the walls.
  • Sometimes you will notice the pooling of water in certain areas where there is a burst pipe.
  • If you feel there is a sudden water pressure drop in a particular area, check whether there is any water seeping out rapidly between tiles.
  • Mould and mildew growth is also an indication of moisture and humidity, which can be caused by burst pipes behind walls.
  • Almost all properties have plumbing access panels, and you can access the area closest to where you think the burst pipe is.
  • Inspect the entire pipeline for signs of leaks.
  • It is also essential to turn the water metre off if you find that there is a burst pipe.
  • Call a local Sydney plumber without delay; they will send out a 24/7 emergency plumber to your location.
  • If the leak is anywhere close to electrical points, turn off the circuit that supplies electricity to that area.
