Why It’s Important to Get a Pipe Leak Fixed on Time

If you have noticed a very small leak in any pipe in your home, it’s never a good idea to neglect to get it fixed on time. This one problem can easily become aggravated and get out of control quickly. A burst pipe can cause a significant amount of water damage to various features on your property. It doesn’t take long for an unattended water leak to cause damage to the drywall, ceilings and timber features as well as paint and other elements like floor coverings.

Pipe Bursts- The Causes

There are a number of different reasons why pipes can burst such as:

  • Regular wear and tear
  • Accidental damage
  • Age
  • Blocked pipes
  • Water pressure changes
  • Deterioration in pipe connectors

While it’s possible to fix minor leaks on your own, it’s never a good idea to try to handle a burst pipe repair on your own. Not only does this job require the right tools and equipment, but also knowledge and experience with different types of pipe materials and how they behave. Older structures generally have copper pipes, but these are rarely used in new plumbing.

When you hire us for your burst pipe repair, our team will first inspect the feature to understand what the extent of the damage is. Since most repairs will be conducted using newer PVC pipes, they will provide you with detailed information about this material and how it can fit into your existing plumbing network.

Signs of a Burst Pipe

While a burst pipe is definitely a plumbing emergency, there are certain signs that you can look out for such as:

  • A trickle of water in the ceiling or walls that gradually becomes stronger
  • The sudden gushing of water in a specific area in your house
  • Large spots of water that spread quickly across ceilings and walls

If you notice any of these signs in your home or commercial establishment, contact us without delay. You are always assured of prompt, reliable and affordable burst pipe repair services.
