BURST PIPE REPAIR

A burst pipe is one of the most serious and upsetting plumbing emergencies. Fortunately, the trained professionals at Dependable Service Plumbing & Air can repair this problem quickly and help you minimize damage to your home.

What Causes a Burst Pipe?

Pipes can burst for several different reasons. In some cases, pipes burst because of a tree root that has wrapped around it. Pipes may also burst because of corrosion, or they may collapse because of environmental changes. Regardless of the cause, prompt professional attention is essential.

What to Do When a Pipe Bursts

A burst pipe can cause severe water damage very quickly, so it’s important to take action quickly when you see that a pipe has burst. Burst pipes are serious and should be left to the professionals at Dependable Service.

To minimize damage there are a few steps you can take before the professionals arrive. The first thing you need to do is stop the flow of water. The easiest way to do this is to shut off the water supply to your home.

After you have turned off the water, turn on all of the cold taps in your home to allow the water to drain. Shut off the hot water heater and turn on all of the hot water taps to drain off more water. Be sure to flush all of the toilets in your home to finish draining the water.

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
