You spent a pleasant day kayaking at Three Sisters Springs yesterday only to come home to a disaster. Your kitchen was flooded because a water pipe had burst.
If that ever happens, the first thing to do is to cut off the water, according to bulldogadjusters.com. Your second step is to try to cut off the electricity to the part of the house that’s been flooded. You should also call a trusted plumbing expert, like the plumbing pros at Billy the Sunshine Plumber, for help – no matter the day or time.
Pipes can burst for many reasons – the most common, bulldogadjusters.com says, is freezing temperatures. Yes, this IS Florida but sometimes the temperatures do drop. And pipes can also burst when they become old and corroded. Or because they aren’t secure enough and move around when the water is turned on and off.
“This movement can eventually damage the pipe and the pipe can burst.” bulldogadusters.com says. “If you hear hammering or thumping when your water is turned on or off, your pipes may need to be secured.”
At some point, you’re also wondering how you could have prevented a burst pipe.
You can take steps to make sure they’re insulated against temperature drops. And, if you go away for long periods, you should cut off the water to your home. Maintenance is one of the best preventives. Be sure to have your plumbing regularly inspected for signs of breaks, rust, cracks, or other structural issues.
