7 Warning Signs you may Have a Burst Pipe in Rye

A burst pipe in Rye can be one of the most devastating things to happen to your home. Sometimes you can have a burst pipe and not even realize it for days, or even weeks, down the line. The longer it goes unaddressed, the more significant the damage is going to be, which is precisely why we have put together this article for you. So that you can understand the warning signs of a burst pipe, identify it as soon as possible, and take action to remedy the situation. 

Warning signs that may signify a burst pipe in Rye

Irregular water look and smell

When a pipe bursts beneath the ground or even within your walls, bacteria and contaminants can seep into your water system, changing various elements of the water. You may notice the water from your taps is coming out brown or yellowish. Or, you may see that the water has an off-smell, which multiple things can cause, but one of the most common things is that the water has been exposed to your sewer line. So… you definitely don’t want to drink that. Sometimes rust can get into your water following a burst pipe, affecting your water’s taste, color, and quality. 

Burst pipe in Rye – Fluctuating or low water pressure

If you have a burst pipe, there is a disruption, a clink in the chain, from the water source to your faucet. When this occurs, it can often mean that water will still come out of your faucet, but it will constantly vary in pressure. So, for example, you may notice that you turn the tap on, and all that comes out is a mere dribble of water, so you turn the faucet up to the max, and it’s all of a sudden spurting out water.

Noises inside your walls 

Have you ever heard clanging in your walls? Now, before you call your local ghostbuster, check for other signs of water damage- because you may have a burst pipe. A burst pipe is not a stable object; it’s trying to operate as usual with a major issue. This means you may hear it clanging, attempting to do its job to carry water from point A to point B. Or, you may hear dripping sounds coming from inside the walls, another clear sign of a burst pipe in Rye.

Mold growth

Multiple things can cause mold growth. So, should you discover mold, don’t immediately assume it must be a burst pipe. It could be, but there are other things to consider. Essentially, you want to assess the surrounding area and the purpose of the room. For instance, is the mold in a small patch beneath your sink? Or spread across the middle of your hallway wall? Areas such as under sinks or near washer-dryers, bathrooms, kitchens, and rooms with poor ventilation are at a higher risk of mold growth. If you can’t find a reason for the mold to be there and are noticing other signs listed here, then it’s likely a burst pipe in Rye.

Puddles of water 

One sign of a burst pipe in Rye is if you’re seeing puddles of water collecting in your home. You can usually rule out the option of a dripping tap or connection by tightening your washers. However, if water is still pooling, or there’s no leak or faucet nearby, you could have a burst pipe.

High water bills 

Nobody wants high water bills- especially if you’re not even using all the water you’re paying for. Most people have a bracket of a typical acceptable water bill and notice that it will vary during the seasons. But if you receive a bill that is way off the charts and have no valid reason for why you could have possibly used that much water, it could mean that your pipes have been trying to carry your water to you but are essentially dripping it along the way, due to a burst or broken pipe. 

Water stains

Water stains can appear after flood damage, a leak, or a burst pipe in Rye. If you haven’t experienced the first two recently, then it is most likely a burst pipe within your wall. Those stains will continue to grow until you deal with the issue; burst pipes should always be dealt with ASAP.

What to do if you have a burst pipe in Rye

If you have experienced one, or a collection of the above, then, unfortunately, you probably have a burst pipe. 

The good news is that you’ve identified the problem and can start taking action. Here’s what you can expect to occur next: 

  • Turn off your water supply
  • Call a restoration operator immediately
  • Depending on the extent of the issue, they will assess your situation and likely commence the water removal and extraction and burst pipe cleanup process.

Please be aware of changes within your home and, most importantly, act fast to save your home from severe water damage.
