Burst water pipes – repairs

Once the water is turned off, you can begin to assess the damage and start to make repairs.

If your water pipe bursts, you might be able to repair it as well. This is one of the most dangerous and expensive parts of owning a home so make sure you take all necessary precautions to avoid any additional damage.
Luckily, there are some simple and inexpensive things you can do to prevent further damage to your pipes or even repair them if they did break. Removing the plug from the faucet will stop any water from leaking into your home.

Removing the plug from the bathtub will stop water from leaking into the bathroom when filling it with water. The first step is removing the plugin in order to begin repairs, so before doing that, try turning off all plumbing systems in your home and see if any leaks were spotted before you turned them on. If not, turn on all plumbing systems and turn off all faucets immediately after turning them on. If there was a leak before you turned on any plumbing systems, turn on all plumbing systems immediately after turning them on, otherwise, it can cause an explosion that could kill you.

Once your pipes have been repaired, you should start inspecting them again for leaks. This time you should check for a slow leak or excessive leakage at different spots in your pipes from various angles and also observe if there was a crack present in the pipe when this happened or if there was a crack present during repair by using metal detectors or similar tools such as de-spiraling pliers for example. All of this will help tell whether more repairs need to be done or not and also determine where more repairs should be done primarily.
