Burst Pipe

Need a Burst Pipe Repair in Your Home?

A burst pipe Toronto is no small problem! Whether you find yourself faced with a burst pipe somewhere in your house, a burst copper water pipe or a sewer line pipe burst, there are several important steps you must take.

  1. Contain the leak.
  2. Place buckets or empty storage containers on the ground beneath the leak to catch the water leaving the pipe. (If necessary, place something heavy and water resistant inside the bucket to prevent it from sliding on the wet floor.)
  3. Stop the spread of water by laying down towels or using whatever else you have on hand.

Identifying the Problem

To figure out whether or not you have a leaky pipe, a burst pipe Toronto or some other plumbing issue on your hands, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do I see any signs of water damage on the walls or ceiling in my home?
  2. Are there any puddles in my basement?
  3. Does my plumbing make strange noises when I flush a toilet or use the garbage disposal?

These are just a few ways to spot a plumbing problem or improvement needed in your home. It’s important in such emergencies to have simple plumbing tools ready, such as a plunger and drain solution. A good standard plunger will do, and when it comes to drain solutions, it’s best to buy the very thick type.

Did Your Pipes Freeze in Cold Weather?

When a deep freeze hits, it’s quite common for pipes to freeze, burst or become blocked because there is a lack of water running through them. If a frozen pipe causes a blockage, it’s very likely that it will eventually burst. So if you suspect a frozen pipe in your home, call a plumbing company immediately to avoid a possible burst. To know if your pipes are freezing or frozen, check to see if there is any frost on the pipes and verify that water is flowing out of your faucets.

Puddles & Leaks

Every so often, and particularly after cold winters, it’s a good idea to do a thorough walk-through of your home. Put on some rubber gloves and grab a flashlight. Check your basement and crawl spaces for drips or puddles. If you see any, you probably have a burst pipe somewhere. Even if you only notice slight moisture or dampness, check the area closely for any other signs of water leaking or puddles forming.

Cracks & Stains

Cracks and stains indicate a problem that’s been around for awhile. Starting with the ceilings and walls, examine your home inside and out. If you notice any cracks, water stains or discolouration, all signs point to a burst pipe somewhere on your property that has been leaking for some time and that has already caused damage.
