Pipe Burst: What Should You Do?

Pipe Burst Repairs
Imagine returning home to a burst pipe. You see your house literally flooded with water, and you stand there clueless to what actually happened.

It is so deadly, even in imagination, right?

Such mishaps call for critical, time-sensitive measures to be taken immediately. Do you know what you should be doing if a pipe bursts at your place?

Here are three steps you should ideally be taking:

The very first step you should do is shut down your water supply to that particular line. Go to the major water faucet in the house and turn it off as soon as possible. Additionally, the power should be turned off in the area of the house where the flooding has happened.

After that, do a thorough inspection. Even if the source of the broken water pipe leak is just a broad region, make an effort to determine where the leak originated. If the pipe is located within your home, remove any standing water as soon as possible to prevent further water accumulation.

Meanwhile, you are evaluating stuff, call an emergency plumber to your place as soon as possible.

Call in the professionals to perform the restorations and repairs.

Make an appointment with a competent plumber to repair and replace any broken pipes, and if you see any disruption to your power system, you must call in a professional technician.

Toilet flusher broke on me this morning. Communication with this company was great! Nick reached out to me first with a rough timeframe when someone would be around (same day). That someone was Gary, who first called asking for more details and I was I was able to provide photos. He gave me a more specific timeframe for his arrival, which he stuck to, and then he showed up with all the parts and tools he needed on hand, knowing exactly what needed to be done, no surprises. He was fast, professional, friendly, and cleaned up everything when he finished. Highly recommended! Cheers Gary!

We called Pinnacle Plumbing when we discovered a very serious water leak at our house, and we happily recommend them to anyone in Brunswick East and the surrounding suburbs. Despite contacting them after hours, Jay arrived within half an hour of my call and was able to quickly identify the problem, prevent it from becoming a total disaster, and tell me what needed to be done. Jay and Gary were back at 7am the next day, and within a few hours they had found the source of the leak (which was hidden underneath concrete slabs) and fixed it. They also tidied everything up beautifully. They are both lovely, and we will definitely use Pinnacle for any future problems and will recommend them to our friends. Thank you Jay and Gary!
