Before starting the repair process, we will make sure your main water valve is turned off. An emergency repair can be made with a length of hose if the pipe is not under pressure.
There are several repair options when it comes to burst pipes such as:
When temperatures dip below freezing, the pressure of water freezing and then thawing in your pipes can cause them to burst. Since water expands as it freezes and turns into ice, substantial pressure is placed on the inner walls of the pipe, leading to ruptures.
If you have not taken the proper steps to winterize your plumbing, you may encounter this problem. Any flowing water in exposed pipes can still freeze and end up bursting. In addition, significant pressure can be put on your pipes if there is a clog. This can also lead to bursting. Fortunately, you can avoid this problem with regular maintenance.
Consider installing the proper insulation to protect any exposed pipes. Check to make sure both cold and hot water pipes are insulated.
Some materials you can use for insulation include:
Any water remaining in the pipe can expand without bursting the pipe so you should keep your outside valves open. It is also a good idea to open outside hose bibs and allow water to drain.
