What to do if a Pipe Bursts?

When you are in the midst of urgent plumbing problems, and you’re not sure what to do if a pipe bursts, ensure you don’t panic.

Before you call us in a panic, take a quick assessment of the situation. Don’t worry…if you have no idea what is going on or why you are having a problem, it is our job to figure it out. Some issues are easily fixed while others may be more extensive such as a main line break. When you call us, simply do your best to explain the “symptoms” your house is experiencing.

What is a main line break?

A main line break is a leak or break in the main water pipe that is underground leading from the street into your home.

The plumbing issues you may experience if there is a leak or break in the main line are:

  • water in the street
  • water in the yard
  • water inside your home
  • low water pressure
  • damp drywall, and
  • an unusually high-water bill.

These types of breaks are not common, so if you are experiencing different or less severe issues than those listed, you may have a different problem such as a simple clog or a cracked or broken water pipe in your walls or under your floors. If you are experiencing multiple “clogs” such as your toilet, sink, and shower backing up, it is likely a clogged sewer line. Even though multiple “clogs” may seem catastrophic, it is not necessarily a difficult repair. So, don’t panic…
