BURST OR BROKEN PIPES

What you do when you discover a burst pipe can make the difference between an inconvenience or a total disaster. Be alert for the signs of Burst Pipes. Damp spots on walls, ceilings or floors, loss of water pressure, a hissing sound or the sound of water running continuously are all possible indications of a burst water pipe.


If you suspect a burst pipe then the first thing you ought to do is turn off the main water supply to prevent further water loss and consequential damage to property. The stopcock to turn off the water mains is often located outside your home. If water is still pouring from the taps, despite having turned off the water main supply, the water is in all likelihood draining from the geyser. In such a case switch off the electricity to the geyser to prevent possible damage to the element. Clean the excess water away as soon as possible the quicker the water is removed the less damage can be caused. Finally and most importantly give us a call!
