Burst Pipe Repair in Topeka

Fast burst and frozen pipe repair in the Topeka area.

IIf you have never experienced a burst pipe, be thankful. If you have experienced this type of plumbing emergency, you understand the need for a reliable and honest emergency plumber. Although most people think of burst pipes as a winter-only occurrence, these problems can actually happen anytime during the year, for different reasons. When you do encounter a burst pipe, calling a company with a friendly customer service representative on the other end will begin to make the process easier. Once you’ve made the call, one of our skilled technicians will be dispatched to your home to begin repairs. Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air understands the need for a quick response but also aims for your complete satisfaction.

Preventing Burst Pipes

The best way to never encounter a burst pipe is to be aware of when they are most likely to occur and follow certain steps to prevent them. Here are a few steps you can take to avoid having a pipe burst in your home:

  • Direct warm air to colder areas of your home, specifically toward pipes near an outside wall or window
  • Keep one or two faucets running slowly as the constant movement of water will help prevent freezing
  • Leave cabinet doors open for sinks that are located on outside walls (typically your kitchen sink)
  • Disconnect your hose from the outside faucet. Failing to do so can prevent drainage, leaving the device to freeze and break
  • Seal even small air leaks. In extreme cold, a small air leak around electrical wiring, dryer vents, or windows could be enough to freeze a pipe

You may have noticed that these tips pertain to pipes that have burst due to freezing. However, a burst pipe can also occur due to built up water pressure from clogs or blockages as well as corrosion.

How to Handle a Burst Pipe

Chances are, if you follow the above steps, you will not deal with a burst pipe. However, it is still possible for a burst pipe to occur, or for an air leak to be overlooked. Regardless, if you have a burst pipe, you will want to follow certain steps:

  • Turn off the water at the main shutoff valve
  • Turn off the electricity in the area of the home that the burst pipe occurred
  • Call Pat Plumbing, Heating and Air
  • Start removing water–use buckets, mops, towels, and a wet/dry vacuum if needed
