Frozen And Broken Pipe Repair Services Waterford
The damage caused by freezing pipes can be devastating, with hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water dispersed throughout the home. If this happens to you, immediately shut off the water to the home at the Water Main usually located right at the meter. If your home is on a well, locate the fuse or switch to the pump and shut it off. These steps will stop the flow of water and allow you time to assess the situation. When water freezes in a pipe it, can exert up to about 3000 psi in outward force on the walls of the pipe; it is this force that causes damage to the pipe. When you locate the pipe in question depending on the pipe material you may find either a split, crack, break or even a fitting that has been pushed off.
