Burst pipes are a very frequent plumbing issue, that are some times quite difficult to deal with. Please see below a 4 step process of what adko plumbing recommends you do in the event of a burst pipe & how you would identify one.
STEP 1: Look for the signs!
In some cases in may be a concealed leak, so look for any signs of water stains on the wall or sometimes if it’s a bad leak or burst pipe you can actually hear the water coming out of the pipe in the wall.
In other cases you may receive a higher water bill than usual.
STEP 2: Check your meter to confirm.
Turn all taps, washing machines & dishwasher off in your house, then go to your water meter & see if it is still ticking over. If it is, then you have a leak & you need to call us.
STEP3: Turn water off from meter.
Its important that you turn the water meter off to cut off the main water supply to your house to prevent any further damage & water wastage until the plumber arrives.
STEP 4: CALL ADKO PLUMBING ASAP
