How to Tell if a Pipe Bursts in Your Home

When it comes to the convenience level in your home, few factors play as important a role as your indoor plumbing system. Of course, a pipe burst can seriously disrupt the flow of life in your home, as well as that of the water therein. The pipe burst repair technicians at Resolve Rooter have the tools and training necessary to ensure that your burst pipes are found, inspected and repaired or replaced promptly to minimize disruption to your daily life. Before that can happen, obviously, you must first be made aware of the burst pipe.

Here are a few tips to help you determine if a pipe has burst in your home.

In certain situations, a burst pipe should be pretty easy to spot. If, for instance, a pipe near your sinks, toilets or showers should burst, you may notice the pooling water or leak with a quick visual inspection. Even if the source of a leak is obvious, though, it is necessary to contact a professional leak detection technician. If you have a leak in one area of your plumbing system, who’s to say that another has not developed out of sight?

Even for those burst pipes not immediately identifiable, there are signs which can indicate the presence of such a problem. You may notice that there are wet spots on your carpet or at the bottom of your walls. If mildew or mold begins to develop, the moisture introduced to the environment by burst pipes may be to blame. You may even hear any unidentifiable sound of running water throughout your house. A drop in water pressure or an increase in monthly water bills with no additional usage could also point to a burst pipe. The only way that you can determine with certainty if a pipe burst is to blame for your problem is to schedule service with a professional plumber.
