What to do when you have a broken water pipe

leakMany people have no idea what to do when they are first confronted with a broken water pipe. The immediate thing to do to save damages to your property is to turn off the water at the mains. This will stop all flow of water throughout the property and allow you to inspect the problem.

Depending on the damage from the broken water pipe and the type of pipe it is, it really is best to let the professional plumbers do their job.

Adding tape around a pipe can possible be a short term fix, but with water being under pressure this tape will not hold for long and will eventually fail allowing more water to be sent throughout your house.

If you have a broken pipe, call Fairy Meadow Plumbing who will be out to fix it in a flash.
