Article Summary: 

This article is about what to do when your pipes burst. Burst pipes are commonly caused by freezing temperatures, corrosion and pH imbalance, and clogs and pressure. It’s not always easy to tell if your pipes have burst because they are mostly hidden inside walls and ceilings, but there are a few signs to watch out for, such as random puddles, fluctuating water pressure, stains on walls, discoloured or smelly water, unusually high water bills, and sounds behind walls and pipes. If you notice any of these signs, you should check them out immediately. If a pipe bursts, you should turn off the main water and heat, drain your pipes, locate the burst pipe, call a plumber, and make emergency repairs. It’s important to take proactive steps to prevent burst pipes from happening in the first place.
