Repairing Winter Frozen Pipes And Flood Bust Pipes
Since pipes are responsible for taking water in and out of your home, they should always be kept in good condition. If you have noticed that your water pressure is not as strong as it used to be, the problem could be with an old or broken pipe. However, if you need to repair frozen pipes in Athens, do not attempt to do so with a flammable device.
How Do I Fix A Burst Pipe?
When you have a burst pipe in your home, it can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in water damage if you know how to do a quick and easy fix to buy time before the plumber can arrive. No matter what, the first thing you should do is shut off the water at the main valve.
- Wrap the pipe tightly in duct tape. In some cases, this will apply enough pressure to temporarily stop the leak. If this doesn’t work, it’s time to bring out a new set of tools.
- Place a piece of rubber over the leaking area, and place a small block of wood on top.
- Take a C-clamp and use it to secure the wood and rubber to the pipe. Fasten the clamp down until it’s tight enough to hold in place.
For Larger Leaks:
- Make sure you have a sleeve clamp that exactly fits your pipe.
- Place a piece of rubber down on the pipe, and fasten the two halves of the clamp around it and the pipe.
- Use a screwdriver to connect and tighten the two halves of the clamp.
