Why Did My Pipe Burst?
Burst pipes are quite common, particularly during the winter when the temps drop below freezing. The water in your pipes expands, cracking the metal or damaging seals and joints. This is especially true with your outdoor faucets.
Pipes can also corrode and deteriorate over time, leaving them vulnerable from daily use. Regular pipe inspection is the best way to combat the expense of burst pipe repair.

What to Do When You Find a Burst Pipe
When you first notice a leaking pipe or a puddle of water, there are a few basic things you should do. First, turn off the water. Even if you don’t know the source of the leak, it’s important to stop the flow of water from causing excess damage. Turn off the faucet and shut off the stop tap on the water main if possible.
Second, dry any wet areas to prevent mold and mildew. You might need to place a bucket under any leaking pipes or surfaces. Third, contact a professional. With training and experience, a professional plumber will be able to locate and repair the problem quickly.
