Fast Rooter Plumbing Explains What to Do When Your Water Pipe Bursts , Honolulu, Hawaii

No sight is more unwelcome to come home to than a flooded house due to a burst water pipe. Although it seems like an unlikely scenario, many homes are impacted with burst pipes due to inclement weather and pressure issues.

It’s hard to know how to act in the face of a plumbing emergency. That’s why Fast Rooter Plumbing, Oahu’s top plumbing service, has assembled a list of things to do to mitigate damage in your home when your water pipes burst:

  1. The first thing you should do is immediately locate your main water supply and turn it off, to prevent more water flooding.
  2. Afterward, find your main electrical supply and turn it off to prevent any appliance damage, or worse, risk of electrocution of your family.
  3. Begin clearing away the mess and close all faucets.
  4. Never attempt to fix the burst pipe on your own. Call a professional plumber to help ensure that all broken pipes are repaired or replaced. You may also want to call an electrician to ensure there is no electrical damage caused by the flooding.

Although it can cause panic initially, taking care of the mess caused by a burst pipe is easy when you let the professionals handle the job. If you ever come across a burst pipe in your home, take a deep breath, follow the steps outlined above, and call the skilled Oahu plumbers of Fast Rooter Plumbing at (808) 734-4938 today!
