burst pipesOur phones ring off the hook every time there is a change of season, especially when the cold weather of fall and the bitterly cold weather of winter make a surprising, sooner-than-expected appearance. People get caught off guard. We understand this. All those common-sense preventative measures you meant to get to somehow fell through the cracks. When problems arise, the smartest call to make is often to a professional plumber.

Among the many jobs that should be left to a professional plumber is fixing a pipe that has cracked or burst. Now that sounds like an easy repair, right?

Unfortunately, pipe repair or replacement are not as easy as you think, especially if you haven’t had much experience doing these kinds of repairs. We have received many calls over the years from homeowners who somehow turned a small plumbing problem into an expensive repair. It would have been easier and less expensive for them if they had just called us from the beginning.

Most homeowners have no or little experience fixing pipes that have cracked or burst. Nor do they have the parts on hand to make the necessary repairs. And let’s face it: have you ever made just ONE trip to the hardware store to find the parts you need? Not likely. Multiple trips mean wasted time and money. Most homeowners would rather guess when it comes to buying a part or a tool rather than have to come back to the store a second or third time. Often, that means money goes down the drain.

Finally, there is tremendous psychological pressure when you have a major leak. You’ve shut down your main water valve, and now the clock is ticking. You’ve got to get this repair done fast! There’s simply no time for on-the-job training. Not having water is inconvenient. Not having water for 10 or 15 hours is a major inconvenience for everyone in the house.

Think about what you’re going to do if you experience this kind of problem. We think you’ll agree that calling The Plumbing Source is that best decision you can make.
