Happy plumber by Goode Plumbing

Are you having problems with split or busted pipes? Bursting can happen at any moment, but more often during wintertime. And when you’re living in Illinois, the weather can be uncompromising. It’s best to know a trusted plumbing service to contact during such emergencies.

Goode Plumbing can do residential and commercial frozen burst pipe repair in Skokie, IL. We have pipe thawing equipment to melt the ice in frozen pipes and lines, making it easier to see the damage and replace it as needed.

More than fixing and replacing the pipes, our professional service includes examining the current state of the lines and recommending a possible solution. The usual reasons for busted pipes are poor chase insulation or the pipes run along an outside wall. A check-up is to ensure so that no such incident will happen again.

Why do pipes burst more during cold temperatures?

Freezing temperatures expand water molecules inside the pipes, causing the pipes to burst. As the water begins to freeze, the pressure builds up. Water will find other areas to flow, usually gravitating towards the faucet. If there are no more areas to expand, the pipe can break or burst.

As a preventive measure, it is good practice to open faucets to allow water to flow regularly. Place insulation in the pipes and water tanks. Keep the heat on indoors, and seal up cracked holes to prevent cold air from entering the house.

What to do if your pipe bursts?

Goode Plumbing doesn’t only do frozen burst pipe repair in Skokie, IL; we can also conduct a routine inspection of your pipes. Check-ups are essential every few months, especially before the cold season arrives. Minor cracks make the lines more susceptible to bursting. But accidents happen, and in case it does, here are a few things to do to prevent further chaos if the pipe bursts:

Close the main water valve right away.

Ensure everyone living in the house knows the location of the main water valve and how to open and close it. In case of a pipe burst, any family member can run to shut the valve off.

Switch off the main electrical panel in case of flooding.

A busted pipe is usually followed by flooding. To ensure that no water gets into any electrical outlets, it is crucial to switch off the main electrical panel.

Call a professional plumbing service to fix the problem.

Never try to fix a busted pipe if you have little experience with leak repair and installation. If you do not have the right equipment for frozen pipes and you try to patch things up, you can do more damage.
