Burst Pipe Leak
Signs of a burst pipe leak
A burst pipe leak can turn into a serious problem if left unchecked.
A burst pipe leak is hard to detect because water tends to travel under the floor or up the walls of your house. You may not even realize a potential hazard is present until it’s too late.
Indicators that can help you determine if you have a burst pipe leak in your home:
If you detect any of these problems, it is best to address the issue as soon as possible.
What are the most common causes of a burst pipe in the Chicago Metropolitan area?
Burst pipes are quite a common problem during the Chicago wintertime.
Common Causes of Burst Pipes
While freezing temperatures are a common cause, burst pipes can be caused by many different factors such as high water pressure, tree root encroachment, clogs, and corrosion.
It is important to know what causes burst pipes so that you can identify a problem in need of an immediate fix.
Freezing Pipe Lines
We regularly get an influx of burst pipe jobs during the winter months when temperatures drop below freezing.
Water pipes that are exposed to high winds with below-freezing temperatures can easily freeze and then burst.
The Dangers of Do-It-Yourselfers
During the non-winter months, we usually get do-it-yourselfers who drill a hole in a wall without knowing there is a water pipe behind the drywall, in effect causing a man-made pipe burst.
About one week ago, we had a high-end closet installer drill into a wall to mount some shelving units.
The installer accidentally drilled a hole into a hot water pipe and caused a huge mess! There was water everywhere and it caused a lot of damage!
The Rescue Team had to open the drywall to expose the piping and replace the section of punctured water pipe with a new section of pipe.

ProPress Machine – Fast, Effective, and Healthy
One great thing about Rescue Plumbing is that every truck has a pro press machine and is fully stocked with ProPress fittings.
ProPress is new and advanced plumbing technology that eliminates the need to weld pipe or use acid to make copper joints.
The major benefit of using the pro press is a reduction in installation time and negative health consequences. No more breathing in gas fumes for the plumber or customer while using flux to make the solder run into a fitting joint.
Welding water pipes can be harmful to one’s health. Every plumber and apprentice here at Rescue Plumbing has taken the official Viega ProPress certification course.
