Burst pipes? Take action.
Because we care about our clients and their valuable assets, we would like to provide you with a few tips for those bursting moments. The first step you should take before Mackay Plumber Services arrive at your home or office is to turn off the water supply - especially if the burst is huge and threatens to damage other structures in and around your property. Next, open your taps. It will ease the pressure that has built up and which led to the burst in the first place. Don’t worry about the mess it has caused, we will assist you in cleaning up the wet mess after we have fully repaired your pipes.
You can perform a quick pressure check by simply opening your tap and observing how the water flows out. If the pressure is too low, you might have pipes that are partially blocked which could result in burst pipes. Give us a call and we will perform a quick service and check for any clogged pipes. And sometimes it might be necessary to completely replace or overhaul your constant pressure system. In the event that water spurts out your taps, it means the pressure in your pipes are too high. Not certain at what force water should be running out of your taps? No stress, we have got a solution for you. Contact us to schedule a water pressure test and adjustment.
