Immediate Steps to Take for Burst Pipes
With the potential for hundreds, or even thousands, of gallons of water spread to throughout your home or business, the damage caused by freezing pipes can be devastating. When water freezes in a pipe, it can exert up to about 3000 psi in outward force on the walls of the pipe it is this force that causes damage to the pipe. If a pipe bursts, immediately shut off the water at the water main (usually next to the meter or at the fuse or switch to the pump (for well-fed systems).
This step will stop the flow of water and allow you time to assess the situation. When you locate the pipe in question, depending on the pipe material, you may find either a split, crack, break, or even a fitting that has been pushed off. However, you may have trouble locating the frozen pipes if they are within walls or other difficult to reach cavities.
