Maintaining you plumbing can be difficult to keep up on but there comes a time when it can’t be ignored anymore. That time is when your plumbing begins developing cracks. POM Plumbing is here to talk about how we can repair cracked pipes quickly to prevent disaster in your home.
Finding the Cracks
The first step to repairing cracks in plumbing is knowing that there are cracks and where they are. If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of finding a leak in your home, you may already know where they are. However, if you’re dealing with water damage below the second floor or in the basement, it may take a little searching around.
POM Plumbing has a fantastic group of professionals who have been repairing cracked pipes for years. Whoever is sent out to help you with your plumbing problem will start with finding the source.
Gaining Pipe Access
Next up is gaining access to the pipes. If the affected plumbing is in the wall or between floors, it may require some drywall removal. If the drywall has sustained water damage, it will need to be replaced anyway to avoid mold problems in the future.
However, not all pipes are hard to reach. Many of them are exposed, such as those under the sink and those in an unfinished basement. In those cases, fixing the problem is even faster. If your sink is dripping water in the cabinet below it, don’t hesitate to give us a call and we’ll get it fixed up in no time.
Assessing the Damage
Next up is checking out what kind of damage we’re dealing with. If the pipe is burst completely, it will need to be replaced. On the other hand, we can repair cracked pipes quickly with the right approach. The typical solution is using a rubber sleeve or wrap. By coating the crack in epoxy and then slipping a tight, rubber sleeve around it, we ensure it won’t crack further. The sleeve keeps the pipe from expanding outward at the cracked point. That’s great for keeping a cracked pipe from turning into a burst one. After all, the last thing you need is a flood in your house because a pipe gave out.
