Broken Water Lines
Broken water lines are a plumbing emergency, but can be handled by the fast-response team from S & B Plumbing, Sugar Land, Texas. If the broken water line is inside your home, the first thing you should do when you discover it is to turn off the main water valve to your home, typically located at the point the water line from the main municipal water line enters your home. Shutting off the main water line will stop water from flowing from the damaged pipe in your home, preventing further water damage. The next thing you should do is call a certified plumber to locate the problem area and diagnose the cause of the broken water line. Knowing this, the plumber can offer you best solutions to fix the problem. If the broken water line is outside your home on the pipe leading from the municipal main line to your home, call a plumber to identify where the break is occurring.
