Burst pipes occur when water in the pipes freeze with 33,000 PSI of force. The expansion causes the pipes to crack; when the ice thaws, water will start to pour out of the pipe and into your home. This can create significant water damage in a short amount of time. If this is happening to you, call your Knoxville burst pipe repair team at Pipe Wrench Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Inc. We will arrive at your property as soon as possible to get the problem under control.

How to Handle a Frozen or Burst Pipe Before Your Plumber Arrives

The first sign that pipes have frozen is restricted water flow, or no water flow at all. If there is still some water flowing through the pipes, check if it is only the hot or cold tap by turning each one off for a few seconds. If both still have water flowing through, turn the faucets up so the flowing water will melt any ice building up in the pipes. Once the water is flowing freely again, you can turn it down, but check it frequently as long as freezing temperatures hold up.

If you have a pipe that is frozen to the point where no water is coming out of the faucet, there is a larger problem. Turn off your home’s main water valve and open all of the faucets. Next, you will need to thaw the pipes. Don’t use a hairdryer or leave electrical heaters unattended. As the pipes start to thaw, water may leak out, putting you in danger of electrocution. Create as much warmth in your home as possible and open up as many cabinets and closet doors as you can to direct the warmth to the walls.

If a pipe has burst and threatening to flood your home, make sure to locate the main water valve and turn it off. This will provide some relief until your plumber arrives.

Available 24/7 for Pipe Burst Emergencies

A burst pipe can turn into a dangerous problem. Call us immediately for 24/7 emergency assistance. We will be at your door as soon as possible.

To solve the problem, we will first locate where the pipe has burst. Then we will remove the damaged section and replace it with new plumbing. How long the repair process takes depends on the location and ease of access of the pipe. Burst pipes under the kitchen sink are quicker and easier to fix than burst pipes within a wall or crawl space.

Can You Prevent Burst Pipes?

It is difficult to predict whether a pipe will burst when it freezes. Even pipes that have frozen and thawed without problems in the past can unexpectedly burst due to a weakened structure. Pipes that are in unheated spaces, along exterior walls, or close to openings such as dryer vents are more vulnerable to freezing.

You can reduce your chances of burst pipe damage by properly winterizing your home, including making sure exposed pipes are insulated from the cold weather. Another way to limit burst pipe problems is to leave the hot and cold water tap running just a trickle during the night; this will keep the water flowing through the pipes.

Avoid extensive water damage and have your burst pipe problems solved right away. Call (865) 583-3957 for 24/7 emergency repair. It’s fixed right the first time or you don’t pay.

What Our Customers Are Saying

"Adam Bunch and Salwan were our technicians. They were very professional, courteous, thorough, and we feel they did a very good job. They were both very personable, friendly, and genuinely take pride in their profession. We feel very confident in the work that they did. We have an older home built in the mid 1980s with old, failing hex water lines along with some copper fittings. We needed new lines installed and they did a good job with it. I would recommend them to other people. In comparison, the price is more expensive than some other businesses in this area for the same work, but we feel that the guarantee that comes with Pipe Wrench work brings accountability. We will use this service again in the future."

Amy C.

"Very timely. The first time I used this service I had a thermostat replaced in my hot water heater. They were quick and professional and was fairly priced. I'm in the middle of my second experience at a relatives home for hot water heater replacement. They were able to get a tech out for evaluation the same day we called (today) about a problem and have scheduled the replacement for the next day. The tech was polite, professional and advised us of all our options in a way that was easily understood. I highly recommend Pipe Wrench services."

Sasha N.

"Ryan and Tyler were fantastic! As soon as they got to our home they set expectations for all the work they were going to perform. They kept us posted on the status of the job throughout the time they were working and reviewed everything with us when the job was complete. They were professional, knowledgeable, and nice. I would highly recommend them and the team at Pipe Wrench for any plumbing needs! Although I hope we won't have to use their services again, if we ever have the need for a plumber in the future, they will be the first people we call!"

Katey M.

"They came on time with texts and calls ahead of time to ensure I knew who was coming (with a picture) and when they'd be there. Kyle was professional, personable and didn't try to sell me more than I needed. He worked with the scheduling to get me scheduled that evening, even though I couldn't be there for the install. The installation was prompt and they were clean (again with forewarning and pictures of who was coming). They are my new go to company. Thank you."

Mary W.

"Our technician showed up on time and very professional. This company never tried to take advantage of my older mom. Which some in the past have. Very thorough in explaining everything he did and the cost. They came the very next morning. My mom’s A/C had gone out the day before on a scorching hot day and week. I would highly recommend this company. Very good people."
