Broken Pipe Water Damage – Gushing Water Coming from Inside My Walls?
Every home and business has water pipes, sewer pipes and lots of other pipes, and unfortunately they can leak and break and create quite a mess!
The most common form of water that seems to be coming through your walls is either a leaking drain pipe, taking water away from your showers, sinks, etc. or a water pipe feeding water to your sinks, showers, etc. – the latter being much more serious. If a water pipe bursts, there is not much you can do about it except very quickly go and shut off the main water feed valve to your home. If you do not know where this is, you need to call a plumber ASAP. This water will not stop flowing until that water is turned off. If it is drain, simply do not use whatever is there until the plumber finds the drain leak.
One thing that you need when this happens is a company to come to your aid — fast!
