How Do I Know If My Pipes Have Frozen and/or Burst?
Your home’s plumbing is one of its most important functions. Without your plumbing functioning properly, perhaps due to a burst pipe, everyone in your household’s day-to-day life could be dramatically affected. An obvious sign of a burst pipe is a huge water leak, but there are some other, more subtle signs that your home’s plumbing may have a burst pipe.
Discolored water coming out of your home’s spigots and faucets can be a sign of a burst pipe. If you have a burst pipe it will rust over time and get dirt in the line as well, which will result in discolored water throughout your plumbing system.
As we all know, mold often develops in a home thanks to unwanted moisture. Therefore, a mold infestation in your home may be a sign of a burst pipe dispersing moisture where it shouldn’t be.
