When you have a burst pipe in your home, what is the first thing that goes through your mind? Do you start thinking of how you need to call a plumber? Are you worried that you need to get the leak fixed quickly so you will be able to get back to your normal schedule? Are you worried about all of your possessions that are now in danger of getting soaking wet from all of the gallons of water gushing out of the leak and onto your floors? What should be going through your head when you see that you have broken plumbing issues is: “I’ve got this.”
You can handle the immediate situation after a broken pipe by yourself, and handling it can be very easy. The first think that you need to to when a pipe has burst in your home and water is spilling into the home itself is getting the leak stopped. First of all, turning off the water main will make sure that all water is cut off to your home; while this won’t immediately stop the flow of water into the house, at least it will minimize the amount of water that is coming in and minimize the possible damage that the water can cause. The next think you need to do is call a plumber, though depending on the plumbing contractor, this could take days or even up to a week to get fixed. The best option for you right away is to fix the leak yourself until a professional can make it out to perform the professional repairs.
Fixing an Immediate Leak with Perma-Wrap
Perma-Wraps are extremely easy to use and are guaranteed to fix the leak immediately with a waterproof seal. While this may not be a long-term solution to ensure that no other leaks are sprung, it will work quickly to seal the pipe, allowing you to once again turn on the water to the area and still use your water until a professional plumber makes the final fixes or replacements.
Simply having a Perma-Wrap or multiple packages stored in your home at all times will leave you able to deal with the immediate after-effects of a plumbing leak and save your valuables from getting flooded out. This is important due to the fact that not all homeowners insurance policies will cover you from water damage from broken pipes. If that water destroys furniture, flooring, electronics or anything else, you may be simply out your cost. With Perma-Wraps stored in your home before a leak happens, you can be sure that you can quickly get the leak fixed yourself in moments, before any real damage is done.
