Solving Burst Pipe & Other Pipeline Problems

An old or damaged pipe may burst if it isn't fixed in a timely manner. As pipes age, they will start to weaken structurally. In some cases, accidents, clogs, or other problems can damage the pipe and cause it to eventually split open.

A burst pipe is a dangerous problem that can become a catastrophe if it isn't fixed as quickly as possible. Burst pipes have a few different causes, and it's difficult to fix them without the help of a professional. At L.E. Isley & Sons, we are dedicated to fast and efficient burst pipe repairs for residents in Boon, Harrison, and Indianapolis Counties. We’ll help you prevent your problems from turning into disasters.

Winterize Your Pipes to Prevent It from Bursting

As winter approaches, make sure any exposed pipes are properly insulated. You may also consider having a professional reroute pipes that are in especially vulnerable areas. If you notice that one of your pipes is leaking even a little water, get it fixed immediately before the problem worsens. We can also provide an inspection of your home's entire plumbing system to locate any other possible problems before they develop into larger ones.

5 Signs You Need Pipe Repair

1. Cracked wall paint - If you have a slight leak you might not always be lucky enough to get a visible water stain. But since water pressure can crack paint, watch out for any new cracks and let our Indianapolis pipe repair experts know what you notice.

2. A water meter that's moving after you've turned off the water - One good way to test if you have a leak is to turn off all the water on your property and head to the water meter. You shouldn't be using any water and if you are then there's a leak somewhere on the property.

3. That smell of mold or mildew - In situations pertaining to pipe repair, mold and mildew growth are completely natural. This happens because the recipe for mold is standing water in areas with no proper ventilation, like where your water pipes are.

4. Visible water stain - If you're lucky the leak will be in an area that's visible in your everyday routine. Make sure to call in our Indianapolis pipe repair experts sooner rather than later because these problems can get more expensive to repair the longer you wait.

5. A high water bill - The worst way to find out you have a leak is through your water bill. If you haven't changed your water consumption but you're facing an incredibly high water bill then give us a call. While we can't fix your water bill, we'll see to it that it doesn't happen again.

Signs that You Need to Replace Your Existing Pipes

When a section of piping has suffered a leak, repairing the damaged pipe may be the best way to go. If you've noticed leaking in several areas of your home, your plumbing system may be better served with a full repipe. Repiping will help increase the value of your home, making it more enticing to prospective buyers. It will also help increase the comfort of your home.

You will likely benefit from a repipe if you've noticed any of the following:

  • Persistent leaks
  • Water damage
  • Mold growth
  • Water discoloration

Copper vs. PEX Pipes

PEX piping, or cross-linked polyethylene, is one of plumbing's latest innovations. It is touted for its pliability and affordability. PEX is less expensive than copper pipes and it resists corrosion.

Thanks to its flexibility, PEX pipes can withstand much more stress than traditional copper pipes and can be used as a selling point if you're preparing your home for the market. Furthermore, PEX pipes are much more resistant to freezing than copper pipes.

However, copper pipes haven't been completely replaced. Copper still finds its place in outdoor applications. Plus, this material is easily recycled.
