Burst Line Services in St. Louis and Surrounding Areas

Winters in St. Louis and the surrounding areas are cold, and that can lead to serious problems with your commercial plumbing system. Water stuck in the pipes might freeze, which will stop them up, and if you’re not careful, they might burst and cause untold amounts of damage. Burst pipes are particularly troublesome for St. Louis and surrounding areas' businesses, because they mean a serious disruption in work until they can be repaired.

Our trucks are among the best stocked in the area, which means we can take care of 90% of the problems we encounter immediately. We can also install preventive measures and identify problems spots in your commercial plumbing, designed to keep water from freezing in the system in the first place. Call us today and let us get to work. Performance Plumbing: Where Your Problem Is No Problem.

The Problem with Frozen Pipes

Any pipe in your commercial system that is exposed to cold weather can be vulnerable to freezing. That especially applies to outdoor pipes from your sprinkler system and the like, but can also affect indoor pipes that run through areas without adequate insulation.

When water freezes, it expands. When it freezes in pipes, it puts an inordinate amount of pressure on those pipes. Not only does that shut off water from the affected outlet, but if the pipe bursts, it could severely damage any surrounding material, and put your business on the hook for a big expense.

Moving Swiftly to Handle Burst Lines

Burst lines can disrupt your entire operation, and when you spot them you need to be able to move fast. Otherwise, the damage could spread, and until it’s fixed, it may bring your entire operation grinding to a halt. A plumber needs to arrive fast and make an accurate appraisal of the situation.

Commercial plumbing is our specialty here at Performance Plumbing, and our team has the training you need to get the job done right. We move fast, even in the face of our St. Louis and surrounding areas winters, and we can work overnight to fix the problem without further disrupting your operations. Call on us today and let us know how we can help!

An Ounce of Prevention Beats a Pound of Cure

Fixing a burst pipe is one thing, but we want to do more than that. That means identifying spots in your commercial plumbing system that may be vulnerable to burst pipes and making recommendations on the best way to protect them. That can involve anything from insulating the pipe in question to performing winterizing operations every fall to keep your outdoor plumbing in proper shape.

Here, too, the benefits of a professional plumbing service become apparent. Our team can perform a thorough inspection of your system, and identify potential problem spots, then enact preventive measures before the weather gets too cold. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure as they say, and in this case, it can save your business a lot by stopping burst pipes before they start!
