When a pipe breaks, it is very important to get it repaired quickly. Doing so minimizes the damage and allows the household to get back to living a normal life as quickly as possible.
If the pipe is in an easy to reach position, the repair can be carried out quite quickly. On the other hand, if the pipe is buried in a wall or slab the repair can turn out to be much more complicated.

Plumbers can now use cameras to locate the exact spot where a pipe has burst, which makes repairing the problem far easier and less disruptive.
