Have you ever dealt with a plumbing leak in your home? If not, you are fortunate, because it can be quite a traumatic experience and it can cause a lot of damage.
While it might be difficult to imagine, you could easily cause this just by careless DIY work.
Whenever you are about to hit a nail into a wall, drill, or saw, you should first make sure there are no pipes behind it, especially if it is near a bathroom or kitchen.
A pipe can discharge about 14 gallons each minute, so if you manage to bust one, you will quickly have a lot of water to deal with. It is a good idea to be aware of where the water shut-off valves are located in your home in case you have to do so quickly. Once there is a hole in your pipe, the pressure is going to prevent you from doing anything to stop it.
