700 Gallons of Water
This is what 700 gallons of water can do to your ceiling. This Sumner County resident had a pipe burst in his kitchen ceiling, which caused 700 gallons of water to intrude into the home. The result of this broken pipe, left the kitchen ceiling falling in, the flooring and kitchen cabinets in need of removal and repairs to be completed. Although 700 gallons is a lot of water, it surprisingly does not take long for a broken pipe to produce that many gallons of water. You can loose from 50 – 100 gallons per minute if your pipe is broken.
