Must have water. Crunchers? Things will eventually level out and all will be right. But when?

How bad is it? Did they burst at a seam, or what happened?

lots of pinholes at high pressure...
ended up cutting water off and taking entire length out and replaced it with pvc.

as for the crunchers...i think i was pulling too many amps from one circuit.

Gotcha. I worry about those little pinhole things on my copper pipes. I've got a couple of them, from seeing mineral deposits on the pipes, but they have been self-sealing.

no such luck here...fortunately i had a cabinet door open
or the water would have hit the breakers.

still running towels thru the dryer from soaking up all the water.

i'm having a heck of a month.

I'm sorry to hear that, Phud. I have inside and outside plumbing insurance though the local water company. It covers my outdoor water supply pipe and sewer line on my property, plus a leak situation inside, and clogged drains - which I have used - and it's great - no deductible.
