In Photos: Anatomy of a Ruptured Frozen Pipe

During one of this winter’s particularly harsh cold spells, a pipe froze and burst in an office building at the Coca Cola bottling plant on York Street in Denver.

The pipe was in the ceiling upstairs, so the water from the ruptured frozen pipe intruded on the floors below, taking the entire building out of service. Abbotts was on the scene quickly, containing the water and beginning the drying process practically immediately. As a result, the damage was minimized and the building was only out of commission for a couple of days. When water damage occurs, time is critical. We get there fast and get right to protecting your property. A frigid night and a frozen pipe put a crimp on operations at the Coca Cola bottling plant.

 
Abbotts Fire and Flood Restoration was on the scene fast to get started drying and restoring the large facility right away.
 
A frozen pipe ruptured in the ceiling on the upper floor, spreading water through much of the building.
 
The culprit.
 
Abbotts deployed a broad array of state-of-the-art equipment to dry the building quickly and minimize damage.
 
Of particular concern were various vintage vending machines and other equipment.
 
It wasn’t just about equipment and office space. It was about safeguarding irreplaceable memorabilia.
 
Abbotts crews worked around the clock, continuously monitoring every aspect of the project.
 
Catastrophe works all night. So do we.
 
If you have a frozen ruptured pipe, act fast. Call Abbotts any time, day or night. We’ll be there fast and do the job right.
