First, you need to stop the water from flowing in and causing further water damage. Go and close the main water valve in order to keep working peacefully on the broken pipes. After closing the valve, also open faucets throughout the home so that the water pressure that has built inside the tubes can be relieved, and with the purpose to drain part of the water so that you can start replacing the broken segment of the pipes.
It is important that you remove the water that flowed from the pipes as soon as possible before it could have caused damage to your floor, walls or furniture. Start mopping all the water out, and then use dryers or vacuums to remove the remaining water.
After that, you will need to repair the broken pipe. You will have to cut out the broken section and will need to have a pipe one size larger that can cover both ends of the cut pipe. You should clean and flux all ends of the pipes then join them. If you have plastic pipes, then you will need to use specialized glue for sticking tubes together, while if you have metal pipes, you will need to solder them together.
It is important that you take extra care with joining the tubes together and with taking care of the damage that the water has done to the home. Sometimes the damage isn’t apparent and you will only be able to see the effects after it’s too late and parts of the wall or flooring need to be replaced.
