Most of the time, when a homeowner has a plumbing leak, they don’t notice it right away. This is because most plumbing systems are almost entirely hidden from sight. And when it comes to having leaks detected or having the system repaired, you’ll need the expertise and skill of a professional plumber, such as the technicians on our staff.
Then there are other plumbing problems that are a lot more obvious. For example, you might have a broken pipe that sends water gushing into the living spaces of your home. In emergencies such as this one, you’ll need to know what to do. So keep reading for some of our expert tips, to help you be prepared in any plumbing emergency.
Know Where Your Shut-Off Valve Is
Many homeowners don’t know where the shut-off valve is for their water main. In most homes, it’s going to be by the water meter. Be sure to locate yours so that when and if you do have an emergency you can shut off the water right away to prevent further damage.
Assess the Damage
When an emergency occurs, after you have shut off the water, take a look around and asses what exactly you’re dealing with. This will help you when describing the issue to our plumbers over the phone, and we may be able to fix the issue much quicker when we arrive.
