You Have a Plumbing Emergency—What Should You Do?
Most emergencies involve water rushing into your home at high rates, as with burst pipes or overflowing drains. The first thing to do is to turn off your main water supply. The valve for this is usually located outside your home or building. If you are not sure where to look, give us a call and we will guide you in the right direction before we arrive.
A constantly running toilet may require only shutting off the water supply to the bathroom, while a burst pipe in the basement or an outdoor faucet gushing out onto your lawn may require cutting off the water to the entire house.
Once we arrive at your property, we will make sure that the main water valve is shut off properly. We will then gauge the extent of the problem and advise you on what should be done. We will put together a plan of action and let you know what we will be doing, and how long it will take.
