What To Do in a Plumbing Emergency
Life’s unpredictable. Bad things happen to the best of us. Sometimes things are out of our control. Like when water decides to rush onto your kitchen floor. Or if your garbage disposal is completely clogged. It’s important to stay aware of your plumbing, water habits, and if anything seems out of the ordinary. Because you might end up with a plumbing emergency.
Most common plumbing emergencies:
- Clogged sinks
- Leaky faucets
- Broken water lines
- Burst pipes
- No hot water
Think you’re facing a plumbing emergency? Here are some tips to follow while you’re running around for extra towels to soak up the water.
- Shut off your water: Every home has a main water shut-off-valve that cuts off the water supply to your entire home. If you suspect something is wrong with your plumbing, shut off the water to keep the issue from getting worse.
- Determine if it’s a true emergency: If you know where the issue is and can try to contain it, try to wait until a plumber can make a regular house call. However, if the plumbing issue brings your entire home to a stop or your house is under water, you’ll need to call an emergency plumber.
- Is it your responsibility?: The emergency or plumbing issue may not be something you can fix or are responsible for. If you can’t locate the source, call your water company and utility provider. They should be able to tell you if the problem affects just your home or if it’s neighborhood wide.
