We’ve all had to deal with a leaky faucet, a clogged drain, or a slow running toilet. Sometimes, however, a true emergency plumbing situation can occur. These situations are not something to wait for and can cause severe damage if they aren’t addressed immediately.
STOP WATER USE
Turn off your water supply immediately if there is any evidence of water leaking from your home. Toilets, for example, will have shutoff valves. You may need to shut down the entire water supply to the house at the main valve.
SAVE ON APPLIANCES
Your home’s largest appliance that uses water is the water heater. It is possible to cause damage if left on. Turn off any gas heaters and turn off the power before you do this
CLEAN THE ARENA
It’s a smart idea to drain as much water from your body as possible. The next step is to collect any water remaining using buckets or buckets. A dry/wet shop vacuum can help remove large amounts of water.
