Plumbing systems are complex and many homeowners are confused about how their home’s plumbing system actually works. When dispatched for a plumbing repair call, we often answer the same types of questions concerning what to do in the event of a home flood, shut-off valves, leaks and clogs.
What Should I Do if there’s Flooding?
If there’s water leaking in your home, it’s important to immediately shut off the main water line and call a professional. While waiting, gather any buckets or empty storage containers to help contain the dripping water and use towels to limit the spread of water as much as possible.
How Do I Shut off the Water?
The main water shut-off valve can usually be found in the basement near the home’s water meter on the wall nearest to the street. It’s crucial to take time to learn where the shut-off valve is, and how to use it before you need to turn it off.
What Causes a Leaky Faucet?
Plumbing leaks are often caused by worn or dirty seals inside faucets. The solution could be as simple as replacing the old seals, but it’s important to have a professional diagnose the leak to ensure a more serious plumbing repair isn’t needed.
What Causes a Clogged Toilet?
While most clogged toilets are caused by too much paper or other sanitary items being flushed down the plumbing system, clogs can also be the result of a much bigger plumbing problem. A professional plumbing technician will be able to diagnose and fix any blockages in the trap, sewer line or drainpipe and get your plumbing system back to normal.
