Emergency Water Shut-Off Procedures

We understand that a water emergency can be incredibly stressful. Knowing what to do before calling a plumber can save you time, money, and further damage to your home. Here are some essential steps to take if you experience a water emergency.

Immediate Actions to Take

When you notice water breaking out somewhere in your house, follow these steps to minimize damage:

Turn Off the Main Water Supply

  • Locate the Main Shut-Off Valve: It’s crucial to know where your main water shut-off valve is located. This valve stops all water flow into your house, preventing further flooding.
  • Turn Off the Valve: Once you find the valve, turn it off immediately. This will halt any water usage within your home until the issue is resolved.

Avoid Using Plumbing Fixtures

  • Do Not Use Showers, Sinks, or Toilets: Avoid using any plumbing fixtures until the problem is isolated and fixed. This helps prevent additional water from entering your home and causing more damage.
