Are you prepared for a plumbing emergency? You may not be a plumbing professional, but there are a few things you should know about your home so that if a problem does occur, you know how to handle it before a plumber can arrive.

You should always know where to go when an issue arises. Do you know how to stop a potential flood? Locate the main shut-off valve for the home water supply. If its in a dark, hidden, tough-to-read place, keep any tools you’ll need for a shut-off nearby. There’s nothing like scrambling for the right tools while your kitchen is steadily flooding!

It’s also important to know how to shut off appliances. Investigate how to shut off water to sinks, toilets, washing machines, and other appliances that use water, such as a refrigerator’s ice maker. If there is a problem, knowing the location of the shut-off valve will avoid a lot of headaches.

One last thing. Find the location of the house’s main sewer valve. It provides access to correct a clogged sewer line, and knowing where it is will help the plumber fix the problem faster!

Make sure you find all these shut-off valve locations today, so you know where they are in the future! And if you do find yourself in a plumbing emergency, contact us anytime!
