Things To Remember During Emergency Plumbing

Plumbing issues have a way of springing up when you least expect them. Although you can sometimes afford to delay repairs, most require immediate attention. While calling Zack’s Best Service Inc. is the best you can do in an emergency plumbing situation, there are still some things you can do to control the situation until we arrive.

Here are some of the things you need to remember during plumbing emergencies:

Turn Off the Water Supply

Before contacting your trusted plumber in Menifee, CA, ensure you shut off the valve supplying water into your house. Doing so will help regulate flooding and prevent further damage to your property. However, if only one toilet or sink is affected, you can simply turn off the affected valve. Leaking appliances like dishwashers also have inlet valves that can be turned off to control the situation temporarily.

Switch Off the Water Heater

Serious emergency plumbing situations often affect the water heater. Always remember to turn off the heater to prevent damage to the unit. You may do so by turning off the valve furnishing water to the appliance. It also ensures the heater doesn’t overheat, which can cause the valve to burst. If your water heater uses gas, remember to turn off the gas supply first.

Block Children and Pets From Accessing the Area

As you wait for the plumbing company to arrive, keep children and pets away from the affected area. This is important, especially if you suspect that the sewer line has contaminated the main water supply. Sewage may result in severe health problems for those exposed to them. Protect your family by keeping them away from contaminated regions.

Call and Listen

Some people fail to call plumbers during emergencies. The situation can be distressing and confusing, but you are better off in the hands of an expert who knows how to handle the problem. Always contact trained and certified personnel for plumbing repairs.
