Tips And Tricks Before The Plumber Arrives
Stay Calm and Evaluate The Situation
First step, stay calm and evaluate the situation.
This may seem simple, but a few deep breaths can help you focus on the task ahead.
Take a look at what you see and, if possible, keep in mind any wet spots in the home.
Now, find the water shut-off to your home.
Turn Off Your Water
Find and turn off the water to prevent further damage. In most plumbing emergencies, you need to turn your water off right away to prevent flooding or further damage to your home. In an emergency, it’s usually best to shut off the water to your entire house.
In the San Antonio area, most homes’ main shutoff valves are located outside, near your water meter. You should find it past the meter on the house side, usually in a box just below ground level.
Once you locate the valve handle, simply turn it clockwise until it stops. It’s important that this valve is either in the full on or full off position. It is not designed to be left partially open. San Antonio Water Systems makes shutting of your water simple!
If you have a less urgent leak, you may be able to turn your water off at the fixture rather than losing water supply to your entire house. For your sinks, you can usually see two chrome or plastic stop valves under your sink at the back of the cabinet. You will need to turn off both valves to stop water supply to your sink. Toilets have just a single shut-off valve, which is usually located on the wall right behind the toilet.
Open Drains and Spigots
After you’ve shut off your water at the main valve, there will still be water in the pipes.
To prevent this water from further damaging your home, you need to release the water to the outside. Walk around the exterior of your home and turn on any spigots or water hoses until the water flow stops.
If you notice a clog or backup during this process, try this 3 step guide recommended by San Antonio Water Systems. It is very important that you do not put chemicals down your drains. Harsh chemicals can cause extensive damage to your plumbing system.
Assess the Damage
If you are able to, it’s important to assess the situation before you call us.
Carefully observe the problem area and look for any water leaks. These leaks can be very obvious broken pipes or less noticeable such as slab leaks. You should also feel walls or floors to check if they feel warm or wet. The more information you can provide to us, the better we can be prepared to solve your leak.
It is best to wait for a Reliant plumber so they can look at your home, and then help provide you with a solution that works best for you.
