A plumbing emergency can strike anytime, and nobody wants to be caught off-guard. In a perfect world, you’d have emergency plumbing on speed dial if your water pipe burst or your toilet overflowed at 2 am. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world, but knowing what to do in case of an emergency can help you limit the damage to your property. Read on as JNR Plumbing explains what to do during an emergency:

Get to Safety

In the event of a pipe bursting, for example, your priority should be to make sure that everyone in the vicinity is in a safe place. Make sure you aren’t in danger yourself and get out of rooms with large amounts of water. Never try to fix a pipe while standing in water. You could easily be electrocuted or injured – especially if the leak has caused electrical problems. Leave the repair work to a professional plumber in Greenwich, CT.

Shut Off the Water Supply

In most cases, this involves closing the main shut-off valve for your home – usually located behind your meter. If you can’t find it or aren’t sure how to turn it off, look for a red valve on a nearby pipe under the sink; usually, the pipe will have a large sticker saying “Water Line” or something similar. However, it’s always a good idea to call for plumbing services if you have trouble shutting off your water.

Call a Professional

There’s nothing worse than dealing with a plumbing emergency alone, so try to reach out to a professional plumbing company as soon as possible. Make sure you find an emergency plumber who is fully licensed and insured in your area. This will ensure that the plumber is fully qualified to handle your problem and that they aren’t leaving any loose ends behind.

Plumbing emergencies can strike anytime, and it can be very easy to panic and do something you regret later. However, it’s important to remember what to do in a plumbing emergency because you could save yourself from a lot of unnecessary hassles and expenses.
