Ever wonder what you should do while waiting for a plumber?

There are some keys points to know while waiting for a plumber. First of all you should know where your main water shut-off valve is located. Below our two pictures of an old and new style shut-off valves. Second, know where your electrical box is located to be turned off if need be. Third, if your have a flood or leak in a certain area on a specific fixture turn off the shut-off valve that goes with that fixture. If you don’t have a shut-off valve on that fixture have a plumber install one. If there is no shut-off valve located on any one fixture make sure you go turn off the main water shut off valve immediately. This won’t solve the problem but it will be the best temporary fix before the professionals arrive. Have the plumbers help you locate all the shutoff valves in your home and have some labels to make life easier in the future. We hope all this information will help you in the future and to make a stressful situation less stressed.
