Steps to Save Your Home in a Plumbing Emergency

Water can damage your home and it can do it fast! If you have a pipe that bursts or another plumbing emergency, you can end up replacing floors, walls, furniture, clothing, and more. However, there are a few things you can do to save your home. Take action at the first sign of an emergency and you can save yourself thousands of dollars worth of damage. CALL NOW!

Turn Off the Water Supply

If your emergency is in a sink or a toilet where there’s a knob to shut off the water just to that area, turn it off as fast as you can. If your leak is somewhere else or you can’t find the knob, get to your main shut-off valve as soon as possible. This can be a round knob or a lever and is usually located close to the rest of your utilities. If you have a basement utility room, look there first. If you can’t find it, look through the rest of your basement. It may also be in your garage or even outside your house, especially in older homes. 

If you are reading this in the middle of your plumbing emergency, stop now to turn off your water supply. Then come back for more instructions. If you aren’t having a plumbing emergency but you’re not sure where your main water supply valve is, go find it when you’ve finished reading. You’ll be glad you did if you ever have water spraying everywhere!

Stop Using Water

Once your water supply is turned off, water won’t be flowing into your house anymore. Stop using water entirely. This means no getting drinks from the fridge, no showers, no dishwashing or toilet flushing, NOTHING. Trying to use water when the main valve has been turned off can damage your home and your pipes even further. It can also harm appliances, like your dishwasher or washing machine. Instead, ask your neighbor if you can borrow their bathroom until help arrives or take your clothes to a laundromat for a few days.

Trust in Turner’s

    Friendly and courteous, went beyond the initial problem to check all factors that may have contributed to my heating issue. Joe took several extra steps to isolate the issue and spent the necessary time to check all factors, from thermostat to element.

    We woke up on this cold morning with a broken furnace. Called Turners and they were out within a couple hours, found the issue, and repaired immediately. So pleased we won’t have to suffer the cold with no heat! Tim was awesome, super friendly, and would welcome his work anytime!
