What to Do in a Plumbing Emergency

You will probably need a plumber, but there are some other steps you need to take first! It’s important to safely secure your property to prevent further damage.

Step 1

You need to turn the water valve off at the source; this is generally under a sink or near the toilet. The quicker you turn it off, the quicker you prevent a flooding disaster.

Step 2

Your water is already off at the source, but to take extra precautions you should locate the mains. You never know what damage the initial problem created in other pipes, so turning the mains off gives you time to uncover any other leaks.

The water mains in apartments are typically found under a sink, you should check beneath the kitchen sink first. If it isn’t there, look around the laundry area. Some buildings may have a box outside the building with mains for each individual unit.

If you live in a house, the water mains are most likely outside near the front of the property under a council plate.

Turn off the water supply at the mains to ensure all water is cut off.

Step 3

If you have a water leak that is near any electrcial appliances, turn off your power supply at the mains power board.
