Our plumbers are ready to respond immediately to an emergency in your home or business, no matter the time of day or night.
If you’re experiencing a plumbing emergency, particularly any that involve large amounts of water accumulating and the risk of water damage, it’s vital to know where your water shut-off valves are. This will allow you to stop major damage before it becomes too severe, allowing our plumbers to more easily assess and remove any issues once they arrive. Here are some basics to know in this area.
The main water shut-off valve is the primary one you need to know about. This valve is usually located near the perimeter of the home on the ground floor, or in the basement if your home has one.
Generally, water lines run from the water main to the shut-off valve – there are no detours or extra piping involved here. If you’re having trouble finding the valve, then, simply locate the water main and check the shortest path from it to your home. That’s generally where the valve can be found. This information will also be presented to you during a home purchase situation.
There are also a few other important valves to be aware of in case of emergency:
