A plumber can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. Believe me, I've heard all kinds of stories! From not showing up, to poor craftsmanship, I've heard from many exasperated homeowners. Your local Marlborough CT emergency plumber strives to be the exception. In the event of a plumbing disaster, we want you to feel in charge of the situation until we get there.
Plumbing emergency tipsDoesn't it always seem like "Murphy's Law" when something bad happens? A house full of guests and the water heater bursts. You just bought a house and a pipe splits. The dog got sprayed with a skunk and the outside spigot flooded your basement. Long day with the kids left you wanting a relaxing bath, but there's no water.
We know how stressful and crazy it can get. Here a some tips to make it a little easier while you wait for a plumber:
- Water heater burst. Locate the shut-off valve on the cold water side. The tank will try to keep filling up if you don't, which will lead to more water on your floor. Once your plumber arrives, ask him about 'leak detection' which can send alerts to your smart phone!
- Split pipe. Find your whole-house water shut-off valve. Whatever water that's in the system will continue to drain, but using the valve will stop more water from coming in. Our YouTube video shows you how to find your home's shut-off.
- Broken outside spigot. Again, find the shut-off valve. The spigot may have split over the winter. Our Marlborough CT plumber can install a frost-free faucet in its place to avoid a mess in the future.
- No water. Go to your electrical panel, also called a breaker box. Turn the power off to your well pump. This will prevent your well pump from burning out until emergency plumbing service arrives.
