First Steps To Take In An Emergency
If you’re facing an urgent situation, do not panic. First, give us a call at 714-497-0869. Then, read through these instructions. Here are some actions you can take as you are waiting for your plumber to arrive.
With a leak, you will have to find the main water valve for that specific appliance and turn it off. For a sink, the valve may be located underneath the cabinet or counter. As for toilets, it will be located underneath the toilet and against the wall. With a washing machine appliance, the valves will be behind the machine connected to the back wall. In each situation, you will need to turn the valve clockwise to turn the water off. Lastly, if you are having problems with other areas in your household, you can turn off the entire water supply for the house.
Are you dealing with a clogged drain? Try a baking soda and vinegar solution. First, boil some water in a kettle, and pour it down your clogged drain, reserving some of the liquid for later. Then, take a mixture of 1/2 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of white vinegar and pour the liquid down the drain. Leave the liquid to sit for about 10-15 minutes. Finally, proceed to pour the reserved boiling water down the drain.
In situations where you have flooding, first find the source of the flooding and cut off the water source. You will have to find the main water valves for the appliance. If you do not know where the water is flowing from, turn off the main water supply valve, which connects to the whole house. If needed, turn off all electricity. This is especially important in situations where an entire floor space, such as a basement, is flooded with water. You don’t want to end up in a dangerous situation where you end up accidentally electrocuting yourself. Remove any important items from the flooding, such as furniture.
The first step will be to locate the main water supply valve and turn off the water. Find the source of the bursted pipe. One way to tell if the bursted pipe is located in the walls is if the ceiling or drywall is displaying water stains. Use towels to clean up any puddles, and buckets to contain any leakage. As you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, you can create a temporary solution if you found the leak for the pipe. Plumber’s tape and plumber’s putty are effective tools that can help enclose a pipe’s small hole or crack. Be sure to let your plumber know the situation and inform them of where you located the busted pipe. In the case of a bursted or broken pipe, A1 Speedy Rooter and Plumbing, Inc. also offers repiping services.
