If you have experienced a plumbing emergency in your home, the best thing you can do is to contact a plumber right away. Mainline Plumbing Dunsborough/Busselton are only a phone call away and can do emergency on-site repairs when you need them. In the meantime, there are some steps you can take to potentially reduce the damage done to your home by plumbing emergencies.
- Shut Off Water Mains
- Switch Off Your Water Heater
- Look For Leaking Pipes
Shut Off Water Mains
Shutting off all your water at the mains can be beneficial in a plumbing emergency. If you have a cracked or damaged pipe in your plumbing, this can help the holes from getting bigger.
Switch Off Your Water Heater
If the plumbing emergency is related to your home’s water heater, switching off your hot water system can prevent further damages. Be sure to take care and only do so if it is safe. If you have already turned off your water mains, you should take this step to avoid causing issues with your water heater’s function.
Look For Leaking Pipes
If you can locate the leaking pipe first, you can save yourself and your plumber some time. The most likely locations for leakages in a home are in the laundry, bathroom or kitchen. Keep in mind that finding a leaking pipe may be impossible if the leak is underground, and in that case you will need to let your local plumbing expert handle it when they arrive.
