Emergency Water Leak Problems You Can Solve
One of the worst things that can happen to any homeowner
is a water leak. Especially one that's leaking water all over your house
and you can't stop it. You don't know where to shut the water off and no
one ever showed you how.
This is a big problem with homeowners, especially young children and women. Locating the water supply shutoff valve can be like finding a needle in a haystack, especially if you're in full panic mode and water is leaking all over your house.
The key to solving this problem, is preparing yourself for any types of water leaks. Water leaks include plugged kitchen and bathroom drains, along with damaged water supply lines. Once the water starts to leak and you don't have the ability to shut it off, you have two choices.
You can run out to the front of your house screaming like a wild Indian yelling for help or you can call a plumber and pay the extremely high emergency rates that you're going to be charged. Here's the good news, if you're reading this article, you should make sure that you find out where your water supply shutoff valve is located and do it as soon as possible.
If you're seriously, not interested in paying ridiculous emergency plumber fees, find out how to shut the water supply valve off, just in case you find yourself in an emergency water leak situation. I can't stress this enough, so make sure that you ask someone for help with this problem as soon as possible.
I don't know how much emergency plumber's charge, but I wouldn't doubt that it would be over $100, just to shut the water off in an emergency situation.
