It’s as easy as 1-2-3
What has happened to my water pressure? Is that a dripping noise I can hear? Why is the water rising when I flush? These inevitable scenarios needn’t spell out complete catastrophe. By follow these three simple steps, you will be safe in the knowledge that you can avert a plumbing crisis.
- Don’t Panic – As in most emergency situations, the first statement of advice is to remain calm. Admittedly, when so many plumbing emergencies – such as leaking appliances, broken faucets and burst pipes – seem to happen at the worst possible time, it can be easy to lose your cool.
- Know your way around the plumbing – During nine out of ten plumbing emergencies, the most important thing to do is to turn off the water supply. Water can be turned off from inside and outside your premises. Knowing how to shut off the valve is crucial. The main shut-off valve is normally located at the edge of your property closest to the street; it may be on the sidewalk; and it may need a special key. Valves for specific appliances are normally located behind the appliance. Ideally, familiarise yourself with where your stopcocks are before there’s an unplanned fountain in your main reception area.
