What should you do before we arrive?
While we will dispatch a technician to your home as soon as we receive your call, there are simple tasks you can do to help relieve your home from further water damage.
The most important thing to do in the event of a burst pipe is to turn off the main water valve. Rotate the valve clockwise to stop all water flow throughout your home. This will prevent the burst pipe from creating further damage and provide you with temporary relief before we arrive. If you have frozen pipes, turn on all faucets to a small trickle to draw any remaining water out of the system. Once we arrive, we will be able to see if any other pipes are frozen without the danger of a sudden burst.
