A water leak in your home can ruin your day. However, whether it counts as an emergency situation or something that you can take care of until business hours depends on several factors. If you aren’t sure if you have an emergency or not, contact us at Plumbing Concepts in Corona, CA, for emergency repair. Here’s what you can do until our plumbers can get to your home.
A Major Leak Spouting Water Everywhere
Frequently, broken water supply lines will cause massive water output. If this happens, you may find water leaking in your walls or floors. Left unchecked, your home could experience minor flooding. You will also notice that water pressure will drop at your fixtures.
First, go outside and turn off the main water supply valve to your home. This shuts down the incoming flow to reduce the amount of water that gets into your home.
Call our emergency service line at (951) 520-8590 anytime to get our plumbers out to your home as soon as possible.
Clean up any puddles of water that you may have around your home. If the leak happened in the ceiling, put a bucket under the dripping to protect your floor. Take photos of the damage and call your insurance company if you have coverage for such incidents.
Let us handle the pipe repair. You may also need to contact construction crews to replace any damaged walls, floors, or ceilings to prevent mold growth in your home.
A Minor, Annoying Leak at a Fixture
Not all plumbing leaks cause catastrophes. If you have a minor leak around your toilet or under a sink, shut off the water supply to that fixture only. You will see a valve under the fixture to shut off the water. This type of leak does not necessarily need emergency service. You may be able to wait until our regular service hours to call for plumbers.
However, even if the leak happens at a single fixture, if you have uncontrolled water spilling out, call our emergency line.
