…know how stressful a plumbing emergency can be, so to help we have pointed out the things you should know if in need.
Emergency plumbing service requires a rapid response – yet it’s still best to prevent disasters in the first place.
Tough Water Solutions plumbers offer you these top tips to prevent plumbing emergencies:
- Ensure that you know the location of the stop valve on the incoming water supply, and that it works.
You should also make sure that you know the location of your outside manhole should access be required to your drains, and check its clear.
- In cold weather, take measures to prevent water pipes from becoming frozen. Open up the hatch to the roof space to allow some heat to come through from the house, to keep the cistern from freezing.
- Ensure that all exposed pipes and storage systems are properly insulated, especially those in the loft region.
- Do not let dripping taps and ball valves go unchecked – this is a sure sign that your plumbing system requires maintenance.
- Stop valves will corrode – check yours every 3-months.
- Ask your plumber to fit isolation valves – this will help in emergency situations and can help to prevent unnecessary damage to your home in case of a plumbing emergency.
