STEPS TO TAKE WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR
PLUMBERS TO ARRIVE
If the emergency is flooding.
Turn off the water supply from the main tap:
Turn Off the Main Stop Tap.
This will usually be found under the kitchen sink. Turn it clockwise. This will prevent any more water entering the house from the water main. If the stop tap is not under the sink, it can be found where the service pipe enters your house. Important: Be sure to find out where your stop tap is located, before an emergency arises
Drain Your Cold Water System:
Turn on all the faucets and flush the toilets several times until no more water comes out. Important: If water has been leaking for some time and the ceilings are bulging, rooms may not be safe to enter. If you notice your ceiling beginning to bulge, you can catch the dripping water in buckets; and punch a hole in the ceiling.
Turn Off the Stopcock in Your Cold Water Tank,
(if you have one). This is usually found in the attic or loft.
Turn off the electrical supply
If the water leak is anywhere near the house electrical supply, then shut off the fuses in your main fuse box.
Be careful!. If the fuse box is wet -Don’t Touch
Drain the hot water system,
Turn off the hot water system. Once the system is shut down, open up the hot water taps to drain all the hot water from your pipes
