a plumbing emergency, you'll need to stop the flow of water quickly. To
do this, you and each member of your family needs to know the location
of the shutoff valve for every fixture and appliance, as well as the
main shutoff valve for the house, and how they operate.
If the emergency
involves a specific fixture or appliance, first look for its shutoff
valve and turn it clockwise to shut off the water to that fixture or
The valve is usually
located underneath a fixture such as a sink or a toilet, or behind an
appliance, such as a clothes washer, at the point where the water supply
pipe (or pipes) connects to it.
If the problem is not
with a particular fixture or appliance, or if there's no shutoff valve
for the fixture or appliance, use the main shutoff valve to turn off the
water supply to the entire house.
find the main shutoff valve on the inside or outside of your house
where the main water supply pipe enters. In cold climates, look just
inside the foundation wall in the basement or crawl space.
Turn the valve clockwise
to shut it off. Professional Tip If you need a wrench to turn the
valve, keep one, specially labeled near the valve so it's handy.
If the main shutoff
valve itself is defective and needs to be repaired, call your water
company; they can send someone out with the special tool that's required
to shut off the water at the street before it reaches the valve.
Leaking or Broken Pipe
Turn off the main shutoff valve to prevent water damage.
Quick Fixes: Stick
a pencil point into the hole and break it off, then wrap the pipe with
electrician's tape. Smear some plumber's epoxy repair putty over the
tape to make sure it doesn't leak. Let it set for half an hour and
turn the water back on.
Wrap a piece of rubber
(like an old inner tube) around the pipe over the hole, and then use a C clamp and small blocks of wood to clamp the rubber wrap tightly in place.
you have them, hose clamps around the rubber covering the hole could
also be used to keep water from leaking. Don't have any old rubber that
can act as a repair.
Cut a piece of garden
hose long enough to cover the hole in the pipe plus two or three inches
on each side.
Slice the garden hose
lengthwise and position it over the hole in the pipe. Once again, use
hose clamps to keep it in place and stop water from leaking.
Then, call one of our
plumbing professionals out to determine the cause of the problem and
possibly pinpoint where the leak is coming from with our high efficiency
water or gas leak detection equipment.

How a toilet works:There are two assemblies concealed under the lid of a
toilet tank. 1. A ball cock assembly, which regulates the filling
of the tank, and 2. A flush valve assembly, which controls the flow
of water from the tank to the bowl.When someone presses the flush
handle, the trip lever raises the lift wires or chain connected
to the tank stopper. As the stopper goes up water rushes through the
valve seat into the bowl via the flush passages. The water in the bowl
yields to gravity and is siphoned out the trap.Once the tank empties,
the stopper drops into the flush valve seat. The float ball trips the
ball cock assembly to let a new supply of water into the tank through
the tank fill tube. As the tank water level rises, the float ball rises
until it gets high enough to shut off the flow of water. If the water
fails to shut off, the overflow tube carries water down into the bowl to
prevent an overflow. Unclog Clogged Toilets Keep your toilet from
