A plumbing emergency is not something that you probably like to think about. But, just like a fire drill at school, it is valuable to game out a possible emergency scenario. It can be extremely difficult to know what to do in any kind of crisis and especially during a crisis that takes you by complete surprise. That is why it is important to prepare now, so that you are ready and know what to do should something bad happen.
A plumbing disaster can come in different forms. A scenario could be that you wake up one day for work, hop in the shower, and to your sudden shock, nothing happens when you turn on the water. Another scenario could be that you come back from a nice, relaxing vacation only to discover a flooded basement. Yet another scenario could be that you hop in the shower and only cold water comes out. You have a long day at work ahead of you, and now you are in a situation where you can only take a freezing cold shower.
Like in any other crisis, the first thing you should do is remind yourself to stay calm. When we are under a tremendous amount of stress all of a sudden, it can be easy to do the wrong thing. Plus, the anxiety you feel can be overwhelming. Try to stay calm and realize that you will be okay in the end.
Depending on the emergency, shut off the main water valve. In a case of a massive plumbing leak, locate the main water valve for your home and turn off the water. You will stop the flow of water and stop the disaster from getting any worse.
