Happy Memorial Day from your local 24 hour Orlando plumber. Lets not forget about what Memorial Day means which is to remember all heroes that gave their lives so we could enjoy the freedom we have everyday in America! Most people spend this holiday with their friends and family by grilling out and having a good time but in the unfortunate event you have a plumbing emergency you really need to know what to do to cut down on damage to your property from water. The following are some ways to minimize plumbing damage until your 24 hour Orlando plumber can come out to help:
Know where your water shut-off is for the entire house. If you don’t have one, you should know where your water meter is and have the tool to shut it down in the event of a burst pipe.
Make sure you know where your sewer clean-out is and keep it marked or clear so you can find it in the event of a sewer back up. ( Hint if you have a clean-out and your home is backed up, open the clean-out plug as this will relieve water pressure and allow waste to flow out outside instead of flowing into your home. This trick works most of the time.)
One of the most important things to do is to have a good relationship with a trustworthy Orlando plumber that will help you in your time of need. Most plumbers will give priority to loyal repeat customers and are willing to help even if they are busy with other things. If you need plumbing help, please give us a call at 407-490-1230.
