Emergency Plumbing Tips
Not unless you have a resident plumber or live next-door to one, you may have to wait awhile before your plumbing issues get resolved. And in that time spent waiting, your dilemma may get worse or cause a great amount of inconvenience.
To save yourself from a lot of trouble, it may come in handy to know a few emergency plumbing tips that you may use before the professionals swoop in to save the day. Here are a few from DIY Network:
- Always know where the main water shut-off valve is located in case of a leak.
- If a supply tube break off is causing a leak, screw in a blind cap to seal off the leak until it can be fixed.
- Use duct tape or pipe sealing tape to pull together a crack in a pipe, reducing the leak as a temporary solution.
- To unclog a toilet, use a forced cup plunger.
