Water Line Repair Services
When you know you have a leak in your main water line there is one question that you will want an answer to before performing a water line repair or anything else, and that is… How Do I Turn Off My Main Water Line Water Supply?
For most homes where the weather can become extremely cold the main water valve will be found in the basement of the home.
Look in the general area of the wall where there is a water faucet connected to the outside of the house. If you do not see a valve there look inside the garage or on the outside of the house near or below the outside water faucet.
Once you find the handle simply turn it to the off position, this will stop the water from flowing into your home from the main line connected to the main water source. Once the water emergency is under control it is time to call in an experienced licensed professional like John The Plumber to make any necessary water line repair or water line replacement if the damage is too great.
