Mark Your Water Shutoff Valves to be Ready for Emergencies

Home » Blog » Mark Your Water Shutoff Valves to be Ready for Emergencies

In water emergencies, such as burst pipes, the first thing you should do is shut off the water. Does everyone in your house know where the water shutoff valves are for outside faucets, water to bathrooms and kitchen sink/fridge, water connections at the washing machine, at any water filtration systems, and the main water flow into the house? Chances are they don’t. And when you have a water emergency you are too panicked to run around trying to figure it out. Take colored tape and put it up at each water shutoff valve in your home. Write on the tape what it turns off and instructions on how to turn the valve to shut off the water flow. That way everyone in your home will know what to do if there is ever an emergency such as a burst pipe, overflowing toilet or a leak. After the water is off, call us at Summers & Zim’s, 610-593-5129, to get the problem fixed.
