One Minute Maintenance: Preventing Floods from Plumbing

Travis Rose with 1st Class Plumbing joins us for another installment of One Minute Maintenance Tips! Watch a licensed and experienced plumber show you how to prevent your toilet and hot water heater from overflowing during a plumbing emergency.

  • How to Stop your Toilet from Flooding:

1. Make sure the flapper is pushed down securely against the toilet and does not remain in the open position

2. Locate your water shut off valve 

3.  Turn the valve clockwise until in the off position 

  • How to Stop your Hot Water Heater from Flooding:

1. Located the water shut off valve to your hot water heater

2. Turn the water shut off valve clockwise until it is fully closed.

3. Locate your temperature and pressure (T&P) valve located on either the top or side of your hot water heater 

4. Turn the T&P valve into the off position  

Did you know?
There is also a water shut off valve beneath your bathroom and kitchen sink! 

If you are unable to turn the water off at the toilet, sink, or hot water heater, the best course of action is to turn the water off at the meter. Often times it is easy to turn the water off at the meter while others are digital and require a call to your local water company. Again, act fast in the instance of a plumbing emergency so contact your water company immediately if you are unsure of what to do. 

Remember, having this knowledge can help you stay cool in the time of crisis.  It is necessary to act fast in these situations as a small amount of water can create a huge problem once in contact with flooring, walls, baseboards, and doors.
