Turn Off the Water
While waiting for us to perform your water line repair in Tacoma, WA, you need to halt the flow of water to your home. Find your water meter. Turn off the water to your home. You may need a wrench to do this. It's good to know in advance where the right tool is and where the water meter is. You can even practice this when there's no emergency.
Open a Few Faucets
If you have a water main blow-out, turn on a couple of faucets in your home. Allow the water to run out. This relieves pressure in your plumbing system while you wait for a water line replacement.
Call Your Insurance Company
Even if your insurance company won't cover a deteriorated or neglected water line that requires water line installation, it may cover damage to your home. Even insurers that don't provide this coverage may have a list of home services companies that can clean the water damage for you.
