Things To Do In The Event Of A Broken Water Main

 You are in your home and all of a sudden you loose water pressure to your home.  You ask yourself, what in the world is going on? Why do I have low or no water pressure? You walk around your home and notice water is gushing out of the ground. What should you do? This week, this situation has occurred multiple times. First thing to do is not panic. You most likely have a broken water main. Here  is a list of things you should do:

1. Many people panic with a broken water main. As a result, they shut the main water off in their house.  Unfortunately, this will not shut off  the water from a leak between the meter and your home. The best thing to do is locate your water meter. Most water meters in Orlando and Oviedo are usually located in the front by the street. To shut it off, you will need a special key. If you do not have the special key, call the emergency city line. They emergency city line number is listed on your water bill. Once you get someone on the line,  tell them you have a water leak in your home. They immediately shut it off.

2. Call a local plumber in your city. For example, if you have a home in Orlando or Oviedo, call a Orlando plumber or an Oviedo plumber. Why? For the simple fact that a local plumber will be able to get to you sooner.  To help better assist your plumber, it would be helpful to know a few things when you call. Tell the plumber the location of the area where the broken water main is at.  In others words, is the leak under the driveway, sidewalk or is it in a heavily rooted area of your lawn? Providing this information will help a well qualified plumber to better estimate the cost of the service. If you have a water main break in Orlando or Oviedo give Drain Genie Plumbing Services a call in Oviedo at (407) 710-0210 and Orlando at 407-490-1230.
