The water within the pipes in our homes is under pressure and when a pipe leaks or bursts, an incredible amount of water can flow through our home, causing thousands of dollars of damage to the structure and its’ contents.
Quickly getting a plumbing repair contractor to a location to fix a broken pipe is critical. Keeping your water system and plumbing fixtures in good operational condition to prevent plumbing failures is also important. That is the reason why the 123HELP APP features an emergency preparedness plan to help Phoenix homeowners prevent or minimize the amount of damage when a plumbing fixture fails.
By turning water off to a broken pipe or plumbing fixture you will minimize the damage.
The 123HELP App Emergency Preparedness Plan was designed to show you how to do that. We encourage every Phoenix homeowner to spend the time to read and complete their own customized Emergency Preparedness Plan.
The statistics concerning water flow and potential damage should inspire every homeowner to know how and where to turn off the water supply to each water fixture and appliance in their home including the main water supply to their home and including landscape irrigation. If you have not yet completed your I23HELP App Emergency Preparedness Plan, we encourage you to take a few minutes to complete and customize the Emergency Preparedness Plan.
Proper plumbing maintenance, including leak detection services, can prevent or reduce problems from happening. For example, dripping faucets are annoying and they waste water, however they’re not indicators of potential damage events. The same holds true with clogged garbage disposals, they are a nuisance, but usually don’t cause major water spill problems. However, a slow draining plumbing line can that becomes completely stopped-up can result in a nasty flooding situation. Here is a list of plumbing issues to be weary of because they often result in plumbing sourced water damage disasters:
- Slow draining sinks
- Clogged bath or shower drains
- Clogged toilets
- Running toilets
- Faulty water heaters
- Low water pressure
- Low water pressure, pressure that fluctuates, or high pressure
