What To Do If Your Water Main Breaks

The official start of winter still a week away, but many parts of Georgia have already experienced freezing temperatures. Freezing temperatures can dangerous to your plumbing, it can lead to frozen pipes and cause water lines to break.

If your pipes break you should immediately shut off the water using the home’s shut off valve. There are two major shut off valves located on your property, the first valve is called the curb stop and is typically located outside near the property line and is normally housed by a cylinder called the curb box. The other valve is located in the home next to the water meter. All other valves should be located near plumbing appliances such as sinks and toilets.

The next step is to call a licensed plumber, like Rescue Rooter Atlanta to repair and/or replace any broken water lines.
