Rule number one: keep calm and call Emergency Plumber Eastbourne- like it says on the graphic!
Plumbing emergencies are more common than any of us might hope. They are by definition, unexpected and more often than not extremely inconvenient at best and at the other end of the scale a potential nightmare to deal with.
Most of us do not have contingency plans ready to deal with such events. Without the water being turned on we possibly do not have heating, we almost certainly don’t have water to fill the kettle, or to drink and wash in. Basically we need the fault fixing and fast.
When the going gets tough you need an emergency plumber Eastbourne that is prompt, reliable, experienced and able to deal with the emergency at hand- be it:
A (very leaky) radiator valve spraying dirty water on your wooden flooring or expensive carpet
A pipe joint leaking where you can’t see it in the bathroom until the spot light fittings begin to dribble or the ceiling starts to bow out
A leak in the mains pipe is pushing up the paving slabs and setting your water meter spinning madly
Your water cylinder has begun to leak and the bed linen is now getting a final rinse rather than the “airing” you wanted it to have
Your external drains are blocked and let’s just say that the whole system is backed up
You can mitigate the damage by turning off the mains feed in at what is commonly called the “main stop-cock” usually but not always found under the sink in the kitchen, but not always- do you know where yours is??
Water and electricity definitely don’t mix, so you might want to isolate any circuits affected via the main “fuse box” if you can indeed isolate them if not, no electricity is better on a temporary basis.
Get mopping bowls, buckets etc. can be used to mop up spillages, if the problem is a burst pipe or unidentified leak.
If there is a fault with the boiler and the water level in the system has dropped and you can’t find a leak the system will not work until it is topped up. If the water level is low and it has dropped suddenly- you should consider calling an Emergency Plumber Eastbourne as a precaution. That water went somewhere-put some more in and it will follow where the rest went in the first place.
Of course a lot of faults and mishaps can be prevented by proper installation by qualified and experienced Eastbourne Plumbers in the first place. In the second place water and heating systems have many moving mechanical and electrical parts, so without proper servicing and maintenance any issues will not be detected at an early stage and might surprise you- and not in a good way.
