A customer had just purchased a home a few weeks prior when he called us to report that three pipes were leaking. He shut off his water and we immediately dispatched a technician to fix the problem.
Even a single pipe leaking in your basement can quickly become a huge problem, much less three. Luckily, the man knew where his main water shutoff was located so he could stop the flow before any extensive damage took place. Make sure that you know exactly where your shutoff is located, whether you’re just moving into a new home or you've been there for years. You could save yourself a great deal of structural damage should a leak occur.
