Turn off water sources
If possible, locate and turn off the individual shut-off valve for the fixture in question. In most scenarios, this will be underneath the fixture, near the wall. If you are unable to find this, you can use the main water shut-off that will control the entire water supply to your home. This is frequently in the kitchen or laundry room.
Turn off heating devices
If your emergency is caused by a heating or powered device, then turn off all power sources to the fixture to avoid any pressure build-up or hot water burns.
Isolate any leaks
Next, review any remaining leaks and, where possible, capture the water flow with a bucket or waterproof container. Clean any residual water from around the area to avoid slips and falls.
Remove immediate clogsIf you can see the source of a water clog, you may attempt to dislodge it with a plunger. However, if the problem is with a garbage disposal fixture, we recommend leaving it for a professional.
