The first thing you should remember is that safety comes first. If there are any electrical appliances nearby, turn the electricity off at the main breaker. Then, turn off your main water shut off valve. It’s a must to know where this is! (Did you know that a broken pipe or washing machine hose could flood your home with more than ten gallons of water a minute?) If you have a water meter, that is where your main valve should be located. Once the immediate water flow is stopped, call Weather Master to have a plumbing technician promptly sent to your home.
