Ensure that your water is turned off – for faulty pipe emergencies, the first thing to do would be to shut down the water. Depending upon the nature of the emergency situation. If it is a minor pipe issue, potentially in the toilet, it’s advised to turn off the water as toilets can get messy if water is left to continue to flow.
Examine the water heater
Most emergencies will require the water heater to be turned off. This is to protect against damages to the device. To avoid overheating or bursting a valve you can shut off the primary water valve. The gas must be shut off first if your heating system is operated by gas.
Control little leaks
Controlling small leaks is relatively easy. Once the small leak has been spotted you can wrap it with a towel, tape or cloth. Sometimes placing a container underneath the pipe can work well. This will suffice until the technician arrives.
