Portland Plumber: Do You Have a Leak That Just Won’t Stop?
We recently received a call from a couple in Lake Oswego complaining that their toilet was running even after they shut down their whole house water valve. We immediately suspected this was a case of a water main break, and once we instructed them to check their water meter, this was confirmed. We replaced their water main line the very next day.
You’re in dangerous territory if you can hear water moving through your home when the water main line is shut down. It means there’s a break somewhere possibly creating pockets of water around your home. If you suspect a water main break, act fast.
1. Shut off the water main valve.
It’s imperative that all water be immediately stopped in its tracks to prevent flooding and water damage, not to mention excessively high utility bills. Water main valves are typically located in basements or crawlspaces.
2. Check the water meter.
You’re looking for a little red lever with a star on it. If this is spinning when the water valve is off, it means there’s a leak.
3. Call 3 Mountains Plumbing.
Don’t go it alone. Of course it’s in our best interest to promote ourselves, but the truth is, water service repair and replacement is not a do-it-yourself project.
