Watermain breaks usually result from corroded piping. With the constant weather changes in Florida, the ground swells and changes the pressure on the piping, essentially weakening it. If you come across a watermain break, the first thing to remember is to turn the water off to the home. Locate the main shut off valve, unfortunately, there is no set location for the main shut off valve. It could be in your garage or outside of the home. Once located, turn the valve to the left to stop the flow of water. Call us to come out and assess the situation, if the leak cannot be found, we will have a leak detection company come out and locate the leak as soon as possible. After the leak is located, we will repair or replace the water service and bring it up to code.
