Sometimes, plumbing emergencies such as burst pipes do happen. It is important that you limit the damage until your RGS Ltd plumber arrives.
For burst pipes and water leaks, turn-off all stop valves or stop cocks (often found close to the kitchen sink).
Remember to turn valves clockwise to close the valve.
Open the cold water taps (NOT the hot taps) to allow the water to drain out of the pipes and system.More on plumbing emergencies...
