Everything you need to know, all on one page

I have a leak, what’s the first thing I should do?
For starters, you need to turn off the source of the water leak. If you’re not able to tell where the leak is coming from, shut off the water meter itself to ensure that no more water is flowing through your home. Clean up any water messes that may cause injuries or form mold and then call Gem Plumbing for assistance. Since you will be unable to use your water during this time, we’ll make sure to perform swift service so you can go back to living normally!
My water won’t shut off, what do I do?
If you have a running faucet that won’t shut off even when you turn the handle, you should still be able to stop the flow from your main valve. If the handle to the main valve also isn’t working, don’t be alarmed! Most valves are designed so that they can still be adjusted with pliers or a wrench. If you’re still having trouble, consult the friendly staff at Gem Plumbing.
What is hydro jetting and do I need it?
At Gem Plumbing, we offer hydro jetting as an effective way to clear out any clogs that you may have in your pipe system. We recommend doing this at least once a year as preventive maintenance in avoiding unpleasant drain problems and increasing the lifespan of your pipes.
How can I confirm that I have a hidden leak?
It can be difficult to spot some leaks, but if you’re noticing a higher-than-usual water bill, there could be something going on. One way to confirm a hidden leak is to mark the numbers on your main water valve, shut it off for a few hours while refraining from using any water fixtures, and check the numbers again. If the results change despite not using any of your appliances, then you most likely have a leak somewhere. The experts at Gem Plumbing will be able to find and fix the problem for you!
What happens if I don’t take care of my leak right away?
Not everyone wants to take time out of their day to address a leak, and the thought of just placing a bucket underneath and calling it a day can be very tempting. However, leaving a leak unattended for too long can cause the minor situation to deal greater damage that will cost even more to fix. For a lower repair cost and a happy home, call Gem Plumbing sooner than later. Don’t worry, we promise fast and reliable service so you can go on with your day!
