Amazing! One Plumbing Reminder You Don’t Want to Miss
Information about One Plumbing Reminder You Don’t Want to Miss
Spring is here, which means it’s time for homeowners to start planning their next big outdoor project. We are big proponents of patio building because nothing feels cooler or more comfortable than eating a summery dinner on a patio you built with your own hands! Or, if no deck, then maybe this is finally the time of year to build that fence so your kids and pets can run free with the sprinkler. In any case, we’d love to hear about your spring project.
However, we think it’s important to remind homeowners of a very important detail that is often forgotten. Your Orlando, FL water main could be in serious trouble if you don’t take the necessary precautions before you start digging and ordering construction supplies. Anything can be hidden beneath the surface of your belongings and you need to make sure the work you are about to do doesn’t conflict with anything important!
Start tagging your property
How are you supposed to know if your next spring project is going to upset a water or gas line? Well, first you should mark your property to make sure you have a rough idea of where the excavation will take place. You can do this with small stakes and twine, or even with ground-safe spray paint available at hardware stores.
Once you have a clear idea of where your project will be, you can make arrangements by asking 8-11 dig for help.
Call 8-11 Dig!
8-11 dig is a nationwide, free service that gives homeowners vital information about their property and utilities. The 8-11 dig representative will ask you for the general location of the work you are doing and will notify your utilities to let you know if gas, power or water lines are upset. That can be great, because after a short time you will know exactly what is standing in your way!
We strongly encourage every homeowner to consult 8-11 dig before any home project, no matter how deep you will dig. It’s a good courtesy, and the problems avoided are worth the extra effort.
What happens if you accidentally hit a waterline?
First of all, you should take a second to calm down and remind yourself that this is actually quite lucky. Your water main is the most certain thing you could hit while digging. Striking a gas line with a spade can easily create a fire hazard on your property, and striking a buried power line could result in electrocution. So we’re pretty glad you’re safe and just hit your main waterline.
Next, close your water inlet valve so your house stops using water. Once you are confident that this is done, call our team to have the water line replaced or repaired.
