There are more shut off valves within your home than you may realize. Valves can be found throughout a home, underneath your kitchen sink and behind your toilet. These are used to make it easy for the owner or their local plumber to complete repair work on the home’s plumbing equipment. However, there are a couple of common problems that can escalate over time. Newly installed valves and saddle valves have a tendency to leak. This can be any intensity, from a slow dribble to a fervent stream. For new valves, tightening is okay, however saddle valves need replacement. These are found within older plumbing systems and are prone to leaking.
After long periods of plumbing work, you may find your pipes and valve dripping once you turn the water back on. This is normal and only requires a bit of tightening. However, do be sure to turn on your water once more. Our final common problem is the most serious. Many people turn off their water supply during the winter if they are not using their home, such as a vacation home. This is to save the pipes from potentially freezing over. While it is great, some times water can be caught between the supply shut off and the spigot. This water then freezes and can burst your pipe, leading to a big surprise when you turn the water back on! Re-piping is called for in these instances.
