Stay Calm

Panicking never helps anything. Even though the sight of water pouring through your ceiling may be alarming, it’s important to maintain your composure and keep a clear head.

Shut Off the Main Water Valve

If you have access to the main water valve in your home or apartment, the best thing to do as soon as you notice the leak is to shut off the water to the entire building to stop the flow. Of course, there are some types of plumbing emergencies where this isn’t an option—like if it’s a waste line leak or if the leak occurred before the shut-off valve. But in most cases, it’s a good first step.
