How to Handle a Plumbing Emergency
Shut off the water: The fastest way to stem the flow of water from a leak is to shut off the water behind the appliance in question. If you have a more widespread problem, such as frozen pipes, you should shut off the main water valve.
Limit the damage: Without delay, start soaking up as much water as you can with towels, blankets and even buckets in extreme cases. Your priority in this stage is to reduce water damage as much as possible.

Take affected items outside: While you wait for the plumber to arrive, move anything portable that has been damaged by the leak or overflow outside your home to help prevent further damage. Use caution when transporting wet electronics. Wipe items dry and let them air out.
Take preventative measures: With the plumber's help, determine what you can do to prevent a similar emergency in the future. This might mean replacing old appliances or pipes that are prone to clogging or leaking. In the case of burst pipes caused by freezing temperatures, look into specific ways to protect your pipes.
