If you have a broken water line, here are some steps to take: 

  • Turn off all the taps in your home. 

  • Shut off the main water shutoff valve on your property. 

  • Check to see if any of the lines going into your home are broken. If so, shut off those lines as well. 

  • Call a professional remediation contractor to come out and assess the damage and help you identify any solutions to fix the issue. 

  • Have your contractor replace any damaged lines with new ones as needed. 

  • Restore water service once all repairs have been made by turning on the main water shutoff valve and checking to see if any lines have been reconnected incorrectly.
