How to Fix Shut-Off Valve Leak

To fix a shut-off valve leak, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Locate the shut-off valve. This is typically located near the main water supply pipe for your home.
  2. Turn off the water supply. Use the valve to shut off the water supply to the leaking valve.
  3. Drain the pipes. Open the faucet or fixture that is closest to the shut-off valve to allow the water in the pipes to drain out.
  4. Repair or replace the valve. If the valve is simply loose, you may be able to tighten it using a pipe wrench. If the valve is damaged, you will need to replace it.
  5. Turn the water supply back on. Slowly turn the water supply back on, and check the valve for any additional leaks.

It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with the location of your home’s shut-off valves so that you can quickly turn off the water supply in case of an emergency.

Folks, if you're finding yourself in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plumbing situation and make a mistake, don't despair. Don't stress yourself out like I had done =0)) And actually it's not even funny! I thought to myself: "That's it! The faucet and sink would be out of service for days now!" I was driving myself bananas! Call your plumber or a reputable plumbing shop like Preferred Plumbing. At least, to diagnose the issue properly. Nowadays, things can be rectified a lot easier and quicker than you'd think... I've just had my P-trap pipes repaired under the bathroom sink (in a condo) — with Preferred Plumbing. What an admirable team there: from the Main office intake (Maggie) all the way to the owner Raphie himself! ...with Daniel T. being the initial consultant, Dominic Z. the star Tech who fixed it all for me and Josh the Assistant with a friendly beard on the team. The thing which was giving me grief was the P-trap pipe portion that had been 'bloody' soldered to the the main pipe from the building (coming from behind the wall)! Obviously, the kind of thing you don't usually have the tools for as an average Joe. How I got to that point? Don't ask, ok? Just don't ask. I'd already broken an edge of that P-trap portion that's attached to the main pipe from the building (by trying to tighten it up a notch, seeing that it was still leaking). In short, I needed an emergency repair to replace the entire P-trap pipe as a result. My mind was racing with all sorts of scenarios: what if the repair is too complex and unaffordable, what if it takes days to fix — because of some permit, property management involvement or the tool required? But guess what... I called up the shop and found it wasn't as scary as the situation first presented itself. The entire team Preferred Plumbing Solutions worked like special ops: they had all the tools, were ready to rock, on time and put all the options on the table upfront. No surprises. No delays. Needless to say, I'm so relieved it's done. Phew! Good job, team! Appreciate your coming to help me out on the same day.

To start they were to be my house on a Wednesday Feb 1 2023 at 9:00am and 5 minutes to 9:00 the person from Preferred calls me on my cell to say they are running a few minutes late and apologized.The person said he would be happy to bring me a coffee. Who does that - a thoughtful gesture.They arrived at 9:05 am and promptly assessed what needed to be done to fix a broken kitchen faucet.They gave me 3 options at 3 price points and I choose one. The work was done quickly, promptly and on budget - 3 out of 3. The plumbing technicians were courteous, polite and efficient - again, 3 out of 3. Can't say enough positive things about the people and this company. Also my front door lock was loose and one of the technicians had a screwdriver and decided on his own volition to tighten the screws and now the door lock works much better. They will be the first plumbing company I call when and if I have any other plumbing issues in my house. This is a legit review. Andrew

Raphie was incredibly professional and kind. I've never had a better experience with a service company of any kind. I would absolutely call Preferred Plumbing Solutions again if I encounter future problems and I highly recommend them. The attention to detail, thoroughness and above and beyond service was refreshing. Raphie even cleaned up after and cleared all the garbage for me, which no one has ever done. The details matter and say a lot about the way any business genuinely cares for it's customers. Thanks Raphie!

The service amazing. Punctual. Professional. Fixed the problem. At this sensitive time of covid 19. I was asked if I was comfortable with their covid 19 precautions which I was because I saw how careful they were. Gloves masks protective footwear coverings as well as sensitized and wipes. They left my home sanitized clean and soled my problem. Thank you preferred plumbing

Preferred plumbing went above and beyond to explain their services and help with our master bathroom. Even after the service is done, they offered to call my insurance to support my case for draining issues needing to be fixed. I’m so impressed with their customer service, even as a follow up once the service was paid and completed!

As always, I could rely on Preferred Plumbing to arrive exactly when they said they would. The service guy was so pleasant and accommodating. He explained everything to me clearly and patiently before beginning the repairs, and made sure I was ok with what needed to be done. I’m always amazed at how clean my bathroom is after these service guys leave. Everything is done with such courtesy and respect for the home owner. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. And of course the work is always done to perfection with such attention to detail.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Keep Your Pipes from Freezing
There are several steps you can take to prevent your pipes from freezing:

  1. Insulate your pipes. This is especially important for pipes that are exposed to cold temperatures, such as those in an unheated basement or crawl space. Use pipe insulation or wrap the pipes with heat tape to keep them warm.
  2. Keep the temperature in your home above freezing. Set your thermostat to at least 55°F, even when you are away from home.
  3. Disconnect your garden hoses. Drain the water from your hoses and shut off the valve that supplies water to them.
  4. Keep your cabinet doors open. This allows warm air to circulate around the pipes under your sink.
  5. Let the faucet drip. Running a small stream of water through the pipes can help prevent them from freezing.
  6. Keep the garage door closed. This can help protect the pipes that run through the garage from the cold.

By following these steps, you can help protect your pipes from freezing and avoid costly repairs.

How to Drain Pipes for the Winter

Winter is here! That means it’s time to prepare your pipes for the cold weather. Draining pipes helps reduce the risk of freezing and bursting during freezing temperatures. Here are some tips to help you effectively drain your pipes.
1. Start by shutting off all exterior faucets, such as those in your yard, garden or hose bibs.
2. Turn off any water shut-off valves located inside the house that lead to outdoor lines.
3. Open all exterior faucets and allow them to drain until they are completely empty of water.
4. Disconnect any hoses attached to outside faucets and bring them indoors or store them away from the cold weather.
5. Insulate all exposed pipes with foam wrap insulation designed for plumbing use, typically rated at R-4, which will provide four times more insulation than regular building insulation materials like fiberglass batting.
6. Some indoor supply lines, such as those leading from a water heater or a washing machine, may need incomplete draining if in areas without adequate heating systems for protection against freezing temperatures. In these cases, you can use a garden hose attachment with an adapter on one end and a spigot on the other end connected to the supply line in order to partially drain excess water out of the line when needed during periods of extreme cold temperatures.

How can weather cause a pipe to burst?
Generally, the rule of thumb is that when it’s cold, it contracts and when it’s warm, it expands. Not so with frozen pipes, as the ice buildup causes increased pressure inside your pipes, causing it to literally burst out of the pipe.

All that added pressure can sometimes cause the pipes to explode as it cannot contain the ice buildup in your plumbing system. Oftentimes, the pressure will build and burst right out of the pipe wall or a weak joint in the plumbing system.

How Can I prevent pipe bursts at home?
As a preventative measure, it’s recommended to turn on your faucets slightly to allow a slow stream of water to drip in your sink. This will allow a slow, steady stream to escape the ice formation and keep it from expanding too much to the point of explosion. Another way to prevent water and ice pressure buildup is to insulate the exposed water supply pipes with a foam pipe sleeve.

Another added measure would be to not allow the temperature in the home to dip below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Keeping your cabinet doors open beneath your sink area will also allow warmer air to flow and circulate your pipes and cause them not to freeze. Contact a plumber near you to ensure your home is properly winterized and ready for when the onslaught of the winter months comes.

How do I add hot water to my outdoor shower?

In order to have hot water outside, the shower needs to connect to the hot water system in the house.
Our plumbers are trained and experienced to do this. Once the connection to the hot water system is made, the outside shower will have both hot and cold water.

What is the difference between hard and soft water?

Here at Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc., one of the most common questions we receive is about the differences between hard and soft water. Hard water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can cause scale to build up in pipes and appliances over time. Soft water on the other hand, is free of those minerals, allowing soap to lather better and providing a gentler touch. In addition, soft water can assist with reducing soap scum in sinks and showers while helping reverse some of the damage caused by hard water. Ultimately, the key difference between hard and soft water has to do with those mineral levels and their effects on plumbing systems.
