Your Normal Plumber
If there's a water leak, repairing faucets, fixtures and pipes can be quite urgent – and may require a plumber's immediate attention. If you discover a leak, it is best to shut the water while waiting for a Normal plumber to arrive, to prevent further water damage.
The quickest way to stop water leaking from the pipes is to shut off the water supply from the main valve, then go to the lowest point in the house and open a faucet. Gravity will force the remaining water to drain out the faucet, minimizing the water that can escape through the leak. Ask how to prevent recurring problems
When hiring a Normal plumber, make sure they have a valid license, if required in your state. There is usually a phone number you can call to verify that the license is current and that there are no complaints against it. Any plumber you hire should have a minimum of $500,000 liability insurance and a current worker's compensation policy. Once you find a plumber you're satisfied with, keep his number handy for emergencies. In an emergency, it's better to call someone who already knows you than a complete stranger.
