You never know when your water will get cut off. Water outages could last for several hours or days and occur when there’s ongoing street work in the area or the pressure in the water line is too low. Here are some tips to help you make it through water outage:
- Buy water – Always stock up on water in your 72-hour emergency kit to ensure you have enough safe drinking water during the outage. You can also fill your bath tub with water that can be used when flushing your toilet.
- Shut down your heating system – Turning the water heater off will prevent it from overheating or catching fire when the line runs dry.
- As much as possible, limit usage of any household appliance that requires water.
