A water leak in a building such as ours can be very damaging and costly to owners including yourself.
Locate your main and any secondary shut-off valves (see section on plumbing fixtures).
When a leak occurs
- Close all the shut-off valves in your unit including main valve, and as if secondary valves that exist in your unit such as individual sinks, dishwasher, washing machine, toilets, and refrigerator.
- Notify the Superintendent and Property Manager.
- Mop up and collect any continuing water leakage to minimise water damage to your unit and neighbouring units.
Non-emergency leakage from sinks and toilet
If water leaks from faucet/reservoir into sinks/toilets you should notify the Superintendent and Property Manager to ensure that it is not causing water damage. It is then the owner's responsibility to organise to have leaks fixed.
