Note About The Water Break In Tempe AZ!

By local news, Plumbing Company, water break No Comments

You’re very likely aware of the 24” water main break that flooded the US60 this weekend.

The latest report is that the City of Tempe along with ADOT are working to get the line repaired, but have no immediate timeline for the restoration of travel on the 60 while they work on the repairs. Note: The City of Tempe has released a statement saying that this is not disrupting water supply service to the area for commercial or residential customers. My intention in this email is to make sure you’re aware just in case it does become an issue, not to alarm our customers in any way.

I wanted to reach out just as a recommendation to check a few things at your home in Tempe. There is a small chance that some of the dirt, rocks, road debris have been introduced to that water line while the break occurred and whilst they repair it. We’re not 100% sure if that water line is a main supply for your neighborhood, but I would recommend taking some precautions anyways. If you experience any drop in water pressure, or notice any discoloration “dirty water”, I would recommend the following:

  • Full-Open front hose bib, closest to where the water line enters your home from the city meter, let that blow out water for a few minutes.
  • Removing the aerators from your kitchen and bathroom sink faucets, shower heads if you are able. These can sometimes catch particles and get clogged up, reducing water flow to those fixtures.
  • Running your bath tub faucet for 5-10 minutes in Hot & Cold. Most of the time, tub spouts do not come equipped with aerators and have the largest inside diameter pipe for flow.
  • Flush your water heater – These are often full ¾” supply lines and debris can get into that tank relatively easily.
  • Always feel free to call our office if you have questions or aren’t able to do any of the above yourself.

We’re hoping that the water main break didn’t affect you directly, and that this is all for naught, but want to make sure that if we can take some inexpensive preventative maintenance to avoid a larger scale repair – that we certainly do so. All of these are items you can do yourself, depending on your comfort level.

Wishing you well and please reach out if you have any questions or need something from us!

Thanks, and have a great rest of the weekend!
