While I was checking the kitchen sink of this house today, I noted I was standing in water. Immediately shut off all water flow ( sink & dishwasher) and ran for the towels and shop vac. Got everything dried up and started my search. After checking all the plumbing under the sink and under the dishwasher, I could not find any source of the water. Dry under the sink and dishwasher. The kitchen is located on the second floor of a three story home. And to add to this there was moisture noted with a meter on the ceiling and on the baseboard in the basement.
This home is vacant with no refrigerator and the ice maker line was hanging out of the cabinet next to where that frig would be located. The valve for the cold water supply to the sink and ice maker supply line were off. When operating the kitchen faucet, water was back flowing from the hot supply line into the ice maker line. The hot water supply was then shut off and no more water was flowed to the sink.
After drying everything out and tracing the source of the water, I then contacted both agents involved to advice them of the situation. Everything seemed to be ok with them today. I have also contacted my E&O to give them a heads up.
Has anyone experienced this situation and just on opinions on will this likely be an insurance claim on me.
Also is there any requirement for an individual shut off for the ice maker line.
