PLUMBING EMERGENCY!

edited May 2010 in Singularity Engine++
sorry this should probably go into the help forum but I figured more people would see it here.

I'm at my girlfriends apartment and the hot water tap on her bathroom sink is running. When I say running, I mean turned on full blast. It is a sink with two knobs, and one faucet. I tried the shut off valve under the sink but it didn't work. It seems odd that both the faucet and the shut off valve would be broken. I tried the cold shut off too just in case(even though it's hot water coming out) and it didn't do anything.

Called the landlord, plumber won't be here for about 24 hours, and we are wasting a lot of water. Can anybody offer suggestions? It's an apartment building so we can't shut off water to the building.

EDIT: Also, each unit in this building has it's own hot water heater. Should I shut off water going to it? Don't I also need to shut off the heating element? If i did that, would it cut off all water to the apartment? Because it's my girlfriend's place I also don't have any tools.

    you should have a water heater in the apartment

    try turning the water off at that point.

    1) Go to your hot water system and turn off the water there.

    2) Enjoy cold showers

    3) Boil water in the kettle to do dishes.

    out of the past five apartments i've lived in, only one had a water heater in the actual apartment

    (that water heater was located square in the living room)

    that's weird. I've got one

    Also I found out a couple outlets that hadn't worked since we moved in just needed to have their breakers reset. Thought I'd tried it when we moved it but I guess not.

    yeah, is that safe? I read something online saying that you also need to shut off the power supply to the water heater so that the element doesn't super-heat the water in the heater, or work to heat an empty water heater. I have no idea how to do that.

    okay, so shut off the breaker to your water heater, then shut off your water heater

    any place worth their salt ought to have stuff like the water heater labeled in your circuit box

    Under-sink water shutoffs are notorious for being shitty and getting stripped easily.

    There's usually a hot-water shutoff on the output side of the waterheater, I'd recommend shutting it off there.
