The Most Common Plumbing Emergencies
Plumbing emergencies can leave you without the water or drainage you need to perform everyday tasks. A serious plumbing problem can also cause extensive damage to your property in a matter of minutes, leaving you with not only the costs of plumbing repair, but also property cleanup or replacement after the fact. When you experience a major plumbing problem that simply cannot wait, calling your 24-hour plumber is the best solution to avoid further damage, discomfort, or stress.
Frozen and Burst Pipes
Frozen pipe problems is a fact of life. When pipes are exposed to below-freezing temperatures, the water inside them can freeze and expand, leading to situations such as cracking or bursting that can cause anything from a small drip to a major flood. If you suspect a pipe has frozen, turn off the water to the area immediately and take steps to thaw the pipe, then call your emergency plumber, even if you don't think the pipe has cracked or burst. In situations where your pipe has clearly burst, it’s essential to call your 24-hour plumber for immediate service, as you cannot restore water to the pipe until it has been repaired.
Water Heater Failure
You rely on your water heater every day for hot water to bathe, cook, and clean. When your water heater fails without warning, it can leave you without the ability to perform these simple yet essential tasks, leading to schedule disruption and added stress. If you experience a water heater failure when you cannot go without hot water or you think there may be a problem with the electrical connections or gas line powering the appliance, you should always call in your 24-hour plumber for diagnosis and repair of the problem immediately, rather than suffering without the hot water you need or allowing a potential safety hazard to go unaddressed.
Major Leaks and Floods
Leaks are one of the most common plumbing issues you’re likely to experience, but not every leak is a plumbing emergency. When leaks can be stopped by shutting off the water to a single appliance or contained in a bucket until business hours, it is safe to delay calling for plumbing repair until a later time. However, if a leak is causing major flooding and property damage and you must turn off your water main or shut off water to an appliance you absolutely need, it’s a job for your 24-hour plumber to handle immediately.
Sewer backups are not only a significant inconvenience, they can cause extensive property damage and pose a serious risk to your health, as well. Because sewer backups can render your entire plumbing system unable to drain properly, they should be addressed quickly by a professional to restore the function of your drains, appliances, and fixtures. While a minor sewer clog that still allows for some drainage may be manageable until business hours, you should always call for emergency plumbing assistance if you experience a major sewer backup that renders your plumbing unusable due to a blocked sewer line.

Choose Your Emergency Plumber Wisely
Once you've got a broken pipe, leaky water tank or overflowing toilet, you've lost the luxury of time to shop for the best emergency plumber. In fact, in the stress of the moment, you're likely to hire the first company to answer their phone.
Save yourself the panic and uncertainty by researching your options now. Once you've found the right emergency plumber for you, add their number to your contact list so you won't even have to search for it when the need arises.
Here are some questions to consider as you compare companies:
1. How quickly can they respond to a plumbing emergency? Ideally, look for a plumber that can take your call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and dispatch someone immediately if necessary.
2. Do they provide upfront estimates for your approval before the work is done? A plumbing emergency is an unpleasant surprise. Your bill shouldn't be.
3. Do they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee? If the work doesn't meet your expectations, your plumber should work hard to make it right.
4. Have their specialists undergone background checks and drug tests? Are they licensed and insured? You want to make sure you have a trustworthy, professional plumber coming into your house.
5. Will they protect your property with drop cloths and shoe covers, as needed? When you're facing a plumbing emergency, courteous service is more than a bonus; it's peace of mind when you need it most.
What Should I Do Before My Plumber Arrives?
We're your first call in the event of an emergency, but you can also take steps to mitigate potential damage before emergency help arrives. Make sure you know where your water shut-off valve is located, and check out our handy tips for emergency DIY.
Turn off water sources
If possible, locate and turn off the individual shut-off valve for the fixture in question. In most scenarios, this will be underneath the fixture, near the wall. If you are unable to find this, you can use the main water shut-off that will control the entire water supply to your home. This is frequently in the kitchen or laundry room.
Turn off heating devices
If your emergency is caused by a heating or powered device, then turn off all power sources to the fixture to avoid any pressure build-up or hot water burns.
Isolate any leaks
Next, review any remaining leaks and, where possible, capture the water flow with a bucket or waterproof container. Clean any residual water from around the area to avoid slips and falls.
Remove immediate clogs
If you can see the source of a water clog, you may attempt to dislodge it with a plunger. However, if the problem is with a garbage disposal fixture, we recommend leaving it for a professional.
