Plumbing emergencies can happen at any time and, unfortunately, they can happen at the most inconvenient of times too. Whether your toilet is clogged or there is a leak in your piping system – it is worth knowing which plumber you can turn to in a moment of crisis. It is even more important to know what the main reasons you should call a 24/7 emergency plumber are.
Burst water mains can cause extreme and costly damage to your home – not to mention the added cost to your water bill. If water suddenly starts gushing from your pipes or you have come home to a flood, do not hesitate to get in contact with a 24/7 emergency plumber.
Key factors, such as hearing running water from within the walls, can identify plumbing emergencies. This can be a sign that there is a hidden leak that can also result in a costly water bill and damage to your home. Additionally, if you have no water at all, it could be a sign of a severe problem with the main line or a potential leak.
While you wait for a 24/7 emergency plumber to arrive, it is highly recommended that you turn off the water main to prevent any further damage being done.
Gas can be highly toxic, dangerous and can cause potential explosions and injury, and is one of the more drastic plumbing emergencies. If you smell gas, you should quickly and safely turn off all gas appliances and open doors and windows to let the fumes dissipate. If the smell continues or is particularly strong, we recommend that you contact a 24/7 emergency plumber immediately so that they can come and ensure your house is safe.
Blocked drains & toilets
Blocked drains can happen at any time and will always cause problems and unneeded stress for homeowners and those living with them. If you smell or notice sewerage coming up through your piping systems or toilet, it usually means that your sewer line is blocked. Consequently, plumbing emergencies such as a blockage should be fixed professionally as soon as possible and is worth contacting a 24/7 emergency plumber.
Hot water system breakdowns
Having no hot water is not a life or death scenario – it is, however, certainly a big problem and an inconvenient one at that. However, it is also wise to assess the situation at hand as well. The solution could be as simple as checking the breaker box or, on a gas heating system, checking whether the pilot light is on. If these issues do not resolve it or you hear rattling sounds, you should consider calling 24/7 emergency plumber.
