Main reasons to call a 24/7 emergency plumber

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 pipes

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 leaks

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.
