Common Plumbing Emergencies
Plumbing emergencies happen all of the time. One minute something could be working fine and then the next, you have an overflowing toilet or a pipe burst. Here are a few common emergencies that require an emergency plumber and what you can do to keep them at bay until an emergency plumber can get there.
Burst Pipe – These are the holy grail of plumbing problems and will require you to call a plumber immediately. The hope is that you were home and saw the pipe burst right away, but it doesn’t always happen like that. The biggest problem with a pipe burst is that water is gushing out of the area that has opened up in the pipe. This means you are losing large amounts of water every hour that passes. In this situation, you will want to turn off the water to your home and call us right away.
Water Heater Stops – Trying to live your daily scheduled life without hot water is very hard. It is unacceptable to have to take a cold shower and if you have smaller children, it can be even more frustrating. Call us right away if this happens, so that our plumbers can come fix the problem for you or get working on a replacement. Sometimes flushing the water can help to get the water heater up and running properly again, but it is best for us to come take a look to determine what is happening.
Clog In Sink – This will usually happen when there has been food or grease that has been dumped down the drain. A clog can cause backups to happen and water to no longer drain down into your pipes. If this happens, try using a plunger to push the clog down. This may or may not work, but you will likely have to plunge several times to build up enough pressure. If this does not work, you can try to use a snake to put down the drain and pull the clog out yourself. If none of these options are working for you, call us and we will be able to come out and see what is going on. This likely means that the clog is down deeper than we think and you may need hydro jetting to get it out.
Toilet Is Overflowing – This is never fun to deal with and it can feel very overwhelming if water begins to overflow onto the floor. Grab some towels right away, to help avoid any damage to the area around you, and if you know what is causing the clog and think you can pull it out with your hand, that is one way to go about it, the next way would be to use a plunger. If the reason for your clog is because your car keys are down there or a child’s toy, you should call us right away so that we can attempt to get them out for you. Otherwise, a plunger will be useful in this situation and will probably take a few minutes to get the clog loose. Give us a call if none of this is working for you and we will get out to your home as fast as we can to help resolve the problem.
