When to Call an Emergency Plumber
Knowing when to call an emergency plumber is not always clear. Small issues often can wait, such as slow-moving drains or minor faucet repairs. More significant issues and problems which result in property damage require the fast response of a skilled emergency plumber. Knowing when to call an emergency plumber can help you save money and put a stop a major plumbing issue.
Common plumbing emergencies include:
- Gas leaks
- No hot water
- Main line clogs and backed up sewer lines
- Plumbing line breaks
- Sudden drops in water pressure
- No water coming from your taps
Many plumbing issues can pose health hazards, such as a sewer line backup or backflow issue that contaminates your drinking water, or a gas leak coming from one of your plumbing appliances. In these situations, it is essential that you contact an emergency plumber as soon as possible.
What to Do During a Plumbing Emergency
If you are experiencing a plumbing emergency, such as flooding, the first thing you want to do is turn off your waterline. This will limit the amount of water flooding into your home or property. You should also turn off your water heater to avoid a pressure buildup. If you can place a bucket or other receptacle under smaller leaks, do so as this will help prevent property damage from pooling water.
If you suspect a gas leak, you should open all your windows, evacuate your home, and call 911 or your gas company’s emergency line. Once you have seen to you and your family’s safety, call an emergency plumber.
