• What to Expect When You Need Emergency Plumbing Service

    Plumbing emergencies are a bit like car accidents. Nobody plans for them, nobody expects them, and they tend to happen at the most inconvenient times. It’s always a smart idea to have the number of an emergency plumber handy, just in case. Program the number into your cell phone or post it by your landline phone so that you can immediately call for help when your plumbing system malfunctions.

    Recognizing Emergency Plumbing Problems

    When you call the plumbing company, it’s helpful if you can describe the basic nature of the situation so that your service request can be prioritized accordingly. Some of the most common plumbing emergencies include the following:

    • The water won’t turn on.
    • A toilet is overflowing.
    • The sewer line has backed up.
    • A pipe has broken.
    • Water is leaking.

    Once you’ve placed the service request, you can ask the company representative about the steps you can take while you’re waiting for the plumber to arrive.

    Knowing What to Do After You Call

    Depending on the nature of your emergency, there may be something you can do while you await the plumber’s arrival. If you have an overflowing toilet, for example, the priority is to shut off the water to prevent additional waste from exiting the toilet. Toilets have a shut-off valve located in the rear. Turn the valve all the way to shut off the water. If you have a broken pipe or water leaking from an undetermined location, you may need to shut off the main water line to the house. Walk around the interior perimeter of your home until you locate the main water valve. It’s typically on the side facing the street, in a utility area or basement. Turn the valve clockwise to shut off the water.
