What is a Plumbing Emergency?
It’s not always clear when you should schedule an appointment versus when a situation could become much worse if left alone. If you’re unsure, don’t hesitate to reach out and talk through what’s happening – we’ll help you through everything.
Common plumbing emergencies we can handle include:
Sink Clogs - If you can’t get the drain clear with a plunger or the sink is backfilling with water, it’s time to call the professionals.
Toilet Clogs - While a small clog wouldn’t constitute a late-night call, if you only have one toilet or if the water is overflowing, consider it an emergency. The last thing you need is to push the clog deeper or damage the pipes.
Broken/Cracked Pipes - Whether from corrosion, freezing temperatures, or a mystery issue, pipes can burst, and it gets messy fast. If you notice water leaking, turn off the water main and flip your faucets on to relieve built-up pressure while you call an emergency plumber.
Signs of a Sewer Drain Blockages or Sewer Line Emergencies include:
- Gurgling sounds from the toilet or within the pipes
- Water rising in the tub after flushing the toilet or using the washing machine
- Multiple slowly draining sinks, bathtubs, and/or toilets
Flooding - Flooding can happen in several ways, from defective appliances to severe weather or pipe bursts, and floodwater quickly becomes unsafe to handle due to bacteria spreading. We’re here to help!
Gas Leaks - Dangerous and not always easily identifiable, gas leaks can happen from corrosion leading to hairline fractures, or if the supply line becomes unseated from appliances. Natural gas has no odor, but many companies add another gas that gives off a rotten egg smell as a warning sign. If you suspect a leak, get everyone out (including pets)*, call your gas company, and then call us for gas leak repairs!
*Pro-tip: As you’re leaving, do not start your car engine or use any electrical devices to avoid generating a spark.
