24-Hour Plumber Emergency Plumbing Service, 7 Days a Week
We mean it when we say we’re available whenever you need us. Our friendly customer service is always ready to take your call and dispatch an emergency plumber 24/7. We won’t leave you wondering what to do or who to turn to. Instead, we’ll guide you through the process and quickly arrive to alleviate your concern.
The Emergency Plumbing Services We Provide
Some services simply cannot wait until the next morning. Whether you were woken in the middle of the night by a pipe bursting, or you’ve got family over when the water suddenly stops working, give our team a call for a rapid response.
Some of the common plumbing emergencies we're called upon to handle include:
No Running Water
If your neighbors aren’t experiencing the same issue, you may have a clog in the tap connection, old or poorly set up water lines, or corroded pipes. We’ll send an expert plumber to assess where this problem stems from.
Water Dripping From The Ceiling
Even a few minor drips coming into your home can be a sign of a more significant plumbing issue, lead to mold and mildew growth, and cause future water damage. A Benjamin Franklin plumber can inspect the issue to determine whether it’s a faulty faucet, poor sealing, a cracked pipe, or something else.
If you noticed your toilet was clogging more frequently leading up to the overflow, it could be a blockage in the vent pipe that moves air into the plumbing system to replace the air that pumps with each flush. On the other hand, if water is overflowing from the tank rather than the bowl itself, it’s a sign that your filler float is set too high. Either way, emergency plumbing service is necessary.
If your hot water hasn’t been used up by someone else and your other taps are still providing hot water, there’s likely an issue with your shower mixing valve that will require inspection.
When flooding occurs in your home, every minute counts towards quickly recovering with minimal damages. Not to mention, if dangerous bacteria are in the floodwater, it becomes unsafe for you to be in the house. There are several ways that flooding can happen, whether from severe weather, a defective dishwasher, an overflowing toilet, a malfunctioning washing machine, or a failing water heater.
Whether there’s root growth in the sewer line, something was flushed that shouldn’t have been, or a broken drain line, our plumbers can quickly diagnose the source before letting you know what the solution options are. We’ll inspect the drains with a camera and utilize the most effective repair means, including rooter service, Hydro Jetting, or our proprietary BioBen solution. If none of these methods do the trick, our experts will discuss replacement options.
If your blocked toilet isn’t draining, your safest bet is to call an emergency plumber. With the proper equipment and training to handle such situations, we’ll dislodge the block without causing further damage to your toilet or drain system. The last thing you want is to accidentally damage the pipe or push the blockage further into the toilet.
As soon as you notice water from a burst pipe, there are steps you can take to help stop damages from worsening. First, you should shut off the water main, and if the pipe is near any electrical equipment, turn off the electricity. Then you can help alleviate pressure buildup by turning on your faucets. Once you’ve taken steps to prevent things from worsening, call our team to repair your pipes.
No Hot Water
If you depend on hot water, getting it back warrants an after-hours appointment. Especially if your water heater uses gas because a lack of hot water could indicate a problem with your gas line. This is a danger that should not be ignored as it could lead to a fire hazard.
Large wet spots in your yard not caused by rain or water could indicate your home’s plumbing system has a broken pipe. You should address this immediately to avoid sewage bacteria permeating your grass and potentially getting into your drinking water.
Sewer Line Stoppages
Signs that your sewer line has a stoppage include foul odors that don’t dissipate, multiple clogs throughout the home, and unusually slow draining. While regular clogs can often be handled without hiring after-hours help, a main sewer line block is considered a major plumbing emergency. Keep everyone away from contaminated areas, shut off your water, and contact our team quickly to inspect the problem.
Burst Washing Machine Hose
If you notice dripping or pooling water under your washing machine, ensure the hose is properly connected—it may need to be tightened. If this isn’t the case, make the emergency plumber call before water can spread.
Sump Pump Failure
A failing sump pump leaves your home at risk of flooding and water damage. A clogged pump, broken float switch, faulty valve, and more could be causing your sump pump to stop working properly. Call our experts to prevent excess water from flooding your home.
Gas leaks require immediate evacuation and service. If you notice signs of a gas leak, such as abdominal pain, dizziness, headaches, nausea, chest pain, fatigue, loss of muscle control, pink skin, or bright red lips, evacuate your home and call your gas company immediately.
If you notice rust buildup on your pipes, it could lead to blockages, leaks, and bacteria getting caught and entering your water supply. Contact our experts to have your pipes repaired or replaced.

What To Do in a Plumbing Emergency?
Here are a few best practices to implement while waiting for emergency services:
- Shut off the water. If you’re unsure where the problem is stemming from, it’s safest to shut off the main water valve. If there is a leak coming from a specific place, you can shut off the water directly to that area.
- Don’t use chemicals. Using store-bought chemical drain cleaners may seem like a good idea, but the reality is that you may end up making the problem worse by damaging pipes.
- Assess the damage. The more you can discern what’s going on, the better equipped the plumber will be with supplies before heading to your property.
- Don’t delay calling a professional. Pushing off emergency services might lead to higher costs due to more extensive damages happening while you wait.
