Written by Posted On Friday, 23 February 2018 23:17

Whether you are a renter or own your home emergencies happen, and when an emergency occurs that affects your water or water supply then knowing that you have the assistance of a 24 hour emergency plumbing service can make the difference between being uncomfortable or feeling like you are swimming in disaster and being able to deal with that emergency calmly and quickly. Here are 7 reasons why you may need to call an emergency plumber.

 Clogged Toilet- Most people, especially those with small children have experienced a clogged toilet at sometime in their lives. There is nothing worse than doing your “duty” then flushing toilet only to discover the toilet bowl is overflowing and you are faced with a reeking mess that needs to be taken care of immediately. Even if you get the mess cleaned up on your own, chances are you will still need to call a plumber immediately to find out what is clogging your toilet and to get it working properly again, before the next family member again floods your bathroom.

  1. Frozen Pipes- Many parts of the country spend at least a few months dealing with cold, ice and snow, but when that cold freezes your water pipes, you really need an emergency plumber to find where those pipes are frozen and to thaw them out before the ice builds up breaking the pipe resulting in even more costly repairs.
  2. Broken Water Pipes- Sometimes frozen water pipes can end up breaking and when they thaw end up turning your home into a giant wading pond, or sometimes water pipes can simply break to do old age or other causes. You can shut off your main water line to prevent further flooding, but most people need and want to have their water restored as quickly as possible, and that may mean calling in a professional 24 hour emergency plumbing company to repair those pipes and get your water flowing once again.
  3. Clogged Drains- It happens to everyone from time to time. You finish doing those dishes pull the plug and that dirty water doesn't go down the drain. You try and plunge the sink and may even use one of those crystal drain openers with no effect. You are left with the choice of leaving that stinking smelly water stay in the sink until you can make a regular plumbing appointment or call for an emergency plumber to get the problem taken care of quickly and effectively.
  4. No Hot Water- There is nothing worse that waking up in the morning, jumping in the shower, turning on that hot water and being hit with a spray of ice cold water! You've check you fuse box or your pilot light and everything looks fine, but there is still no hot water. You need to call an emergency plumbing service to check out your hot water heater and make the necessary repairs to get that water heated again.
  5. Broken Main Water Line- If the water pressure in your home has fallen and you find a wet and soggy area of your yard then chances are good you may have a broken main water line. A broken water line will only get worse, so you need to take care of that leak as quickly as possible with the help of a 24 hour emergency plumbing service.
  6. Garbage Disposal Problems- Garbage disposals can be extremely handy, but when then regurgitate what you put into them shooting that garbage up out of the sink, then there is little doubt that you need to have it repaired. While most time, garbage disposal problems can be handled with a regular plumbing appointment, there are times, such as when having company that you may need to call from an emergency plumber to deal with problem in a timely manner.
