Common Emergency Plumbing Situations

There are many plumbing issues that can be disruptive to not only your schedule and budget, but also can be a cause for concern to the health and safety of your property. Our 24-hour plumbers are trained and experienced in handling all sorts of different plumbing emergencies. Here are some common situations you may find yourself facing:

  • Burst, Cracked, or Collapsed Pipes: Freezing, sub-zero temperatures combined with growing roots from nearby plants and trees can pose a serious threat to the condition of your plumbing system.
  • Clogged Drains & Backed-up Sewers: Old clay pipes or flushing waste items like chemicals, food scraps, and other debris down the drains can cause your pipes to clog. Backed up sewers means your wastewater can’t flow out of your home or business for proper disposal.
  • Overflowing Toilet: Caused by flushing sanitary products, excess toilet paper and other items that don’t belong there. It’s important to shut down the water supply to locate the sewage backup and prevent flooding and water damage.
  • Failed Sump Pump: A working sump pump flushes water out of the basement, especially when snow melts and heavy rain falls. The moment this device fails, your basement could flood, so repair or replace your sump pump right away.

Preventative Measures and Maintenance

Regular plumbing maintenance and consistent inspections can save you and your property from a plumbing disaster. Whether it’s paying closer attention to what you flush down the drains, locating leaks right away, or replacing old fixtures like clay pipes, there are cautionary measures you can take to prevent back-ups, clogs, flooding, and other worst-case scenarios. Here are a few maintenance tips you can do to prevent a plumbing emergency:

  • Conduct visual inspections
  • Winterize plumbing systems
  • Avoid chemical cleaners
  • Schedule proactive replacements
