Can it Wait? Determining When Emergency Plumbing Services are Needed

Can it Wait? Determining When Emergency Plumbing Services are Needed

Plumbing problems are usually ones that no home or business owner wants to encounter. Not only are the repairs difficult to see and awkward to inspect, but if you do them incorrectly, you’ll be looking at an even more expensive bill in the end. But how do you determine if your plumbing issue is an emergency?

You should call for emergency plumbing services if:

  • There is gushing water from drains or pipes, especially if you can’t find the water shutoff valve.
  • You are finding or smelling backflow problems in your drains.
  • There is flooding of any kind on the property or under the landscaping.
  • You are finding water where there shouldn’t be, such as in walls, ceilings, vents, etc.

Your plumbing services can wait if:

  • You have a clogged drain.
  • You have a maintenance question.
  • You are looking for installation or maintenance services.
  • There are slow-running drains or constantly running toilets.

Because emergency plumbing services can be charged at a premium for the time and effort, it’s important that a property owner knows how to distinguish between a need that can wait until Monday and a true emergency. When you are looking for emergency plumbing services, be sure to contact a plumber you can trust and not just one that is available at the time.
