5 Most Common Plumbing Emergencies
Posted in Emergency Plumbing Services, on July 14, 2020
Whether you live in a house or condo or own a residential or commercial building, plumbing problems affect everyone. Unfortunately, plumbing emergencies can happen at any time of day and can affect homes and businesses alike. When you experience a plumbing emergency, it is important to identify the root cause of the issue with help from a reputable plumbing company. A 24-hour plumber can help provide the assistance you need, even at the most inconvenient of times. Here are the five most common plumbing emergencies that may require an emergency plumber.
1. Clogged Toilet
A clogged toilet can come in many different forms. It could be making unusual sounds, leaking, overflowing, or refusing to flush. Although there are DIY tips for dealing with a clogged toilet at home, such as using a plunger, it is important to hire an emergency plumber if the problem persists. An uncontrollable overflow from your toilet could cause structural damage to your home or pose a health hazard to you and your family due to the exposure to sewage.
2. Leaking Washing Machine
Although many people can reliably use their washing machines for years with no problems, the weakest part of your machine is the water hose. A cracked or bulging hose can eventually result in a rupture that leaks into your home and causes damage. If you notice a broken hose or are consistently finding leaks, it might be time to contact a 24-hour plumber.
3. Burst Pipe
The freeze-thaw cycles of the seasons can wreak havoc on exposed pipes. Whether you live in a cold or warm climate, changes in temperature can leave your pipes vulnerable to breaks and bursts. A burst pipe can cause massive damage that is expensive and inconvenient to fix. A 24-hour plumber can help you fix a burst pipe or even provide an inspection to ensure your exposed pipes are properly protected from damage.
4. Clogged Sink
If water is refusing to drain down your sink, it may start as an inconvenience before becoming an emergency. Clogged sinks can cause a water backup that is messy and damaging. This is why getting the clog looked at right away can help prevent worse damage.
5. No Hot Water
Another common and upsetting plumbing emergency is a sudden lack of hot water. You might be showering or washing the dishes when the water suddenly turns ice-cold. This could be caused by a water heater, plumbing, or electrical issue and may require emergency support.
