Situations In Which You Must Call In an Emergency Plumber

In most situations, water may cause damage but is not necessarily a hazard. How do you then identify a plumbing emergency? We at King & Sons Plumbing recommend that if you face any of the situations outlined below, calling an emergency plumber is a step in the right direction.


You Need an Emergency Plumber in These Situations

1. Burst Pipes

Water pipes burst for various reasons such as poor quality fixtures, ageing, faulty work, cold weather, or excessive pressure. The water from the burst pipe can flood your property and cause damage to various features.

It isn’t easy for you to resolve such a situation, and your first reaction to the situation should be to turn off all water access points to your home. It means shutting off your mains tap located near the meter. Having cut off water access, you can now call the professional plumbers immediately to repair the pipes and examine other pipes.  They will carry out a check for any weaker sections in the pipes and take the necessary measures to rectify the situation.

2. Blocked Sinks or Toilets

When you find the toilets and sinks in your home blocked, it is an indication of sewerage or drains pipe problems. As soon as you notice a blockage, contact an experienced plumbing technician to assess the problem and resolve it. This will not only prevent further damage to your pipes but save a lot of your time in handling an emergency. Always remember that delay in calling a good plumber means allowing the situation to worsen.

3. Leaky Water Pipes

When your pipes show leakage, your immediate response should be to turn off the mains and call an emergency plumber.  In this way, you prevent further damage to your house and save water.

4. Gas Leaks

Gas leakage is hazardous because gas is highly flammable. Leakages in closed spaces create health risks such as suffocation, damage to the brain, etc. A gas leak is easy to identify because you can smell it. Turn off the home’s main gas valve, and it will stop gas flow to your home. Now open all the windows and doors for fresh air to come in and the leaked gas to escape. Also, call a plumber immediately.

While you wait for the plumber to arrive, turn off all electrical and gas appliances in the house and do not use any ignition like a lighter or matches, and make sure there is no naked flame in your home.

5. No Hot Water

If you do not have hot water during winter, you may wonder how to manage the situation. Some problem causes a lack of hot water in your water heating system. Only a professional plumber can set the problem right and ensure that you have hot water.
