A dripping tap here, a slow drain there…a joint causing water problems in your kitchen…freezing cold water from the hot water system. Have you ever experienced these types of plumbing emergencies? It’s very likely that you have; probably more often that you would like too. Plumbing issues in homes, is part of everyday life. At some point some of these emergency plumbing problems will occur. They will require immediate attention and swift action by the homeowner and an emergency plumber.
It is important that you don’t panic and keep your cool during an emergency plumbing issue; so that you are able to protect your home from further damage. That way, you can also get a plumbing on site as quickly as possible.
First, what constitutes a plumbing emergency? Here are some issues where you will need to immediately call an experienced and certified plumber to address the problem:
- Old pipes, leaking pipes
- Extremely hot water
- Gas leak
- Dripping taps
- Toilet troubles
- Foul smell
- Risk of flooding and other water issues.
When any of the above happens, immediately call a plumber to diagnose and quickly fix any issues. While waiting, there are some things you can do to minimise the water damage to your home.
