When plumbing issues occur at home, you usually want to take care of it immediately, so that no further inconvenience or damage occurs. However, calling an emergency plumber Melbourne anywhere in Australia during the night or on a weekend/holiday can cost you a high premium. So, before you make that call it would be worthwhile knowing when to call immediately and when to wait.
At Alderbrook Plumbing, our skilled plumbers are always available to fix your plumbing issues. We are one of the most reliable emergency plumbing companies that you can call, when any of the following plumbing problems occur:
* There is risk of flooding. This is a plumbing emergency brought about, by a failed sump pump, sewer back up, burst pipe or water shut off valve. Flooding can cause significant damage to your structure, so it is a safety concern and obviously needs immediate attention.
* There is no water. When running water suddenly becomes unavailable, you need emergency plumbing. It affects your daily activities, including showering, cooking and cleaning and you are not able to use your facilities.
* There is a sewer back up. This issue will create a health hazard. Not only does it prevent you from using any facility associated with hot water, but also the ability to run water, which makes everyday activities problematic.
* There is risk of a burst pipe. This issue can cause flooding and no water.
You should be able to tell, if the problem related to your plumbing can wait or if you need to call immediately. For example, tap issues and burst pipes need to be rectified immediately, as they could cause flooding. Therefore, hiring a 24/7 emergency plumber is of prime importance, as it can resolve your concerns, without wasting much time and more expense.
The cost of hiring a plumber’s emergency services range from $100 to $150 per hour, with cost of afterhours plumbing jobs added. The following are the factors that dictate the price of emergency plumbing, so you will know how to manage your expenses, when the need emerges:
1. Emergency Call Out Fees
Average call out charges, range from $100 to $250 and cover the expenses spent on travel and equipment. Depending on where you live, it may take one -two hours for a plumber to reach your place.
2. Urgency of the Job
Calling for emergency plumbing in the middle of the night, on a weekend or a holiday can cost you more, as expected.
3. Level of Difficulty
Burst pipe repairs may require excavation and cutting work and a price will be given on site and the work will not go ahead without your approval. When a plumber needs to work in an confined area or an inaccessible space, time frames will need to be discussed on site. Again, no work will proceed until we receive your approval.
