All homeowners have to deal with occasional plumbing emergencies. Clogged drains and sinks are standard annoyances, as are leaky faucets and toilets that keep running water. However, sometimes the troubles in your pipes, drains and other plumbing systems will demand emergency attention. Water entering parts of the house where it shouldn’t poses a serious threat, and massive water loss is costly.
When you sense a plumbing emergency, get on the phone to call an emergency plumber with 24-hour service, like Bell Plumbing and Heating.
Make sure you pay attention to these below signs, which could indicate that any of this might be happening in your home.
Leaking pipes: Water leaks are some of the most insidious and difficult issues to detect that can plague your plumbing, since they usually begin out of your sight and start to spread until you at last notice them—and by then they are already a serious plumbing emergency. Once leaks have spread enough, they will start to ruin building material, destroying plaster and warping wood. Leaks need repairs the moment you detect them, and it requires a professional plumber to properly seal them and find out the reason the leaks started in the first place. If you think you may have a leak but can’t find it, you can always hire someone like us that offers water leak detection services.
Broken main water line: The running water in your house that comes from the municipal supply reaches you through the main water line. Should this line suffer breaks or clogs, you won’t receive any water at all. This water line is the homeowner’s responsibility, so if you start to lose water pressure or notice water raising from the pavement in front of your home, contact a Denver plumber right away.
Broken sewer line: The sewer line serves the opposite function as the main water line: it removes waste water from your home and pipes it to the municipal sewer line beneath the street. If the sewer line becomes corroded or tree roots start growing into it, it could break and need attention from a plumber. If you notice uneven levels of water in the toilets in your home, numerous clogged drains, stains in the basement, and a damp lawn emitting foul odors, then you most likely have a damaged sewer line that requires emergency plumbing work to fix the problem or replace the sewer line.
We can’t emphasize enough how important it is that you have these three issues fixed the moment you detect them. The damage to your home could be catastrophic, and you risk losing your water supply entirely. Don’t let a plumbing emergency threaten your home for a moment longer. Fortunately, help is only a call away.
