Plumbing services are an absolute necessity if you own a home. Sooner or later, you’re going to encounter a plumbing problem in your home, whether it’s a leak, a clog or something involving an appliance or fixture. Sadly, not every plumbing problem chooses the most convenient moment to make itself known, and you might find yourself dealing with an issue in the middle of the night or during the weekend when most businesses are closed.
The good news is that we offer 24-hour plumbing services for those emergencies, and can be there anytime, day or night, to handle any problems your plumbing may have. That’s the easy part of the exercise. The tougher part comes in determining when to call in an emergency service, and when it might be easier to simply wait until normal business hours.
The first issue in determining whether you need to call a 24-hour plumbing service comes in whether you can halt the damage. That usually means turning the affected system off (which is never a problem), and/or stemming the flow of water. Your home should have a main water valve, which cuts off water to the whole house. Every family member should know where that is and how to turn the water off if needed.
With the water shut off, the flow from a leak or similar issue will be cut off as well. That, in turn, gives you the time to assess the damage and decide if you need an emergency plumber.
The next question becomes how long you can go with the plumbing in its present state. That largely depends on circumstances – a problematic toilet can wait if there’s more than one in the house, but not if it’s the only one – but if you decide the time before regular office hours it too long, call for an emergency plumber.
