When to Call an Emergency Plumber

Emergency Plumbing Services

We rely heavily on our plumbing in order to complete daily tasks like showering, washing the dishes, and cleaning. And when something puts a stop to those everyday tasks, it can be frustrating. Luckily, the team at Tip Top Drain Pros & Plumbing Experts is proud to offer emergency services to get your plumbing back up and running in no time!

But what exactly is a plumbing emergency? Read on to discover when you should and should not call for our emergency services.

Flooding

If your home is at risk of or is flooding, this is an emergency. It is important to call your emergency plumber as soon as possible in order to keep the water from spreading throughout your home and causing more issues.

Overflowing Toilet

An overflowing toilet is likely caused by a clog. If possible, locate the shut off valve behind your toilet and turn off the water to stop the flow. The water flowing out is most likely contaminated, meaning you should wear protective gear at all times while dealing with the issue.

Burst Pipe

If changes in temperature, water pressure, or corrosion cause a pipe to burst in your home, you will have a serious flood on your hands very soon. Burst pipes can quickly release gallons and gallons of water into your home, so be sure to turn off your water supply and call your plumber quickly.

Sump Pumps

Sump pumps are a great tool that help remove water that may have found its way into your home, typically into a crawlspace or basement. If the pump fails for some reason, the surrounding area will soon fill with water.

Water Heater Problems

Another emergency our team will be happy to fix is a water heater issue. If you’re left without hot water or water that is too hot, give us a call. Other reasons to call us for a water heater fix include odd noises and leaks.

Gas Leaks

Gas leaks are a serious problem that require immediate attention. If your home is suffering a gas leak, leave the premises and give us a call right away.
