What is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
The definition of a plumbing emergency varies from one person to another. One family may call losing hot water an emergency while another will say that they can wait for regular business hours. With some plumbing problems, it’s a matter of personal preference and how much the problem will inconvenience you. However, there are other times when you should call for immediate service.
Universal plumbing emergencies include leaking pipes that are pumping water onto your floor and drains that are backing up into the house. In the case of a leaking pipe, start by shutting down the water line at the closest valve. In some cases, only the one line that’s leaking will be disrupted. If there is no shut-off valve, then you’ll have to shut down water to the entire house and call for emergency service.
When a drain is backing up into the house, the raw sewage poses a health problem. This is generally an emergency situation, and you can count on us to respond to your call quickly when this happens.
What are Some Water Heater Problems?
Water heaters are an important part of modern life, but they do have a limited life span. Most heaters last 10 to 15 years. As they near the end of their useful life, they won’t heat the water as efficiently. You’ll run out hot water faster, and it will take longer for the tank to recover. Rust and corrosion slowly build up along the heating element for the tank, and that rust can come through the tap. In an extreme case, a seam in the tank can rupture and send water pouring out along the floor. Watch for the warning signs, including reduced efficiency and discolored water. If you have any concerns about your tank, you can call us to inspect it and advise you on repairing or replacing the unit.
How Can I Keep My Toilet From Getting Clogged?
Toilet clogs are an inconvenience, and they become serious if you cannot get the line clear. The best way to avoid clogs is to ensure that only toilet paper is being added to the commode after it’s used. Paper towels, cloth, toys, food, and grease can clog the lines and make your toilet unusable. It’s also wise to encourage the children to use a little less toilet paper to avoid clogging the line with too much paper. The most certain way, however, is to have regular maintenance services conducted by professionals. These should be done once or twice a year and will ensure that your toilet drain is running smoothly.
