What is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
We understand every plumbing issue can cause a nuisance but what issue is considered an emergency? Here are some of the main reasons to call an emergency plumber:
Broken Water Heater
One of the most common issues which we find is a broken water heater which can lead to water leaking near the supply lines. Internal rust and sediment buildup can also lead to your water heater being broken.
Burst pipes are extremely common in the winter months which is due to freezing temperatures, therefore causing the pipes to freeze and burst which can lead to flooding. If this is the case, ensure the main water supply has been turned off.
Sump Pump Failure
Sump pumps are critical in protecting your home from flooding as it is used to remove water which has accumulated over time, however, if you’re having issues with your sump pump then this needs replacing immediately.
Sewer Leaks and Overflows
If you notice your wastewater overflowing or your toilet won’t flush, then this may be due to a leaking or blocked sewer line.
Leaking Hoses on Washing Machines
A small thing such as a small rupture or a break in the washing machine hose can cause water leaking, and therefore can lead to flooding your home.
These are just a few of the emergency issues which will need an emergency plumber to attend to. If you’re unsure about whether your issue is an emergency, get in touch with us on 0191 580 4124.
