What to Know Before Calling an Emergency Plumber

Plumbing emergencies can happen at the worst times. What should you know before making the call to an emergency plumber?

No feeling is worse than realizing you have some kind of plumbing problem in the middle of the night or over a holiday. Thankfully, an emergency plumber is only a phone call away. We offer 24/7 emergency plumbing services in the Arizona areas that we serve to help relieve the stress of a plumbing emergency. Some things are important to know before deciding if you should call an emergency plumber and how to help minimize the potential damage to your home.

When Should You Call an Emergency Plumber?

In the moment, it may be difficult to fully assess your plumbing situation, and something small may feel like an emergency. The truth is, calling an emergency plumber is often more expensive than waiting for someone to come during regular business hours. It’s important to take the time and figure out just how critical the situation is; it could end up saving you money. While not every scenario needs a plumber right away, some would require emergency plumbing service, including:

  • Flooding
  • Burst Pipes
  • Frozen Pipes
  • Sewage Smells
  • Overflowing Toilet or Sink
  • Hot Water Heater Leaks

In some cases, such as pipes or water lines outside of your home, it can help to talk to your neighbors and see if they are experiencing problems as well. If they are, it could mean that the water utility company is actually responsible for the repairs. Most companies will generally have a team that is available 24/7 to repair the damage at no cost to you.

Plan for the Unplanned

Plumbing emergencies can happen at any time and sometimes without any warning. Taking some time to prepare for this kind of situation can make a huge difference in the amount of water damage done to your home. We recommend having the contact information of an emergency plumber you trust on hand. This way, you can focus on the situation during your plumbing emergency instead of searching for a plumber.

We also recommend that you familiarize yourself with how to turn off the water or any appliances in your home. Knowing where the valves to shut off your water are can make all the difference when you’re experiencing a plumbing emergency.
