Emergency Plumbing Repair
When faced with a plumbing problem, you may wonder, “Can this wait until later, or should I deal with it now?” While some plumbing problems require immediate attention, like a burst pipe or flood, others can be in a gray area.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to help you decide whether you can wait to schedule an appointment or if you need help immediately.
Do You Need The Fixture Right Now?
While a burst pipe needs immediate attention, a clogged drain or toilet may not be the case. Before calling for emergency repairs, ask whether you can do without the affected fixture for a day or two. If so, then schedule an appointment, and if not, call for emergency repairs.
Can You Turn The Water Off?
Can you shut the water off either at the fixture or the main water valve if you have a leak? If you don’t have access to the water shutoffs, call an emergency plumber as soon as possible.
What’s the Damage Potential?
If you have a rapid water leak, you can try using buckets or towels to minimize the leak until a technician can arrive. However, if the leak is too big and you’re facing significant water damage by waiting, call for emergency repairs now.
If you’re unsure whether to call for emergency repairs or not, we recommend erring on the side of caution because it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
