Nobody wants to deal with plumbing repairs in their home. When drains clog and pipes leak, it can bring life to a standstill until the problem is corrected. But some plumbing repairs are bigger and more urgent than others. A single clogged drain sink in one of the bathrooms is a trouble that can wait for a scheduled repair with a plumber. Suspicion of a hidden leak usually doesn’t require a late-night call to a plumbing contractor. You should never ignore such problems, and we recommend you arrange for service at the earliest possible moment.
And then there are times when you’ll need 24-hour plumbing in North Dallas, TX immediately. We’re going to look at some of those situations. You can reach our plumbers 24/7 to come to your assistance with these: “You always win with us!”
A Few Signs That You Should Call A Professional for Plumbing Work
Make sure you pick up the phone and call our team at the first sign of one of these issues:
Loss of water throughout the house
When you turn on the faucets in your house and no water comes out, it’s obviously a serious problem. Before calling for a plumber, check that this isn’t a municipal issue—find out if your neighbors are experiencing a similar problem, or call the utility company. If the trouble seems to be coming from the water line to your house, you’ll need plumbers on the job right away.
Major drain clogs
What counts as “major?” It depends on which drains are clogged and if there are multiple clogs. A clogged kitchen sink is often an emergency. If you can’t clear the clog with a plunger or a drain snake, it’s time to contact a professional. (Never use chemical drain cleaners to “solve” this problem.) When numerous drains clog at once, it warns of a deeper problem in the sewer system, such as clogged drain vents or a sewer line that’s backing up. No matter what, you want professional plumbing assistance ASAP.
Massive pipe leaks
Small, hidden pipe leaks may take months before they create warning signs. When water starts to leak out from cabinets, up through the floor, or from a broken pipe, you’ll know right away it’s time to call an emergency plumber. Shut off the water to the house first (the shut-off valve is located next to the water meter), then get a plumber out to your house.
Leaking water heater
The water heater is a crucial part of the plumbing system that you use daily. Any sign of water leaking from the water heater is an emergency. Moving fast with repairs may save you from having to replace the entire water heater, as well as major water damage.
This is probably the most common plumbing emergency that sends people into a panic. You can quickly stop the flow of water by turn the feed valve to the toilet or rigging up the chain in tank. Once that’s done, you can call for a 24/7 plumber to fix the problem and help prevent further water damage and unhygienic conditions.
