This is an indication that there is an issue with your water heater. Sometimes this can be solved by just checking the breaker box for electric heaters or checking if the pilot light is on for gas heaters. However, if there are rattling noises then it is time to call in the experts.

2. Major Flooding

Flooding can result from a sewage backup, a clogged toilet or a water heater. Water outpour can damage a home quickly and any flooding should not be ignored. Do not hesitate to call a plumber in cases of flooding.

3. A Wet Yard

If you notice any wet spots scattered throughout your yard then there is probably is a leak from the main water supply and bad smells indicate a leak in the sewage line. Such situations are best left to the professionals to examine and fix.

4. Extremely Hot Water

If the water coming out of your shower head and taps is extremely hot, chances are that there is a problem with the water heater. Call an expert immediately.

5. Burst Pipes

Burst pipes can cause tremendous damage in a very short period of time. This often occurs during the winter season because water freezes in the pipes. This need to be repaired immediately in order to avoid things like:

  • Electrocution
  • High water bills
  • Mold
  • Further water damages

What to Do in Cases of Plumbing Emergencies

Plumbing emergencies trigger panic in many individuals, but here are some of the things that you need to do to help you be prepared to take the next steps in resolving your plumbing emergencies.

Call for help

You cannot solve plumbing emergencies on your own, so it is to leave it to the experts to handle. Call your emergency plumber immediately, explain the situation and listen to any instructions they give you. Some emergencies can result in you having to leave the house immediately, so it’s best to call for help as soon as the problem is discovered.

Open Drains

Some water may be left in the pipes even after the valves have been shut off. You can get rid of any remaining water by opening your drains and turning on your spigots to release any remaining water.

 

Check The Water Heater

It is always a good idea to turn off the water heater in order to avoid any damage to the unit. Turn off the heater only after you have shut off the main valve in order to prevent heat from swelling up inside the heater. For gas heaters, turn off the gas first.

 

Shut off the water

Try to turn off the closest water source as fast as you can. Turn off valves in toilets or if possible the main water valve. This will help in making sure that no further water damage is induced by leaving it on.

 

What You Can Do to Avoid Emergencies

There is no guarantee of living emergency free. However, there are many things that you can do in order to protect your home. There are some plumbing emergencies that can be prevented if you are mindful of what is best for your home and it’s plumbing upkeep.

Here are a few plumbing emergency prevention tips that come from our expert plumbers:

  • Do not try to fix things on your own if you are not sure: If you do not know exactly how to fix something, do not try to fix it. Plumbing problems are often made worse if you try to fix it yourself and have no knowledge of what to do. Call a plumber and let them fix it for you to save yourself time, stress, and even money.  
  • Learn your system: Knowledge is the best way to keep your home protected. Get to learn where the main water valve is and how to shut it off should there be a leak and call for help.
  • Do not treat your drains like trash cans: common plumbing emergencies result from people mistreating their plumbing. Use your drains according to the way they need to be used. Prevent from using your drains as a means to get rid of food, toiletries, etc.  
  • Replace old parts: Keep track of the age of your equipment. Another major cause of plumbing emergencies include expired water heaters. Do not overuse your heaters past their life-span, for this can cause more damage and more money for you.
