Plumbing Emergency FAQ

When can a plumbing problem wait?

If you have a clogged drain or toilet that you cannot fix yourself, you may be able to simply stop using it while you wait for a plumber. But when burst pipes or leaks threaten to cause property damage or create hazards like floods or electrical shorts, you've got a plumbing emergency. That's when you call a 24/7 emergency plumber. TIP: Knowing where your main water shutoff valve is located can buy you time for the plumber to arrive.

What should you do in a plumbing emergency?

A plumbling emergency can cause you to panic, so try to stay calm and follow these steps:

  1. Turn off the closest water source as quickly as you can
  2. Close the main water shutoff valve
  3. Turn off the water heater
  4. Find and address any smaller leaks around the area
  5. Open drains and spigots outside of your house
  6. Call a plumber and listen to their recommendations

What counts as a plumbing emergency?

  • Clogged sink drains
  • Burst pipes
  • Leaking pipes

If you are experencing problems beyond what you can solve on your own, it's time to call in a 24-hour emergency plumber.
