There are a variety of plumbing emergencies that necessitate immediate attention from a professional plumber. Sometimes, waiting to call a plumber and address the issue can allow it to get significantly worse. In cases of leaking and water damage, you could even wait long enough to cause significant structural damage. With that in mind, here are a few plumbing emergencies that require the attention of a plumber:
Cracked or burst pipes pose an immediate threat of flooding unless the water is turned off and the pipe is repaired.
There are a few things that can cause an overflowing toilet. First, it can simply be clogged and require a plunger. However, the water must be turned off to prevent flooding and water damage. It can also mean that there is a sewage backup causing sewage to spill from the main line and come up through your drains and toilet. In either case, an emergency plumber can identify the problem and find a quick and efficient solution.
Drains can be caused be any dense material. Showers are often clogged by hair, dirt, and other debris, while kitchen sinks are clogged by leftovers, oils, grease, and other chemicals. If the drain is plugged too severely, it can cause flooding and damage to the pipes.
Sump pumps are designed to pump water out of your basement, which is especially necessary during times of heavy rainfall or melting snow. If it fails, it means that your basement will fill with water.
