Signs You Have a Plumbing Emergency
How do you tell if you have an actual emergency on your hands? Here are some helpful tips:
You are concerned your house will flood
If there is any kind of flooding in your house due to a burst pipe, sewer back up, or failed sump pump, is this a huge plumbing emergency. Flooding can ruin your home and compromise the safety of your family and even your neighbors! You should get this addressed as soon as possible and call a reputable emergency plumbing company.
There is a sewer back up
Sewage backup releases physical air-borne contaminants, which could get you sick and pose a health hazard. Inhaling these gases could lead to cramping, vomiting, fever, and gastroenteritis. A sewer back up of any kind is a plumbing emergency.
A sewer back up also reduces or prevents your ability to run water, which makes it difficult to do daily tasks.
You do not have running water
You need running water to shower, cook, clean, and do other daily tasks. If you are without access to running water for a couple of hours, you could manage; however, it is difficult to go a full day without access to water.
Visible water marks in places water should not be
If you notice water stains in places that are unusual, such as at the base of your toilet or on your ceiling, you should be concerned. This could mean that your plumbing is damaged and leaking somewhere in your house. You will want to call an emergency plumber as soon as possible as the longer you wait, the more extensive the damage could be.
