FAQ's About Plumbing Emergencies
Toilet repairs: From broken, cracked, rocking, leaking, or blocked toilets. Anything that concerns sewage should be treated as a plumbing emergency.
Blocked Drains: In addition to further plumbing concerns, blocked drains can cause property damage and health risks. Even if a blocked drain is minor, it is better to be safe than sorry and call an emergency plumber to assess the situation.
Burst Pipes: A burst pipe can cause flooding, property damage, health risks, and, in the worst circumstances, electrocution. Turn off the main valve and main breaker and call the nearest emergency plumbing service.
Water Leaks: While unnoticeable, leaks can cause significant property damage. If not addressed immediately, it can cause structural damage to your building and a large water bill.
Gas Leaks: Gas leaks can cause poisoning, fires, explosions, lawsuits, and death. If you suspect a gas leak, it is imperative that you call emergency services for emergency repairs right away.
Hot Water Repairs: Damaged hot water systems can cause cold showers, blocked sinks, and tainted vegetables. If your hot water system is malfunctioning, call an emergency plumber.
Overflowing Drains: One source of overflowing drains is a blocked sewer pipe. Blocked sewage lines can cause health issues, so call an emergency plumber right away.
During any plumbing emergency, the first thing to do is keep calm and make sure nobody is thinking of fixing the emergency plumbing issues themselves.
The next step is to call an emergency plumber. Tell the experienced plumber on the line all the details you know; in turn, they will tell you the safest thing you can do as you wait for the 24-hour emergency plumber team to arrive.
It is impossible to put a price on emergency plumbing services since every emergency is different. The emergency service team of plumbers would need to consider the severity of the issue, the type of property, the location, the day of the emergency, and the time of day or night.
Given that 24-hour plumbers could work on weekends, public holidays, or at night, some plumbing companies may charge higher emergency plumbing prices. It’s not that the plumbing industry is heartless; they’re bound by the law to pay the plumbers accordingly.
Not to mention the fact that the plumber may be at another job at the time of the call, and he may have to drop the current, non-emergency plumbing job to get to you, which would mean that they may lose the current customer or offer rebates. But one thing is for sure: it’s better to spend a little more on an emergency plumber than to spend a fortune on repairs or face lawsuits.
As a general rule of thumb, NO! It is highly discouraged to do any plumbing work yourself, and more so during a plumbing emergency.
Trying to fix a plumbing emergency yourself may pose a danger not only to you but to the people around you, the environment, and the neighbourhood. If you want to do it yourself just to save money, it would only lead you to spend a fortune on property damage repairs (since insurance probably would not cover the cost since it was not a licensed plumber who did the plumbing repairs); lawsuits (if there were damages, injuries, or deaths); and plumbing repairs to the damage you aggravated but never fixed (in the best case scenario).
