Not all water leaks are an emergency, but if you notice signs of extensive leaks or flooding, call an emergency plumber right away.
Malfunctioning Water Heaters
If you suspect an issue with your water heater, hiring a plumber or HVAC technician will likely save you unnecessary spending and headaches.
Sewer Line Stoppages
A sewer backup points to a major plumbing issue that requires immediate attention from a plumber.
If water freezes in your pipes, it can cause:
- Pipe bursting
If no water comes out of your faucet after turning it on, your pipes may be frozen. Contact a plumber right away to resolve the issue.
If water is spilling out of your toilet even after you’ve tried to unclog it, call an emergency plumber. Overflowing toilets can lead to bacteria growth, respiratory issues, and diseases.
Gas Line Problems
If you’ve detected a leak in your gas line, contact your local emergency plumbing service to fix the leak before it leads to anything more dangerous.
