Emergency Plumbing – What You Need To Know Before Hiring A Plumber
Plumbing gone wrong is never convenient, but it can be downright terrifying when it goes awry in the middle of the night. It’s easy to think that any plumbing problem is an emergency but knowing the difference can potentially save you hundreds of dollars.
Our emergency 24/7 service is for those plumbing situations where you need a plumber now and waiting for regular business hours would be catastrophic. You can easily know when to call an emergency plumbing service by asking yourself a few questions.
Will There Be Water Damage if I Wait?
If ignoring the problem will cause flooding and water damage, then it’s time to pick up the phone. The extra fees associated with an emergency plumbing service will most likely pale in comparison to the damage repair bill caused by extensive water damage.
Can I Live Without It Until Normal Business Hours?
If you can live for a few hours with the plumbing problem, then you could save money by waiting to call during regular business hours. For example, a toilet cistern that refuses to fill can be handled with a bucket full of water. A bathroom faucet that won’t shut off can be temporarily rectified by shutting off the cut-off valve.
