So, What Qualifies as a Plumbing Emergency?
Generally, a plumbing emergency is any plumbing issue that cannot be allowed to continue any longer than is necessary. Usually, this is because the amount of damage the problem can cause is significant enough that allowing it to persist poses a serious threat to part of the home or the entire home. For example:
- Pipe Ruptures: A pipe burst or pipe rupture is basically a large leak. It can be caused by the pipe freezing, or advanced corrosion, but what matters is the water damage it can inflict on the surrounding area in a very brief period of time. A pipe rupture can easily flood the surrounding area in a short amount of time. You should turn off the water to your home and call for repairs if you suspect that you have a ruptured pipe somewhere.
- Leaky Toilet: This may not seem like much of a plumbing emergency, but the average toilet holds a lot of water in it at any given point. If there’s a crack in the bowl, or the tank, the appliance can release a lot more water than you would think. It’s not unusual for this kind of issue to flood an entire floor of the home if it’s not noticed in time, causing thousands of dollars’–worth of water damage. If you have a large leak in your toilet, it’s a good idea to call for emergency repairs.
These are just a couple of common examples of plumbing emergencies. If you suspect that you have a plumbing issue on your hands that just can’t wait, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
