When Should You Call a 24-Hour Plumber?

Sometimes, it can be difficult to know if your clogged drain that you find late at night is an emergency or not. Some plumbing issues can wait until the next day, but others are more serious and should be taken care of immediately. Here are some plumbing emergencies that necessitate calling a 24-hour plumber rather than trying to stick it out until morning.

  • Burst pipes. A burst pipe problem can get pretty bad pretty quickly. Lots of water can pour into a room when a pipe bursts, so if this happens in your home, be sure to shut off the main water supply and reach out to a 24-hour plumber.
  • Overflowing toilet. Like with a pipe burst, an overflowing toilet can cause a lot of water to fill a room in a relatively short amount of time. There are many reasons as to why a toilet may overflow, but a good 24-hour plumber will be able to help solve the issue in an emergency.
  • Damaged water heater. If your water heater is making strange noises or if you’ve noticed that the water in your home smells or looks weird, be sure to call a 24-hour plumber. Your water heater may be broken, which would require a trained professional to take care of.
