How Do I Identify an Emergency Plumbing Problem?

Plumbing issues are never fun, but not every plumbing issue requires emergency services. Sometimes, your home or business’s plumbing problem can wait until normal business hours. However, it can be hard to discern between an emergency plumbing issue and a minor problem that can be left alone for a while.

How Do I Identify an Emergency Plumbing Problem?

To help you better understand when to contact an emergency plumbing professional, we’ve put together this list of a few problems that require emergency plumbing services:

  • Water leak. Leaks can be caused from a variety of issues, and if they’re ignored, they can cause extensive property damage. For this reason, a plumbing leak should be addressed as soon as possible. If your plumbing problem involves a leak anywhere on your property, you should call emergency plumbing services.
  • Water heater problems. Without a functioning water heater, your entire routine can be uprooted, which is why it’s important to handle water heater issues sooner rather than later. If your water heater isn’t heating your water, that constitutes a plumbing emergency.
  • Sewer backups. This is a problem that you’ll likely smell before you see it. Since sewer backups can pose health and safety risks to everyone in your building, you’ll want to call an emergency plumber to make sure the problem is solved as soon as possible.
