Top 10 Most Common Plumbing Emergencies
There are a number of plumbing emergencies that will require an emergency plumber to come and repair the issue. There are many common issues and in this article, we will list the top 10 most common plumbing emergencies. Having no hot water is extremely inconvenient and could be down to your utility company. However, this issue could be caused by leaks in your plumbing or faults in your water heater. In the cold seasons especially in winter, your pipes can become extremely vulnerable due to freezing and then thawing. Exposed piping can burst and this will damage your water systems. Water lines can also become broken due to external activities such as being damaged by tree roots or other repair work. A leaking water heater can cause damage to your home as well as make your heating inefficient and therefore costly.
Clogging in toilets, sinks and baths or showers is another common issue that can cause major issues in your home. Majorly clogged sinks can prevent water flow which can impede you in other daily activities. Clogged toilets can cause structural damage to your piping and can also cause health hazards. Clogged baths and showers are usually caused by hair and soap and this can cause flooding in your bathroom if not attended to. Leaky faucets do not seem to be an emergency but this issue can cause mold and rust to form in your sinks. Washing machine hose leaking can also cause serious problems due to the fact that your washing machine is connected to a main source of water. If your washing machine becomes rusted this can also cause flooding. Finally, your sewer system could become damaged and indicators of this are smells of sewage emanating from drains, water pooling around drains and gurgling toilets.
What to Do Should These Issues Occur
Some of the issues are evidently more of an emergency than others however all can cause severe damage to your home and therefore should definitely be looked at as soon as possible. Issues such as having no hot water could be indicators of other issues and if this is not your utility company that is causing this issue, it is highly recommended to call our expert team.

An Emergency Plumber You Can Rely On
In our September edition of our emergency plumber blog, we look at the importance of finding a reliable emergency plumber
It’s always a sad time when the summer ends however it’s important to be prepared for the winter months. As colder weather is approaching, it’s important to be prepared for the potential disaster of frozen or burst pipes. Having a reliable emergency plumber that you can call to help you should an issue occur is very important, as many plumbers will be booked up during the busy winter period. This will mean that the highly stressful situation that may be caused by a plumbing emergency can be amplified by not being able to find a trusted plumber. Costly damage can be inflicted by a burst pipe or a thawed pipe when the weather changes so it’s vital that you can call an expert to repair these kinds of issues if and when they happen. Further issues that more common emergencies can cause may also be more difficult to repair. This is because of the potential strain on companies that will be available.

Cold Weather & Heating Troubles
In our October article, we brace for the cold and discuss how you need to be prepared for potential boiler issues.
It’s getting colder since our September update so the need to have your plumbing looked at is becoming more important. With one of the busiest times for plumbers being in the winter, it’s important to ensure that you are prepared for any unfortunate emergencies that may occur. As many people do not use their heating in the summer, you’re always at risk of issues becoming unnoticed until they are fired up again in the colder months. When these issues flare up and you have a major issue, you are then caught in the busy season in which plumbers are always in high demand (mainly due to this reason.) As discussed in our last update, frozen pipes cause a vast amount of damage and this occurs with extreme changes in temperature. We’re not quite there yet so it’s very important to consider having your plumbing or central heating looked at. Although it may seem as if your central heating and plumbing are fine, there could always be an issue that you cannot diagnose without the investigation of a trained professional. The peace of mind itself is enough of a reason to have a service or check carried out but it can also save you a lot of time and money if an issue is identified before your plumbing or heating starts to see extended heavy use.
Tips to Prevent a Winter Emergency
Although you cannot fully stop an emergency in a lot of situations, there are some tips and precautions that you can take to help prevent an emergency. Ensure that you know where the stop taps are around your house so that you know how to turn off the water should you not be able to stop a tap from gushing water. This can help you stop the flow of water and can prevent substantial damage. Insulation is very important for pipes such as roof pipes and more vulnerable pipes. Ensuring that roof pipes are insulated is extremely important as the wind can drop temperatures extremely quickly. Ensure that you always keep a contact number next to your boiler or your stop tap to allow you to call a plumber. One of the most important things to do in an emergency is not to panic and to stay calm. Quick thinking but in a calm manner can help lessen the problem and prepare the faulty tap or boiler for a plumber to come and have a look at. Should you be going away in the winter then it is advised to allow a trusted neighbor to check on your house every few days or weekly as you see fit. This means that you are covered for if an emergency occurs and don’t have a nasty, unexpected surprise to come back to after a trip away. Following these tips can prevent a disaster but can also help a plumber who is repairing your boiler or damaged pipes.
