When it comes to plumbing companies, everyone’s always offering you “emergency service.” However, what is a plumbing emergency, and how do you know if your problem necessitates a call for emergency service. It can be difficult, without all the knowledge of a plumber, to truly understand the problem at hand. Take a look at the following problems which can truly warrant emergency service from a trained and professional plumbing contractor!
Your main water lines are responsible for bringing clean, potable water into your home for drinking, cooking, cleaning, etc. When water mains break, the water coming into your home could be contaminated by any number of things that could get into the water, which could make you or your family very sick. If you suspect a problem with your water, it’s imperative that you get it checked out, right away.
Another problem that could warrant emergency service is a busted sewer line. While not as serious as a busted water main, a busted sewer line could also have adverse effects on your home. Sewer lines carry wastewater away from your home. However, a busted sewer line could bring flooding in your yard or your home.
Frozen pipes aren’t an emergency because of the harm they can do to you; it’s about what they can do to your system. When water freezes, it expands, which can put unnecessary stress on your system, which can lead to burst pipes and other plumbing problems. Unfreezing pipes right away will help limit the damage
