Common Emergency Plumbing Services

Here are the most common plumbing emergencies you might experience and how to identify them, so getting them repaired doesn't cost you a fortune. Remember, time is always a factor, so calling a plumber right away is a good idea.

Broken or Busted Pipes

Sometimes, it's easy to know a pipe has burst because there is water flowing from the floor or walls. But there are some harder to spot signs to look out for.

If a pipe has burst, here's what you do:

  1. The first thing to do is shut off the water.
  2. After that's done, open a faucet to relieve any remaining water pressure in the pipes.
  3. Call a plumber.
  4. Start cleaning up the water with mops, buckets, shop vacuum, rags, towels, etc. This helps reduce the chance of mold developing.

Slab Leaks

Slab leaks are among the worst plumbing emergencies you can have since the damage to your home can cost you thousands of dollars. This is why early detection is important.

Here's what you can do to check if you have a slab leak:

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, it's time to call a plumber to investigate.

No Hot Water

Sometimes, no hot water is a sign of an emergency plumbing problem, but other times, it's a result of how the hot water heater is being used. If have you have extra people over, and the shower is being used more, you can run out of hot water. The solution is just to wait for the water heater to re-heat the water. Always consider the size of your hot water heater and make sure it's appropriate for your needs.

Here's some other things to look out for:

Gas Water Heaters

Electric Water Heaters

Clogged Drains

Unless your drain is overflowing and spreading water everywhere, clogs can usually be solved by some DIY solutions.

If you have a clogged drain, here are some DIY steps you can take to fix if yourself:

Sometimes the above isn't good enough and uncommon solutions like a plumber's snake are needed. That's when you should call the experts at David Gray Plumbing to get the job done.

There are also some preventative measures you can put into place so ensure the drains in your kitchen or bathroom don't get clogged.

Keep in mind, store bought drain cleaners contain dangerous chemicals that can damage your plumbing. Never use products like Draino to fix a clog.

Backed Up Sewer System

Along with slab leaks, a backed-up sewer system can be among the costliest repairs, and they pose a potential health and sanitation risk. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the warning signs so you can avoid this horrible experience.

These situations can arise from just a single drain or from the main sewer line. If it's a single drain, then you might be experiencing a simple clog. If it's the entire house, then you'll want to call a plumber right away and not turn on the water or use any water appliances.
