At Legacy Plumbing, we offer a wide variety of services, including installations, inspections, and repairs. Many of these solutions constitute regular maintenance—that is, they’re easy to schedule and plan for in advance. Unfortunately, life sometimes throws homeowners “curveballs” in the form of plumbing emergencies. And when that happens, you don’t really have time to get out your calendar and pick a day next week to have the job done!
Never fear, Legacy is here to help you clear these hurdles, as well!
When It Can’t Wait
The following scenarios should all be considered plumbing emergencies:
- Flooding – Flooding can occur when there’s a problem with your sump pump or when your water shut-off valve fails. Regardless of the cause, most homeowners realize that something’s very wrong when they discover water all over their floor…or dripping from an overhead ceiling.
- Sewer backup – Most houses have two kinds of water lines: incoming, which deliver clean water wherever it’s needed, and outgoing, which carry dirty water to the sewer system. When a sewer line is clogged or blocked, it can’t drain, and this creates a stoppage.
- No water flow – If a single sink or faucet in your home is out of commission, the situation is annoying. If none of the sinks or faucets in your home are working and you’re not sure why, then it’s a serious problem!
- Burst pipe – Pipe breaks are most commonly caused by trapped water freezing and then expanding inside of a pipe during the winter months. However, it can also happen year-round as a result of natural decay, physical damage (e.g., being struck by a heavy object), or a particularly nasty clog.
One thing these situations all have in the common is their potential to cause serious damage to your home or health if they’re left untreated. Bad smells, water stains, bacterial contamination, mold growth—the list goes on and on. Not every plumbing problem is an emergency, but the ones that are absolutely SHOULD NOT be ignored!
