Anyone who lives in a house with plumbing, at some point in time, has experienced a plumbing emergency. Plumbing emergencies may vary from a simple leaky faucet in your kitchen to ankle-deep water in your bedroom, to clogged drains, and leaky pipes.

When to Call an Emergency Plumber
- Busted Pipe
A busted pipe is the most common cause of a water emergency at home, and it is one that certainly needs you to act quickly. Depending on what pipe has been busted in your home, and where, you might be looking at a large amount of water pouring into your home and damaging your valuable possessions. Rather than attempt the repair yourself, which could result in further damage, get on the phone to a plumber right away. Clear the flooding area to minimize the loss while the plumber fixes the root of the problem.
- Clogged Drain
Most of the time, your drains are working so well that you do not even think about them. But, if you have a pipe that starts back up and overflows out of the sink, it can quickly become a problem. While you may be able to ease the blockage yourself, it will be easier to take care of the situation in an emergency plumber. The plumber will know the most likely spots for the clogs to occur and will have the proper tools to remedy the blockage.
- Frozen Pipes
When you live in an area that is vulnerable to freezing temperatures in the winter, frozen pipes are a problem. Most of the time, you will know that you have got a frozen pipe because the water stops running to the faucets within your house. Do not make the mistake of trying to heat the pipes yourself to get water flowing again. A qualified plumber will know the proper procedures to un-freeze the pipes, as well as insulate them to avoid future incidents.
- Overflowing Toilet
Maybe there is no nastier mess inside a home than a toilet that is overflowing. To many homeowners, the operation of the bathroom is frustrating, so only getting the water to stop also causes trouble. The problem may be as simple as a blockage in the drain, but there are other causes as well. By bringing in a professional to diagnose and fix the issue, you will save yourself time and prevent the damage from getting any worse.
