Got a Plumbing Emergency?

Here’s a rundown of tasks and also the times and if you should or might not need to request the support of professionals to them:

Overflowing Toilet Tank

When you notice that the water continues to flow even if you’ve already flushed it. The issue is usually in the tank and you can just turn off the shut-off valve by yourself. To do so, you may repeatedly adjust the flapper and run several tests to see whether the overflow stops. If the issue persists, you would need the help of a plumbing professional to adjust the float arm.

Clogged Drain

A blocked drain is a very simple problem that your plunger could resolve whether the issue isn’t too severe. If the plunger is still unable to effectively remove the blockage you can also use chemical cleansers. For severe blockages however, you might need to ask the support of professionals in order for this to be effectively remedied.

Pipe Leaks

Leaking pipes are a common occurrence, particularly if these are comparatively old. It’s best to ask the help of professionals. The best thing you can do is to shut off the water valve and then call a professional that you trust.

Leaking Faucet

A leaking faucet is the result of pulling the fixture too hard. Over time, it is going to loosen and would lead to water dripping drop by drop. Although this isn’t entirely a significant plumbing emergency, leaks always meant wasting water. You can choose to fix this problem yourself. With the support of a wrench, you can tighten the fixture if this can still function. You could also opt to replace it entirely.

Burst Pipes

Now, this is one of the largest plumbing problems you’ll probably encounter. The first thing to do would be to switch off the main water source so it’s possible to prevent flooding in the house. All other fixtures at home ought to be turned off for the water to fully drain. Turn off appliances that come in contact with water as well as the heating system of the house.

Water Heater Emergencies

Whether your water heater has extremely loud noises or water leaks, these emergency reactions will prove invaluable.

Standard operating procedures would be to switch off the gas or electricity. In many gas water heater units, twist the dial above the thermostat to off. For electric forms, the circuit breaker lever should be off.

Next step would be to shut down the water supply of the water heater. If the water still continues to flow, you need to turn off the main valve.

And if not done so yet, give us a call.

Extremely Hot Water

It’s great to have a warm bath at the end of the day to unwind, but if you noticed that the water in the shower or faucets is extremely hot then you have a plumbing emergency. The cause of scalding hot water is that your water heater gets overheated.

You can turn on the hot water showers and faucets to drain out all the hot water, but you need to be certain that you can safely do this. Also, before attempting this solution please turn off the water heater .

I write to comment on your two employees, David and Matt, who did a great job at our place. Particularly David, who had been quick and helpful and patient with the numerous questions which had been asked and painstakingly showing us what had caused those problems relating to the repair work and the condition of the bathroom. The reason why we chose Dr.Drip to do the repair work is because of its friendly and professional service which we had encountered last year when Dr.Drip sent out another employee.Once again, thank you Dr.Drip for employing such valued staff to do a job and the really make or day. I think they deserve a “pat on the back”
