What is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?

Today, we want you to ask a simple question: "How do I tell if my plumbing is in crisis?" When your plumbing problems arise, you can either call for emergency services or schedule a standard service appointment. It can sometimes be hard to define what constitutes a true emergency in plumbing. Many of your plumbing issues could seem extremely urgent due to the potential for water damage. We are here to help.

We're plumber experts at Peoria, AZ. We are here to help you identify when you must make an after-hours phone call and what can wait. Let's discuss a few cases where you should call us right away.

Need Emergency Plumbing?

These are questions you should ask yourself to determine if there is an emergency in your plumbing system.

What's the Weather Like

Let's first check the weather. This may seem like we are going off-topic, but it really does have a lot to do with your home's plumber services. Arizona's extremely warm weather is what you want to avoid. This is the weather we see more often and can cause plumbing problems. The heat and the smell of a sewer can make your home uncomfortable. This can turn a benign situation into an emergency plumbing situation.

Will the problem cause more damage if it is left alone?

It is now time to weigh the benefits of waiting. Let's pretend that you have determined that what you're experiencing doesn't indicate a plumbing emergency. This issue happened outside normal HVAC hours. So you are going to wait until tomorrow to call a professional plumber to fix it. Do you think this is going to cause damage to your home? Leakages or problems with gas lines can put your house at risk. We suggest that you place these in the emergency area.

Can you turn the appliance/fixture off?

If you are having problems with a minor leaking fixture and can turn off the water flow, it may not be an emergency. We recommend that you do this as quickly as possible. Next, call a professional so they can come out to your home.

Do You Need to Use This Plumbing System Sooner?

It's not just about how frequently you use the plumbing system, but also whether it is considered a serious emergency. A plumbing emergency is when there's no water flow in your showerhead. If this happens to you, you will have only one bathroom. The same logic applies if you are having issues with your toilet. If you are in urgent need of a fixture/appliance, don't hesitate to call.
