Emergency plumbing has made our lives so much easier by ensuring timely and convenient plumbing services at all hours of the day and night. You can now request for an emergency plumbing service 24/7 even during the weekends and on public holidays. One of the most amazing things about emergency plumbing is that the services offered are still at par with ordinary plumbing services that are provided during regular working hours. Most plumbing companies charge a little extra for their emergency plumbing services to cover the overtime remunerations of their plumbing technicians and other miscellaneous expenses that are incurred past working hours. But the extra service fees are really worth it because you enjoy plumbing services immediately thereby avoiding serious plumbing problems in your home. Emergency plumbers usually feature their emergency call number on their websites for instant service calls. These companies also list various plumbing emergencies that necessitate an emergency service call. We will now look at some of the most common plumbing emergencies that require the services of an emergency plumber.  


Leaky Pipes

One of the most common plumbing problems in any home is leaking pipes and fixtures. While it might not be considered a plumbing emergency if your facets and showers are suffering a slow drip, leaky pipes can necessitate an emergency service call especially if the leak is very heavy. Leaks can occur in both water supply and drainage pipes. A leaky pipe qualifies as a plumbing emergency only if it’s a heavy leak that can potentially cause the pipe to burst. Leaky pipes can also cut the flow of water into your house or cause a mess inside the house. You should not hesitate to call your local plumber if you have a heavily leaking pipe in your house.


Clogged Drains

Another most common plumbing issue is clogged drain pipes. Clogging or blocking of drain pipes is caused by various factors and agents including bad flushing habits, grease and oil residue accumulation in drainage pipes, underground root clogging, and many other issues. You should always try to unclog your drain pipes, toilets, sinks, and shower traps on your own using various DIY solutions before calling a professional plumber. But if the clog persists, then you have no choice but to request for an emergency Townsville clog service for a professional solution.


Sewer Backups

Sewer backups can be caused by drain clogs or by other clogging agents. Sewer backups occur when there is blockage in the sewer pipes. The sewer pipes get clogged thereby inhibiting the flow of waste water from the house into the septic tank. You should call an emergency sewer plumber if you notice a sewer backup in your house.


Water Heater Problems

The hot water heater is one of the most critical components of the home plumbing system. The water heater furnishes all hot water needs in the house. Your home water heater should always be in good working condition especially during the cold season. You should call your local plumber to fix your water heater immediately it starts malfunctioning.


Sump Pump Breakdowns

During the rainy season, you should make sure that your sump pump is functioning properly to avoid flooding in your house. If you are having some problems with your sump pump during a storm, do not hesitate to call a professional emergency plumber for assistance.
