WHAT IS CONSIDERED A PLUMBING EMERGENCY?
If you are facing a problem with any part of your plumbing system, you may be wondering if you need all-hours emergency plumbing service. In general, major issues that impact your family’s health, safety, or ability to use necessary fixtures are emergencies that require prompt attention.
Examples of plumbing emergencies include:
- Burst pipes
- Malfunctioning sump pump during a storm
- Overflowing or severely clogged toilet
- Sewer system backup
- Broken water lines
We encourage customers to call us as soon as they suspect something is wrong, no matter what the problem is. Our technicians will be able to talk through your situation with you and determine whether you need emergency-response plumbing.
PREVENTING FUTURE PLUMBING EMERGENCIES
At M.A. Williams, we believe that the best way to avoid plumbing emergencies is to take the necessary preventative measures and treat your plumbing system with care. For example, insulating your pipes can prevent freezing temperatures from causing them to burst. Try not to flush too much toilet paper and only flush dissolvable materials to prevent your toilets from clogging and overflowing. Addressing drain issues as soon as they become apparent can prevent severe clogs and keep your sink’s drain clean.
