Got a Plumbing Emergency?

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

Overflowing Toilet Tank

When you notice that the water continues to flow even if you have already flushed it. The issue is usually in the tank and you can just switch off the shut-off valve by yourself. To do that, you may repeatedly adjust the flapper and run several tests to determine if the overflow stops. If the issue continues, 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 eliminate the blockage you may also use chemical cleansers. For severe blockages however, you might need to ask the help 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 is ideal to ask the support 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 caused by pulling the fixture too hard. Over time, it will loosen and would lead to water dripping drop by drop. Although this is not entirely a major plumbing emergency, leaks always supposed wasting water. You can opt to fix this problem yourself. With the support of a wrench, you can tighten the fixture if this can still work. You could also choose to replace it completely.

Burst Pipes

Now, this is one of the largest plumbing issues you’ll probably encounter. The first thing to do would be to turn off the main water source so it’s possible to stop flooding in the home. All other fixtures at home ought to be turned off for the water to completely drain. Switch off appliances that come in contact with water in addition to 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 is to switch off the electricity or gas. In most gas water heater components, twist the dial over the thermostat to off. For electrical types, the circuit breaker lever should be off.

Next step is to shut down the water source of the water heater. If the water 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 is great to have a warm bath at the end of the day to relax, but if you noticed that the water in the shower or taps is extremely hot then you have a plumbing emergency. The reason behind scalding hot water is that your water heater gets overheated.

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

Just for the record I wanted to say that I have been extremely happy with Dr.Drip Plumbers and the way they have carried out what has been at times a difficult and messy job, fixing a pipe under my unit and restoring everything back to normal. They have been very professional and personable throughout the whole process (and always cleaned up after being here). I would certainly recommend them for other body corporate plumbing jobs.
