Got a Plumbing Emergency?

Here is a rundown of Jobs and the times and if you should or may not need to request the help of professionals to them:

Overflowing Toilet Tank

When you find 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 conduct several tests to see if the overflow stops. If the issue continues, you would need the support of a plumbing professional to adjust the float arm.

Clogged Drain

A blocked drain is a very simple problem that your plunger could resolve if the issue is not too severe. If the plunger is still not able to effectively eliminate the blockage you may also use chemical cleansers. For severe blockages however, you may need to ask the help of professionals 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 caused by pulling the fixture too hard. Over time, it is going to loosen and would lead to water leaking drop by drop. Although this isn’t entirely a major plumbing crisis, leaks always supposed wasting water. You can opt to repair this problem yourself. With the help 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 problems you will likely encounter. The first thing to do would be to switch off the main water supply so it’s possible to stop flooding in the home. The rest of the fixtures at home ought to be turned off for the water to completely drain. Switch 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 most gas water heater units, twist the dial above the thermostat to off. For electrical types, the circuit breaker lever should be off.

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

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

Extremely Hot Water

It’s good to have a warm bath at the end of the day to relax, but if you noticed that the water from the shower or faucets is extremely hot then you’ve got a plumbing emergency. The cause of scalding hot water is that your water heater has overheated.

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

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”
