Plumbing Emergencies

It might be hard to identify what counts as a plumbing emergency. Contact us right away when you are experiencing a plumbing issue. Here are some common issues that may require an emergency service inspection or repair:

Water Leak

If water is leaking anywhere in your house, and it is anything more than a drip, it is an emergency. If a pipe has burst completely, it can cause damage to the drywall or to the floor. This can also affect the structure of your home. Over time, even a slow leak can cause mold, mildew, and disintegration.

Excessive water pressure, ground movements, and aged pipework are just some of the reasons water pipes may break. This issue requires immediate attention to prevent permanent damage to your home.

If you are experiencing heavy water leaks, ensure you turn off the main water pipe immediately. We will assess the extent of damage and advise you of the necessary repairs or replacements.

Gas Leaks

Gas leaks are a safety hazard as they may cause explosions when left unattended. If you notice rotten egg odor, hissing sound near your gas lines, or withering houseplants, then it’s likely that gas is leaking in your home.

We advise you to shut down the main gas valve as soon as possible and evacuate from your property as you wait for our team to arrive. Once we’re there, we will ask a few questions about the issue and perform proper testing to locate the leak. This may include accessing lines in the wall, pressurizing the line with air, and isolating lines. As your trusted plumber in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, we’ll make sure that your home stays safe by avoiding future gas leaks.

Clogged Sewer Lines

If you have noticed a strange smell coming from your backyard and things are damp and muddy back there, even though it has not rained, you will want to reach out to our team. A broken sewer line can lead to a flooded crawl space or basement. It can also cause an odor that you and your neighbors will complain about for a long time. Sinks, toilets, and showers are not safe to use when you have a sewer backup.

Frozen Water Pipes

Although it is rare, pipes can freeze in Southern California in the latter part of the year. Your shower, sinks, and toilets will be affected if you have frozen pipes.

Water Heater Repair

If your water heater is simply not working, you may be left with only cold water for a few days. However, if your water heater is leaking, it is an emergency and you will want to have it fixed immediately because that can cause flooding. Be sure to turn the water in the house off and call us.

Clogged Drain

Although it may seem like no big deal, a clogged drain can cause a back up in other parts of the house. It is likely to be caused by a problem in the sewer line. Water back up can cause a flood and a flood can cause damage to your home. You can try to unclog your drain with a plunger or hot water, but if that doesn’t work, be sure to call a plumber. One emergency visit from our plumbers will not be as expensive as the damage a flood can cause.

How to Avoid Plumbing Emergencies

Let’s face it, plumbing emergencies are expensive and time-consuming. If there are precautions you can take to avoid a crisis, you will want to take them.

Remember never to pour grease or oil down the sink. You should always store oil, grease or fat in a separate container and throw it away in the trash when you are ready to dispose of it.

Although you may be tempted to hang plants and wet clothes from those exposed pipes in your house, it can be very dangerous and cause the pipes to break. Clothes and plants are heavy and water pipes are not designed to support such things.

Watch what you flush down the toilet. Even though things like baby wipes may say they are flushable, the pipes in your house may be older and unable to withstand having something that large flushed down them. Drop-in toilet bowl cleaners may not be the best idea either, because they contain harsh chemicals.

You should also watch what you put down your garbage disposal. Never put big pieces of food into your disposal and always scrape food into your disposal at a very slow rate of speed. When you hook up a dishwasher or washing machine, be sure to use stainless steel pipes, as rubber hoses are wont to burst and cause floods.
