How Do You Know if You Have a Plumbing Emergency?

Published Date: December 8th, 2023 | Category: Plumbing Repair

Have you recently found yourself dealing with a big plumbing problem? If so, trying to fix the issue on your own is sometimes a risky choice. There are some situations that call for immediate attention from a plumber. At All Ways Drains, we have an emergency plumber for the Roseville area that is always ready for the worst from your system. And, as the expert emergency plumber for the area, we would like to tell you more about plumbing emergencies and how to know if you have one.

Do you have a plumbing emergency?

Here are a few of the signs you may have yourself a plumbing emergency:

Backups– If you have any drains that frequently are backed up, then you may have a broken pipe or a blocked sewer line.

Burst pipes– If you are experiencing leaky or burst pipes, let us know. In the winter, frozen and burst pipes can be a problem. Call our emergency plumber at the first sign of trouble so we can get the pipes fixed and your water working again. Burst pipes can cause serious damage to the home so it is essential you have them taken care of as soon as possible.

Bad Water Quality– Contaminated water, a funny odor to the water or if it is no longer clear visually shows that your pipes may be deteriorating. The pipes may not have broken or burst yet, but that may be right around the corner.

Clogging– If those drains and toilets clog a lot more often than they should (or ever did before), you may have a broken pipe. Sometimes it could point to a bigger problem like the sewer line itself, which, depending on the location of the issue is either yours or your municipality’s to fix. An emergency plumber can help solve the mystery.

Sink Holes and/or Soggy Spots– If you consistently find that certain parts of your yard are soggier than others, even the existence or emergence of what appears to be a sink hole—this may indicate that a broken pipe lies underneath. If it is on your property, it will be your responsibility and not that of your municipality.

Water Heater Problems– If you can’t get the hot water heater working, we can send out one of our experienced technicians to work on fixing the problem for you.
