When to Call for a Plumber

We’ve all been here. It’s late on a Friday night and your struggling toilet has decided to quit working entirely. You start counting the inches of space left in the toilet bowl until water starts to overflow. You’re plunging and plunging and plunging, but nothing seems to be working. Surely you don’t need to call a plumber yet, right?

Well, the choice will always be yours, but a plumber can make your life a lot easier in those situations. Depending on how terrible or stressful your plumbing issue is, a plumber can always help. From little clogs to overflowing toilets that threaten the furniture in your home, a plumber always has the necessary tools to take care of your problems.

A plumber in Normal, IL from our team is ready to help you out. All you need to know is when to call us!

The Term “Emergency Plumbing”

What does “emergency plumbing” mean? Well, for starters, emergency plumbing can mean whatever you want it to mean if it’s both associated with an emergency and plumbing. Take, for instance, a leak. Not many homeowners would think of your pinhole leak as an emergency plumbing situation—but what if your leak is costing you money, occurs right before a holiday party, and it’s really making your life miserable? We’d consider that a type of emergency, and that warrants the need for a plumber.

More conventional emergency plumbing needs are gushing leaks, overflowing appliances, and other things that we usually think of when we ponder the idea of emergency plumbing.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains don’t seem like an emergency until they are. Think about it—your home’s health and hygiene depend on the functionality of your drains. As clogs get stuck in your drains, you will be unable to use them for the foreseeable future, and there’s very little that can be done about it until you call a plumber. So basically, the earlier you call one of our professionals, the better!

Leaks and Overflowing Appliances

These are what you probably think of when you think about emergency plumbing. A leak in your pipe that’s dripping all over the floor, or perhaps your toilet overflowing causing things to get dirty and damp—these are absolutely emergency plumbing needs. Whether or not you think you can handle them on your own shouldn’t matter, a professional can—and will—deal with this problem a lot faster and more effectively than you.

Other Issues

Do you have other plumbing problems that might not constitute as conventional emergency plumbing needs? Perhaps you’ve got a crack in one of your pipes, or you’re concerned about your water heater? Or maybe you’ve got a clogged drain? Please don’t just try to address this with a wrench and a family member. Make sure you call our team to have a professional take a calculated look at it.
