Chaos. When something as important as your plumbing system goes, your home can quickly become disorderly. As fundamental as your plumbing system is to your daily tasks around the home, it is frequently overlooked. That is, until something goes wrong. While some plumbing problems can in fact wait until morning and do not require immediate attention, you cannot afford to wait for others. So how do you make the call? Let’s take a look at 3 good reasons to call for an emergency plumbing service in Peoria.
1. The Water Just. Won’t. Stop.
Every homeowner should have a very clear picture in his or her mind about where the main water line valve is. Think about it right now. If you’re at all unsure, make sure you find out. During times when the water won’t stop coming out of a tap or from a broken pipe or fixture, then it’s critical you know where to stop all of the water in the house. That said, that valve is just a safety measure. You’ll still need a plumber to fix the cause of the issue before you can turn it back on.
2. All drains are clogged.
One or two slow-moving drains is not typically an “emergency”, but if you find that all of the drainpipes in your home refuse to move waste down through the sewer system, then you have a problem with the underground sewer line itself. Because this tends to shut down the entire plumbing system, it’s important not to wait too long to have a plumber come inspect it. A foul odor wafting throughout the home or property is also another sign.
3. No water.
This is obviously a very serious issue, though it can be the result of several different issues, and may in fact be a compound problem. So long as you’re up-to-date with your utility bill, you should give one of our emergency plumbers a call if you have no hot or cold water running throughout your home.
Don’t wait. Call this minute if you’re having any trouble with your plumbing system!
