When Do You Have a Plumbing Emergency?

There are times when it’s quite obvious you have an emergency on your hands. For instance, maybe you have water rushing out of a burst pipe behind a wall, or you noticed pooling in your yard from a broken sewer line. There are other times, however, that emergencies are a little less subtle, but should still be dealt with quickly.

If you discover a warm spot on your kitchen floor, for instance, don’t brush it off as your pet having just been lying there. There’s a very real possibility that you have a broken hot water line under your foundation. This is known as a slab leak, and must be detected and repaired right away to prevent severe property damage.

When you are facing an emergency, the best thing you can do to prevent further damage is shut off your water right away while you wait for our professional plumbing technicians. We can promise to be there quickly, with a fully stocked truck for whatever plumbing issue befalls your Santa Barbara, CA home.

Can Plumbing Emergencies Be Prevented?

Not all the time, but there are certainly steps you can take to lower your risk of facing a huge plumbing emergency. Scheduling routine plumbing maintenance and drain cleaning, for instance, is a great first step. And since stubborn drain clogs often constitute a sudden drop in water pressure and subsequent emergencies, avoiding putting harmful items down the drain helps too. This can include:

  • FOG in your kitchen sink. FOG stands for "fats, oils, and grease" and the problem with it is that it hardens as it cools, building up until it creates an impenetrable blockage.
  • Anything but toilet paper in the toilet. This can include wipes (even those marketed as "flushable"), trash, meds and food.

Another way you can prevent a plumbing emergency is by taking care of your sewer line. This includes planning your landscaping when possible, to prevent the infiltration of tree roots in the line.

We’re the Team to Call for Quality Emergency Plumbing Solutions

When you need to contact a plumbing contractor to perform emergency repairs, you need to know you can depend on them! Fly–by–night companies don’t have the experience to move quickly and accurately, and they typically don’t have vans stocked with the right parts to get repairs started right away.

When you have an emergency, you can’t afford to wait. We understand that, which is why you can rely on our team for quality emergency plumbing solutions—contact us today!
