3 Times You Should Call A Plumber for an Emergency


There are some plumbing problems that you can address yourself as a homeowner with an easy DIY solution. However, there are other times that you really need to get the help of a plumbing expert. This is especially true in the case of a plumbing emergency.

The question is, how do you know when you have a plumbing emergency? You might think the answer is obvious, but not always. You can keep reading to learn about three times that you definitely need an emergency plumber in Monroe, GA. This can help you to keep from second-guessing yourself in the time of a plumbing crisis. 

Significant Leak

If you have a leak in your home that you cannot address in the short term by putting a bucket under it to prevent any damage, that constitutes a plumbing emergency. Some leaks, like a leaky faucet or pipe, are just a drip here and there. That’s not to say it’s not a problem you want to address, but it isn’t necessarily an emergency. 

If there is a leak that you cannot stop, or a leak that has already caused significant damage to your home, give us a call. We want to help you stop that leak in its tracks and prevent any additional damage to your home. We know that a leak can wreak havoc when you consider damage to walls, floors, and your home furnishings. And that doesn’t even include the potential of mold and mildew growth around your home because of a leak.

Loss of Water Pressure

If you lose water pressure to your home, that’s a sign that there is damage to a major pipe coming into your home. In most cases, there is a tree root growing through one of the lines in your yard. There’s also a chance that a pipe got damaged in some other way. In addition to low water pressure, you may also notice that your water seems dirty and maybe even smells bad.

Unfortunately, low water pressure will not just go away on its own. Our team can assess the problem and offer a solution. If the problem is a tree root, we may need to reroute some of your incoming pipes to prevent the problem from happening again in the future.

Running Toilet

You might not think of a running toilet as being a plumbing emergency. However, if you have a toilet that runs continuously around the clock, it can waste thousands of gallons of water per month. This can add up to several hundred dollars more on your water bill. 

If you live paycheck to paycheck or have limited savings, this kind of expense can have a major impact on your bottom line. We definitely want to help you address the problem sooner rather than later. Investing in plumbing services to fix your running toilet is much cheaper than paying a high water bill each month.
