What Kind Of Plumbing Emergencies Need To Be Fixed Straight Away?
When it comes to any plumbing emergency, it’s always best to hire a local Beachmere plumber such as the licensed and qualified team from Hughes Plumbing Contractors. We will attend to the problem as soon as possible. Smaller plumbing problems that are left unattended often become large plumbing problems that are expensive to fix.
Some plumbing disasters need to be fixed right away. Here are the problems you shouldn’t wait for:
Sewage Backing Up
This problem speaks for itself. If your sewer lines are blocked resulting in sewage flowing from your sink, bath or shower, call Hughes Plumbing Contractors today!
Tree Roots In A Sewer Pipe
Sometimes, those lovely trees in your garden or backyard can lead to major problems for your pipes underground. If you can smell sewage in your home or if your sewer line is backed up, it’s likely that tree roots have grown into your pipe, leading to it becoming blocked. If this is the case, you should contact Hughes Plumbing Contractors. We have specialist equipment like drain snakes and CCTV drain cameras that can clear roots from your drain fast.
In some cases, blocked drains can be cleared using a plunger and some hot water. However, if this fails you should always contact an emergency plumber to clear the blockage. Always be sure to avoid flushing solid objects or sanitary items down the toilet, and be wary of what you wash down the kitchen sink.
Hot Water Issues
Hot Water problems are the most common pluming emergency. Early signs of hot water system problems are rust-coloured hot water, a leak in the tank or a change in water pressure. If you notice these signs, contact a plumber straight away – damaged hot water systems can be very dangerous.
Additional types of plumbing emergencies like leaking toilets, carbon monoxide testing and pipe relining are best dealt with by contacting the experts at Hughes Plumbing Contractors.
