5 Reasons to Call an Emergency Plumber

It’s past five on a Friday and you are getting ready to have a relaxing weekend. At least, that was your plan until you go into the kitchen and discover a puddle of water growing from under the sink. You’ve got a leaking pipe!

After a scramble for towels, a bucket, and the valve to shut off the water feeding the sink, you sit back and start reevaluating your weekend plans. You can’t do much of anything until Monday since you can’t get a plumber to your home before then.

We are glad to tell you that you are actually wrong on this account! Leaking pipes are one of the many reasons that you can, and should, reach out for help from an emergency plumber in Riverside.

5 Issues You Can Contact an Emergency Plumber For

All too often we encounter people who have waited for days to contact us for plumbing services when they absolutely could have reached out to us for emergency services at any time. It is good to know what the issues are that qualify for emergency services so you can avoid struggling around a problem that you can get repaired ASAP.

  1. No hot water. Have you noticed that the hot water in your home isn’t hot anymore? If your water heater isn’t keeping up well with your hot water needs, it can be a serious problem especially if your system has a leak in the tank. Don’t ignore problems with your water heater and end up with icy showers all weekend.
  2. A pinhole leak. Are you picking up on the warning signs that you have a leak somewhere in your home? The sooner you get a leak taken care of the better it will be. If a leak isn’t caught early enough it can lead to water damage. Make sure you contact us for leak detection and repair as soon as you notice you have a leak.
  3. Clogged sewer line. Do you have multiple clogged drains in your home? Maybe you are getting a particularly bad smell from those drains as well. These are indicators of a clog in your sewer line which can be dangerous if left unaddressed. Make sure to reach out to us for professional sewer cleaning when you need it.
  4. Busted water line. You need clean water to keep your home operating. If something goes wrong with your water line that provides water to your home it is bad news. This is absolutely something that qualifies for emergency services.
  5. Clogged toilet. We don’t use outhouses in the modern era unless it is the only option and that is for good reason. If your toilet has become clogged and no amount of plunging is clearing the issue, make sure to reach out to us for help.

If you have a serious plumbing issue in your home, you can rely on Sweetwater Plumbing for the services you need.

We don’t charge by the hour, We charge by the job! Contact our team for emergency plumbing repairs and more.
