What Counts as a Plumbing Emergency?
The simple answer is: "Whatever seems like an emergency." If you run into plumbing trouble you can’t solve on your own and you think it’s serious, then by all means pick up the phone and call us, no matter the day of the week or the time of the day. Even if it turns out not to be an emergency, you’ll be glad you had a professional out to check on it and see that whatever is wrong is corrected.
There are a few plumbing situations that are almost always emergencies:
- A busted pipe: This is unfortunately something that occurs too often during the winter and early spring when pipes freeze and then thaw. Shut off the water main and call for a plumber right away.
- Anything threatening flooding: You don’t need actual flooding water outside your house to create floods inside—broken pipe and fixtures can cause this! A sump pump can help you out, but you’ll want plumbers on the job ASAP to get to fixing the trouble.
- Loss of water: If the water to your house shuts off, it could be a municipal issue. Call the water company to check. If it isn’t municipal, you might have a busted water main—and that’s a major emergency that requires the best plumbers to fix.
You Can Limit Damage, But You Still Need a Professional for Plumbing in Calgary, AB
When something major goes wrong with your household plumbing, you can take a few steps to limit and mitigate the damage. When you have flooding of any kind, shut off the valve on the water main. (Take the time now to locate where this is so you know where to go.) If you have heavy clogging, you can try to break through it using a plunger or a hand-cranked drain snake—just don’t use chemical cleaners. When the toilet is overflow, shut off the feed valve and then put towels around the floor to soak up water.
But these DIY tips aren’t repairs. You’ll need a licensed plumbing contractor for that. So as soon as you’ve taken a step like shut off the water, call Ace Plumbing and Heating and we’ll be out there to fix your plumbing. We serve Calgary, AB and take pride in offering value—quality service at competitive prices!
