What may be an emergency for one person may not be as serious for another. However, there are some plumbing situations that may happen to you when it is wise to call a professional to deal with them. You know you need 24-hour emergency plumbing in Southwest Calgary when:
- A pipe bursts. This nightmare problem can lead to an extensive amount of water in your home that can lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to the structure itself and your possessions. After you call the plumber, you can try to cut back on the damage as much as you can by shutting off the main water supply and removing your valuables and other items from the flooded area. Depending on the scope of the problem, you may need additional repairs afterward.
- A drain is clogged. Sometimes all it takes is a plunger, but sometimes the issue is more serious. If the drain is backing up and the water is rising, call for help before you have to deal with flooding. This is particularly true if several drains are backed up. There may be a problem with the sewer system.
- A toilet has overflowed. While not only messy, this problem could become a major health issue if not addressed quickly. While waiting on the plumber, shut off the water supply to the toilet (usually located behind it).
