Mr. Rooter Plumbing 24 Hour Emergency Plumbing in Albany NY
Plumbing emergencies can be frustrating – and messy! You have a million things to do each day and dealing with a break down in your plumbing system is not one of them. Unfortunately, most malfunctions are going to involve flowing water, and this is where the feeling of emergency comes into play.
The first step to take during a plumbing emergency is to locate the main water shutoff valve, or, the shutoff valve for the particular fixture or appliance that is malfunctioning. It is best to identify where these valves are before an emergency happens and educate each member of your family about them as well. Once the valve is located, shut the water off by turning the valve knob clockwise.

Some examples of plumbing emergencies that Mr. Rooter Plumbingof Albany can help with include:
- Leaks – Leaking pipes are a fairly common plumbing emergency. These seemingly simple issues can develop into complex and expensive repairs if left unchecked so, it’s always a good idea to have a professional take a look. Sometimes, a pipe will crack due to age or other wear and tear, other times a pipe fitting or joint comes loose. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Albany has the tools and the know-how to identify the cause of your leak and repair it quickly, before any further water damage is done
- Frozen Pipes – While there are several products on the market to help reduce the chances of pipes freezing, sometimes the temperatures drop so low it just can’t be avoided. Frozen pipes can be a major problem because as water freezes, it also expands. This expansion of a solid mass of ice inside of a pipe meant to control the flow of a liquid can cause the pipe to crack and sometimes break wide open. Once the temperatures begin to rise and the ice thaws, the broken pipes are now leaking major amounts of water everywhere. The professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Albany can work to replace the broken pipes, as well as provide recommendations for preventative measures that you can take.
- Clogged Drains – When a clog forms in the drain pipe of a sink, tub, shower, or appliance, the obstruction can cause a back-up of used or “gray” water. The gray water is typically full of bacteria from various sources and if left to accumulate in the basin of whichever fixture is clogged, it can be due to decay and produce more bacteria. This becomes a situation of standing water and it can be very hazardous to the health of you and your family. When the bacteria begins to breakdown and replicate, it releases gases and fumes that can be harmful to breath. Having a professional plumber come and remove the clog quickly is the best way to avoid this situation
