What Is a Plumbing Emergency?
We rely on our plumbing systems so much that even minor issues can feel like an emergency.
At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dayton, we know how important it is to address every plumbing concern quickly and effectively to minimize any disruption to your daily routine and to avoid more significant problems down the line. However, some plumbing projects, such as drain cleaning or water heater replacement, can be scheduled for a more convenient time, while others require immediate attention, no matter the hour.
Call our 24-hour plumbers if you’re experiencing one of these common plumbing emergencies:
- Burst pipe – Whether there’s an obvious burst spraying water into your home or you experience a lack of water—possibly indicating an unseen burst, this is a situation that should be addressed immediately. Give us a call right away, and shut off the water main valve while our emergency plumber is on the way to try to minimize further damage.
- Sewer backup – Wastewater and sewage pose a serious health hazard to your family, as they can contaminate your property and—worse—your drinking water. A backed-up sewer line will generally send sewage or wastewater up into your toilet, tub, or sink, though a strong foul odor emanating from your drains can also indicate a backed-up sewer. If you notice these signs, call us right away.
- Sump pump failure – During Dayton rainstorms or when the snow starts to melt in the spring, sump pumps can keep your basement or property dry. If your sump pump isn’t working, you could be at risk of water damage and flooding. A sump pump that doesn’t start up during heavy rainfall or peak snowmelt is cause for a call to our emergency plumbers to keep your property dry and safe.
- Water shutoff valve failure – Leaks from a broken water shutoff valve can cause just as much damage as a pipe burst. You may be able to ease the problem of a broken local shutoff valve by closing your home’s water main shutoff valve either before you call us or while we’re on the way. Still, a defective water main shutoff valve needs immediate attention from our emergency plumbers.

What to Do About Frozen Pipes in Dayton
Dayton is known for its frigid temperatures during the winter, leading to frozen pipes if precautions aren’t taken.
Moisture inside pipes won’t automatically turn to ice any time the temp drops below 32 degrees, but when it gets cold enough for the ground to freeze and remain that way for an extended period, water sitting in a pipe can freeze. Frozen water inside pipes can cause blockages and added pressure since water expands when frozen. This expansion can lead to cracks, bursts, and leaks.
Contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dayton anytime for suggestions to prevent frozen pipes, but if you observe problems during or immediately following a particularly cold period, we’re ready to help.
