When to Call an Emergency Plumber

There are many things that can go wrong with your plumbing, but in the eyes of your plumber, not all of them are considered an emergency. Mr. Rooter Plumbing is proud to offer 24/7 emergency services to help you out when you're in need.

Let's take a look at a few examples of plumbing emergencies.

Burst Pipes

Pipe bursting can occur due to severe weather changes, tree root invasion, corrosion, high water pressure, and clogs. A burst pipe can cause extensive damage to your home and cost you a lot of money in repairs.

Overflowing Toilet

When a clog becomes too much for your plumbing to bear, your toilet may begin to overflow. An overflowing toilet not only exposes your home to harmful materials but can also cause significant water damage to your floors and walls.

Sump Pump Failures

A sump pump is responsible for pumping the excess water out of your basement to prevent flooding should you experience extreme weather or a leak. If your sump pump fails to kick on when needed, you could be dealing with a serious problem, including flooding and water damage.

Clogged Sewer Lines

Like an overflowing toilet, a clogged sewer line can cause sewage to back up into your home. Not only is this unsanitary, but it can put your bathroom or kitchen out of commission and cause damage to your home and belongings.

Broken Water Heater

If you find yourself without hot water during your nighttime routine, this is considered a plumbing emergency. A broken water heater is inconvenient, and certain issues can be dangerous if left unrepaired.
