When To Call For Emergency Plumbing Services
Most plumbing problems can wait for regular business hours. But when should you call for an emergency repair? Here are the most common plumbing emergencies that warrant getting immediate help.
Severe Water Leaks
A severe water leak is anything that spills water into the house rapidly, like a burst pipe or overflowing toilet. The longer the water leaks into your home, the worse the damage can get. Water can weaken the home's structural integrity and lead to mold and mildew growth.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure at one faucet or fixture could be clogged aerators or pipes. However, if you don't have good pressure throughout the house, it could be a more serious problem like a block in the main water line. Low water pressure makes it frustrating to do basic chores like washing and cooking.
As mentioned, an overflowing toilet can quickly spill water into the house. Furthermore, it can bring up toxic wastewater loaded with bacteria, pathogens, and germs that can make your family sick.
Water Heater Failure
Very few people in America consider hot water a household luxury; it's a necessity for daily life. When your water heater is past its prime, it's prone to losing heating power and water leaks. If the tank leaks, it's only a matter of time before it ruptures, and you have a flooded room on your hands.
At S and J Plumbing, our experts are standing by ready to help you 24/7 when you need an emergency plumbing repair.
Wheeling Water Heater Repair & Installation
The typical water is the hardest working appliance in most homes because it heats water day and night, so your family always has a supply when needed. However, water heaters don't last forever. The average lifespan of a water heater is between 10 and 15 years, and most systems give off clues they're getting ready for the scrap heap. Here are the most common signs of needing water heater repair or replacement.
- The water in your shower gets cold before you're done showering.
- You find yourself waiting for the water to heat up in the kitchen sink or washing dishes by hand instead of using the dishwasher because the hot water isn't working.
- Your water heater makes noises like popping, crackling, or rumbling.
- You have to turn up the temperature on your water heater just to get warm water, and then it only lasts for a minute before it goes back down again.
- You've noticed an odd metallic odor to the water, or the water is rusty.
- There is water pooling beneath the water tank.
Experts recommend flushing the water tank once a year and changing the anode rod every three to five years to keep your water heater in good condition and extend its lifespan as long as possible.
