Staying calm during a plumbing emergency is very difficult to do. Often water is spilling out everywhere and you are watching your home get ruined by water damage quickly. Unfortunately, water damage can also cause problems later on, like mold and dampness throughout the house. Insurance premiums go up and coverage may be minima. Don’t panic! Call the good folks at John the Plumber Ottawa to help you out with all your plumbing emergency needs.
Here are Some Common Plumbing Emergency Calls That we Get:
A burst pipe is probably a call we get the most often at John the Plumber Ottawa. Cracked pipes can come at any time of year but are definitely more common throughout the winter and spring. Always make sure you shut your main water off to prevent any more damage before a qualified plumber can come and help you out.
Though a blocked toilet may not seem like an emergency, if you have guests coming or multiple people living in the house and only one toilet, you probably don’t want to wait to get that toilet unblocked. If you are unable to unblock it yourself, you will have to call John the Plumber Ottawa in to take care of for you.
Losing your hot water, especially during the winter months, is horrible and potentially very expensive, especially if it is the unplanned expense of buying a new hot water tank. Having no hot water is not really feasible in a residential home in Ottawa. Other times, lack of hot water at only one fixture like a bathtub or shower think can just be a simple worn cartridge, which is inexpensive to replace.
A sewer back up Is also a valid emergency. If you hear multiple drains gurgling all the same time it means that your water is not exiting your house correctly. You want to avoid a floor drain or sewer backup at all costs. Should this happened to you, you will have the added headache of bacteria laden water in your home as well as the previous damp and mold problem discussed earlier.
A flooded basement is also cause for an emergency plumber to come by. If your sump pump stops working in springtime you are going to want to get that installed ASAP. The last thing you want in your finished basement is to have to redo the floors and the walls due to a sump pump that was not working well.
