Lower Urgency Plumbing Issues

Overflowing Toilet

Is your toilet overflowing? An overflowing toilet is extremely inconvenient and can also spread unsanitary waste. Our plumbers have state-of-the-art drain cleaning equipment to address clogs fast. We’ll diagnose the cause of the issue & make any needed repairs so you can get your plumbing back in order.

Blocked Drains

Blocked bathroom, kitchen, or laundry drains can make tasks like washing dishes or doing laundry virtually impossible. And water backing up into sinks or tubs is an unsanitary mess. Fortunately, our plumbers can quickly clear blockages and get your drains flowing freely again.

No Hot Water

Waking up to no hot water for your morning routine can set your whole day off. But while inconvenient, this issue might not require an emergency visit. Give our team a call when you notice – we can often schedule same or next day service to get your hot water heater firing properly again.

Water Dripping from Ceiling

Ceiling water spots or even considerable dripping indicates a leak that needs professional attention. However, unless water is pouring from the ceiling or threatening electrical systems, the issue likely does not require emergency after-hours service. Schedule an appointment so we can find and repair the leak.

Freezing Showers

Is your shower starting off hot but quickly turning to frigid water? This annoying issue is likely due to a failing hot water heater. Schedule a service appointment with our team to restore consistently comfortable showers. Note the issue tends to worsen over time if left unaddressed.

Wet Yard

Do you have a mysteriously wet or muddy yard? Underground leaks can be tricky to diagnose without professional help. Give our team a call – we’ll come assess the severity of the issue. For minor leaks, we may be able schedule standard service hours for repairs. Major leaks risk further property damage if not addressed quickly.

Burst Washing Machine Hose

Uh oh, have one of the hoses behind your washing machine burst? This can certainly cause a messy flood! However, unless water is rapidly flowing into other rooms, this issue may not require emergency after hours response. Turn off water supply valves quickly then call us to contain the flooding. We can make repairs to get the laundry room back in order.

Rusted Pipes

Have NOTICEABLY rusted or corroded pipes? While this issue needs addressing, it may not require middle-of-the-night service unless pipes are actively leaking. Rust weakens the integrity of pipes over time. Schedule an inspection so we can assess the level of corrosion and risk of leaks. We’ll advise you on pipe replacement needs so you can avoid major damage.

Warning Signs You Need Emergency Services

With so much at stake, it’s crucial to recognize when professional help is absolutely necessary. While subtle leaks or backed-up sinks can generally wait until morning, the following require rapid response:

Significant Water Damage Dangers

  • Flooding from burst pipes, leaks, or weather damage
  • 3 inches of standing water from any source
  • Large moisture spots on walls or ceilings
  • Musty odor indicating mold from excessive moisture

Floodwaters spread quickly and permeate surrounding materials in minutes. Unresolved moisture enables toxic mold blooms carrying respiratory/infectious risks. By calling us immediately at the first sign of significant water or moisture issues, we can mitigate damage and risks.

Immediate Health Hazards

  • Flooding from burst pipes, leaks, or weather damage
  • Leaking gas lines causing nausea, dizziness, fatigue
  • Carbon monoxide leaks from faulty appliances
  • No hot water supply putting residents at risk

Especially with open cuts or wounds, raw sewage contact poses severe infection risks requiring rapid disinfection. Similarly, inhaling toxic gas or carbon monoxide quickly becomes life-threatening. We’ll promptly contain hazards upon arrival while implementing permanent solutions.

Additional Red Flags

While less hazardous, the following should still warrant an emergency call:

  • Strange sounds/vibrations from pipes or appliances
  • Visible pipe damage from age, pressure, ground shifts
  • Drain backups affecting multiple fixtures/locations
  • Total loss of water halting business, care facilities

Don’t downplay these issues – small problems become disasters without intervention. Trust our judgement if you’re ever uncertain whether a professional is urgently needed.

Non-Emergencies: When to Wait Until Morning

While major threats require emergency assistance, minor plumbing hiccups may not depend on after-hour services. Consider holding off on calls if you experience:

  • Slow-draining sinks taking >1 minute to empty
  • Leaks from faults measuring 1/8-inch or less
  • Partial clogs only affecting one fixture or room
  • Occasional drips from faucets under sinks or tubs

We understand late-night calls are sometimes unavoidable for minor issues. However, unless displaying emergency red flags, these scenarios allow flexibility to contact us during regular hours.

Unsure if you have an dire issue? Don’t fret! Call us anytime to discuss your concerns. We’ll help determine next steps to keep you comfortable until technicians can visit during business hours. Handle minor nuisances tonight using home remedies, then schedule non-urgent appointments tomorrow morning.

Emergency Plumbing Services Offered

From gas line repairs to floods, our team tackles virtually any urgent issue threatening your property or wellbeing. Familiarize yourself with key emergency services below:


Drain Cleaning and Stoppages

Clogged fixtures and sewer backups enable dangerous sewage overflows alongside property damage if left unaddressed. We offer two powerful options for unblocking blocked drains:

  • Industrial Drain Augering: Our heavy-duty augers clear objects, debris, grease, and tree roots from pipes up to 8 inches wide. By unwinding coils deep into lines, the rotating blades break up and extract troublesome clogs.
  • High-Pressure Hydrojetting: Using advanced nozzles, we blast pressurized water into pipes for deeper cleaning. The extreme water force scours pipe walls and cuts through years of buildup that regular snaking cannot touch.

Both methods provide rapid relief from backups. After drain clearing, our plumbers inspect lines to identify underlying defects enabling future blockages. If necessary, we’ll then repair cracked sections or clear invasive roots permanently.


Rapid Leak Detection and Repair

Unwanted water from difficult-to-locate leaks destroys walls, warps floors, breeds mold, and racks up bills. We help on both fronts through:

Specialized Leak Detection

Using advanced listening devices, thermal imaging, molecule tests, and other tactics, our technicians precisely identify leak sources without tearing apart walls blindly.

Swift Fixes

Once detected, we patch cracks, replace worn seals, solder loose joints, replace corroded sections. Whatever the remedy, count on lasting solutions.

No Water Situations

Total water loss cripples homes and businesses equally. To restore supply, we offer:

  • Broken Valve/Line Repairs: We replace broken pressure regulators, backflow preventers, and install new water supply lines.
  • Pipe Insulation: In winter months especially, we rewrap exposed outdoor pipes to prevent freezing and restore normal flow.

Don’t survive days without running water or other essential utilities – call us to reconnect supply immediately.

Sewage Backups and Floods

From neighbourhood line breaks to violent storms, overwhelmed drains often enable damaging backflows and floods. We help by:

  • Professionally pumping out standing water as quickly as possible
  • Scrubbing surfaces with disinfectants to neutralize dangerous pathogens
  • Tearing out bloated wall segments enabling trapped moisture and molds
  • Performing necessary demolition before reconstruction
  • Installing sump pumps and backwater valves to prevent repeat issues

Our mitigation process limits contamination risks while allowing rebuilding. We also work with insurance teams to facilitate seamless claim-handling.

Common Fixture Repairs


Clogged Toilets

We’ll attempt multiple methods like augering, flushing agents, removal, and replacement to return toilets to working order.


Water Heater Issues

From faulty control boards to broken pressure relief valves, let us identify and fix problems restoring hot water flow.


Failed Sump Pumps

Our technicians will install replacements and make recommendations to prevent future flooding.

Even if partial repairs restore the most crucial functions, depend on our plumbers for suggestions to permanently fix faulty fixtures and appliances soon.

What Should You Do While Waiting?

The average response time ranges from 20 minutes to over an hour depending on traffic patterns and your location. Use this period wisely to improve outcomes:

Shut Off the Water

If unclear where the leak is coming from, shut off main water lines entering buildings. This simple step immediately minimizes flooding threats. Just avoid electrical dangers by turning off power first before entering wet areas.

Clear Access and Entryways

Ensure technicians can easily enter your property by unlocking gates, restraining pets beforehand, and clearing clutter in work areas. Saving them time finding tools translates to quicker repairs.

Move Belongings from Risk Zones

In flooding emergencies especially, relocate furniture, electronics, and valuables from lower lying spaces prone to water damage. Simple preparedness prevents pointless losses. Consider raising items onto tables or upstairs if able.

Gather Background Information

Technicians operate most efficiently with some context. Be ready to describe when/where issues started and how they progressed over time. Capture video evidence if helpful. Details like recent disruptions from construction crews also provide invaluable clues.

Stay observant, organized, and engaged in facilitating smooth repairs after calling for emergency plumbing assistance!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering whether your situation warrants an urgent house call? See common questions below regarding our emergency services.

How much does an emergency plumber cost?

With upfront rate estimates, our emergency services cost only marginally more than standard repairs – no unfair late fees! Minor after-hours markups reasonably compensate technicians for exceptional availability and rapid response. Exact costs depend on parts, complexity, and minimum service charges.

How fast can you respond in emergencies?

We guarantee arriving within 1 hour of your call. Frequently, crews reach properties in as little as 25 minutes during late-night emergencies. Still, response times vary based on technicians’ proximity and traffic patterns when called. Let us know ASAP whenever plumbing catastrophes strike!

What steps should I take before the plumber arrives?

Follow our checklist above! Shutting off main water lines, clearing debris, gathering details, and containing leaks with towels accelerates repairs drastically. If sewage flooding occurs, preventing contact and tracking waste indoors helps plumbers focus on permanent solutions.
