Glebe Emergency Plumber

Emergency plumbing situations can happen at any time. Even though you have carefully looked after your fixtures and plumbing system, problems still occur.

Strat By Turning Off the Main Valve

In most plumbing emergency situations, the main problem is water leak related. First up you need to rush to where the main water valve is located and turn it off. Doing this, you will stop the water coming to your building and lessen the quantity of water coming out of the leak.

Got a Plumbing Emergency?

Here is a rundown of tasks and the times and if you should or may not need to request the help of professionals to them:

Overflowing Toilet Tank

When you notice that the water continues to flow even if you’ve already flushed it. The issue is usually in the tank and you can just switch off the shut-off valve by yourself. To do so, you may repeatedly adjust the flapper and run several tests to see if the overflow stops. If the issue continues, you’d need the support of a plumbing professional to adjust the float arm.

Clogged Drain

A blocked drain is a very simple problem your plunger could resolve whether the problem isn’t too severe. If the plunger is still unable to effectively eliminate the blockage you may also use chemical cleansers. For severe blockages however, you may need to ask the help of professionals in order for this to be effectively remedied.

Pipe Leaks

Leaking pipes are a common occurrence, especially if these are comparatively old. It’s ideal to ask the help of professionals. The best thing you can do is to shut off the water heater and then call a professional that you trust.

Leaking Faucet

A leaking faucet is the result of pulling the fixture too hard. Over time, it is going to loosen and would contribute to water leaking drop by drop. Although this is not entirely a significant plumbing crisis, leaks always meant wasting water. You can choose to fix this problem yourself. With the support of a wrench, you can tighten the fixture if this can still function. You may also choose to replace it entirely.

Burst Pipes

Now, this is one of the largest plumbing problems you’ll likely encounter. The first thing to do is to switch off the main water source so you can prevent flooding in the house. All other fixtures at home should be turned off for the water to fully drain. Turn off appliances that come in contact with water as well as the heating system of the house.

Water Heater Emergencies

Whether your water heater has extremely loud noises or water leaks, these emergency reactions will prove invaluable.

Standard operating procedures would be to switch off the gas or electricity. In many gas water heater units, twist the dial over the thermostat to off. For electrical types, the circuit breaker lever should be off.

Next step is to shut down the water supply of the water heater. If the water still continues to leak, you need to turn off the main valve.

And if not done so yet, give us a call.

Extremely Hot Water

It’s great to have a warm bath at the end of the day to relax, but if you noticed that the water from the shower or faucets is extremely hot then you have a plumbing emergency. The reason behind scalding hot water is that your water heater has overheated.

You can turn on the hot water showers and faucets to drain out all of the hot water, but you need to be sure that you can safely do this. Additionally, prior to attempting this solution please turn off the water heater first.

I write to comment on your two employees, David and Matt, who did a great job at our place. Particularly David, who had been quick and helpful and patient with the numerous questions which had been asked and painstakingly showing us what had caused those problems relating to the repair work and the condition of the bathroom. The reason why we chose Dr.Drip to do the repair work is because of its friendly and professional service which we had encountered last year when Dr.Drip sent out another employee.Once again, thank you Dr.Drip for employing such valued staff to do a job and the really make or day. I think they deserve a “pat on the back”
