No matter how often you maintain your plumbing, there’s always the chance of an emergency. Whether it stems from a clogged toilet, reduced water flow, or a leak that needs to be fixed immediately, 24-hour plumbing service is invaluable. At Roto-Rooter, our team is always a phone call away and can help you ensure that any potential damage from your plumbing emergency is minimized.

Take a look at the situations that call for immediate professional help below.

Major Flooding

There are many causes of major flooding, such as sewer backup, a burst water heater, clogged toilets, failing plumbing fixtures and sump pump damage. Regardless, major flooding is always a good reason to call emergency plumbers and receive restoration services as soon as possible.

Freezing Showers

If your shower is cold, you likely have a problem with your hot water heater. In some cases, the fix might be checking your electric heater’s breaker box. For gas heaters, you might simply need to ensure the pilot light is on. But sometimes the problem isn’t an easy fix. If you hear rattling noises and the simple flip of a switch isn’t getting your water back to warm, you need to call a reputable 24-hour plumbing service.

Wet Yard

When your yard starts to get wet spots scattered throughout it, it’s a sign that your main water supply is leaking and funneling water onto your lawn. This problem often causes a foul smell and is typically an indicator of a sewer line leak. If you notice a wet yard, leave it to the professionals to fix, as the problem may require major sewer line repairs or replacements.

Outdoor Drips

Always check your water spigots and keep an eye out for dripping when the faucet is off. If you notice a drip, it might be a sign of an internal leak. In the winter, this is often caused by exposure to freezing temperatures. As these drips can signify a serious issue with the supply pipe, you should call an emergency plumber as soon as possible to ensure that it doesn’t lead to severe water damage and mold.
