What Is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
The worst-case scenario for any homeowner is a plumbing emergency. Not only can these problems cause extensive damage to your home, but also they can be expensive to repair. But how do you know what problems are considered emergencies? Some plumbing repairs that can’t wait until morning include:
- Severely Blocked Drains: Blocked drains occur when foreign matter such as hair, food debris, grease, soap scum, and unflushable products end up clogging your drain lines. As a result, water and sewage can back up into your home or yard, potentially exposing you and your family to dangerous bacteria and mold growth. The resulting floods can also ruin floors, walls and structural supports of your house.
- Damaged Water Heaters: If your tank is not heating water you may need a new heating coil or there could be a problem with your burner. If your tank is gas-powered, safeties can fail for the burner allowing gas to leak into your home, posing an explosion hazard. Pressure relief valves can go bad, allowing pressure to build in the tank. Routine service can verify that all safeties are working as they should.
- Burst Pipe: These damaged pipes can rupture and quickly flood your home. Floods from ruptured plumbing can cause floors to buckle and will ruin any walls that are affected. If moisture is not removed immediately mold can begin to grow on the outside and inside of your walls, posing serious respiratory hazards. Periodic plumbing inspections can help you take preemptive action to prevent these serious emergencies.

Benefits Of Drain Cleaning
Hiring a drain cleaning company to routinely clean your drains can prevent a lot of problems. First, it will ensure that you never have a clogged drain that backs up sewage into your home. When drains begin to run slowly they will only continue to collect debris and grow. Eventually, the slow drain will stop running completely and you will have a plumbing emergency on your hands.
Plumbing clogs that plug up your drains can begin to decompose and allow sewer gas to leak into your home. Routine maintenance helps to protect the special plumbing fittings that are designed to prevent this from occurring. Additionally, drain cleaning can help extend the lifespan of your plumbing system and limit any major emergencies from occurring.

Should You Consider Water Heater Replacement?
Hot water tanks are rated by their life expectancy. Checking the nameplate on your hot water tank can tell you how long it is expected to last under normal operating circumstances, typically 8 to 12 years. If your tank is beyond its life expectancy, it’s important to plan for a replacement. As tanks age, they lose efficiency and can become dangerously compromised to the point of leaking or even explosion. If your tank is leaking, it is definitely time to schedule a replacement.
If you are considering installing a new hot water tank, you may be interested in exploring new, unconventional options. Conventional electric and gas hot water tanks are quickly being replaced by tankless water heaters. Tankless water heaters can be installed as “whole-home” heaters or “point of use” water heaters. Tankless water heaters provide instant hot water that has an endless supply.
If you are interested in replacing your old, inefficient hot water tank, call Paul The Plumber today! They will consult with you about your options and provide the plumbing installation for your new conventional or tankless hot water heater.
