What Qualifies As A Plumbing Emergency?

Although you may want your plumbing problem repaired right away, that does not mean that it falls under the category of a plumbing emergency.  A plumbing emergency is not defined around convenience, but rather the urgency that pertains to serious damage being done to the property if the issue is not addressed right away.  Listed below are common plumbing emergencies that affect both residential homes and businesses.

Burst Pipes

A burst pipe is one of the most damaging plumbing emergencies. Conditions that can cause a burst pipe are aging, a freeze-thaw cycle, or corrosion. Before you call your emergency plumber, find the water supply line and turn it off.

Sewer System Backup resulting in sewage backflow

This is another major plumbing nightmare. Not only are sewer backups smelly and messy, but they are also expensive if not address immediately. Signs of a sewer system backup can include multiple water fixture clogs and water pooling onto the basement floor and the drain.

Broken Water Lines Causing Flooding

There are several underground issues that can cause a broken water line. These issues can range from invisible tree roots all the way to misplaced digging projects.  Our master plumbers understand that these issues can cause your property to become a soggy mess very quickly.  

Sump pump Failure

Sump pump failure requires a check of the “impeller.” The impeller can oftentimes become jammed. In order to fix this, it must be cleaned from debris. Other possible sump pump problems include not getting enough electricity a defective float switch.

Common Plumbing Problems that are not an emergency

Clogged Sinks

Imagine you wake up, are performing your morning grooming routine and you notice that your sink is not draining. A slow drain is not an extreme emergency because there are DIY techniques that you can try to
unclog it. However, if the clog is not clearing up to the point where the water flow has stopped completely, you will need your local professional plumbing experts.

Clogged Bathroom Fixtures

 Is your toilet leaking or not flushing? Is your bathtub or shower drains gurgling and not draining?  These issues can be stressful and very annoying, however, they do not constitute a plumbing emergency. In fact, there are some DIY tricks you can try to even fix the problem yourself. 

Even though these are not plumbing emergencies, you should still address the problem relatively quickly.  Unresolved clogs, in time, can allow leaks to cause structural damage. Further, clogs can cause raw sewage backup which will lead to problems down the line. Also, leaky faucets and toilets will cause your water bill to increase. Not to mention that it will cause rust to form and present an environment where mold/mildew will grow. 

How much do Marshfield emergency plumbing services cost?

Emergency Plumbing Services in Marshfield MA typically range from $50 to $125 per hour.  The cost generally depends on how much work is required and how much waste-water is involved.  Unfortunately, this price is higher than the standard plumbing fees.  This is due to the fact that in order to address the emergency situation, the plumber will need to cancel other non-emergency appointments.  This is why it is important to only call for emergency plumbing services if you are in fact dealing with an emergency situation.
