What Are the Most Common Types of Plumbing Emergencies?

There most common types of plumbing emergencies include:

  • Water heater leaks: If you realize that hot water is being released from your faucets even after switching the tap to the ‘cold’ setting, then you are likely experiencing a leak in your water heater. To attend to it, you can take the following steps:
    • Turn off your water heater at the circuit breaker for an electric heater or turn off the gas line connection to your gas heater
    • Try to move all of the leaked water away from your water heater, using a draining hose would be effective
    • After your water heater has been shut off, try to stay away from it as much as possible 

 

  • Frozen pipes: Frozen pipes are commonly caused by severely cold winter temperatures. If you notice any damages on your pipes such as cracks, contact Aqueduct Plumbers to resolve it as quickly as possible. The best way to prevent freezing pipes in the future is by disconnecting your hoses, insulating the pipes, shutting off your water when you are away from your home for an extended period.
  • Common leaks: For leaks, there are steps that you can try to resolve your leaks. For a leaking faucet, you can try to tighten the direct water valve (if you are unsure of how to do this, contact Aqueduct Plumbing). For a leaking toilet you can try to turn off your water valve and check the tank at the back of your toilet to see if you notice anything strange or broken. If you observe your leak but determine that it is too difficult to resolve, you can contact our team for leak resolution and repair today.

 

What Can I Do Before an Emergency Plumber Arrives?

There are a couple of steps that you can take to make the plumber’s job even easier, this includes:

  • Breaking down what your problem is
    • If you are not unsure of what is causing the problem, try to look around the areas of your home that you suspect may have an impact on the problem. Most plumbing related problems such as leaky sinks, clogged drains and running toilets can be easily seen from the eye-test alone. However, some problems may be more complex, especially if they are located in your walls or pipes. For these you can try to identify the type of noises coming from your pipes if you witness any, otherwise it is best to wait for a plumber to assist you. For specific problems you may also want to consider these steps:
      • Leaking Sinks: look out for old parts that may need replacement
      • Clogged Drains: try to use a plunger to push the debris into the sewer line
      • Running toilets: try to replace the flapper itself and its valve 
 
  • Shutting off your water valve
    • Shutting off your water is the first method of action that you should take when experiencing a plumbing emergency. Wherever your plumbing emergency is taking place, you should look for nearby water sources and turn off their valves. This particularly includes shutting off your sinks and toilets. 
    • If your plumbing emergency appears to be more severe, then you should shut off your main water valve. Shutting off your main water will stop the flow of your pipes, so the damage will not get worse. To find your main water valve, you will need to look around the utility space where the main water line enters your home. When you turn off your water, make sure that the valve is perpendicular to the pipe as this indicates that the valve is shut off.
  • Turning off your water heater
    • The next step you should take in a plumbing emergency is to turn off your water heater. Your water heater will have two valves, including a red and a blue handle. The blue handle is the cold water inlet, which supplies cold water from the main supply to your water heater. The red handle is the hot water outlet, which generates and provides hot water throughout your home. By shutting off both of these valves, it will make it easier for the plumber to conduct the necessary plumbing emergency repairs for your home. 
  • Dealing with a minor leak
    • If you find a minor leak within your home, you can attempt to resolve it by using plumbing tape or wrapping a towel around the leak. If you are experiencing a continuous leak, you can place a bucket to collect the leaking water. You should also keep a close eye on the activity of the leak and tell the plumber if you notice anything abnormal .
