Whether it is a busted pipe or a running toilet, how you react in an emergency is very important to fixing the problem. Here are useful tips and tricks for the next time you face a plumbing emergency.

How To Prep For a Plumbing Emergency

  • Plan: Know your plumbing system before disaster strikes. Locate the main water value as well as all isolation values on the individual lines. Purchase plumber’s tape and keep it alongside a plunger and some wrenches.
  • React: As soon as you realize there is a problem, shut off the main water valve or the isolation valve to stop the water flow. If you turn off the main water valve, remember to also turn off the water heater or set it on pilot to prevent hot water from building up inside.

When to Call an Emergency Plumber Near Me

Is something wrong with your plumbing? Can it wait until the morning or do you need help now? If you hear a leaky pipe especially late at night, it is difficult to know whether or not the leak has to do with a plumbing emergency or if you have time to wait until regular business hours. Before you decide to call for plumbing near you in Buda or Austin, we will discuss some of the things you might want to consider so you can stop yourself from spending more money than you need to.

What to consider before calling an emergency plumbing service:

  1. Are you going to use the plumbing right away? If the basement is flooding, definitely call an emergency plumber, but if your sink or toilet is clogged, it can most likely wait until the morning.
  2. If it’s a minor leak, can you shut off the water to that fixture? If so, then no need to call an emergency plumber. If you can, turn off the water, or try to take care of the leak until the morning when you can make an appointment with a plumber.
  3. Will leaving it alone cause more immediate damage? If you have a leak and a bucket is not enough to last you through the rest of the night, it is most likely time to call an emergency plumber. 

What Is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?

A plumbing emergency is a problem that requires immediate attention from a professional plumber. Examples of plumbing emergencies of when to call an emergency plumber:

  • Backed up sewer system
  • Broken washing machine hose
  • Gas line leak
  • Pipe rupture
  • Toilet overflow
  • Water heater leak
  • Water heater failure -- this can cause immediate damage

Do You Need Emergency Toilet Repair?

A running toilet can be annoying, but can you fix the problem yourself or should you hire an emergency plumber near you in Buda?

Below are  solutions to some of the most common toilet issues:

  • Problem #1: Random Flushing
    • Possible Solution: Drain the tank and check the seal on the flapper. It may need a good cleaning to create a better seal. If that does not stop the problem, the flapper may be deteriorated and will have to be replaced.
  • Problem #2: Trickling Water
    • Possible Solution: Remove the lid and make sure the floater is not detached or stuck. If that is not the source of the problem, check the refill tube. It should only hang a few centimeters over the edge of the overflow pipe.
  • Problem #3: Weak Flush
    • Possible Solution: The main cause of a weak flush is clogged holes along the rim of the bowl. Clean the debris to remove the blockage. If the problem does not go away, you may need to consider replacing the toilet or hiring a plumber.

Warning Signs You Have a Plumbing Leak

A leak in your plumbing system can often lead to serious damage and consequences. In addition to the financial cost, a leak can potentially ruin your yard, foundation, or flooring. 

Here are common warning signs of a leak:

  • High water bill: Unless you have increased your amount of water usage, a higher than normal monthly bill could be a sign water is leaking.
  • A decrease in water pressure: It is normal for lower water pressure when you have several appliances running at the same time. If the water pressure is weak when there is nothing else in use, there could be a potential leak.
  • Noises: If you hear gurgling noises while running an appliance, or hear water running in the walls when no appliances are being used, this is a major sign of a leak and you should call a plumber immediately.
  • Rotten Egg or Bad Smell: Bad odors around running water can often be caused by a leak. Natural gases and certain bacteria can potentially seep into your water supply, which causes it to stink. If the smell is only around hot water, the problem might be with your water heater. However, if you notice the smell around both hot and cold water you potentially have a more serious problem with your water supply system.
  • Floor: Swelling, cracks in the floor, or warm spots can sometimes be caused by a leak underneath the floor.

If you recognize any of these signs, it is possible there is a leak somewhere within your plumbing system. For emergency plumbing near you in Buda or Austin, contact Plumber Near Me at (512) 991-8778.
