We’re Available 24/7 to Fix Your Plumbing Emergency
While some plumbing issues are simply annoying, others can end up costing you more than the repair itself, such as when a broken water pipe or backed up toilet are flooding your property and causing damage. For these instances, it pays to call an emergency plumber in Victoria and have the situation remedied as quickly as possible.
Some of the most common types of plumbing emergencies we respond to include:
- Burst Pipes — The two most common causes of burst pipes are related to either water pressure and/or a frozen pipe. In many instances, ice walls form within the pipe, and the increased pressure leads the pipe to rupture. If you have a burst pipe, be sure to shut off the main water line and then open up a water fixture at the lowest level of your home to let out any remaining water.
- Clogged and Overflowing Toilets — If you have children in your home, there could be any number of reasons why your toilet is clogged or overflowing. Not only can an overflowing toilet lead to a huge mess and unsanitary conditions, but it can also be an issue for properties that rely on a single toilet. If you’re having no luck plunging your toilet to free the blockage, just call Archie Johnstone Plumbing & Heating!
- Broken Fixture — When your faucet or plumbed fixture becomes a geyser, then you’ll know it’s time to call out an emergency plumber. Sinks typically have hot and cold shut-off valves either behind the sink or below the sink in some type of cabinet enclosure. Once you’ve tightened the valve and sealed it off, you can either wait for a plumber to open during normal business hours, or call now to schedule an emergency repair.
When to Call for an Emergency Plumbing Repair
The rule-of-thumb on when to call for a plumbing repair is fairly simple; if the situation is uncontrollable, creating an unhealthy situation, or putting an essential fixture out of service, then it is probably worth the marginal increase in service fees to call for an emergency plumbing repair. In cases where clean-up efforts and costs will be high, it only makes sense to call out a plumber as soon as possible to remedy the situation.
