When it comes to problems with your residential plumbing system, there is really no such thing as a “minor” one. Sure, there are those problems that seem to be more of a nuisance than anything else, but a leaky faucet or a toilet that won’t stop running will still waste a huge amount of water over time if given the chance to do so. That being said, a dripping faucet or running toilet still is not exactly what you’d call a plumbing “emergency.”
There are plenty of plumbing emergencies that you may encounter in your home, however, and it is important that you get in touch with an emergency plumber in Tucson right away when you do. The last thing that you want is to be calling up random plumbing companies in the middle of the night, only to find that they don’t even offer emergency plumbing services. When you call our number, you won’t just hear ongoing ringing. You’ll be able to schedule emergency services that will have your problem resolved ASAP.
But What Is a Plumbing Emergency?
So we gave you a couple of examples of problems that are not quite emergencies. That does beg the question, however, of what actually constitutes an emergency. There are a lot of different situations that do, and ultimately, you are going to be the one deciding if you’ve got an emergency on your hands. After all, we’ll need to field the call before we can come out to fix the problem!
One reason to schedule emergency plumbing services, for instance, would be if you have a sewage backup in your home. Obviously, we hope that you never encounter this problem. It’s not one that anyone would ever want to run into. These things do happen, however, and obviously this is not a problem that can wait until normal operating hours resume.
While the example of a sewage backup shows that some problems can create very unhygienic living conditions that could even be dangerous, there is also the condition of your property to consider. If you have a serious water leak, for instance, you can shut the water off entirely in most cases—but then you cannot use any water anywhere in your home. If you have a ruptured water line, on the other hand, you cannot even shut the water off. Having that problem resolved promptly is necessary if you’re hoping to avoid serious damages to your house.
There is also a matter of convenience to consider. You could probably go a few days without hot water if your water heater broke down on you, right? But what if you have a bunch of kids in the house who need to be up and dressed for school? You don’t necessarily want to wait for normal business hours to resume before dealing with a broken down or leaking water heater.
