The very phrase “emergency plumbing” is enough to fill most homeowners with dread. No one likes to think about a serious plumbing problem in their home, but such problems occur from time to time, and sooner or later, your plumbing system will be hit with one. Unfortunately, not all of them take place during regular office hours. Some take place in the middle of the night or on weekends, when plumbers aren’t in business.
The good news is that many quality plumbing operations (including ours) recognize the need for emergency plumbing service, and offer such services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But when are such services necessary and when can you let the problem sit until normal business hours? In the end, only you the homeowner can make that decision. There are, however, several factors that can help guide you. We’ve provided a list of some of them below.
