Most Common Plumbing Emergencies

Most Common Plumbing Emergencies

When it comes to your home plumbing, we get it — accidents happen, and things get out of hand. While it’s important to handle them as quickly as possible so little issues don’t turn into big messes, sometimes, things escalate quickly and you’re left with a messy situation. If you find yourself dealing with one of these common plumbing emergencies, take comfort in the fact that you’re not the only one.

Clogged Sink

When you’re recently-graduated son decides to shave his several-inch-thick beard into the bathroom sink, there’s no surprise that the next time you go to brush your teeth, the water just pools. While this may not seem like an emergency, clogs can have a big impact on your water flow and can interrupt your daily activities.

Clogged Toilet

When the toddler in your household decides to play “How much toilet paper can fit in the toilet,” you can find yourself with a pretty big clog — and potentially an even bigger mess. To get your commode back in good shape, you’ll need it unclogged ASAP.

Clogged Shower Drain

All that exfoliating wash and deep-conditioning shampoo may feel great on your body, but it’s killing your shower pipes. Between soap scum, dirt, hair, and skin cells, your pipes can easily get clogged with a buildup of gunk. All the more reason to invest in a cheap hair trap!

No Hot Water

There’s no better way to start your day than with an ice-cold shower right? Wrong! If your water heater isn’t delivering the way it should, you could be left with not only a cold shower but also dirty dishes and laundry.

Burst Pipes

Pittsburgh, PA is no stranger to the cold that leads to frozen, and potentially burst, pipes. If a pipe bursts in your home, you can end up with a big mess and need a full pipe replacement done by professionals.
