Plumbing is an integral part of any home. If the plumbing in your home is working well, it’s likely something that you’re not going to pay a whole lot of attention to.

There are some common emergencies you may encounter when it comes to your plumbing. Today, we will go over exactly what those emergencies may be and when you should call Complete Plumbing and Rooter for your 24/7 plumbing assistance.
Plumbing Emergencies You May Encounter
A Clogged Sink
If you’re washing your hands in the bathroom or doing the dishes in the kitchen and you notice that the water is starting to drain pretty slowly, you may be slightly annoyed, but it’s nothing to get too worried about. However, if you notice that the water is starting to accumulate and there’s no sign of draining, you’ll want to shut off the water supply to the specific sink you’re using immediately and wait a few minutes to see if there’s any change in the amount of water in the sink. If the water doesn’t begin to drain or if there’s no clear sign of anything obstructing the drain, the problem may be lower in the drain pipe and professional help is recommended.
A Clogged Toilet
Most toilets experience clogs that can easily be handled with a household plunger. However, there are times when you try to flush the toilet and you notice that the water is starting to rise and that panicky feeling starts to creep in when you begin to wonder what you’ll do if the toilet overflows. When toilets are clogged to the point where a plunger just won’t do the trick or you find that flushing the toilet is raising the water to dangerous levels, you should shut off the water supply to the toilet immediately and call for 24/7 plumbing assistance. Raw sewage can cause possible health hazards and toilet leaks can cause structural damage to your home. Don’t hesitate to call for assistance when it comes to a clogged toilet.
A Leaking Faucet or Toilet
When a faucet or a toilet is leaking in your home, it may be something that you find you are frustrated by, but you may not think of it as an emergency, especially if it’s just a faucet that is leaking. The truth is, whenever water is running in your home, or even leaking, it is costing you money. Not to mention, leaking water can also cause rust to build up and may lead to possible water damage in your home. The cost of fixing water damage is far more expensive than having a professional fix the water leak in your home. Even something that seems like a small leak in your faucet can end up costing you down the line if it’s not properly taken care of.
