In our last blog, we began our discussion about the different types of plumbing emergencies you may encounter in your home. A simple plumbing problem in your home, like a clogged sink, a clogged toilet, or a leaky faucet or toilet, can quickly turn into a plumbing emergency if the problem is not properly tended to in a timely manner. Here at Complete Plumbing and Rooter, we’d like to continue with our list of plumbing emergencies you may encounter in your home, and when you should call Complete Plumbing and Rooter for 24/7 plumbing assistance in Chino.

More Plumbing Emergencies You May Encounter

Clogged Shower Drain

Having a clogged shower drain can be one of the most frustrating problems. No one likes to feel like they’re standing in dirty bath water when they’re taking a shower, something that’s supposed to make you feel clean and relaxed. The most likely reason for shower drain clogs are soap scum and hair buildup. When these problems go untreated, they can eventually cause severe buildup that normal unclogging remedies will not fix. The last thing you want to end up with is buildup that has gotten so bad that you’re left with a bathtub that won’t drain at all. We recommend calling a professional before this problem ever arises.

Leaking Water Heater

It’s important to regularly check your hot water heater to ensure that everything is working correctly. If you start encountering problems with your hot water, it may be the fault of your hot water heater. A hot water heater leak can be a major problem, not only because your hot water supply will be lacking, but also because a hot water leak can cause serious property damage. If a hot water heater leak has gone untreated for long enough, and your hot water heater’s valves have rusted, your problem may go from a simple valve replacement to the need for an entirely new hot water heater. If your hot water heater isn’t working properly, you’re likely spending extra money for your water to get heated. If you notice a leak in your hot water heater, call a professional right away.

No Hot Water

As mentioned above, if you’re unable to get a good supply of hot water in your home, the problem may be from a leaking water heater. However, the lack of hot water in your home could also be due to an electrical issue or another plumbing leak from the faucet you’re unable to get hot water out of. You’ll always want a professional’s help whenever it comes to electrical problems and plumbing. If you can’t figure out why you’re not getting your normal supply of hot water, a professional can troubleshoot for you and find a solution that they will, in-turn, be able to fix.

Sewer System Backup

If you’re experiencing multiple clogged drains and clogged toilets, as well as bad odors coming from sewage drains and water pooling in your basement, your entire sewer system may be backed up. Nothing is worse than finding that your whole sewer system is not working. If you have any signs of multiple clogs or bad odors from sewage drains in your home, call our professionals immediately to handle the problem before it gets out of control.
