When to Call your Local Emergency Plumber


We spoke with an expert who offers 24 hour plumbing services in Hendersonville on a daily basis. We discussed what it takes to be an emergency plumber and the troubles that emergency plumbers have (especially with regard to sleep). Jason, (the emergency plumber we spoke with) told us all about when a person should and should not call an emergency plumber. So here’s what we’ve come to learn:

Don’t Call an Emergency Plumber

Just because a plumbing service offers emergency plumbing doesn’t mean that they’re a simple 24 hour service. They are meant to be called in case of an urgent matter (or really just any matter that would result in them going out to your home and getting to work).

You should not be calling an emergency plumber if you’re trying to find out what pipe will work best in your home. He’s not on call to tell you about all the different types of plumbing pipes and how they work. This is information that you can find out through a simple Google search. He offers 24 hour plumbing for the simple fact that he’s willing to work on a house at any hour of the day!

You should not call a 24 hour plumber if you’re experiencing a minor clog. This is something that should wait until the morning. Chances are a clog is something you can handle on your own. Regardless of the problem you’re experiencing, please take a look at whether or not it is really an emergency.

Call an Emergency Plumber

If you’ve had a pipe burst in your home then you should definitely call an emergency plumber. If you find that there’s water flooding your home, this is another good reason to call an emergency plumber. These two things in particular are very good reasons for a person to contact a 24 hour plumbing service. As you can tell, these are major issues that could potentially cost a homeowner several thousands of dollars. The last thing you want is to pay tens of thousands of dollars on something that could have been prevented by simply calling an emergency plumbing service!

You should also call a 24 hour plumbing service if you find that your water is completely shut off. It’s important that you and your family are able to take showers, prepare food and much more. If your water is cut off for some reason then it would be a good idea to look for a plumber.

Aside from that, the last thing you should keep in mind is that you can call a plumber if your heat goes out. This is another very important thing (especially in the winter). Don’t go on too long without heat because it could cause harm to your health! Be sure to keep warm always.

In conclusion, please don’t call an emergency plumber for something that can wait over night. Some plumbers don’t mind, but most do. If it’s a real emergency then they’ll be happy to come out and see you and address the problem you’re facing. However if it isn’t a real emergency then they aren’t going to be very happy to go see you. Jason (our Hendersonville emergency plumber) is thanked for his contributions to this article.
