You have a plumbing issue and it’s a bit after midnight, the weekend, or a holiday. Do you call a plumber right that minute or wait for morning?
You got back home early this morning after seeing Jurassic Park at Regal theaters in Pinellas Park. It’s the first time in a long time you’ve been able to enjoy a night out. So, what happens? You get home and the toilet overflows. You try to unclog it but can’t and now you’re wondering if this constitutes a plumbing emergency that justifies calling a plumber to come over and fixt it – NOW!.
The short answer is that anything a homeowner considers a plumbing emergency can be one. But, if you’re concerned about calling someone to come out early on a weekend morning, you might want to make sure it’s a true emergency. Otherwise, it might be able to wait until daylight. Or a weekday.
Emergency repairs directly affect the safety and habitability of a specific unit or building, such as a burst pipe, chron.com says.
Chron.com quotes a real estate broker as saying, “An emergency repair needs to be addressed immediately, because it impacts the health of the tenants and safety of the property. It can also be something that, if not addressed immediately, may have a negative impact on the condition of the property. If there is a plumbing leak, it would be crucial to address as soon as possible, to avoid damage to walls, flooring, cabinets, and other areas.”
Chron.com provides this rule of thumb, saying, these issues are almost always classified as emergencies:
- Sewage backup: If your sewer line backs up and causes flooding on your property, this is considered an emergency, as it may cause lasting damage.
- No running water: If you have no water, or murky water, an emergency repair is generally required to restore your clean water supply.
- Overflowing toilets: Not only are toilets essential to the home, but an overflowing toilet can be unsanitary and cause flooding with wastewater.
When in doubt, you can always call a 24-hour plumber, explain the situation and see what they say. At worst, you can make an appointment for plumbing service during a normal business hour.
