There’s plumbing work that you can choose when and how to do, such as installing a new sink as part of a kitchen remodel or having new faucets placed. Then, there’s the plumbing repair work that you need to have done, as soon as possible. In this post, we’ll review some emergency plumbing issues that require immediate attention from the certified and experienced plumbers at Allbritten.
Leaking faucet or fixture
A faucet or pipe that is continually leaking is not only a major nuisance, but it’s actually wasting an incredible amount of water over time. Here in California, every drop of water counts, and addressing leaking faucets—whether that leak is a steady drip or a major torrent of water—should be a top priority. Give the team at Allbritten a call. Our plumbers are experts at solving leak issues and making sure all pipes are tight and not leaking water.
Water heater leaks and malfunctions
If your water heater has stopped working, you and your family are without hot water, impacting your ability to do dishes, laundry, and take showers. Alternatively, a leaking water heater may be an even larger problem, and may indicate that the water heater needs to be replaced before a major breakdown causes it to flood your home. Whether your water heater needs a checkup or needs to be entirely replaced, Allbritten is your source for professional advice and service.
Water line leaks
When pipes in your home are leaking, don’t just leave it out-of-sight, out-of-mind. Leaking pipes can not only be a major waste of water, but they could lead to the growth of mold and mildew in hard-to-reach places. Instead, give Allbritten a call, so that we can address the issue right away.
Single clogged drain
A single clogged drain may not seem like that big of a deal. But, if that drain is the one in your home’s only shower, it could be a major inconvenience for you. Alternatively, clogs in the kitchen sink also impact your ability to cook and clean at home. The Allbritten team comes equipped with special equipment for cleaning drains, including electric snake tools and other professional gear. When you have a clogged drain in the kitchen, the obstruction may be grease buildup deep in the pipe. Before you subject your pipes to an assortment of dangerous chemicals you picked up at the grocery store, let the Allbritten team attempt to remove the obstruction without the use of acids that could harm pipes.
Multiple clogged drains
In contrast, if all the drains in your home are clogging at once, it may be a sign of a very serious problem: a sewer backup. A sewer backup occurs when a major blockage prevents all water and waste from leaving your home and entering the sewer. This is a major problem and—if this is happening—you should immediately stop using all water in your house and call Allbritten for emergency service. A sewer backup can eventually lead to raw sewage coming back up through the pipes of your home and spilling out drains in reverse. This could lead to a messy flooding of your home that may cause permanent, expensive damage.
