When You Need An Emergency Plumber in Manly

There will come a time in your household when you will need to call on a plumber for an emergency that you cannot fix yourself. Having clean water in and outside your home is essential for a number of everyday tasks, including going to the toilet, showering, washing dishes, cooking, and drinking. When a plumbing emergency arises, it can may cause damage very quickly, and you will need to have on hand the contact details of a reliable, efficient Manly emergency plumber that can get to your house extremely quickly before the damage gets out of hand and costs mount quickly. Below are the most common reason why you would need an emergency plumber to come to your home.

Blocked Drains

Blocked drains can quickly escalate into a big problem. Once a drain is blocked, and water starts spilling out, it can do a lot of damage in and outside of your property, for example damaging walls and floors.  You should perform drain checks and maintenance once a year to make sure there are no blockages, especially problems with tree roots outside of the property. Checking that the drains are not located near electrical outlets should be a priority, as if water starts overflowing this can become very dangerous for your household. An emergency plumber should be called in the event of a blocked drain, as the longer you leave the more damage and cost can occur.

Water Leaks

If you have a water leak in your home, it can often have the potential to be a big problem, and cause some serious damage to your property. Worst case scenario is that it could cause a ceiling to cave in, if the problem is not taken care of. You will only spot a water leak, after it has already caused some damage, however you can minimise the damage if you get the problem looked at quickly. Only a plumber will be able to get access to the leak if it occurs within the walls of your home. 

You won’t be able to how bad the water leak is, until a plumber investigates and finds the source of the leak.  It can also be dangerous until they determine whether the leak has touched or reached any electrical points within walls. It is important you call a qualified emergency plumber to come and look at a leak, you need a professional that is licensed and insured as water and electricity is a safety hazard, and it is too risky to investigate yourself or perform DIY. 

Hot Water Tanks Bursts Open

If your hot water tank bursts, it will result in a huge loss of water and major damage to your property. If you don’t quickly call a plumber in to help, the damage will be even more severe, as the tank obviously holds a large body of water. The best thing you can try and do to try and mitigate the damage is turn the turns for the hot water tank to the off position. Then call an Manly emergency plumber immediately, and them to come quickly to prevent further damage and cost to your property.

Overflowing toilet

An overflowing toilet is one of the most common emergency plumbing problems we see amongst households. They are an annoying and smelly problem to have, and can cause damage to your floors and walls, and anything else that is on the ground level. It can leave a smell of sewerage throughout your home, which can be hard to get rid of.  The first thing you need to do when your toilet overflows is to turn off the water, and not continue to flush the toilet. Then call your local and reliable emergency plumber as soon as possible to come and solve the problem.
