When Do You Need Emergency Plumbing?

As much as we might like, we can’t always choose when and where a plumbing emergency might strike. Ideally, those leaky pipes and overflowing toilets will only strike during normal business hours. But life isn’t neat and tidy, and sometimes an emergency crops up in the middle of the night or over a weekend when most businesses are closed. Luckily, there’s a service in the Sandy Springs, GA area that can provide emergency plumbing calls 24 hours a day, seven a week. But when do you need to call for an emergency service and when can you save a little money by waiting for normal business hours? The answer depends on a few key questions:


In most cases, you should be able to halt the damage by shutting off the water, either to the affected outlet or to the whole house. Every family member should know how to shut off the water to the whole house, which should mitigate most problems. You may also be able to shut off the water only to the affected area, which can be a big factor in determining if you need emergency services. If the damage can be contained – the water stops leaking or the problem doesn’t get any worse – then you can consider your options further. Otherwise, you should call for emergency repairs.


The length of the wait and the overall inconvenience levels can play a big part in deciding if you need emergency services. If the affected area is limited to an outlet or two and/or if it’s just a question of a few hours’ wait, you might be better off scheduling a regular plumbing repair session. If it’s going to be longer and/or the problem seriously impede the household’s ability to function, you might want to call in an emergency repair session.
