How To Detect Leaks That May Cause Emergency Plumbing.
Plumbing services that one may demand from an expert in a very short notice or during odd hours of the day or night, on holidays and weekends are called emergency plumbing services. Emergency plumbing services are very necessary and not cheap. Emergency plumbing problem may occur as a result of underestimating in scope of a problem hence the importance of regularly scheduled plumbing services and a back-up emergency plumbing service in case of an emergency. Increased utility bills and water wastage can result from emergency plumbing leaks and floods from a burst pipe, running toilets, and leaky faucets. Emergency plumbing leaks in sewages and septic tanks can also turn disastrous due to the health risks that it puts because of moulding and bacterial infiltration.
If the food colour added to the toilet tank is seen on the toilet bowl, it means that there is a leak and therefore one should seek plumbing services to fix it. Freezing of the pipes may cause them to open up which leads to leakages that can be controlled by shutting off the valve to close water supply to the open pipes. One should then call a plumbing company to fix the open pipes before opening the valves.
Some of the measures that one can take to prevent emergency plumbing include insulating the pipes that may be exposed to low temperatures to keep them from freezing which leads to splitting up, thawing freezing pipes gently with a blow dryer and cleaning out sediment accumulation in the water heater on a regularly to prevent clogs that restrict hot water supply to the relevant fixtures. Avoiding things like pouring boiling water down the toilet, throwing big objects, diapers, sanitary towels and toys in the toilet, thawing freezing pipes with a naked flame, planting shrubs and trees over sewer lines and pouring cooking fats, oils and grease down the kitchen’s drain will help to prevent the chances of an emergency plumbing in very many different ways.
The early signs that can help you detect a clogged drain are slow draining water, large puddles accumulating around the drain, water coming back out of a sink drain, toilet water bubbling when faucet is being used, gurgling noises from drain and foul odours from drain.
For drain cleaning, pour a drain cleaner into the drain and then wait for 10 minutes before flushing it with hot running water for several minutes and finally using a plastic drain snake to pull out any obstructions in the drain.
