Signs That You Have a Plumbing Emergency

Some situations are quite clearly plumbing emergencies, such as having no water in the house, a sump pump failure, or when a toilet overflows. Others may be trickier to spot or to classify as an emergency, such as:

No Hot Water

Sometimes, no hot water simply means too many people tried to shower around the same time, and the water heater can’t keep up. If there is no explanation, however, this could be an emergency.

Broken or Leaky Pipes

There are times when you see water pouring out from where it shouldn’t, and when a busted pipe occurs, it can be much less obvious. Look out for these signs:

  • Unusual standing or dripping water
  • Lowered water pressure
  • Sewage odor
  • Water discoloration
  • Bulges in exposed pipes
  • Unexpectedly higher water bill
  • Pipes make bubbling or whistling sounds

Clogged Drains

Most of the time, you can clear a clog by pouring boiling water or baking soda and vinegar down the drain, or using a plunger, snake, or wire coat hanger to dislodge it. If these methods don’t work, however, you’ll need a plumber to clean the drain. And overflowing water is always an emergency situation.

Slab Leaks

Early detection is crucial for slab leaks. If they go undetected for too long, the water damage can cost thousands of dollars to repair. Signs you may have a slab leak include:

  • Decreased water pressure
  • Unusual spike in your water bill
  • Constantly running water heater
  • Areas of the floor feel hot
  • Smelling or seeing mold or mildew
  • Water accumulating where it shouldn’t

Backed-Up Sewer System

Not only are repairs related to a backed-up sewer system costly, but they also create health risks by making your home unsanitary. If you see any of the following signs throughout the house (rather than at a single clogged drain), call Roby Services, and stop using the water immediately.

  • Slow draining sinks, tubs, and toilets
  • Water or dampness around floor drains
  • Gurgling appliances that use water
  • Foul odors

If you’re facing a plumbing emergency, don’t hesitate to contact Roby Services now! Call (980) 308-0200 and let us take care of the problem.

What To Do While You Wait for Roby Services To Arrive

As we said before, if you think your sewer line is backed up, don’t use your water while waiting for help.

If you have an overflow or a burst pipe, you should first turn off the water to the house, then open a faucet to let off any remaining water pressure. If you don’t know how to turn off the water to your house, let us know so we can show you how for future reference.

Next, you should get out your shop vacuum if you have one, and/or towels, mops, buckets, and whatever else will help you clean up the water. The longer you let it sit, the more likely you’ll experience mold growth and water damage.

Why You Shouldn’t Wait for a Business-Hours Plumber To Open

Every homeowner in Charlotte, NC, should have the contact information for a trustworthy emergency plumber like Roby Services on hand. Plumbing emergencies only get worse the longer you wait, risking breakdowns in your plumbing appliances and causing water damage to your home and foundation.

In addition, excess dampness in Charlotte’s already-humid climate encourages the growth of unsightly and unhealthy mold and mildew, while the presence of wastewater in your home is extremely hazardous to your health.
