Is My Plumbing Issue an Emergency, or Can it Wait?

We know it can be hard to decide if you need to call a plumber immediately or if a repair can wait. For the most accurate answer, you can contact Plumbing by Jake anytime, 24/7. You’ll be connected with our live on-call team, who are happy to answer any of your questions. Often, we can talk you through your issue and help you decide if it’s safe to leave it until a more convenient time. 

In general, however, there are two significant factors you should consider when determining if you need an emergency plumbing repair:

1. Is There a Flooding Risk?

Anytime there’s a plumbing leak or backup, there’s a risk of water damage or flooding. The more severe that risk, the more likely you should treat your plumbing situation as an emergency. 

Small leaks, for example, can often be caught in buckets. They may be okay for a few days or more as long as they’re not damaging drywall or other elements of your home. However, water from a major plumbing problem can quickly ruin carpeting, walls, floors, or woodwork or cause lasting mildew and mold problems.

The bottom line? If your health or property is at risk, it’s an emergency!

2. Do You Really Want to “Live With It?” 

A non-flushing toilet may not seem like a big deal at first, but it’ll likely get old fast. Similarly, low water pressure or a lack of hot water is something you can live with for a couple of days if you want, but it should never become the “new normal.” 

We recommend you keep convenience in mind when deciding what to do. For example, if the issue causes a comfort concern, call an emergency plumber and have it repaired the same day. Or, if it can wait, you may choose to schedule your appointment for a later, more convenient time. 

What Are the Most Common Plumbing Emergencies?

When a plumbing emergency occurs in your home, you will need to act fast to minimize the damage and inconvenience. And what’s the best way to do that? Know what to look for and have a plan of action when an urgent situation arises. 

Be sure to call one of our expert 24-hour emergency plumbers in Golden Valley right away if you experience any of these common plumbing emergencies:

  • An overflowing toilet: Toilet paper and waste can clog your toilet, preventing water outflow. When you flush, water rushes over the bowl’s edge and onto your floor.
  • Burst pipes: When corrosion compromises your pipes, water can escape at a rate of up to 100 gallons every eight hours.
  • A clogged sink: Food may get lodged in your sink drain, resulting in standing water and slow draining.
  • Leaking pipes: Even slow leaks can cause severe damage over time, especially if they’re hidden and go unnoticed for any length of time.
  • A malfunctioning sump pump: If your home has a basement, you may have a sump pump installed to alleviate flooding. When your pump doesn’t turn on, water can build up and cause significant damage.
  • A broken-down water heater: When your water heater is in disrepair, it can leak or stop doing its job. You may need the help of an emergency plumber to get the hot water flowing again.
