When having a problem with the house, homeowners often go through a similar thought process as when they are sick. Is it an emergency? If so, who should I call? Can it wait until the office opens on the next business day? When it comes to plumbing, there are some things that just can’t wait, and a Park Slope emergency plumber suggests giving them a call if you experience any of these symptoms.
If you are experiencing a toilet that just won’t flush, and the plunger is not getting the job done, it is time to call the plumber. Even if you have another usable commode in your home, it could be a sign of a bigger problem, and you want to get it checked out. We can let you know if this is a small clog or a symptom of a larger issue with your sewer line.
We hear more of this during the winter when pipes freeze, but it can happen any time of the year when older pipes or connections finally give way. If you suddenly have a flood of water on the floor, or notice wet walls or ceilings, turn off the main water supply and call a plumber.
There is possibly no more offending odor in the world, and when you experience it in your house, it is concerning. There are several possibilities, from a dried out water seal, to a problem with a vent pipe. In some cases, you might need a backflow valve installed to prevent actual sewer backup. A professional can quickly nail down the cause and get it fixed.
If you smell natural gas, you might have a leak, and that is an emergency. There is no such thing as a little leak because even the smallest gap can pose a threat to safety. If you smell gas, call right away.
Nobody likes to deal with emergency situations, but in some cases, calling right away can not only give you peace of mind, but it can prevent further, more expensive problems in the future. If you have a plumbing emergency in the Park Slope area, contact Aladdin Plumbing today.
