Why are burst pipes emergencies?

When a pipe bursts in your home, the line is going to leak and even gush water at an incredible rate. This gushing water can easily flood an area within very little time, causing massive water damage and eventual mould growth.

Also, if you have a burst pipe, your water pump located in your basement or garage is going to be working overtime to keep up with water demand. This can burn out your pump’s motor, causing you to need a brand new pump. If you pay for your water locally, a burst pipe can make your water bill skyrocket into amounts that you’ve probably never seen before.

How can sump pumps prevent flooding emergencies?

If you’re dealing with a burst pipe or other flooding issue, a sump pump is the tool you’ll need to get rid of the flood quickly. The pump has a suctioning motor on it that is attached to a hose line. The hose line can be brought to a nearby tub, drain, or even outside of a window.

The sump pump then sucks up any water in the area and brings it through the hose to another source. Sump pumps can control a flood while it is happening and reduce the amount of water damage that you’ll be left with.

How can you prevent clogged toilet emergencies?

One of the most common household plumbing problems is a clogged toilet. In some cases, you can easily unclog the toilet yourself using a plunger, but heavier clogs will require the expert skills of our professional plumbers. While it’s easy to contact us to remedy the issue, it is always best to try to prevent clogged toilet emergencies before they actually happen.

One way to prevent issues with your toilet would be to avoid flushing items that shouldn’t be. Many people scoop and put their cat litter into the toilet, but most cat litter is hard and clumps badly within the drainage line. Think of wet cat litter like cement, and just imagine this being in your drainage underneath the home.

You will also want to avoid putting plastic and rubber products down the drain. These items should be wrapped up in toilet tissue and put into a trashcan nearby. Also, make sure that you use a good quality toilet paper in the toilet at all times. Never flush wipes, heavy paper towels, and napkins down the toilet because these items could cause a clog.
