If your pipes freeze

Frozen pipes in the dead of winter can cause a lot of problems. Not only will you have no running water, but if it isn’t fixed swiftly, your pipes may crack or burst. If this problem is not caught early, it could lead to extensive flooding or leaks.
Frozen water pipes are prone to bursting and leaking, so if you think your pipes might be frozen, take quick action. If this happens, it’s always better to turn off your water and electricity at the main supply. If a pipe bursts in your home, it can create an extensive mess that could be costly to repair—the longer you wait, the worse it will get.
Emergency plumbers will be able to defrost any frozen pipes carefully and also insulate them to prevent future freezing.

If your pipes burst

Turn off your water and electricity at the mains and get in contact with an emergency plumber as quickly as possible.
The sooner you start clearing the flooded area, the less damage will be done. If water is left to build up, it can ruin your floors, walls and furniture. While you wait for your plumber to arrive, lay down dry towels where the water has seeped and replace them as they become damp.

In case of a slow water leak

You may want to contact an emergency plumber if you detect any of the following:

  • Watermarks on your flooring, walls, and skirting boards.
  • Puddles of water on your kitchen floor, in cabinets, or around the bathroom.
  • Water leaking in your bathroom or kitchen.
  • Strange smells coming from your cupboards or other areas of your home.
  • A drop in water pressure coming from your taps or shower.

Water pipes are behind walls and cupboards, running next to electrical wiring. So, if you see a leak, it’s best to turn off your water supply. The last thing you want is for the leak to worsen while you wait for a plumber.
Because small water leaks are hard to detect, you’ll almost always need a plumber with the experience and equipment to discover it promptly.

If your drains get blocked

Blocked drains can be a serious hassle, but there are ways to fix the problem. Sometimes trying household products will do the trick, but if it doesn’t then you’ll have to call in a professional.
Blockages may slowly build up over time, to the point where no amount of drain cleaner can fix it. Blocked drains are often the result of a small blockage that worsens over time. Off-the-shelf unblockers don’t always do the job thoroughly enough, and you can end up with an overflow later on that causes extensive damage.

In case of a blocked toilet

If the water in your toilet bowl is rising after each flush or if waste isn’t draining, you probably have a blockage. If this is what’s happening, you can unclog the drain with a plunger. If this fails, call an emergency plumber who will arrive promptly and know how to repair the problem since the blockage might be in the plumbing of the toilet or further down in the pipe.
