COMMON PLUMBING EMERGENCIES

GAS LEAKS

Gas leaks are serious business and can be extremely dangerous if not attended to ASAP! They can cost you hundreds on your gas bill and pose a health risk to your home if the leak is inside. If you smell gas, you may have a leak and it's time to call a plumber.

BURST PIPE

Pipes can burst when you least expect it. If they do burst they can cause flooding and damage to your home.

WATER LEAK

Water leaks not only waste water and run up your water bills, they can also damage the finishes, fixtures and even the structural integrity of your home. If you notice a leak, or signs you may have a leak (rising damp, mould, water damage etc.) contact your plumber to prevent the damage from getting worse. If the water leak is related to one fixture like a toilet or tap - you can often turn off the water supply to this fixture only using the mini tap whilst still allowing water access to the rest of your home.

BLOCKED DRAIN

Blocked drains can be a huge inconvenience. They often occur completely out of the blue and can cause extensive damage to your home if not repaired correctly. Blockages often inhibit the use of sinks, drains and toilets, so it's best to get them sorted ASAP. Multiple blocked drains within a short period of time can hint at larger drainage problems in or around your property.

NO HOT WATER

Having no hot water can be a real inconvenience, especially in the cooler months. If you've noticed a change in your home's hot water, consider contacting your plumber before it gets worse to prevent an emergency call out in time.

WHAT TO DO IN A PLUMBING EMERGENCY 

Safety is always the first thing to consider in a plumbing emergency. If a water related emergency, turning off the water can prevent damaging flooding in your home. For gas emergencies, knowing how to turn the gas off can prevent fires and keep your family safe.  

TURN THE GAS OFF

Only if safe, ensure all of the gas appliances in your home are turned off or disconnected. It's then a good idea to turn the gas off at the meter. This is often quite simple and can be done in a matter of seconds. Standing in front of your gas meter you should see a yellow handle. When the gas is on, the handle will run parallel to the pipe it attaches to. To turn the gas off, turn the yellow handle so it sits perpendicular or at a 90degree angle to the pipe it attaches to.

TURN THE WATER OFF

Turning off the water will save water, limit the potential flood damage to your home and buy some time until the plumber arrives. Water meters are most often located outside the home. There are two common types: if yours looks like a normal garden tap turn the tap clockwise to turn the water off. If yours looks more like a lever - to turn the water off, turn the lever so it sits at a 90 degree angle to the pipe it's connected to. When the lever runs parallel with the pipe the water is on.

CONTACT A PLUMBER

Contact your local plumber ASAP! The sooner you call a plumber, the sooner your home's drainage/hot water/plumbing/gas supply etc. will be working as normal.
