Plumbing emergencies are sure to occur at the worst possible time, and that’s why it’s essential to have reliable Indiana plumbers like the team at Jake’s Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing at your disposal. We offer 24/7 emergency services and will dispatch a reliable and knowledgeable plumber to your home to resolve the issue you’re experiencing. Some of the most common plumbing issues people experience are:
- Clogged drains and sinks
- Leaky pipes
- Frozen pipes
- Running toilet
- Broken, malfunctioning, or dripping faucets
- Low water pressure
- Broken sewer lines
- Septic tank leaks
Sometimes issues are minor enough for the homeowner to tackle with a DIY project, but it can be difficult to discern the severity of the issue for the untrained eye, and therefore plumbing issues should be left to the professionals.
To ensure more damage isn’t done while you are waiting for a plumber to arrive, consider taking these steps:
Leaky pipes – Turn off the main shutoff valve and turn off the water heater to prevent any further leaks or the water heater from overheating.
– Prevent frozen pipes by draining water from outdoor faucets and pipes during cold weather.
Clogs – If you can see the obstruction and can easily clear it, go ahead, but otherwise wait for the plumber to arrive. By trying to clear the pipe or snake if yourself, you could cause additional damage.
Overflowing toilet – Inside the tank, push the tank stopper down into its valve seat and hold until the tank fills and stops. After this, turn off the shutoff valve for either the toilet or the main water valve. If you can’t unclog the toilet with a plunger, wait for the plumber.
Running faucet – When you can’t get a faucet to turn off, turn off the water at the shutoff valve under the sink or at the main water shutoff valve. If the water is hot, turn off the hot water heater. A plumber will have to make any necessary repairs.
