At Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating, we understand that a plumbing emergency can come up when you least expect them. Clogged toilets, leaky water heaters and frozen pipes don’t wait for a convenient time to strike your home.
That’s why we’re available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you with your plumbing emergencies. However, there are some things you can do to decrease your chances of experiencing these annoying plumbing problems.
Know what to flush and what not to flush. Flushing wipes, napkins, paper towels, and other non-flushable items can cause blockage. A weak flush is an indication that a clog is forming. If you notice a slow flush, don’t wait. Use a plunger before the clog makes it impossible to flush!
Leaking water heater
A leaky water heater may seem like just a minor inconvenience, but it can quickly turn into a much larger problem. Excessive leaking wastes water and can cumulatively amount to hundreds of dollars added to your water bill. Having the professional technicians at Affordable Service install an automatic water shut off valve can help prevent a leak.
It’s cold outside. If exposed to the freezing temperatures outside, water inside the pipes will freeze and expand, potentially rupturing the piping. If pipes are located in an attic, crawl space or garage, they could be at risk of freezing. Running water through the pipe, just a trickle can help prevent pipes from freezing.
Our emergency plumbers are available any time day or night. When you contact us, you can rest easy, knowing that we’ll get it done right, and we’ll get it fixed quickly. While there is no ideal time for a plumbing emergency, Affordable Service can make it easier to deal with so you can get back to your routine!
