The Dos and Don’ts of Plumbing Emergencies

A plumbing emergency can happen at any time. Knowing what to do in advance helps you avoid panic and reduces the amount of damage to your home. At A-1 Total Service Plumbing, our full-service plumbers can handle any plumbing emergency and administer the necessary underground sewer line repair and other services to restore your pipes.

Here are some essential things to remember during an emergency plumbing situation:

Do: Turn off the Water Supply

The first thing you should do is shut off the water supply for safety reasons. This will prevent further water damage in your home while waiting for pipe or sewer relining.

Do: Call for Emergency Repairs

Call for emergency repairs as quickly as possible. The sooner our crew arrives and diagnoses the issue, the quicker we can resolve it with cast iron pipe relining or other restoration or replacement services.

Do: Contact Your Insurance Company

When you have a plumbing emergency, such as a burst pipe, call your insurance company after you contact us. Some companies offer partial or even full reimbursement for pipe relining in East Los Angeles, CA.

Don’t: Attempt DIY Repairs

It’s natural to want to save money on repairs. And many people think that a pipe root intrusion repair or other services will cost too much. However, most DIY attempts often result in worse damage to the plumbing and structural damage to the home. You could even injure yourself if you don’t have the right tools and experience.

Don’t: Remain in an Unsafe Environment

Don’t stay in the area if you smell a gas leak or raw sewage has backed into your home. Evacuate all people and pets immediately. Our crew will promptly evaluate the pipe for compatibility with CIPP or other repair methods.

When faced with a plumbing emergency and needing efficient pipe repair on a tight timeline, turn to our professional team at A-1 Total Service Plumbing. We’ll quickly restore normalcy to your home. Contact us today to learn more.
