Emergency Plumbing – Docklands Locals’ Most Commonly Encountered ProblemsA thorough plumbing maintenance cannot prevent plumbing emergencies, especially if you live in an old house. What are the most common plumbing emergencies you should watch out for? When should you call in the experts in emergency plumbing (Docklands)?

Leaking taps

When taps leak water, the annoying sound produced should be the least of your concerns. Apart from wasting water, leaking taps can lead to larger problems, including the growth of mould and damage to property, especially those made with timber. In this instance, you will need to turn off the water mains and then call an emergency plumber.

Burst pipes

Arriving home and seeing that your property has been flooded is one of the worst experiences you can have as homeowner. Apart from the sight of water rapidly gushing out and flooding different parts of your home, matters can become complicated with the idea that as each second passes, your water bill, and the damage to your property, increase exponentially. The first thing you need to do is to turn off the water mains and locate the burst pipe.

Blocked drains and toilets

This is another perennial problem among property owners. Left unchecked, this can turn into a serious problem that leads to additional woes like health issues and further damage to property. If using the plunger does not solve the problem, call in the expert.

Gas leaks

Under no circumstances should you put off calling in an emergency plumber if you notice signs of a gas leak. At the first sign of a leak, turn off the main gas valve, get out of the house, and call in an expert.

Before the plumber arrives

While you are waiting for the emergency plumber to arrive, there are a few things that you can do. Apart from turning off the water mains to contain the leaks/flooding, you can clear the area of unnecessary clutter and remove as much water as you possibly can. Also, if there are children and/or pets in the household, you can put them in a room in your home to avoid disturbing the plumbers while they are at work.

Always great service and an excellent job. They get to the heart of difficult issues - recently fixed a very complex roof and guttering issue that our builder wasn't able to.  Friendly, reliable. 100% recommended.
