Prevent blocked drains

Blocked drains are some of the most common bathroom plumbing emergencies that can be easily avoided. One of the best ways to prevent this problem is to buy a hair catcher for the shower. At least once a month, pour hot water down the drain in order to prevent the build-up of oil and debris and ensure optimal flow. Tell everyone in the house, especially young kids, to avoid throwing and flushing things into the toilet or down the drain.

Get a plunger

A plunger can come in handy for blocked drains and toilets, and you should have at least two ready—one for the toilet and another for the drain.

Inspection and removal of blockages

Prevention is key

As the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. Some bathroom plumbing emergencies can be easily prevented through routine inspection and maintenance. With trained eyes looking at your home’s plumbing system, potential problems can be detected and immediately addressed before they turn into real emergencies.

But what should you do if a bathroom plumbing emergency arises?

Your best recourse is to call in professional plumbers who can solve the problem at hand the first time.

While waiting for the plumbers to arrive, make sure to inform everyone that the bathroom cannot be used due to the plumbing emergency.

If you can find the source of the leak, the plumbers will have one task off their to-do list and will be able to remedy the problem sooner.

Next, find the water mains tap and shut it off to contain the water. After that, clear out the bathroom to give the plumber ample space to work on the problem. Remove toiletries and other supplies stored inside.

If you have attempted, but failed, to work on the problem, save the parts you used and removed and show these to the plumber once he arrives.

This was not an urgent repair, but made the effort to come as early as feasible. Very professional and explained clearly what was the issue (valve mixing hot and cold water that was due for a change due to old age) and why this occurred. Definitely will be on my good list.
Chris Bramley
Great guys to deal with. Would highly recommend. Used for drain unblocking.
The issue was explained clearly to me and how to prevent it from happening again.
Got good vibes from the beginning.
