When Is a Plumbing Problem Considered an “Emergency?”

Generally speaking, any plumbing problem that disrupts the ordinary, everyday use of your plumbing system could be considered an emergency. Additionally, some seemingly minor issues could indicate a serious problem. You will need fast repairs to prevent these issues from causing serious damage to your plumbing system, your home, and your property.

Some examples of plumbing problems that usually call for emergency service include:

  • Toilets that won’t flush
  • Overflowing toilets
  • Sinks, tubs, and showers that won’t drain
  • Burst pipes
  • Water heater failure
  • Lack of hot water
  • Most water leaks
  • Damaged pipes or sewer lines
  • Sewer line clogs and backups
  • Very low or no water pressure
  • Gas leaks
  • Stubborn clogs

If you are experiencing any of these or another type of plumbing emergency, do not wait to contact a reputable plumber. At Robison, we have earned the trust of our community by providing top-quality services, quickly and at a fair price, since 1921. Our Westchester and Putnam County emergency plumbers are prepared to assist you right now with your urgent plumbing needs.

What to Do If You Have a Plumbing Emergency

If you have a plumbing emergency, the first thing you should know is that it is always in your best interests to contact a professional plumber. This is especially true if there is leaking or overflowing water, as excess water can quickly lead to serious and even permanent damage. That being said, there are certain things you can do while waiting for a plumber to arrive that can help prevent further damage and ensure that your plumbing problems are addressed in the correct and safest order. 

If possible, try to take the following steps during a plumbing emergency: 

  • If necessary, remove yourself and others from the area. If you suspect a gas leak, or if there is a serious water leak that threatens your imminent safety, get to a safe place right away.  
  • Call an emergency plumber right away. The sooner you call a plumbing professional and explain the situation, the sooner they can take the necessary steps to address and rectify the problem. 
  • If it is safe to do so, turn off the water to the system or the whole home. For example, you can turn the valve behind an overflowing toilet off to stop the water from running. 
  • Open spigots and drains to release any water that is still in the pipes after you have shut off the main water source. This helps move water away from your home to prevent further damage.
  • If you are dealing with a clogged toilet or sink, try using a plunger to open the drain. However, you should avoid using any chemical cleaners or de-clogging agents, as these can cause damage.
  • Check your water heater and, if necessary, turn it off. If you have a gas water heater, make sure the gas is turned off first before turning off the water heater. 

Remember, during a plumbing emergency, your safety comes first. If you do not feel comfortable turning off the water main or checking your water heater, simply call our plumbing team at Robison and wait for technicians to arrive. We respond quickly to all calls, especially emergency service requests. You can count on us to arrive right away and get to work taking care of your plumbing emergency.

Emergency Plumbing FAQ

How quickly can a plumber respond to an emergency call?

The response time for an emergency call can vary depending on location, availability, and what tools will be needed to start the job. However, we keep stocked vehicles and full teams of professionals, which allows us to often respond to emergencies within the hour. We will always give you an accurate estimation of when we can be there to help. Remember: we have 24/7 emergency plumbing services in Westchester and Putnam Counties.

How can I prevent a plumbing emergency from occurring in the first place?

You can help prevent a plumbing emergency from occurring in the first place by regularly inspecting your plumbing system for signs of leaks, corrosion, or other damage. You should avoid pouring grease, oil, or other substances down your drains that can cause clogs. Only flush toilet paper and human waste down the toilet, and avoid flushing anything else such as wipes or feminine hygiene products. Also, arrange for your water heater to be inspected annually by a licensed plumber to ensure that it functions properly.

Are there any temporary fixes or solutions I can implement before a plumber arrives?

If you have a leak, turn off the water supply to the affected area by shutting off the main valve or isolating the specific valve leading to the fixture. If you have a burst pipe, try to wrap it with duct tape if it is safe to do so. Use towels or buckets to contain any standing water and prevent it from spreading. It's important to keep in mind that these are temporary solutions and should only be used as a last resort until a professional plumber can properly diagnose and fix the issue. It's always best to hire a licensed plumber for any plumbing emergencies to ensure that the problem is properly resolved and doesn't cause further damage to your home.

Can I attempt to fix a plumbing emergency myself, or should I wait for a plumber?

It's generally not recommended to attempt to fix a plumbing emergency yourself, as it can be dangerous and potentially cause further damage to your home. Plumbing emergencies often require specialized tools, expertise, and experience to properly diagnose and repair the issue. Additionally, attempting to fix the problem yourself can also void any warranties or insurance coverage you may have.
