Emergency plumbing services in San Diego

Did your plumbing unexpectedly break down? Do you suddenly realize that you can’t use the shower or toilet? Does an untimely leak quickly flood the bathroom? To solve any of these problems, you need to use the emergency plumbing service.


Common emergency plumbing problems

How do you know if you’re facing a problem that requires you to call a plumber urgently? Very simple – an emergency problem not only interferes with normal life and creates discomfort, but it also threatens the loss of property and promises costly repairs. A list of common problems that require immediate attention includes:

  • 🔷 Clogged toilet. This problem creates discomfort due to the inability to use the toilet. This is especially unpleasant if there is only one toilet in the house. In addition, there is a risk that the waste of the toilet may spill onto the floor.
  • 🔷 Burst pipes. In this case, there is a high risk of flooding the room, and in the future, there will be a large water bill.
  • 🔷 Sump pump failure. A pump failure can threaten basement flooding and costly repairs.
  • 🔷 Sewage backup. A broken sewer line means a flooded yard and a bad smell.

You can also urgently call a plumber if you don’t have hot water, your pipes leak, or your washing machine or dishwasher breaks down.

Emergency plumbing brief guide

Almco Plumbing responds to an emergency call during business hours only. If your problem happens at night, on weekends, or on holidays, we recommend that you take steps to temporarily resolve the problem. And then call a plumber as soon as possible. In order for you to deal with the emergency on your own, Almco Plumbing has prepared a small guide for you.

What to do if my pipes burst?

  1. Turn off the water;
  2. Call a plumber as soon as possible;
  3. Remove water from the flooded area;
  4. Drain any remaining water from the pipes.

If the pipe bursts due to frost, then it is recommended to turn on the heating and warm the room. Provide warm air circulation in the room.

What to do with leaking pipes?

  1. Turn off the water;
  2. Call a plumber as soon as possible;
  3. Remove the remaining water from the pipe and dry it;
  4. Purchase plumber’s putty;
  5. Use the plumber’s putty to patch up the hole in the pipe.

If you don’t have a plumber’s putty on hand, you can use a pipe repair clamp, spray, or rubber tape. Please note that all this is a temporary solution and delaying the call of a specialist can result in high costs.

What to do if my sewer backup is broken?

  1. Turn off the electricity in the flooded area. Do not touch the water unless you have turned off the electricity;
  2. Turn off the water;
  3. If you cannot turn off the water – then do not use the toilet, shower, sink, and other plumbing;
  4. If you need to walk on water – put on a protective suit first;
  5. Keep children and elderly relatives away from wastewater;
  6. Call a plumber as soon as possible.

What to do if my drains are clogged?

  1. Do not use plumbing where there are problems with the passage of water;
  2. Call a plumber as soon as possible;
  3. To solve the problem yourself, you can use baking soda with vinegar. However, this will damage the pipes and may not clear the blockage.

A clogged sink or shower with no water flow is not necessarily a problem that needs urgent attention. Especially if your house has several sinks. You can try to clean the pipes yourself – we wrote a detailed article about 5 ways to fix clogged drains.
