It happens to all of us.  Something goes wrong and we have water in places we don’t want water.  We have an emergency plumbing situation.  The pipes have burst. The toilet has overflowed.  A hot water tank is sending floods of water all over your basement.  The sewer has backed up.

Our immediate reaction is to panic.  But the first thing you need to do is to get the water shut off.  Then you need to phone your emergency plumbing service.

Use a 24-hour emergency plumbing service

Why do plumbing emergencies never happen during working hours.  Make sure that you can get a hold of your emergency plumber 24 hours a day.  A good plumber will have an answering service that will pick up emergency calls at all hours.
