Help! Emergency Plumbing Needed

When your plumbing is clogged and not working properly, you need help now (if not sooner!) What should you do to get the problem taken care of in the quickest way possible? Most people rely on emergency plumbing services to get the job done for them in the shortest time and at the most reasonable cost. Most areas have services that offer help on the same day that it’s requested. Hiring a professional plumber will provide you with excellent repair services. Don’t try to fix the problem yourself when you have expert help right at your fingertips!

The first thing to do is to find a reputable and qualified plumber. Go online and/or call a plumber in your area, let him know what the problem is and ask him to come out and give you an estimate on what the work is going to cost you. Most states allow you a grace period to cancel a contract that you have signed with your plumber. So, if the services he provides are not satisfactory, you might be able to obtain a full refund if the plumber’s work is done during this grace period.

Ask yourself if you truly have an emergency plumbing situation. Your plumber may try to convince you that the work needs to be done immediately and want to charge you an additional fee for his “emergency” work. If your plumbing is still usable, then it’s possible that the repair work could be done later. If Seattle Plumbing so, then you have some time to get additional quotes from other plumbers and compare their fees. Evaluate just how bad your plumbing problem is and decide if delaying repair will cause further damage to adjoining pipes and so on. It is also wise to consider the time it’s going to take you to have other plumbers come out and give you their quotes. If your time is valuable, it may be to your benefit to go with the quote from your initial plumber.

Reliable plumbers will take the time to give you an honest estimate and will be upfront regarding their costs now and what they will be if the services are performed later. Remember that you likely will have to pay another service fee if your plumber returns again to fix the problem. Also, your problem might worsen over time and this could add additional costs to future repairs.

The bottom line is: You and your plumber need to decide if you truly have an emergency plumbing problem. If the problem is serious and you really can’t delay getting it fixed, then by all means have the work done as quickly as possible. It will probably be cheaper in the long run to delay repair on a plumbing problem that is “livable” for the time being. You will need to weigh your options and discuss them with your plumber after he has evaluated your unique situation.
