Emergency Plumbing FAQs

If you have a question, we have the answer. Take a look at some of our emergency plumbing FAQs to help you assess your plumbing situation.

What is considered a plumbing emergency?
Your house doesn’t need to be flooding to count as an emergency plumbing situation, (but if it is, contact us, and we’ll be there in a flash!) Here are some common situations that are considered plumbing emergencies:
  • An overflowing toilet
  • A clogged drain that cannot be cleared with a plunger or drain snake
  • A broken pipe under the sink or garbage disposal
  • A leak in the roof or ceiling
  • A sump pump that is not working properly
If you are unsure whether or not you need to call an emergency plumber, it is always best to err on the side of caution and contact us. We can assess the situation and determine the best course of action to get your home back to normal!
When should I call for an emergency plumber?
You should call for an emergency plumber when you experience:
  • Water leaks: Any water leak, regardless of size, is a potential hazard. If you see water leaking from a pipe, faucet, or fixture, turn off the water supply to the affected area and contact us immediately.
  • Toilet or drain backups: If bad odors are coming from your backed-up toilet or drain and it’s untreated, you could face more issues down the line. Try to unclog it yourself first. Try these three simple ingredients: baking soda, vinegar, and hot water. Mix them together, and hopefully, you say goodbye to clogged toilets and hello to smooth-flowing drains. If not, then it’s time to contact us.
  • Sewer backups: Sewer backups can be a major health hazard and can cause extensive damage to your home.
  • Gas leaks: Gas leaks are extremely dangerous and can lead to fires and explosions. If you smell gas, turn off the gas supply to your home and contact Apex Plumbing immediately.
  • No water: If you have no water coming out of your faucets or showerhead, it could be a sign of a serious plumbing problem. We’ll help you restore your water flow in no time!
  • Water heater failure: If your water heater breaks down, you’ll be stuck with some cold showers. Contact us to restore your water’s temperature and avoid worse issues like flooding.
How do you avoid a plumbing emergency?
The first rule is to be mindful of what you put down your drains and into your garbage disposal. Certain foods or products may have trouble breaking down and can cause backups, clogs, and other plumbing issues. Beyond that, you can avoid plumbing emergencies by taking the following preventive measures:
  • Perform Regular Maintenance
  • Monitor Water Pressure
  • Regularly Inspect Appliances
  • Regularly Clean Drains
What causes pipes to burst in a house?
Pipes can burst in a house for various reasons, but the most common reason a pipe will burst is clogs caused by hard water. With that said, some of the other reasons include:
  • Excessive Water Pressure: Excessive pressure can strain your water pipes, especially if the pressure is higher than what the pipes are designed to handle. This can weaken the pipe walls and lead to eventual bursts.
  • Corrosion: Over time, pipes can corrode due to chemical reactions with the water they carry. Corrosion weakens the pipe material, making it more susceptible to leaks and bursts.
  • Tree Roots: If you have trees on your property, their roots can potentially cause plumbing issues. Tree roots seeking water can penetrate and damage underground pipes, leading to leaks and bursts.
  • Improper Installation: Poorly installed pipes can result in weak joints or connections, making them more likely to fail and cause bursts.
  • Water Hammer: A water hammer occurs when fast-closing valves or sudden changes in water flow create a shockwave in the pipes. Over time, this can weaken the pipe material and contribute to bursts. You can identify a water hammer by the knocking noise it makes in your pipes.
  • Age: As pipes age, they naturally become more vulnerable to damage. The materials may degrade, making them prone to leaks and bursts.
  • Change in Temperatures: Every so often, the weather in Florida can reach cold temperatures. When water inside pipes freezes, it expands, putting immense pressure on the pipe walls. This pressure can lead to cracks and, ultimately, bursts.
What Should You Do First When the Pipes In Your House Burst?
The first thing you should do when the pipes in your house have burst is turn off the main water supply. This will stop the flow of water and prevent further damage. Typically, you can find it at the meter or where the main water line enters your home. In case of overflow or leaking pipes, the shut-off valve behind the toilet or underneath the sink in the cabinet for sinks is crucial. Once the water supply is off, you should assess the damage and determine if you can fix the leak yourself or if you need to call a plumber. Until one of our Apex plumbers arrives, take the following steps to minimize the damage:
  • Soak up any water with towels or a wet/dry vacuum
  • Move any furniture or other belongings away from the leak
  • Open windows and doors to ventilate the area
  • Place fans in the area to dry the air
