When To Call For Emergency Plumbing Services
Not all plumbing problems require emergency help, but there are some in which waiting means risking significant property damage that's costly to repair.
Fortunately, there are ways to gauge when to call for emergency services, and here are a few to watch for.
Have you ever flushed the toilet only to watch as the bowl slowly fills? No matter what caused the clog, when a toilet overflows, it can spill contaminated water all over your bathroom, leading to diseases and respiratory problems. If you've tried removing the clog without success, call an emergency plumber for help.
No Hot Water
Imagine running out of hot water midway through your morning shower or not getting any hot water at all. If you notice that the hot water isn't lasting as long as it used to, it could mean that your water heater is failing. To avoid total system shutdown, call a plumber for repairs as soon as you notice a problem.
Water Pressure Problems
Many homeowners shrug off low water pressure, assuming it's just how the house was built, but that's not the case. In most instances, mineral deposits building up in your pipes choke off water flow over time, leaving you with low water pressure.
Signs Of Water Leaks
The presence of water in the home is never good. Regardless of where the water leak occurs, it's a problem you must fix quickly to minimize the damage. Persistent water leaks can damage flooring and lead to foundation cracks.
When temperatures dip below freezing, it's not uncommon for homeowners to experience frozen pipes. When water freezes in your plumbing system, it causes pipes to expand, which can lead to ruptures and leaks once they thaw.

How To Know Your Water Heater Is Failing
Most people don't think about their water heaters until they wake up to a cold shower in the morning because the water heater gave out. Fortunately, most water heaters give off warning signs letting you know they're getting ready to bite the dust.
Here are the most common signs of impending water heater failure.
While water heaters are built to last for years, they eventually wear out. The average lifespan of a water heater is 12 years. You can maximize the life of your water heater with routine maintenance; however, if your system is reaching the upper end of its lifespan, plan on replacing it soon.
A leaking water heater is never good, but some leaks are better than others. For example, it's easy to repair if the leak comes from a loose fitting or defective valve. But, if the leak is coming from the tank, it usually means it has rusted and needs to be replaced.
No Hot Water
If you don't get any hot water or the water doesn't stay hot as long as before, it could mean a heating element has failed. Sometimes, you can replace the heating element, while you must replace the entire water heater in other cases. A plumbing professional can help you decide.
Cloudy or Rusty Water
Cloudy water typically means you have sediment buildup in the tank, while rust-colored water could mean the tank's lining is rusting through.
If you hear popping or rumbling noises coming from your water heater, again, it could be the sediment that's built up and hardened over time. Sometimes you can fix this by flushing the tank, while other times, replacement is the only option.
If you notice any of these symptoms, call Quahog Plumbing for an expert water heater inspection.
