When To Call For Emergency Plumbing Repair
Knowing when to call a plumber for help can mean the difference between hundreds and thousands of dollars in damage. Not every plumbing problem deserves a call to a 24 hour plumber, but here are the most common situations that do.
- Ruptured Pipes The one plumbing problem that has the potential for significant property damage is ruptured pipes. Depending on the size of the leak, a burst pipe can leak hundreds of gallons of water into the house, damaging furniture, walls, floors, and personal items. Even if you have a tiny pipe leak, it’s best to err on the side of caution and call a professional immediately.
- Leaking Toilet Whether the toilet is clogged and overflowing or is cracked and leaking, it’s a problem you don’t want to put off because the water can ruin your floors and bring on mold and mildew.
- Water Heater Failure There are many symptoms of water heater failure, including cloudy or rusty water, dripping water tanks, inconsistent water temperature, or unusual noises like popping or banging. If your water heater exhibits any of these issues or fails to provide hot water, call a plumbing contractor for help immediately.
- Sump Pump Failure If your sump pump fails during heavy rainfall, you’re at risk of a flooded basement. Call for help if you notice that the pump isn’t activating or if the pump fails to kick on as needed.
- No Water Pressure Lack of water pressure could result from a water main break, or it could be something on your end like a clogged pipe. A significant blockage can result in dangerous situations such as increased pipe pressure and bursts. If you suddenly lose water pressure, call a professional plumber as soon as possible.
You can rely on Quahog Plumbing to help you out of any plumbing pickle no matter the time with our 24/7 emergency service.
Call Us For Clogged Drain Repair
We get it. You’d rather fix clogged drains yourself instead of calling a professional plumber because it’s cheaper and quicker.
However, you may not know that fixing clogged drains yourself can often make the problem worse and cost you more to repair the damage.
For example, if you rely heavily on drain cleaners, you should know that they use harsh chemicals known to damage some pipes, leading to ruptures and leaks. Also, you have to be careful using plungers too. Sometimes people use too much pressure, which can also cause damage to your plumbing system.
Lastly, most drain cleaners don’t remove the clog; they push it deeper into the system, and you end up with problems again.
Hiring a professional ensures that your drains are cleaned thoroughly and safely because pros have access to tools and techniques that are not available to the average homeowner. Also, pros have the training and expertise to effect precise repairs instead of guessing.
For the safety of your valuable plumbing system, call Quahog Plumbing the next time you have a clog, and let us clean your drains to make them like new again.

Why Water Heater Maintenance Is Crucial
Your water heater is a critical component in your home’s plumbing system. You rely on it every day to provide you with on-demand hot water. Because this system works hard year after year and has a finite lifespan, it’s wise to invest some time into maintaining it, so it runs efficiently and lasts as long as possible.
If you’ve ignored your water heater, here are a few reasons to consider setting a regular maintenance schedule.
- Maintenance Increases Efficiency As your water heater ages, calcium builds up in the tank, making it less efficient. When minerals build up and settle at the bottom of the tank, it makes it more difficult for your water heater to produce hot water, which means increased wear and tear on the system and a decreased lifespan.
- Maintenance Saves You Money Flushing the sediment out of the tank at least once a year keeps your system running efficiently, which saves you money on your utility bills. Also, a clean water tank means it heats water quicker.
- Maintenance Helps Avoid Major Problems Regular maintenance helps you avoid surprises like cold showers or coming home to find that the water tank has rusted through and leaked all over the floor.
