When plumbing problems arise, most people are unsure if those issues constitute a legitimate plumbing emergency or if they can be tended to in due time.

In other words, there is considerable confusion as to what, exactly, constitutes a plumbing emergency. Below, our plumbing team explains problems that require emergency plumbing in Pompano Beach.
Reason #1: A Broken Pipe
If one of your plumbing system pipes breaks, it is a legitimate plumbing emergency. After all, water will still move through the broken pipe, saturating your living space.

Reason #3: There is no Water
You paid good money for your home so you should be provided with water in an on-demand manner. If you turn on the faucet and the water does not flow out, you need emergency plumbing in Pompano Beach. The bottom line is a home without running water puts your safety in jeopardy. Similar to a sewer that is backed up, the lack of access to running water is a safety concern as you will not be able to use the restroom. Furthermore, you will not be able to get water from the tap for hydration. Nor will you be able to cook, clean, etc.
Reason #4: A Malfunctioning Hot Water Heater
If your hot water heater is not functioning, it will prove quite problematic, especially in the winter months. The failure to adequately maintain and/or repair your water heater will cause major problems. Can you imagine attempting to get ready for work or your kids trying to get ready for school without hot water? It would be a disaster. Opt for emergency plumbing in Pompano Beach and we will analyze your malfunctioning hot water heater to identify the true cause of the problem and perform the necessary repair.
Reason #5: A Soaking Wet Yard
If you find wet spots along your yard, do not shrug it off as a result of rain, excessive moisture/humidity or wayward water from a hose. Such water spots are a sign the main water supply is leaking onto the lawn. Furthermore, if you notice the wet areas have an unsavory odor, it is a sign the sewer line has a leak. Do not attempt a DIY analysis and repair for a problem of this magnitude. This type of project requires emergency plumbing in Coral Springs. It is possible your water/sewer lines require significant repairs or even full replacement.
Reason #6: Flooding at Your Property

You need and deserve a hot shower to prepare for your workday and also to unwind after a long day. Cold showers often result from problems with the hot water heater.
