Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

Emergency Plumber FAQ

Help, I’ve got a plumbing emergency!

What do you do when a plumbing emergency arises? The very first thing is to make sure it is safe, and not getting even worse. Electricity and water do not play well together safely, so if you need to, turn the power off at the breaker box.

If there is still water leaking, turn off the tap to the appliance or fixture if you can, or go straight to the main shutoff valve for your home. If you are unable to find a main valve to turn off, then you may want to try turning on all the cold water taps inside and outside your residence to depressurise the system and reduce the leak.

Now give our on call plumbers a ring, any hour day or night. We’ll be at your home as soon as we can to save the day.

While you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, clear away any significant things close to the leak, and clean up any water or place a container to catch the drips. If you’ve turned the mains water off, switch off the hot water heating as well.

Help, I don’t know where the main water shutoff valve is!

You may have been shown it as the stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This valve is generally located on the property perimeter near the road, usually under a blue or black plastic cover.

Remember, many appliances and fixtures have their own isolating taps as well.

Emergency Plumber Standing By

Blocked Drains Issues

Our Scarborough urgent plumbers realise that a blocked pipe can be a serious health risk that needs attending to as soon as possible. That is why we offer our emergency plumbing service.

A clogged drain is a serious predicament, especially if it involves sewage. If you’re lucky, you can fix it by yourself using a plunger. But if you can’t, you need assistance rapidly. Let’s face it, a blocked or overflowing toilet or sewer is something none of us ever wish to see, or smell!

Whether it is the bathroom sink that will not drain, or a clog in the shower, or worse yet, sewage flowing down the hall or across your garden, our on call Scarborough plumbers will quickly locate the problem and unclog it so that life can get back to normal.

With our well equipped vans, we have all we require available to repair almost all drain blockages right then and there. If there is an underlying problem that needs other equipment or parts, we can usually put an interim solution in place to keep you going until the final repairs are concluded.

I have a plunger, can I unblock it myself?

We recommend trying to clear minor clogs using a plunger if you have one. However, if you do not have a plunger, or it does not clear the clog, we do not recommend chemicals as they seldom work well, and can cause more damage to your drains.

Do not let a obstructed pipe get you down. Ring us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water Tank Not Working

We generally do not think about how frequently you count on easy fast hot water until it is not there anymore. Just finished in the garden and really need a shower? Time to finish off a sink-full of dishes? The last thing you need is to turn on the water and discover it’s cold.

When your hot water has fallen short, give our team a call. We will be there swiftly to figure out the issue and resolve it. From heating elements to faulty thermostats to leaking cylinders, our team can repair them and get your life back to normal.

Leaks in the hot water system can cost a vast amount, and may cause major damage to your house. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for about thiry percent of the usual home’s electricity bill, so a leak can cause significant harm to your wallet very rapidly.

When you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in the hot water system, call our Scarborough emergency plumbers straight away. We will get the hot water working again quickly. If you find a lot of water leaking, turn off the water at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If you need a new hot water cylinder, our team can help pick a suitable solution for your budget, needs and location. If your entire hot water system needs upgrading, we can organise to do those repairs in a timely manner as well.

Burst Pipes Resolved Fast

From the small fresh water pipes in your walls and roof, to the large sewage pipes in the ground, most of the pipes in your home are hidden away out of sight and out of mind. You never even think of them until there’s an issue.

Once there is an issue though, it’s the most imperative thought in your mind. A leak or burst pipe can be serious stuff, and you need it fixed immediately to prevent damage to your home, your contents and even your well-being.

As soon as you find a leak or burst pipe, get hold of our emergency plumbers immediately. We are waiting to help Scarborough residents right away. Whilst waiting for our plumber to get there, it could be useful to turn off the water to the property.

Why did the pipe burst?

There are many reasons why pipes and taps may burst. If you live in a very cold region, the pipes might have iced up and split. They might simply be aged and dilapidated. The pipes may not have been adequately sealed in the first place. Tree roots may invade subterranean seals.

Our urgent plumbers will identify and fix the burst pipes or leaks quickly and cleanly.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you have a problem tap? A tap that drips all night, leaks or perhaps is doing an impression of a fountain?

Over the years, we’ve learned that even a dripping tap can be a major aggravation. Something that might go unnoticed in the brouhaha of daily life without warning sounds like a jack hammer at 2am, ruining your shuteye.

Not only is the sound vexing, but a dripping or leaking tap can send your bills through the roof, especially if it is the hot tap. Do not waste money and potentially cause long term damage to your residence, call our team now.

Whether you need a whole replacement faucet, or simply a washer that needs replacing, our professional urgent plumbers will rapidly diagnose the cause and fix it. Our plumbers even carry a modest choice of taps and faucets on hand for you to pick from, or can put in a temporary one if required.

From large to small, our Scarborough emergency plumbers can do it all. Not just taps, we offer a wide range of emergency and non-urgent plumbing services.

Why is my faucet dripping?

Normally, a dripping tap is caused by a dilapidated or defective washer, seal or ceramic cartridge. Depending on the brand of faucet, we can often replace worn out parts on the spot for a very reasonable outlay.
