Within the industry, emergency plumbing problems are some of the most common calls plumbers get. At All Hours Plumbing, our emergency technicians are some of the most popular services requested.

Certain emergency plumbing issues just can’t be avoided, and we’re here help get you through them. One thing you do have a bit of control over, though? How quickly these issues are spotted and addressed, which can go an incredibly long way toward reducing your costs and time considerations for repairs. Here are some telltale signs that you might soon require emergency plumbing services.

Water Flooding

If you’re finding water pooled or leaking in areas where it shouldn’t be, this is almost always a sign of an upcoming issue. Remove any items that may be in contact with the water, especially if they’re electric or battery-powered. Note the areas where flooding is taking place, and the amounts – and if you can locate the source, even better. Don’t wait here, and call our plumbers right away to get your issue solved before it becomes more serious.

Toilet Flushing Issues

Toilet drains can clog even if you’re using them correctly, and an inability to flush the toilet is the first sign. If your clog won’t respond to basic plunger use and is backing up, you may need an emergency plumber to help correct the issue plus give you tips to avoid further clogs.

Sewer Backup

If you notice water or waste leaking into your home or your back yard near pipes in the ground, this could be a sign of a large sewer backup issue. If left unchecked, these kinds of issues can be some of the most costly and time-consuming out there, so be diligent if you notice even the smallest signs.


Many plumbing issues can’t be seen directly, but another sense can assist you. If you notice odors coming from common water areas in the home, such as sinks or other drains, this could be an early sign of a clog or another issue. Our plumbers will help you identify your issue for an affordable rate, and won’t charge you any further until we’ve identified your exact issue and how to fix it.
