Some Of The Most Common Plumbing 911’s
The Overflowing Toilet
Woah! Your toilet is overflowing! This definitely could be considered a plumbing emergency. An overflowing toilet is not only inconvenient, but it also leads to severe water damage if it isn’t taken care of right away. If your toilet looks more like Niagra Falls than it does a toilet, then it is definitely time to pick up a phone and call an emergency plumber in the Lower Mainland. First things first, turn off the water!!! Not all overflowing toilets will require a plumber immediately, use common sense to judge.
The Clogged Sink
Sure, a minor sink clog is usually something that can be cleared out with a plunger or a hand-cranked drain snake. But, if these tools are unable to resolve the problem, it might be best to call in your local plumber. Trust us, you don’t want to wait if your drains aren’t draining properly! Blockages can happen at 50′ to even 100′ down the pipes, you don’t want to send money down the drain by having a pipe burst.
No Hot Water
A lack of hot water is definitely one of the worst things that can happen in your home! Not only is it super inconvenient, but it is also a detriment to your comfort! A loss of hot water can certainly be enough to ruin your day, so if this happens to you, be sure to contact an emergency plumber ASAP! We offer hot water tank installation services anywhere in the Fraser Valley or Lower Mainland.
A Blocked Sewer Line
A blocked main sewer line is definitely a cause for concern, as its primary responsibility is to remove wastewater from your home.

We Recommend To Always Call a Professional
We can bet that your first instinct is to scour the internet for quick-fixes and how-to guides when you’ve got an emergency situation on your hands. However, we highly recommend you stay away from DIY plumbing repairs, save time & money by calling a professional plumber instead. Most online fixes are temporary and are often ineffective. Plus, without the right tools, you could end up making the problem worse.
Calling our emergency plumbers will ensure that your problem will be repaired correctly the first time around, saving you both time and money; but more importantly, the peace of mind that your plumbing issue was fixed right!
