Professional Emergency Plumbers
As your local emergency plumbers, we have much to offer our customers throughout the Essex region. Here are a few reasons you might need our services…
This is the most common reason for calling out an emergency plumber in Essex – if you notice flooding in your house. There can be several causes of flooding, including burst or cracked pipes, disconnected appliances, or even a backed-up drain. Whatever the reason, our emergency plumbers will be there as soon as possible to remedy it.
Blocked or Overflowing Toilet
Blocked or overflowing toilets definitely count as an emergency. Not only do they pose a danger of flooding the property, they can also be a significant health risk. You may try to unblock the toilet yourself with a plunger but, if this is unsuccessful, be sure to call Simply Plumbing as a matter of urgency.
No Water in Your Taps
No water in your taps may require an emergency plumber. The first thing to do is speak to your neighbours to see if they have been affected. If so, the problem is with your water supply and you need to speak to your supplier. If not, you will need an emergency plumber to investigate and resolve the situation.
Taps Won’t Turn Off
The flip-side of that situation is where the taps won’t turn <I>off</I>. This is of more immediate concern, as it could leave to flooding damage. Try turning off the water supply first, to minimise this risk. Once this is safely done, you should call out an emergency plumber to identify the problem with your taps and get things flowing again.
A burst water pipe can have serious repercussions for your property. Not only will it cause flooding, it can also damage your walls, short out your electricity supply, wreck furniture and carpets, and more. The moment you become aware of a burst water pipe, call Simply Plumbing and we will despatch an emergency plumber to your home immediately.
If the water coming out of your taps is brown or otherwise discoloured, it is best to call out an emergency plumber. The colour is often the result of disturbed sediment, minerals, or rust in the pipework and may not be safe to drink or wash up with. It may mean that a section of pipe needs replacing.
