We’ve covered everything you need to know to decide how quickly you need help with your plumbing problem. Read on to find out more:
How do I know if I have an emergency plumbing issue?

- Are you left without a toilet or way to wash yourself?
What counts as an emergency plumbing problem?
A burst water pipe
A burst water pipe can deal some severe damage, leading to costly repair bills and replacements of walls, ceilings and floors in some cases. If you have a burst water pipe or you’ve come home to a flood, the best thing you can do is get on the phone and get a plumber out to you as soon as possible.
All of your drains are blocked
A blockage across all your drains can indicate a problem further down the sewage line, which can lead to your toilet overflowing and all kinds of other backflow issues. If you find multiple drains blocked in your home, call an emergency plumber to resolve the problem quickly.
