Emergency Plumber | Plumbing Arlington
There are numerous homeowners’ who can provide their own basic plumbing repairs. However, there are times when even homeowner’s with advanced plumbing knowledge needs the services of a licensed plumber. Professional plumbers are able to provide services the homeowner can’t. Examples of these are leak detection of leaks the homeowner is unable to locate, a thorough drain cleaning and repair of damaged sewer lines without digging the lawn up to name a few. It is always a good idea to have an emergency plumber in mind when you have acute emergencies with your plumbing in Arlington.
Homeowner’s often ask when they should call a plumber for emergencies. A faucet that is dripping is not an acute plumbing emergency, unless it becomes a heavy leak. Technically any water leak can be temporarily stopped by shutting the water off at the meter.
The problem this causes is that there will be no water entering your home, and while some homeowners are comfortable with waiting to call until the next day, you will have no means of even flushing the toilet unless you have water sitting around in containers for that purpose. It is an individual’s choice, our plumbers provide plumbing service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for your convenience.

A sewer line leak on the other hand, is an acute emergency when it is overflowing into your home, or spilling into or onto the ground to contaminate the water table. The risk of disease from raw sewage is high, and repair is needed immediately. A sewer leak therefore, is grounds to call a plumber for emergency repair of your plumbing in Arlington.
Water gushing up in your yard indicates a broken water line, and will rapidly run your water bill up while wasting water. Water pouring inside your home is even more urgent as damage to your home can be catastrophic and costly. If this occurs, shut off the water supply and call a licensed professional plumber for the repair of your plumbing in Arlington.
Plumbing installations and repair may involve permits. Recent implementation of federal legislation now requires any plumbing installation or replacement to install a backflow preventer on homes whose water supplier hasn’t already installed one at each meter. State and local enforcement will determine whether or not this will be required for your home yet as it will take time for it to be implemented at the state or local level. Obtaining permits can be a time consuming task, and if it is going to be a DIY job, you may even have to take a plumbing test and pass it in order to obtain the necessary permits. Unplanned plumbing problems seldom leave you with the time to wait. Hiring a licensed professional plumber will save you all this time and frustration.
