What You Need To Do Before Calling an Emergency Plumber

Life is full of surprises and some of them aren’t what you want. For example, trouble with your plumbing. One thing is having to see to a faulty joint or leaky tap, but sometimes it can be much more serious than that. Sudden floods inside your house are enough to send you crazy and the first thing you will do is grab your phone for help. That’s what emergency plumbing is all about.

Fortunately, those in need of an emergency plumber in Lismore can call David Lewis Plumbing. We run a 24/7 emergency plumbing service. While you are waiting for the plumber to arrive you need to stay calm and just so you don’t feel useless, we have put together a list of what you need to do before calling an emergency plumber.

  • Emergency, to most people, means something that happens suddenly and outside of normal working hours. With plumbing problems, people tend to panic. Our advice is to stay calm and assess the problem before you make any moves.
  • One immediate action you can take is to turn off the water supply. For example, toilets usually have a key or tap to the tank which can be closed off. This is a recommended action to limit damage before a plumber arrives.
  • Look over the problem before you phone the plumber, because they will ask you questions and maybe they can give you instructions on how to contain the problem before they need to come out.
