How to choose the right emergency plumber

We've all been there. You suddenly notice the water stain that's spreading on the ceiling. Or your water pressure is suddenly minimal when you're trying to take a shower. Or, even worse, your toilet is hopelessly clogged.

These are all plumbing problems, ranging from the mildly annoying to the very serious. How do you know whether it's time to call an emergency plumber, and how do you choose the right emergency plumber? First, assess the problem. A flooded basement isn't on the same worry scale as a running toilet. 

Factors to consider

The more complex and serious the problem, the more experience and reliability your plumber should have.

  • Experience: How much experience does the plumber have? Have they been in business a long time? Do they have good reviews on their website? Do they come highly recommended? Have they dealt with emergency plumbing problems before? 
  • Availability: If you are dealing with an emergency, you need someone reliable who's available 24/7, not just someone who you'll have to wait on for a few days. Some plumbing problems can quickly turn into major and costly problems. Is your emergency plumber available around the clock?
  • Licensing: Some plumbing problems, like clogged toilets and drains, are minor and can be handled by most plumbers with some basic knowledge. But if it's an emergency that can quickly escalate you should bring in a professional who has the know-how, the certification, the insurance, and the tools to take care of the job. 
  • Be pro-active: Don't wait until you have a plumbing emergency to find an emergency plumber! Find one before and keep their number handy. You'll be happy you did.
