Water Problem At 3AM: Call A 24 Hour Plumber


Visitors: 190

When you get woke up at the early hour of 3AM, “There's no water!” this is the time many often first consider a plumber at all. It seems many problems show there heads at of all times: when you are asleep! Of course a 24 hour plumber doesn't come to mind immediately. Often what comes to mind is “What?” You may get further elaboration, such as the basement is flooding, or maybe it's just no hot water.

Regardless you probably leap to your feet and go investigate a little further. And then you need to assess the situation, and as of now, you may be thinking you need a 24 hour plumber.

What's the problem? Is it a water supply problem, a leak, or maybe the hot water heater is providing 30 or 40 gallons of cold water? What can you do at an hour like 3AM? The choices are limited as you can either fix it (if you know how) in an hour or two, or you can call a plumber, however not all plumbers are available. Many are home asleep not to be bothered. You may now need to consider a 24 hour plumber.

While known simple things may be able to wait till daytime, how often do we get that lucky? It's very possible you now need to call a 24 hour plumber. You will want to consider a few things, and if you aren't really in this situation right now, you might want to consider looking over your plumbing to be sure it's sound and won't introduce itself to you this way at 3 in the morning.

The 24 hour plumber remains on call at late times in the 24 hours of a day, why? Because there is less competition, and of course they can charge a lot more for the 24 hour convenience. It's quite possible that they will charge double that on weekends, and maybe even triple on holidays. If your fix is quick you might get lucky on an hour minimum charge, though maybe you won't.

Of course in the middle of a plumbing emergency, you may have no choice but to flip through the yellow pages to find a 24 hour plumber. Depending on the area you live in, you will have varying numbers of choices. If it's not too urgent (downstairs furniture already floating upstairs) you might be able to do some quick shopping for the best price.

One way to avoid such costly repairs is to be on top of your plumbing in the first place. Many today take the do it yourself approach as well to keep things up and less likely to wake them up at the wee hours of a holiday on a weekend. At the same time knowing your choices in advance may at least help you contain the bills a little in the event you aren't able to avoid the need for a 24 hour plumber.

In the end, you will find that plumbing can be a fun thing when you are using it as expected or a major headache when you are unable to use it. Today might be a great day to prepare for a 24 hour plumber.
