A plumbing emergency can be both expensive and inconvenient, and will often require you and your family to shut off all water to the home until a plumber shows up to perform hundreds’ (sometimes thousands’) of dollars worth of repairs to restore service to the home. The good news is that in many cases, these emergencies are predictable, if not preventable.

Our team at Ray Lusk Plumbing is a phone call or mouse click away 24 hours a day, and we will gladly help you deal with any emergencies that you might encounter at surprisingly affordable prices. But why not call us for an inspection of your household plumbing before you have an emergency? Here are a few of the leading causes of plumbing emergencies, and how to deal with them.

Undetected Leaks-It’s easy to detect a leaking faucet or a water heater leaking, and a constantly running toilet definitely calls attention to itself. But if you have a sudden increase in your water bill, you may have a deeper leak. We specialize in detecting and repairing leaks of any size, and we are currently offering a $299 leak detection special!

Older Appliances-Toilets and water heaters often come with an anticipated duration of service, and once they pass that date, they are far more likely to need repairs or replacement. Water heaters can be particularly susceptible to damage from rust over time. The good news is that making an upgrade is more affordable than you may think, and can pay for itself over time in terms of water and/or energy savings.

Deep Clogs-As a homeowner, you are responsible for any servicing of your sewer line that connects into the sewer main. Without occasional service, you could be forced to deal with costly repairs due to tree roots or non-biodegradable materials that were flushed. We can always run a camera down your sewer line and take a closer look.
