Singapore homeowners depend on their plumbing system for their everyday needs. That said, plumbing problems can sometimes happen which greatly disrupt their daily routine. Thus, if one of your plumbing installations malfunctions, you should contact a professional to do the plumbing works that are needed.
A burst pipe is considered one of the leading causes of most residential plumbing emergencies. Fortunately, there are 24-hour emergency plumbing services that you can contact when this problem arises. Take note however that they are often more expensive than ordinary plumbing services. If you want to save money on emergency plumbing, here are some steps that you can follow:
DIsable Your Water Supply
Overflowing water resulting from a plumbing leak or plumbing choke can cause severe flooding. To prevent this from happening, you must turn off your supply valve to stop the water from running. In some cases, if your plumbing system can be turned off separately, you can just shut off the valve connected to the damaged pipe. Otherwise, have a plumbing repair or replacement done by your trusted plumber.
Shut Off Your Water Heater
If flooding in your home has been caused by water heater leaks connected to your water supply and electric power supply, you must switch them off quickly and disconnect them from the switchboard. Afterward, have a professional plumber inspect your water heater and resolve the leak. Should the electrical wiring of your heater be damaged, your plumber might suggest having a new water heater installation done.
Remove Any Dirt Blocking Your Drainage Pipe
In order to easily detect chokes from your plumbing system, shut off the main water supply valve of your house. If you notice a pool of water in your sink or floor drains after doing so, it is possible that your drainage system is clogged. Though the causes of drain and floor trap chokes vary, they are usually caused by grimes and dirt build-up. The easiest way to unclog sinks and floor traps is to remove the debris stuck in their drains. If the clog is in the pipes, however, it is better to call a plumber to assist you instead.
Inspect Your Drainage Or Water Supply System
In most Singapore homes, the water supply and drainage system are connected to the underground water supply and sewage system. When these get damaged during accidents and heavy rains, debris could enter them thereby causing issues such as drain chokes. Should you experience such a problem, check your plumbing system for any signs of malfunction. Otherwise, find a reliable plumber who can help you with your plumbing issues.
Contact An Emergency Plumber
Never let any plumbing issues you have to remain unresolved for 24 hours. Instead, you should contact a recommended plumber in Singapore immediately. In doing so, be aware of the things to consider when engaging a plumber to avoid falling victim to plumber scams.
