When To Call For Emergency Plumbing Repair
While some plumbing problems, like a dripping faucet, can wait, other situations require calling a plumber right away to protect your home. If you’re not sure when to call a plumber for immediate assistance, here are a few situations when it’s warranted.
Risk Of Flooding
If your home is at risk of flooding because of a burst pipe or failed sump pump, then calling for immediate plumbing help is the right call. The more water that gets into your home, the more expensive it will be to fix.
When sewage backs up into the home, it creates a health hazard and can prevent you from using your bathroom.
If a pipe breaks because of freezing or because it’s rusted, it can dump hundreds of gallons of water into your house if you don’t deal with it as soon as possible. Failing to fix a burst pipe quickly can lead to water damage costing hundreds of dollars to repair, and it can bring on the growth of mold and mildew.
When time is critical, and you can’t wait until regular business hours, call Pristine Plumbing, Inc. for our 24 hour plumbing repair service.
When To Call A 24 Hour Plumber For Water Heater Repair
On-demand hot water isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity. And while your water heater works day and night for years to provide you and your family with hot water whenever you need it, eventually, it will begin breaking down and require replacement.
Water heaters suffer from various problems as they age, and you may be tempted to call a plumber for emergency repair, but here are a few questions to ask before you do.
How Dangerous Is It?
If you’re not getting the amount of hot water you’re used to, then you can probably wait to schedule an appointment. However, if your water heater is leaking and you run the risk of water damage, calling for help immediately makes sense.
How Long Will You Have To Wait?
Another factor that determines whether you need water heater repair now or if you can wait is the time you’ll be without hot water. If the water heater breaks down during the week, then you can probably get by for a day or two without hot water while waiting for a technician to arrive. However, if you’re facing being without hot water for multiple days, such as during a holiday, then calling for emergency help is advisable.
Where Is The Leak?
If you notice that there’s water leaking from your water heater, the leak’s location can determine whether you can wait for an appointment or you need immediate help. If the leak is coming from the valve pipes that connect the water heater to your plumbing system, you can rest easy because it’s a relatively simple repair. However, if the leak is coming from the tank itself, call for help right away because it means the tank is structurally unsound and requires immediate replacement.
When you determine that you need emergency water heater repair, you can count on the pros at Pristine Plumbing, Inc. to be there quickly and to leave your home in pristine condition when we’re finished.

Our Clogged Drain Repair
Many Orange County homeowners scoff at the idea of calling a professional plumber to clean their drains because, after all, they can just use a cheap drain cleaner and be done with it. However, here are a few reasons to consider hiring a pro.
Professional Plumbers Have Experience, Knowledge & Training
Plumbing is a vocation, and it takes years to become adept at this job. A professional plumber can solve a plumbing problem more quickly and accurately than the average homeowner.
Professional Plumbers Have More Advanced Tools
While you can buy some professional plumbing tools at your local big-box retailer, most homeowners don’t have them lying around. Also, professional plumbers have tools and techniques not available to the average resident, and they have the skill to use them properly.
Professional Plumbers Provide More Accurate Repairs
Because of their training and experience, professional plumbers can more quickly identify plumbing problems and fix them instead of having to guess what’s going on.
Professional Plumbers Are Licensed & Insured
If you try to fix a plumbing problem yourself and end up causing more damage, then it’s on you to fix it. However, professional plumbers are licensed and insured, which means you can trust the work they do, and if something goes wrong, they’re responsible for making it right.
