How a 24-Hour Plumber Can Help You

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Let’s face it, emergencies don’t always occur during typical office hours. Imagine if the Emergency Room was only open Monday through Friday from 9:00-5:00? A lot of people would be in some serious trouble! Well, the same applies to your plumbing system. When an emergency strikes, you want to be sure that there is a technician ready to help you, no matter the hour.

There is a wide range of plumbing issues that constitute emergencies, so don’t be afraid to pick up your phone! Waiting until the morning could spell significant damage to your home and property. Trust us, plumbing emergencies can be quite messy, so you’ll want the problem resolved as soon as possible.

Types of Plumbing Emergencies

Overflowing Toilet

As you can imagine, an overflowing toilet is something that causes many homeowners to panic—and for good reason! Not only will you no longer have use of the toilet, but there is potential for water damage and unhygienic situations. If you find yourself in this predicament, call an emergency plumber right away.

Burst Pipe

This is something that happens more often in the winter. When a pipe freezes, there is a rise in pressure along the pipe due to the ice. This can cause the pipe to burst. When a pipe bursts, water escapes into your home. This heavy flow of water can cause some serious damage to your property and furnishings. If you notice a pipe has burst, shut off the main water line and contact an emergency plumber as quickly as you can.

Sewer Line Blockage

If you’ve noticed that multiple drains around your home have become clogged or slow,  you most likely have a major problem deep within your drainage system. Your main sewer line is responsible for removing all of the wastewater from your home. If you notice the aforementioned tell-tale signs, contact a plumber before the situation worsens. A blocked sewer line can lead to sewage backing up into your home, which is definitely an emergency! Only a trained plumber will be able to tell if the problem lies within your sewer line. Their experience allows them to pinpoint the exact source of the problem and repair it before it becomes any worse.

Main Water Line Leak

There are a few big signs that indicate that your main water line is in jeopardy. If you notice water pooling in your lawn or in your basement, a sudden growth of mold, or no water coming from the taps, call a professional right away. A main line water leak will lead to very serious damage if left unattended.

A 24-hour plumber can help you in even the most dire of situations. If you need a 24-Hour plumber in Orlando, FL, you can count on Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc.!

What to Do When You Experience a Breach in Your Plumbing

Monday, April 7th, 2014

A break in your home’s plumbing can quickly turn into a serious problem. You can have pipe breaches inside your home, or along the water main, or in the sewer line. Regardless of where it occurs, it’s a major repair issue that needs to be fixed immediately with work from professional plumbers.

Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) has 24-hour emergency service for your needs for plumbing repair in Orlando, FL. And believe us: a plumbing breach counts as an emergency. Don’t hesitate to call us when you experience a major pipe break in your home.

What you should do about a plumbing breach

Although a break along the pipes in your home’s plumbing can appear frightening, do not panic yet: there’s help available and you can take a few steps yourself to reduce the damage.

If the breach occurs in the water lines that are bringing fresh water into your home, you need to shut off the water mains to prevent the gushing water from continuing to pump through the pipes. Make sure you know where your home’s water main shut off valve is as a precaution. For houses in a warm climate like that in Orlando where pipes are not in danger of freezing, this shut off valve is usually located outside the house. If you aren’t sure of the location of the shut off valve, contact a plumber to assist you with locating it so you’re ready in case of an emergency. If you are experiencing a large volume of water flooding into your home, you should also switch off the electricity to prevent high voltage shocks.

Now call for emergency repairs; don’t try to fix the problem yourself, as you could end up making it worse. While you wait for repairs to arrive, move away any valuables that might receive water damage from the breached pipe.

For breaches in sewer lines, you might not immediately notice the trouble the same way you would with a water main break or a break inside your house. Sewer line trouble will appear as soggy, foul-smelling leaks on the lawn, odors from the drains, and constant drain clogging. Eventually, sewage will start flooding into your basement or home foundations, but hopefully you will have already called for professionals to excavate and repair the problem. Sewer breaks are major jobs that require extensive digging work, so make sure you have experts on the job immediately.

Rely on skilled plumbers

As frightening as a plumbing breach can be, moving fast to shut off the water and summon plumbing professionals should prevent extensive harm to your home. Resist the urge to fix the break yourself and instead call for Orlando, FL plumbing repair service from the trained technicians at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). We’re here to help, any time of the day or night.

Plumbing Emergency Tip: How to Shut Off Your Water Supply

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

In the case of a plumbing emergency, the last thing you want to do is watch as more water continues to pour into your Casselberry home through a burst pipe, broken appliance or busted water valve. So, the first step should always be to turn off your main water supply valve. Here are some tips for finding that valve and getting the water supply off as soon as possible.

Finding Your Main Water Supply Valve

The valve is almost always located in one of two places. It will either be outside at the entry point for the water supply to your house or it will be located in your garage between the inlet and the main water line. Once you find the main water supply valve, turn it off to immediately stop more water from entering your home. If you notice that water is continuing to enter your home, you have a problem before the entry valve and should call the city immediately because one of their pipes might have burst.

 Shutting Off Individual Appliances

In many cases, the problem is related to a single appliance. If this is the case, you don’t necessarily need to turn off the entire water supply – just the supply valve for the specific appliance or fixture. Every major water fixture and appliance in your home should have its own shutoff valve in an easy to reach place. This goes for every sink, toilet, shower, dishwasher, and washing machine in your home – not having those valves can be dangerous.

Once you have turned off your water supply, it’s time to call Modern Plumbing Industries. Make sure to keep track of everything you do (take notes if you can) and supply that information to the plumber both on the phone and when they arrive.

For any plumbing emergency, give Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. a call. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week!
