Emergency Plumbing Repair
Emergency Plumbing Service Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week
When it comes to plumbing issues, you don’t have time to waste. In many circumstances, you have enough time to plan an appointment for which you can prepare. However, crises can occur, and you need immediate assistance. That’s why Atlas Plumbing & Heating is ready to take your call and deploy an emergency plumber 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We’ll assist you through the process and arrive as soon as possible.
We Provide Complete Emergency Plumbing Services
Some services just cannot be postponed till the next day. If your pipe breaks in the middle of the night, or you have family arriving and the water suddenly stops working, call our experts immediately for assistance.
Some of the most typical plumbing situations we are called to solve include:
No Running Water
If you’re turning on the faucet after tap and finding no water flowing everywhere, you’ve got a plumbing emergency. You could go the extra mile and call your neighbors to see if they are experiencing the same issue, indicating a municipal water supply problem. Otherwise, we’ll send a professional plumber to investigate the problem. Possible causes include clogs in the tap connection, old or improperly installed water lines, and damaged pipes.
Dripping Ceiling Water
Even a few drops might suggest a more significant issue than you perceive. Consistent water dripping will result in harmful mold and mildew formation. Ignoring signs of pipe leaks may result in future water damage treatment and repair costs. A plumber from Atlas Plumbing & Heating may inspect the issue to see if it is caused by a faulty faucet, poor sealing, a water heater problem, or a broken pipe.
A blockage in your drain is likely causing the water to overflow out of your toilet, which is never a good thing. An obstruction in the vent pipe, which draws air into the plumbing system to replace the air that pumps with each flush, may cause your toilet to clog more often in the days before the overflow.
Your filler float is placed too high if, on the other hand, water is dripping from the tank rather than the bowl. This means that the sidewalls of your tank will leak because too much water will fill it up before it touches the filler float.
If your morning shower suddenly becomes icy, check the other faucets to see if they can generate warm water. Additionally, you should check to see whether anybody else has recently used your water heater’s hot water supply. It’s time to call an emergency plumber if you can’t figure out where the frozen water is coming from.
When flooding strikes your house, every minute matters in terms of recovering swiftly from minor damage, not to mention that if hazardous germs are present in the floodwater, it becomes unhealthy to be in. Flooding may occur in various ways, including extreme weather, a faulty dishwasher, an overflowing toilet, a malfunctioning washing machine, or a failed water heater.
Whether there is root growth in the sewage system, something that shouldn’t have been flushed, or a damaged drain line, our plumbers can promptly assess the problem before recommending a remedy. We’ll use a camera to check the drains and fix them as efficiently as possible. If nothing works, our specialists can walk you through other possibilities.
You should contact an emergency plumber if your clogged toilet is not emptying. We’ll remove the block without causing more harm to your toilet since we have the right tools and training to manage such situations. The last thing you want to do is break the pipe or push the obstruction farther into the toilet.
There are things you may do as soon as you see the water from a burst pipe to assist in preventing more damage. First, cut off the water main and switch off the power if the pipe is near any electrical equipment. Then, turn on your faucets to assist in relieving pressure buildup. After you’ve taken preventative measures, contact our staff to repair your pipes.
No Hot Water
While a lack of hot water may not seem an emergency, if you rely on it or if your water heater is fueled by gas, it demands an after-hours appointment. If you have a gas water heater, a lack of hot water may signal a problem with your gas line. This risk should not be overlooked since it might result in a fire.
Have you discovered significant damp areas in your yard even though it hasn’t rained or been watered recently? Your home’s plumbing system includes an underground pipe that connects to the sewer, and if this pipe breaks, you’ll likely notice damp or sunken patches around your yard. You should immediately take action to prevent sewage germs from infiltrating your lawn and even getting into your drinking water.
Sewer Line Stoppages
Foul smells that don’t go away, various obstructions throughout the house, and abnormally sluggish draining are all signs that your sewage line is clogged. While ordinary clogs may frequently be resolved without after-hours assistance, a main sewage line block is considered a serious plumbing emergency since it is the only plumbing line that drains all water from your home. You may gently clear away surplus water, but don’t use any over-the-counter drain cleaners since they may cause more harm. Keep everyone away from hazardous locations, turn off the water, and call our experts as soon as possible to investigate the situation.
Washing Machine Hose Burst
Washing machine hoses bursting is one of the top causes of house flooding, and insurance claims should be handled immediately. If you observe leaking or pooling water underneath your washing machine, ensure the hose is correctly attached; it may only need to be tightened. If this is not the case, contact an emergency plumber immediately. Even if flooding has not occurred, persistent leaking water may cause significant water damage to your walls and ceiling.
Other Common Plumbing Issues
Understanding the warning signs of emergency repair services is essential for dealing with these circumstances properly.
Here are six additional signs of a plumbing emergency:
- Sump Pump Failure
- Downspout and Duct Obstruction
- Gas Leaks
- Rusted Pipes
- Loud Gurgling Sounds
- Bad Smell All Over the Place

How Do I Handle a Plumbing Emergency?
Here are some recommended practices to follow as you wait for emergency services:
Turn off the water: If you’re unsure where the issue comes from, turn off the main water valve. If a leak originates from a particular location, you may turn off the water directly to that location.
Don’t use chemicals: As previously said, buying store-bought chemical drain cleaners may seem smart, but you may wind up making the situation worse by harming pipes.
Examine the damage: The more you know about what’s happening, the more prepared the plumber will be with materials before arriving at your home.
Don’t put off contacting a professional: Putting off emergency services may result in greater expenditures owing to more severe damage occurring while you wait.
Residential & Commercial Plumbing Emergencies
Though the two have many practical similarities, commercial plumbing has some intricacies that residential plumbing systems do not. Our plumbers have the skills and experience to handle residential and commercial plumbing systems.

We have the resources to tackle any home plumbing problem, from your sink to your sewer.
Commercial plumbing crises may be more complicated than residential ones since they often impact many customers or inhabitants. A clogged toilet or a lack of hot water may be detrimental to a company, so we always advise hiring a plumber as soon as possible to keep things going smoothly.
Restaurants, Bars, and Other Food Establishments
Because these are high-traffic locations, resolving issues as soon as possible is vital. Avoid negative feedback and health risks by contacting emergency services as soon as possible.
Plumbing setbacks may reduce sales, force staff to take additional sick days, and jeopardize a company’s image. To prevent these issues, business owners should respond swiftly to plumbing situations.
