The plumbing in your home; the pipes, fittings, etc, can fail at any time. When you simply look at the plumbing system in your home there is no visible evidence that something is about to fail, the same is true with the drains, you cannot tell in advance when they are going to back up and overflow all over the floor. Things like plumbing and drain failures happen and they can happen at any time; day or night. When there is a problem after hours the natural thing to do is call n emergency plumber in Wheeling IL.

Before you call, ask yourself if it truly is an emergency situation or is it something that can wait until morning. There are often things that can be done to stave off the plumber until the next day, if you can you can eliminate after hour rates.

Can it wait?

If you do have a problem with your plumbing, regardless of time of day or night, turn off the water supply to the affected fixture. If you can see that it is the fixture, then turn off the isolating valve, if you cannot find the source of the problem then it is best to turn off the main valve and call an emergency plumber in Wheeling IL.

If the problem is an overflowing toilet it can be isolated, stopping any further damage; as long as there is no need to flush the toilet, the problem can wait. If there is only one toilet in the house chances are an urgent repair is necessary. This is just as true with sinks; if the plumbing to the bathroom sink has failed, turn off the water supply and clean your teeth and wash up in the kitchen until you can arrange a plumber to come out during the day.

If you do have a true emergency then you have no option but to call an emergency plumber in Wheeling IL. You are invited to contact Reliance Plumbing Sewer & Drainage, Inc. for 24 x 7 service.
