Do You Have A Plumbing Emergency in Chelsea?
A plumbing emergency is not something that you put off until Monday, or until you’ve researched every plumber in the area. When you need an emergency plumber, you need to already have the number on hand. That’s even more true for gas line problems. If you live in Chelsea, you should be familiar with everything that a good Chelsea emergency plumber can do for you.
If your hot water system is old, its inefficiency is probably costing you a lot of money. In fact, if your tank has a broken thermostat or sediment buildup, your water can get so overheated that the tank or a pipe bursts its seals and starts leaking everywhere.
If you do end up with a burst pipe, whether from this or some other cause, put a drip pan and some towels right underneath it, if it is accessible and not leaking too quickly. Next, go and look for the shut off valve for that line and turn the water off. Now you can call a Chelsea emergency plumber, who can easily repair or replace the damaged pipe.
In fact, if it is your hot water system that is the problem, a plumber can if necessary, install a whole new hot water system for you. In the long run, an efficient new system could even end up saving you more than it cost.
The other major reason people need an emergency plumber is due to blocked drains. Usually, a blocked sink drain is due to all the accumulated grease washed down it. If it’s your shower or tub, the culprit is probably hair. If the blockage is near the drain, you might be able to plunge it out. If not, some drain cleaner might do the trick. If it doesn’t, you need to call an emergency plumber who will have the correct tools and equipment to do the job.
With a toilet, the problem is most likely that you tried to flush too many sanitary items at once. Plunging might do the trick. It might need a plumber with a snake, though. Of course, it’s also always possible that the trouble is tree roots or some other problem much further down the line. In that case, you need a plumber who can do a camera drain line analysis.
Gas Line Problems
The lines in old gas systems can develop carbon monoxide leaks, and that is something that you really want to watch out for. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible, gas that can become dangerous if it builds up too much. If your gas stove or heater won’t turn on, or if your gas system is old, you should call a Chelsea gas plumber right away. They can find and fix any problems and test your home for carbon monoxide.
