Dealing with Plumbing Emergencies in Arizona

You never know when something might go wrong with your plumbing system. This may seem very scary and it will probably make you feel uncomfortable, but the most important thing is not to panic. It is not uncommon to experience water leakage or something similar that can easily endanger your property and make you worry about your home, in that case you should immediately call the plumber because only professionals can properly handle your plumbing problems and solve them for good.


It is very common for the citizens of Sahuarita to experience a broken toilet and clogged drains. First symptoms of a broken toilet are the murmuring sounds that are often just being ignored until a bigger problem comes up like water leaking, unable to flush, slow filling etc. If your toilet or other parts of plumbing system aren’t functioning well, you should call the plumber to examine it. You should always try to control the situation and prevent further damage and development of the problem. If you occasionally check and take care of your plumbing, you won’t have to deal with plumbing emergencies. Also if you solve your plumbing problems as soon as you notice them, you’ll certainly pay less.


As we said, you mustn’t panic! Panic won’t bring you anything good. As soon as you can, contact Swanson Plumbing Services (the most reliable plumbers in Arizona) and use the following tips to minimize the damage:

First you need to turn off the water supply. You probably know where the main water valve is located in your apartment or house and you should shut it off in order to repress the water from making further damage. Almost all valves all shut off when turned clockwise. If you’re not dealing with a major leakage, you can fix it easily. It is good to always have plumber’s tape at home. You can wrap this tape around the leaking pipe and fix minor leakage. If you don’t have this tape at home, try wrapping a towel around it or an old rag and put a bucket under the leaking area. This way the water won’t spread and spill everywhere. After you’ve done this, it should be safe to call the plumbers. Drain the water out of the pipe after you have the valve is turned off. If you think your drain is clogged, you should try unclogging it and direct the water out of the flooded area. Do this only if you’re certain in what you’re doing. If you feel unconfident or you have no idea what are you doing, you can just make more damage to the pipes in the process. Do not use strong chemicals like hydrochloric acid, nor extensive and massive tools that aren’t meant to be used for plumbing.


If you have problems with your water heater, you shouldn’t try repairing it on your own. Leakage from a boiler can be very dangerous and it can cause a major flood in your home. The problem can also be in electrical malfunction and that is very dangerous for you to try fixing it. In this case you can only turn off the water supply, call the plumber and wait for him. Clogged drains are also a common problem which can cause a major flood in the house. In this case you should use a plunger to let it breathe. Don’t put chemicals in the drain nor more water if you’re not sure what is causing the problem. For clogged toilet also use a plunger and if that doesn’t help, seek for professional help. Always have some tools at home, to be able to deal with emergencies.
