Having an emergency plumber matter is not a pleasant situation. Whether it be a clogged bathtub or a burst pipe with ongoing water leakage, it will take a calm, well thought out plan to deal with. In a water leakage situation, obviously knowing where the shutoff valves are, to shut off the water supply, would be your first logical action.
There are many emergency plumbers available to do emergency services. The first question one might ask is if you want to transact with a self-employed plumber or a large plumbing company who have many staff plumbers to tackle the job at hand. Plumbing companies tend to have a reputable service history, compared to an individual self-employed plumber. If one has prior satisfactory experience with a plumber and feel confident of his/her services, then this may be a good choice also.
Being prepared to solicit plumbing services is best conducted in a strategic set of steps. This will optimize your chances of getting the plumbing issue fixed promptly and at a financial cost that best suits your immediate needs. Customers always need to be prepared for the worst, so having steps in place beforehand will be of great benefit.
One has to determine whether the plumbing issue is really an urgent emergency, or can it wait till normal business hours. Emergency services are billed at a higher rate, due to the cost of providing these services on a 24/7 basis with a qualified, plumbing technician. Be sure to ask the approximate rates for your particular plumbing issue, so there are no unexpected surprises. Feel free to ask if the hourly rate starts from when the plumber leaves his place of business; or if the clock starts the moment the plumber arrives at your location. One may also ask what needs to be done before the plumber is to arrive, to assess and fix the plumbing issue. You may need to clear the work area of your property or household items.
