If you consider hiring an emergency plumber, it is crucial to note their working fee. The standard plumber's fee varies depending on whether the plumber is charging for one hour, no matter how long it takes. If the task takes a whole day, some recommend a day rate charge. Always remember to confirm call-out charges before hiring.

Factors Affecting a Plumber's Call-Out Fee

If you require a plumber to carry out any plumbing work in your home, then there are several aspects you need to consider before coming to a decision. Below are some of the factors:

  • The complexity of the task: the size of the task will be challenging to gauge if you are not familiar with plumbing. If another unseen problem appears that could indicate a major issue, then a competent plumber is likely to increase the final cost of the task.
  • Distance from the plumber's home: the further the distance from your premise to the plumber's, the more likely you will pay a higher fee than when your homes are closer.
  • How long the task takes: Some plumbers charge hourly while others at a day rate. If the task is simple, then it will be completed soon at a smaller fee. However, complex tasks not only require a skilled emergency plumber but the more the charges accrue.
  • Any other parts needed: If the plumbing problem requires additional parts to complete the task, you will have to purchase them besides the call-out fee. You will possibly have an opinion on parts to use, but the plumber might choose the materials that are mostly befitting the task.

What Are Plumbing Emergencies?

What Are Plumbing Emergencies?

Most individuals expect their plumbing systems to run perfectly, which most do not ascertain the significance until a plumbing emergency happens. Pay close attention to any plumbing emergency and contact local plumbers. We offer professional service that guarantees customer satisfaction.

Common Emergency Plumbing Issues We Can Solve

Some of these plumbing problems pose great damage to your property or possibly a risk to your premise safety. Below are some of the common urgent plumbing hiccups you can tell if you need to contact an emergency plumber:

Blockages and Clogged Drains:

Blocked toilets, showers, and faucets can cause a built-up pressure in your pipework system, leading to clogged drains. The smelly odour from the drainages indicates an alert that dirt is not passing through. Call your local plumber to fix the blockage problem before your appliances are damaged by the sewer finding its way back.

Clog drains can be a nuisance to unclog. Before contacting your plumber, try solving it using a plunger. You might free yourself from the expenses of hiring a plumber. However, if you fail after several attempts, contact a qualified emergency plumber. So if you need the best choice for drainage services, we are here for you.

Overflowing Toilet:

Following an overflowing toilet, we make sure to turn off the water supply to prevent flooding your home. At the bottom or base of the wall-mounted type toilet, there is a knob; encircle it clockwise to stop water from passing through the drain.

Remove the covering lead, then lift the float cup high to enable running water to stop. Again make sure you turn the water source supply off; you will eliminate flooding water problems. After that, contact your emergency plumber immediately.

Sewer Backup:

If you notice sewage is finding its way back into your home through the cesspit, that could severely affect your drainage system. When you observe gurglings in your toilets, bathtub, and sink drains, it is an actual plumbing emergency. We manage emergency plumbing projects of any domestic and commercial sewer backup as our team provide drainage fixtures properly.


Your drainage system should be airtight to overcome water pressure, leaks might seem minor issues requiring less attention, but soon they become a terrible urgent menace. Any hidden leakages you notice coming from your sink's puddles, dripping tap, or if there is a burst pipe should be fixed early to avoid future expenses.

If you don't fix leakages, it will lead to severe damages and effects:

  • There will be a significant increment in your water bill utilities
  • Mould and mildew can develop on your appliances as a result of water leaks
  • Mould and mildew can lead to adverse effects on your health
  • Household water is at risk of contamination as impurities can enter the pipework when the pressure drops
  • Leaks coming from your rooftop can damage the roof and deteriorates the integrity of the walls

No Hot Water:

If your water doesn't just get hot, then your water heating system might have a problem. If it is a gas water heater, it might be quite difficult for you when troubleshooting it unless you are familiar with gas-powered heaters.

All people should hire gas-safe registered engineers checked through Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), thus ensuring customer safety and health. Our gas safe engineers will perform boiler repairs, inspect the central heating system and service gas appliances.

Malfunctioning Boiler:

Boilers are quite safe and very reliable, considering certain requirements are consistently met. However, if you notice the boiler not working like normally making loud noises or switching itself off, it has a problem. Faulty boilers require instant boiler installation fixing from before internal problems turning into the worst scenario.

Water Pressure Problems:

Low running water in a boiler can be catastrophic to the tubes. Lack of maintenance usually leads to low water situations in a boiler. However, it will lead to rupturing or blistering the pipes due to high temperatures with low water to absorb that heat from the central heating systems. Get our immediate plumbing service before the problem spreads to other parts.

Water Heater Malfunction:

Do you experience heating work issues and unusual odour coming from the running water? Well, that indicates your water systems are faulty and requires key assignment through plumbing. Hire our fully qualified plumber before the condition worsen. Remember to observe the manufacturer's maintenance directives and have your emergency plumber inspect the central heating system annually.

What to Do in a Plumbing Emergency

What to Do in a Plumbing Emergency

When you encounter any plumbing emergencies at one point or another, it can incite panic, but it would be quite helpful to remain calm and take the mandatory precautions. Whether you experience such a scenario, you need to hire a local plumber immediately before the condition worsens. If you have never encountered a plumber, when plumbing companies come in, contact them and depending on the task at hand, we will send a team to your place.

If you notice water on your floor, it might be coming from hidden leakages concealed in the ceiling or a soaked chunk of drying wall that has fallen. Below are some of the steps to follow when you encounter such an emergency:

Turn Off the Water Source Immediately:

The first thing to do is switch off any running water source instantly. For your toilet, reach the knob and turn it clockwise until it can't turn anymore. With that, you will have cut off the water supply into the wall-mounted type toilet. If your house is flooding with water, then turn off the main regulator.

Turn Off the Water Heater:

It is advisable to disconnect your water heater in an emergency scenario to avoid the vandalisation of water system units. Cut off the heater's knob by encircling it to stop the extreme gushing of heat inside, which can cause rupture.

Tackle and Address Smaller Leaks:

Leaks are simple to recognise and easy to stop. While waiting for your plumber to come, try stuffing the pipes with water-absorbing materials, or placing buckets under the leaks to prevent water from flooding your premises. If, by any chance, you have a plumber's tape, then you will easily minimise leaks. Note where the leaks are and address the plumber on his or her arrival.

Open Drains and Spigots Out Your Premise:

After disconnecting all your water supply sources, open the outdoor drains and spigots to empty water from your home. Ensure you empty and clear any water from the drainage system; if a backup occurs, then use a plunger, moving it up and down several times until the force clears the clog. It is not recommended to use chemical cleaners at emergency times as they might cause more damage before the plumber arrives.

Call the Plumber and Address Your Problems:

Remember to contact your emergency plumber or plumbing company and notify them of what issues you need to fix. If the situation is nasty beyond your control, a qualified plumber will let you know the precautions you need to take. Listen carefully, and if the plumber tells the situation is out of control, wait until they show up with a team.
