What is Emergency Plumbing?
Emergency plumbing is typically an emergency service offered by leading plumbing companies. While the type of emergency may differ, all emergency plumbing services aim to achieve the same goal. To prevent and reduce damage to residential or commercial properties. Whether it be to floors, walls, cabinets, kitchens, or bathrooms - a plumbing emergency can quickly inflict damage to most household areas.
An emergency plumber isn’t always required and emergency plumbing services aren’t always needed. It’s typically beneficial to assess the situation and ask yourself;
‘Can the problem wait?’, ‘Can I fix it myself’, ‘How much damage will be caused?’

What constitutes a Plumbing Emergency?
Whilst we can assist you with anything you deem to be an emergency, it is important to understand what typically constitutes a plumbing emergency. Here are the most common:
Burst Pipes -
Water from burst pipes can quickly spread and inflict household damage at an alarming rate. Many things are a catalyst for burst pipes such as age, accidental impact, faulty workmanship or low-quality plumbing fixtures. If you have a ruptured pipe, make sure to turn the water off and call an emergency plumber if needed.
Water Leaks -
Water leaks can be concerning regardless of how big or small. Whether leaking from tap washes, hot water storage tanks or drains - turn off the main water tap to ensure damage is minimised. A trickle can quickly turn into a torrent so contact an emergency plumber if needed.
Gas Leaks -
Gas leaks are among the most vital emergency plumbing repairs given the severity of the situation. If you smell or suspect a gas leak, immediately turn off your household gas supply, open all the windows, and call an emergency plumber if needed. If you suspect you have a Gas leak, never use electrical equipment, lighters, or any exposed flame.
Blocked or overflowing Toilets -
A blocked or overflowing toilet can rapidly get very messy. If you have limited toilets available, not being able to access one may simply not be an option. If you can’t unclog it yourself, turn the water off and ensure the toilet is not flushed again. Contact an emergency plumber if needed.
No Hot Water -
Having no hot water can be severely underestimated and may actually constitute a plumbing emergency. You could be experiencing a water heater malfunction, electrical fault, or plumbing leak. It could simply be the fault of your utility company. If not urgent, contact a plumber when available or determine if emergency plumbing services are required straight away.

How much does Emergency Plumbing Cost?
Emergency Plumbing costs can range significantly depending on both the emergency plumber and the actual emergency. Unfortunately, because problems can be so diverse and service locations can vary significantly - there is no universal emergency plumbing cost.
As a lead provider of Brisbane’s best emergency plumbing services, we always recommend being conscious of emergency plumbers and emergency plumbing companies rather than having pricing as the core determining factor.
