What should you do in a plumbing emergency?
If you have a flood due to an emergency plumbing issue, the first thing you should do is shut off the water supply. If it is a small plumbing leak you can sop up the water with towels to be sure the flooring isn’t damaged from the sitting water. Next, you should call us. We can give you initial help over the phone and will let you know if the situation could be dangerous.
Iowa winters sometimes means frozen pipes. You probably discovered your pipes were frozen when you turned on your water and either a trickle came out or no water at all.
Preventing frozen pipes is always preferable to dealing with the aftermath of a plumbing emergency. In colder temperatures, take proactive measures such as keeping interior temperatures consistent, allowing faucets to drip slowly, and insulating vulnerable pipes.
Uncontrollable Water Temperature
If you are having problems with inconsistent or uncontrollable water temperatures in your tub or shower it could indicate a problem with your water heater.

Sump Pump Running Non-Stop
If your sump pump runs non-stop under normal conditions, it may fail when you need it most. Dealing with a sump pump that runs non-stop is not only inconvenient but can also put a strain on the system and increase the risk of failure. By contacting our emergency plumbing service, you can have the issue properly diagnosed and resolved, ensuring the effective operation of your sump pump and protecting your property from potential water damage.
Power Lost to Sump Pump
The same power that knocks out power could also flood your basement. In the event of an extended power outage, it’s essential to have a plan in place to manage potential water intrusion. This could involve temporarily using a portable sump pump, manually removing water using buckets or a wet/dry vacuum, or by contacting us for assistance.
The fill valve, also known as the ballcock, controls the refill of water in the toilet tank after each flush. If the fill valve is faulty or damaged, it may not shut off completely, leading to a running toilet. Inspect the fill valve and replace it if necessary.
A running toilet is not only annoying but can be pretty costly over time. By addressing the problem promptly or seeking professional assistance, you can save water, reduce costs, and restore the proper functionality of your toilet.
Whether they are in your kitchen or bathroom, clogs can slow you down, it also may cause a backup.
To avoid future clogs, it’s important to practice preventive maintenance. Use drain strainers to catch hair, food particles, and other debris, and avoid pouring grease or oil down the drain. Regularly flush drains with hot water to help keep them clean and clear.
If you have a leaky pipe, the first step is to turn off the water supply to the affected area. Locate the main water shut-off valve for your property and close it to stop the flow of water. This will prevent further water damage and give you time to address the leak.
If the leak is small and manageable, you can apply a temporary fix using plumber’s tape or a pipe repair clamp. These can provide a temporary seal to stop or minimize the leak until a permanent solution can be implemented.
