Hopefully, you know a good plumber already! If you do not then use a search engine on your mobile to look for “Emergency Plumber near me in TN.” The next problem is to weed out the chaff from the wheat and find which plumbing company to pick?

Can You Avoid the Need for An Emergency Plumber?
Not always, but you can take steps to lessen the risk that you may experience a plumbing disaster. We at My Professional Plumber suggest that you have your plumbing checked regularly.
An annual or semi-annual inspection will highlight areas of concern and will allow the opportunity to take remedial steps before the problem becomes an inconvenient and expensive experience.
If you can keep a lookout for any warning signs of trouble, this will allow you to schedule work at a convenient time without the stress of finding an emergency plumber.
Warnings Signs That You Will Require An Emergency Plumber
Some of these signs are easy to spot and others are not but they will give you a chance to stay ahead of problems.
Slow Draining Sinks, Bathtubs, and Shower Trays
The first thing you will probably notice is when you are in the shower. The shower tray starts to fill up with water lapping over your feet and ankles.
The same goes for your sink, with water taking forever to drain away. This may not seem like a problem that requires an emergency plumber, should you ignore this sign you are only storing up problems for the future.
The water is draining slowly because of clogs that form when certain materials like, warm grease, food, hair, soap, and toothpaste stick to the insides of drain lines. They grow over time and start to slowly restrict the flow of water through the drain lines. Eventually, the clogs will completely block the lines allowing no water to flow.
Using chemicals to remove the clogs can sometimes work, but the overuse of these chemicals may corrode older pipes and joints, resulting in leaks. Leaks are like tooth cavities, the longer you ignore going to the dentist the bigger the cavity becomes and the worse the treatment.
The safest way to remove clogs is to have a routine drain cleaning service from My Professional Plumber. Do not let a small leak become a gushing rush of gray water destroying your home or office.
Your Toilet Is Blocked!
This is not a pleasant situation to be in. Again, people pour chemicals down the toilet to try and remove the blockage, and again corrosion could occur to the pipes and joints. The blockage may not even be near the toilet and the chemicals cannot reach the source of the problem.
Another method of removing a blockage is to keep flushing the toilet. But the most likely outcome of this action is to cause an overflow of sewage onto your floor releasing dangerous bacteria and germs all over your bathroom.
If you are faced will such a mess, you may want to call us to arrange a visit. We offer a free inspection and are happy to discuss the issue over the phone before anyone from our team arrives at your house. Our technicians are equipped with protective clothing to keep them safe. After the mess is cleaned up, we will unblock your toilet.
Remember to keep this from happening again, you must follow the following rules: only put human waste, toilet tissue, water, and gentle cleansers down toilets. Most things people flush down a toilet are not designed to dissolve quickly in water and cause a gross blockage.
Blocked Sewer Lines
Remember all those items that can block your sinks and toilet, well they can also block your sewer line. If your sewer line is blocked or damaged, then the wastewater from your sink, bathroom, and toilet cannot reach the main sewer network and will back up into your home.
If you see discolored water backing up into your home and the smell of sewage, you have a serious health hazard to deal with, you need an emergency plumber straight away. Do not worry about the cost. We are an affordable company and care about our community. We don’t want them to live with dangerous sewage in one of the most important rooms of the house.
Your Pipes Have Burst
You absolutely need an emergency plumber for burst pipes, and you need to act very quickly! Before you call My Professional Plumber, there are a couple of things that you need to do first.
Find the main water supply valve and turn it off. Then open all the taps in your home to drain all the water that is left in the pipes. Then turn off the main electricity supply to avoid the risk of electrocution.
The sooner you do this the less water damage will occur and the quicker your home can dry out and undergo repairs.
Large Water Bills
Not all leaks are as oblivious as a burst pipe. Water lines are often hidden behind walls and under floors, and a leak is not always easy to spot. Often the first sign of a leak is a larger than expected water bill.
Damp patches on the floors, walls, and ceiling, together with the smell of mildew are other recognizable signs. If you notice that your lawn is wet and lush even during a dry spell, or if there is water pooling around the outside of your home, you might have a slab leak which is as bad as a plumbing problem can be because the water is undermining the structural integrity of your foundations.
