Why An Emergency Plumber May Be Hard To Find

by | Nov 21, 2014 | Plumbing and Plumbers

Burst pipes, leaking showers, blocked toilets – these are three common issues plumbers will face. If you are unfortunate enough to deal with a plumbing predicament in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning, you will likely require the services of an emergency plumber. Trained to work around the clock, these professionals will aim to make you feel less frantic by arriving at your residence promptly to carry out repairs, replacements and installations. It’s not advisable to address emergency issues alone however, you should try to prepare for the unexpected when hiring help.

Busy Schedule

Someone who works around the clock will deal with many emergencies throughout the day. It would be best to get in touch with an emergency plumber in advance, but then again, how are you supposed to know when an emergency is going to arise? It may be best to write down the numbers of a few recommended tradespeople in your area so that should one not be available, you have a back-up solution. The majority of plumbers will have multiple contact numbers too, therefore if you can’t get through the first time there will be hope of reaching them on a different line.

Paid Per Hour

In most cases, the price you pay will be based on the amount of time a plumber works for and the types of materials used. The price you pay will also depend on your location and the time of night or day you necessitate emergency services. For a lot of people this can add to the predicament, because installation, repair and maintenance services can be quite costly if the plumber has to hop out of bed to assist you. Ask if you can pay a fixed quote if you are concerned about paying by the hour.

Trade Association

The largest plumbing industry association in Australia is Master Plumber. All plumbers who are skilled to work on an emergency basis will be featured on this trade association’s website, therefore you can easily pick out the experienced from the inexperienced. It’s not worth taking a chance when spending money on these services, because you could end up out of pocket and having to pay for further work to be completed! Bound by a strict code of ethics, the association will only feature highly trained tradesmen.
