Overflows Emergency Plumbing Callout

Homeowners have to deal with many plumbing issues over time. Overflows are some of the most common ones. An overflow can occur in different parts of the plumbing system and without the proper repairs, can cause cascading damages. It’s why you should get the correct solutions for your plumbing overflows as soon as possible. Our emergency services would be perfect. At No1PHD, we provide a broad range of plumbing services, and plumbing overflows are some of our specialities. An overflow, no matter how small it appears, can be frustrating. Imagine trying to use an overflowing kitchen sink as you prepare food.

Besides being annoying, plumbing overflows are health risks. Then you would have to deal with the smell as well, which can be unbearable. Professional plumbers can fix these problems as soon as you alert them. Never attempt to deal with an overflow yourself because you can’t be sure what the problem is. Homeowners should learn a few basics of plumbing overflow problems, so they know to request the right service. If you can explain the issue to us, we are equipped to recommend the correct solutions. Below, we explain a few of the frequent problems we deal with in regard to plumbing overflows.

Sewer Overflow

When water leaves the bathroom, toilet, kitchen and laundry room, it drains into the sewer pipes and the sewerage system. If something interferes with this process, the system can overflow, causing sewerage to bubble up to the top. An overflowing sewer can cause wastewater to flow out of the exterior cover. Immediately you see this, call a plumber. A problem in the primary sewer line can lead to other issues like multiple drains backing up. It can also result in overflows in different fixtures such as the sinks.

Overflowing Toilet

Overflow in the toilet causes water to fill the bowl more than normal. In severe cases, the overflow can spill over, flooding the bathroom. The hazards of such a situation cannot be exaggerated enough. We structured our emergency plumbing overflow services for such cases.

Sink Overflows

Most of the plumbing overflow cases that we deal with happen in the bathroom and kitchen sinks. These plumbing fixtures are some of the most-used, so, understandably, they are more prone to issues. An overflow will cause water to drain slowly or not drain at all. The excess water that tends to stagnate in the sink can turn your kitchen or bathroom into a mosquito breeding ground.


Potential Causes and Fixes

Where do all these problems come from? We find that when customers comprehend plumbing issues, they deal with them effectively and prevent recurrences. Blockages contribute to 90% of plumbing overflows. When foreign objects end up in the drainage pipes, they clog them and make it difficult for wastewater to pass. Some of the objects that block sewer pipes are wet wipes, sanitary towels and tissue rolls flushed down the toilet. From the bathroom, hair is the biggest cause of blockages. Fat, grime and grease from the kitchen sink can accumulate in the pipes.

No1PHD can remove all these types of blockages with advanced equipment and the latest techniques to get rid of even the toughest clogs. Using cameras, we can see through the darkest corners. We find that the right-angle intersections carry the largest buildup and, therefore, we concentrate on cleaning here.

Tree roots and other plants can grow inside drainage pipes, causing blockages. If not removed, tree roots keep growing, which places undue pressure on the pipes. Our plumber will remove the overgrowth and repair any damage to the pipes.

Rusty and corroded pipes can also interfere with the drainage process. Too much scale and sediment buildup can reduce the size of the pipes, making drainage an issue. Our lead pipe replacement services come in handy when facing such issues.

Wet weather overflows occur when stormwater ends up in the drainage pipes, and this overwhelms the sewer system. The drainage and stormwater systems run separately because each section has specific requirements. However, during heavy rains, the pipes can get overwhelmed, causing spillage into the drainage system. In such an instance, we establish the problems in the stormwater pipes to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
