Emergency Overflows Plumbing Call Out in Southampton

There are few household problems that are more stressful than a sink or toilet that is spewing water all over the floor. Before it gets any worse, it’s time to call for overflows emergency services and get it fixed. You can count on the experienced Southampton plumbers of No1PHD to handle this critical situation for you; our 24/7 emergency service is always ready to help.

What You Should Do Before Your Plumber Arrives

Overflows are complex situations that plumbers need your help to manage. The first thing you should do is shut off your water supply so that the accumulated water doesn’t continue to build up. Once that’s done, you should try to clean up the mess as best you can; if there is still water everywhere when the plumber arrives, it might be more difficult to do the work, but have no fear, No1PHD plumbing and heating engineers will come well prepared.

If you haven’t spent a long time in your Southampton home or don’t usually take care of the household repairs, you may not know where the shut-off valves are located. In this case, you won’t be able to get the situation under control on your own. If you find yourself in this situation, you should be sure to inform No1PHD plumbing company of this when you call. This lets us know what to expect when we get there and that your situation is even more urgent than our average emergency call.

Finding the Problem

Dramatic though they may be, overflows are only a symptom of a problem, not a problem themselves. They are the result of particularly severe blockages in the pipes that can come from any number of sources. When one of our expert Southampton plumbers is on the scene of an overflow plumbing emergency, their first job is to determine what the underlying cause is. Once they have identified what caused the overflow in the first place, they can clear it out and make sure that similar incidents can’t happen again, allowing you to clean up the excess water and put the whole incident behind you. Some likely culprits are:

  • Foreign objects (hair, toilet paper, household waste, etc.).
  • Severe slime or mineral build-up.
  • Damaged pipes that have been contaminated with dirt, rocks, or other debris.

Sometimes it will be obvious what went wrong; for instance, if the problem began shortly after your child accidentally flushed a large toy down the toilet, it’s a safe bet that a toy is causing the obstruction! However, it isn’t always so easy to figure out. It may be necessary to use tools like a drain camera or a plumbing snake to investigate the problem. Your plumber may also take a look at other pipes within your home to see what condition the overall system is in. Rest assured, though – no matter what the trouble is, we will get to the bottom of it.

We Fix Big Issues Quickly

Sometimes the cause of an overflowing sink or toilet is simple enough to be resolved with a quick fix like using a plunger or some chemical drain cleaner. Problems like tree root ingress, however, often call for more extensive repairs that may not be possible to perform during the initial visit. In cases like these, No1PHD will make sure to stabilize your plumbing situation in the short term so that you don’t have to deal with an ongoing overflow crisis while everything gets sorted out. Once that is done, we will discuss what needs to be done and how soon we will be able to complete that work. We understand that the longer we take to finish up, the longer your day-to-day activities will be disrupted, and we can work outside of regular hours to get things done if necessary. Your comfort is our priority.

Almost everyone will be in the situation of needing an overflows emergency service at some point. If your plumbing ever fails you in your Southampton home, No1PHD will be there for you. Call us anytime you need to get an overflow emergency under control fast; we’re the right plumbing company for the job covering the whole of Southampton and surrounding area.

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.
