What do I need to know about emergency plumbing services?
A ‘plumbing emergency’ can mean a number of things: burst water pipe, blockages, leaking pipes, low water pressure, running toilets, fault boiler or anything else. The first thing to do, aside from not panicking, is to decide whether your problem really is an emergency. You will be charged extra for an emergency callout, especially outside of normal working hours, when prices can be twice as high! You will also likely have to pay a callout charge. If the problem can wait a day or more, you may be able to get a cheaper quote.
When looking for a plumber, check to see if they have specifically set rates for emergency callouts. Many firms now do, and this will make comparing your options much easier. You should also make sure to ask about any hidden charges separate from the quote they give you. Remember, quick callouts will almost certain incur a higher than average charge. Hiring a plumber out of work hours or at the weekend could cost you twice as much. Your quote will also need to cover the cost of any replacement parts.
Even in an emergency it is important to make sure your hire is fully qualified. A plumber will have completed an apprenticeship or equivalent industry qualification. Make sure you ask for proof of their qualifications - any ‘professional’ that cannot provide this is not worth considering. They may even belong to a national trade organisation such as the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC). These groups have high standards for work quality and professionalism that members are obligated to meet. It is also worth checking their online reviews, or to ask the Pro to provide them. Your final hire will also need to have active public liability insurance, as well as a guarantee for their work.
