1. Your water bill has gone up dramatically.

Nobody likes paying more than they have to for their utility bills, and if you’ve recently noticed your water bill is unusually higher than it once was, this is a sign of a plumbing emergency. You likely have a leak in your pipes or faucet that has gone unnoticed, and if you let this problem continue, you could return to a swimming pool of a home. We recommend calling your emergency plumber as soon as possible.

2. You have a blocked drain.

If Drano just isn’t doing the trick for one of your clogged drains, you probably need the assistance of a professional plumber. In fact, a blocked drain is one of the most common issues homeowners face. You’ll know you have a blocked drain if you have standing water around your drains, as it’ll take longer for the water to disappear down the drain. In some cases, you might even have issues of overflowing.

3. There are weird odors of sewage in your home.

If you have disgusting odors of sewage in your home, you are most definitely in a plumbing emergency. There may or may not be any obvious visual signs of a plumbing issue, but if it’s hard to breathe in your home due to the smell, your best bet is to call your local plumber. They can use the necessary tools to assess your plumbing system and ensure it’s still safe to use.

If you ignore these smells, you and your family could be exposed to unsafe smells that could affect your health.
