Common Plumbing Emergencies (And What To Do About Them)
An overflowing toilet can be caused by a number of issues. However, gradual blockage of non-flushable items is usually the main culprit. The first thing to do is stop the flowing water. It can be done in a number of ways from lifting the float within the toilet or even closing the flapper hidden in the toilet tank. You’d then need to plunge the toilet in order to unblock it.
Excessive Hot Water
Nobody enjoys a cold shower. Conversely, an extremely hot shower (especially on a summer’s day) isn’t great either. Our plumber South Melbourne team has seen time and again, over-heated hot water heaters tend to be the primary cause. Firstly, you can turn it off and if appropriate, turn on the hot water taps within the house. Make sure to only to do if it can be done in a safe manner. This will drain the hot water. Be sure to call a plumber to diagnosis the issue and fix it up.
With either of these issues, always be sure to prioritise your safety. Many plumbing problems require a professional to take a look at it. First, because of Victorian building guidelines but most importantly, your own care and of those around you.
