Our homes are filled with water, gas and electricity lines which are ideally accessible for when emergencies happen. However, hidden behind the walls of our home are those same water, gas and electricity lines. Without direct access to them, when emergencies arise it can be scary. Luckily, there are emergency service pros ready to help you when you need it. Read about a homeowner from London, Ontario who hired an emergency plumber for $3,700.
The Emergency Leak
A homeowner from London, Ontario found themself in an unfortunate situation when they noticed a leak behind a sealed wall. They knew there was plumbing behind the wall, but were unable to pinpoint the exact location and cause. There was no way to determine the cause of the leak without causing damage to the entire wall.
In moments like these, it can be tempting to break through the wall to stop the leak, however, this can be dangerous. Without knowing exactly what is behind the wall, you run the risk of hammering into something that can make everything worse. This could be a water line-causing a bigger leak, hitting a gas line, causing a much more dangerous leak, and finally, hitting an electrical wire causing sparks and possibly much more damage to your home.
This is why we always recommend hiring a pro, even in an emergency. A pro brings experience, knowledge, and proper equipment to resolve the situation with the least amount of damage possible.
