Different types of plumbing emergencies

Basement Flood – This can cause serious damage to your home and create a lot of stress. A basement flood can be caused by stormwater intrusion, pipe leakage, or pump failure.

Toilet Flood: If water from the toilet does not drain and continues to flow around the floor, you should call an OKC plumber immediately.

Blockage of the Drain: Disposal leftover food, hair, grease and other substances. The kitchen sink can block the drain. These solid wastes don’t dissolve in water, but instead remain in the pipe, causing water flow interruptions.

Problem with the Water Heater: If your plumbing fixtures are damaged, your water heater will not provide hot water. This will cause daily household chores like washing and bathing to be disrupted.
