Tools You Need for Plumbing Emergencies

Plumbing repairs require prompt attention. You should never attempt repairs. But taking action and calling us will help avoid significant water or sewer damage.

You Need a Plunger

Plungers are essential tools for emergency plumbing. If you do not have one, overflowing toilets can create tremendous stress. There are two types of plungers. Cup plungers work best for toilet clogs, and flanged plungers are ideal for minor sink clogs.

You Need a Drain Snake

Minor drain clogs are no match for a small drain snake. Some clogs though need immediate professional intervention. Never use a drain snake if you do not know how to operate it properly. It is best to rely on a professional plumbing company. They can dislodge serious toilet, sink, tub, or shower clogs.

You Need a Pipe Wrench

You need to have a pipe wrench in your arsenal. It will ensure you can remove pipes or tighten them with the solid and rigid jaws. Be careful using a pipe wrench on PVC pipes.

You Need an Adjustable Wrench

Adjustable wrenches can become lifesavers in a plumbing emergency. They can tighten connections and loose bolts and nuts. Choose a wrench set with different sizes and grips for the best results.

If you have a leak or burst pipes, we urge you to shut off the water at the source or your home and call us for a prompt appointment. Taking quick action will protect your home and family. Call American Plumbing Heating & Cooling today for all your plumbing emergencies.
