Emergency Plumbing Services in Fearrington, NC

Scheduling a plumbing appointment is fine for the majority of plumbing problems. However, sometimes there is an emergency that cannot wait to be fixed. Plumbing emergencies are often impolite that way. They don’t wait for convenient times, like business hours before occurring. If you have a pipe burst at 3 in the morning, you need to have it fixed right then.

That’s why we offer a full range of emergency plumbing services throughout Fearrington, NC. Call us at any time, day or night, and we’ll send someone right over to take care of your emergency plumbing needs.


So, how can you tell if your plumbing problem is an emergency or not? Well, there are a couple of distinct ways to tell. First, if any part of your home is flooding, call us right away. The potential for water damage, which is both time consuming and often expensive to fix, is what determines whether or not a plumbing problem is an emergency. Here are some other things that need to be fixed right away.

  • Pipe Ruptures: A pipe rupture is essentially a colossal leak, spilling gallons of water into the surrounding area. You can often identify this kind of problem by the water that’s welling up from under your floor, leaking from your ceiling, or possibly seeping through your wall. If you notice a large quantity of water welling up from any place that it shouldn’t be, that’s probably a pipe rupture. Turn off your water and call for repairs immediately.
  • Overflowing Toilet/Tub/Sink: If you have a seriously entrenched clog and no amount of plunging has fixed it, you have a plumbing emergency on your hands. Turn off your water and call for emergency plumbing services. The clog is probably going to require some more serious effort to remove.
  • Runaway Faucets: Every once in a while, a faucet may decide to start running and never turn off. Aside from being a waste of water, this has the potential to develop in a worse problem down the line. If you have a faucet that won’t turn off, call for emergency plumbing services right away. We’ll be able to stop the flow and prevent any further issues from cropping up.

No matter what kind of plumbing emergency you have, our expert plumbers are here for you. Just give us a call, no matter when it is, and we’ll save your home from as much damage as possible.
