Which Situations Require Emergency Plumbing Repair?
Water leaks can cause extensive damage to a home or business if not taken care of quickly. Even small leaks can lead to large repair bills and major structural problems. Emergency plumbing services are necessary because resolving the leak will minimize further water damage.
When sewer lines back up, the sewage sits at a backup point, which poses serious health risks and prevents you from using the facilities or running water, which is an inconvenience.
Low Water Pressure
Low water pressure can be a sign of a major problem with your plumbing system. It may indicate a leak, a blockage, or another issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
Low water pressure can interfere with everyday tasks and can also lead to costly repairs if left unchecked. For this reason, it is considered an emergency plumbing situation and should be dealt with quickly by a professional plumber.
If you have a burst pipe, you will not be able to use your home’s plumbing until you have it fixed. In addition, it is crucial to minimize damage by shutting off water to the entire house.
Most homeowners experience a clogged drain now and again. While certain clogs are not always an emergency, there are times when they can become one: for example, if the main sewer line from your home is clogged and water is backing up in the showers, tub, and toilets.

Don’t Ignore These Signs That Say You Need Water Heater Repair
It’s not uncommon for homeowners to neglect their water heaters; after all, it’s out of sight and out of mind until something goes wrong. However, it doesn’t have to be a full system failure that gets your attention. If you know what to look for, you can pinpoint heater problems and fix them before they develop into situations requiring water heater replacement.
Here are the most common signs that say your water heater is failing and that it’s best to call for repair now before the problem gets worse:
- Water is leaking from the tank.
- Your water heater is over 15 years old and past its prime.
- You run out of hot water more quickly than before.
- You get inconsistent water temperatures from day to day.
- You notice discolored water coming out of the faucets.
- You have low water pressure.
- Your water heater makes strange noises like rumbling, banging, or gurgling.
These are just a few of the signs that say your water heater is in trouble. Call KC’s 23 ½ Hour Plumbing & Air Conditioning for an inspection if your water heater starts acting up.

Benefits of Professional Drain Cleaning
The adage “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is just as relevant with your plumbing system as anything else. The drains in your Palm Desert home are part of a complex circulatory system that is prone to various problems which can cause your water to slow to a crawl or stop altogether. Instead of reaching for a plunger or store-bought drain cleaner, check out these reasons for hiring a professional, and then contact KC’s 23 ½ Hour Plumbing & Drain Cleaning.
Keeps Drains Free Flowing
Professional drain cleaning thoroughly cleans out the muck and crud stuck to the walls of your pipes, leaving them in like-new condition. When your drains are this clean, they flow freely, and you have less risk of significant clogs.
If you’ve ever noticed a foul odor coming from your drains, it’s because the food and other debris that’s stuck in the pipes begins rotting over time. Chemical drain cleaners often fail to solve this problem, which is why hiring a pro for thorough drain cleaning is the answer to a fresher-smelling home.
While drain snakes and chemical cleaners are convenient, they aren’t the best solution for removing clogs or keeping your drains clean. Drain cleaners often use harsh chemicals that can damage certain kinds of plumbing. When you have a professional clean your drains, they use methods that are 100% safe and effective regardless of what your pipes are made from.
