If there's a water leak, repairing faucets, fixtures and pipes can be quite urgent - and may require an Phillipsburg plumber's immediate attention. If you discover a leak, it is best to shut the water while waiting for an Phillipsburg plumber to arrive, to prevent further water damage. The quickest way to stop water leaking from the pipes is to shut off the water supply from the main valve, then go to the lowest point in the house and open a faucet. Gravity will force the remaining water to drain out the faucet, minimizing the water that can escape through the leak.
Hot Hints for Finding a Plumber
- Asking for recommendations from family and friends is always a good first port of call.
- Check out one of the internet directories on-line - you can search for Phillipsburg plumbers close to you and the better guides give the plumbers the space to provide details of their experience and specialist skills. Remember to mention the directory when you call - some have arrangements where the plumbers offer a discount.
- Look in your local parish magazine. Often the plumbers who advertise there live close by - in an emergency someone who is just down the road may well be quicker, cheaper and, more importantly, willing to turn out.
- Try your local paper. Some plumbers will advertise in the classified ads all year round, others will appear only when they are not busy - increasing your chance of finding someone who says "yes".
- Ring your local letting agent - letting agents usually have a team of tradesmen and women who are set up to respond quickly to problems faced by tenants of the agent. Their plumber may be willing to help you.
- Call your plumbing supply shop - the staff get to know the regulars really well and are likely to be able to suggest someone who is not only good but who is available to take on your job.
- Plan in advance, every time, a friend has plumbing work done ask them who did it and if they were any good. Keep details of the recommended plumbers. Then, when the leak or blockage occurs you know who to 'phone straight away.
