Plumbing problems can happen at any time of day or night. When these problems do occur, such as leaks or burst pipes, they can result in serious water damage to your home if not treated promptly. If a plumbing crisis does occur, the first step is for you to take preventive measures, such as turning off the water main to prevent further leaking or flooding. Then you will want to call Roseville Plumbing Doctor for emergency plumbing services.

Plumbing Emergency Tips for Homeowners
In event of a plumbing emergency, there are some steps you can take to alleviate the problem before our Plumbing Doctor come to fix it.
Leaks and Burst Pipes: You should always know where the water valves to your home or business are located. If you are unable to close the valve for the individual pipe which is leaking, then shut off the main valve.
Water Heaters: If your water heater is leaking, you will need to shut off the line which brings cold water into the heater. This line is usually located right above the water heater. If you cannot shut off this valve, then turn off the main water valve to your home. You will then want to turn off the gas or electricity for the water heater. For gas, the shut-off valve usually has a red handle which is rotated 90 degrees to turn it off. For electric water heaters, shut off the power in the circuit breaker panel.
If your water is producing incredibly hot water, then it has probably overheated. In these cases, do not shut off the cold water. Instead, just turn off the gas/electricity and open your faucets to let the hot water drain out. Then call us to check your thermostat.
Frozen Pipes: Be cautious about trying to thaw frozen pipes yourself. If the pipe has cracked, then thawing could result in flooding. If you use a torch or other concentrated heat source to thaw the pipe, it could create a heat spot and make the pipe burst.
Clogs: For clogged toilets and drains, a plunger is always the best DIY first-response. Do not dump chemicals down the toilet or drain. If the drain is completely clogged, then these chemicals will just sit on top of the clog.
