Find a 24 hour plumber before you have an emergency

As you’ll probably need a 24 hour plumber at some point, why not have a look around now to find a tradesman who can get to you quickly in an emergency.
Putting the legwork in before your property’s plumbing plays up- will help to ensure you can get help quickly and easily when you need it most.
Make sure your emergency plumber is really 24 hour
Although a lot of plumbers say that they offer a 24 hour service, in reality this isn’t always the case.
Make sure that your plumber really will answer the phone in the middle of the night and at weekends. Find out how long they take on average to make their home visits and ask how many tradesmen they have available outside of standard working hours.
Ask for information on prices In general, you’ll pay more for a plumber to visit you out of hours than you would if your issue could be resolved between nine and five.
When you call to speak to your chosen emergency plumber, make sure you ask about their pricing policy.
If they charge over the odds for their 24 hour call outs, it might well be worth going elsewhere.
If the plumber can’t give you any information about their pricing policy, this could also be a sign that you’re going to end up paying more than you should for your out of hours emergency.
Keep your emergency numbers somewhere safe
Once you’ve found an emergency plumber you’re happy with, it’s important to take note of their name and number and then keep the information somewhere safe. Although most plumbers now display their contact info online, if your home is seriously flooded there’s a chance your electrics will no longer work so you’ll need to go old school if you want to get help fast.
