Toronto Emergency Plumbing – How To Choose The Best

toronto emergency plumbing

The funny thing with our home plumbing is that we almost never pay any attention to it until something goes wrong.  A small leak here and there can be fixed with gaskets, Teflon tape, and many other types of sealant.  A minor drain clog most of us can unblock using a plunger or a manual snake tool.  But we all have our limits and some things are best left to the capable hands of professionals – people with the right training, skills and tools for the job.  Sooner or later a major plumbing system failure will cause us to call for Toronto emergency plumbing services.

When a plumbing emergency happens, it would be nice to know whom to call.  For people or a company you would expect to provide you with Toronto emergency plumbing services, there are certain characteristics common to the best providers.  The following are some of them:

  1. It is advantageous to work with emergency plumbers who bills on a fixed price basis.  In an emergency, the last thing you need is a worker or a company who is tempted to work longer hours just to pad the final bill.  Fixed pricing encourages fast work completions.  It is also an advantage if the plumber or plumbing services company clearly states the fixed nature of their pricing on their quotation.
  2. The weakness of fixed pricing is to do sloppy work just to complete the job in the shortest possible time.  That is why you need a company or worker who provides clear work guarantees on all plumbing repair work, and the guarantee should be in writing.
  3. Having a plumbing emergency is stressful, so you need to be dealing with courteous, helpful, and friendly dispatchers.  A rude or tactless work dispatcher will cause you to lose your ability to provide clear and concise information about your emergency.  The support staff is often as important as the emergency plumbing team.
  4. The plumber or emergency plumbing service company should either be a local one or at the very least have a local presence.  This makes it easier for them to respond and for you to coordinate with them.  Local presence also cuts down response time.
  5. The plumbers who will do the work need to have proper education, skills and certifications.  A few years of experience also helps.  Plumbing companies should be able to show the availability of proper licenses, a good track record in the local community, and membership in professional organizations such as the Plumber’s Residential Council Ontario.
  6. Good emergency plumbing service companies will have no problems providing work references, preferably local, who will attest to the quality of their work.
  7. The company needs to have the proper equipment, tools and even spares to get the job done fast.  There is absolutely no use in calling, and paying for emergency plumbing repair services if the truck turns up without any spares on board.  They also need to be on call 24/7.

Armed with the name and contact details of a good emergency plumber, you can sleep soundly knowing you can get plumbing assistance whenever you need it.
