Facing a Plumbing Emergency?
Plumbing emergencies can happen when we least expect them to. Since plumbing systems operate on high levels of pressure, certain components within taps, toilets, and geysers can wear over time, to a point where they can cause a leak or burst. When facing a plumbing emergency, you need plumbers who are responsive and qualified to deal with your problem. Alpha Plumbing is your first choice when you need emergency plumbing services in the greater Johannesburg area. We are available around the clock, ensuring that you can count on us when things go sideways.
Dealing with a Faulty Geyser
Geysers are at the heart of any home plumbing system. They are considered high-pressure containers and should be handled as such. The purpose of a geyser is to store and heat water for your household supply. They are also commonly located within the ceiling to optimise the available space within the bathroom. Therefore, it can be catastrophic when a geyser bursts, no matter the time of day.
We offer geyser repairs and installations to ensure that you can call on us when your geyser is faulty or needs replacing. Our plumbers are experienced and certified to guarantee quality repairs and installations for you. We also utilise approved components when fixing geysers to give you the peace of mind that the problematic components are replaced with quality spares. We can also assist you with leaks within your plumbing system, which can cause a wide variety of affiliated problems when not addressed by a qualified professional.
Dealing with a Leaking Tap, Toilet, or Pipe
Leaks within a plumbing system can have drastic effects on various elements of the household, which could also lead to plumbing emergencies when ignored. The first step of dealing with any leak is to detect the source of the leak. Leaking taps and toilets are easy to recognise, as you will hear an unmistakeable dripping noise from the tap or toilet. Leaking pipes are a bit more tricky. However, water build-up in the ceiling, floor, or wall can be easily noticeable. Professional leak detection can pinpoint the location of the leak within the plumbing system, to be fixed accordingly.
Leaking taps and toilets might not seem like an immediate plumbing emergency but can cause similar problems when not addressed as soon as possible. Such leaks are commonly caused by faulty interior components such as valves and washers that have deteriorated over time because of mineral deposit build-up. By getting a professional plumber to deal with such a leak, you can avoid a sudden spike in monthly utility bills, mildew growth, and unwanted water puddles on the floor.
