How can an emergency plumber assist me with problems in the kitchen?

Finding that your kitchen sink has become blocked up is a common problem which requires the assistance of an emergency plumber. Kitchen sinks often get clogged up with leftover food and waste products from meal preparation.

A blocked sink can cause the water in a sink to fill but not escape. This is especially a problem if your kitchen is being used for a dinner party or important function where guests are going to produce a large amount of washing up and it will not look very appetising to leave unwashed crockery piled up for the evening.

Calling an emergency plumber saves you the time and inconvenience of attending to a blocked sink with fast results. Calling an experienced and fully trained plumber will help you get the problem solved so that you can enjoy the rest of your evening in peace, not wrestling with your plumbing.

Can I fix a blocked drain using DIY?

There are many DIY tutorials online to provide information about how to unblock a sink and anyone who is confident in their DIY plumbing abilities can attempt to fix the problem without too much trouble.

Unfortunately most households do not possess the correct tools to undertake the job correctly. Using the wrong tools to try to fix a plumbing problem may result in causing damage to the fittings and making the problem worse. Many DIY plumbing jobs result in rounding of nuts and incorrectly replaced parts.

One of the major disadvantages with undertaking your own sink blockage repairs is that plumbing tools are expensive. It may seem as though you are saving money by completing a kitchen plumbing repair by yourself, but you will need to spend a significant amount of time researching the correct plumbing tools required, then you need to visit a local DIY store to collect the items and discuss alternatives with the store staff.

If you have no previous experience of plumbing equipment, spare parts or tools, you could find this a daunting and time consuming process which includes purchasing plumbing equipment at consumer prices and not at the reduced trade price that professional plumbers can source the same products.

What are the benefits of calling out an emergency plumber?

When you call out an emergency plumber who has been fully trained and has many years of experience with kitchen plumbing problems, they will be able to identify the problem quickly and attend to it with little fuss.

You can be confident that a professional plumber will get the job done correctly and have all the required tools and spare parts required to put your plumbing back into working condition.

A plumbing engineer may also spot a solution to your blockage such as fixing the routing of the pipes which will improve your plumbing system and reduce the risk of future blockages.

Be sure to contact your plumbing engineer as soon as you experience a problem as leaving your blocked drains unattended for too long can produce unwelcome results and you may find water leaking all over the kitchen floor.

In your article, you stated that a blocked sink can cause the water in a sink to fill but not escape and this is especially a problem if your kitchen is being used for a dinner party or important function where guests are going to produce a large amount of washing up and it will not look very appetizing to leave unwashed crockery piled up for the evening. My wife called me at work this morning because the drains in our house were backing up and overflowing. I wonder what types of tools most plumbers would use in this situation.
