What to Do During a Plumbing Emergency
By definition, a plumbing emergency is something that’s not anticipated. This is why anything unexpected that’s plumbing-related should be reason enough to call a plumber in Murrieta, CA, from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. We also want to give you some tips about other steps you should take during a plumbing emergency.
Turn Off the Closest Water Source
Emergency plumbing situations typically involve an uncontrolled release of water from pipes, fixtures, or water-using appliances like water heaters. If this is the type of emergency you have, turn off the nearest water source. If it’s not accessible, shut off your home’s main water valve.
Shut Off Your Water Heater
With a major emergency situation, a lot of things in your plumbing system can be affected, including some things that can be bad for your water heater. This is why we recommend turning off your water heater if other things are going on with your pipes, water pressure, and other key plumbing system components. Additionally, turn the gas off, too, if you have a gas-fueled water heater.
We suggest doing this to move water away from your home. This is because water will still be in your pipes and fixtures even when the water is turned off. With drains that need to be opened up because of a clog, try a gentle method like using a plunger – but don’t be too forceful. Also, avoid using chemical products since they often do more harm than good and require more extensive plumbing services.
Take Care of Small Issues ASAP
It’s just as important to take care of small plumbing repairs and issues as soon as you notice them. What this does is reduce your risk of experiencing major plumbing emergencies in the first place.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
