Why Your Regular Plumber Should Offer 24/7 Service


Imagine you have a minor, non-emergency plumbing issue. Or perhaps you don’t need to imagine. Maybe it’s happening right now! Perhaps a toilet is clogged, but it’s not your only one. Perhaps your drains are slow, but they’re not totally stopped up. You can make a regularly scheduled appointment for a convenient time. 

Here’s the thing: even though you don’t need emergency plumbing services right this minute, we strongly recommend that you choose a plumber who does offer those services, too. This might not seem necessary, but it’s definitely the sensible approach. Here’s why you should always choose a plumber who offers 24/7 service, even if you don’t need an emergency plumber in Boston this time.

When Time Is of the Essence

When a plumbing emergency does occur, this is often the sort of situation that can get much worse very quickly if people panic or don’t address it right away. What’s the best way to avoid panicking in an emergency? To already have a plan in place for what you’ll do when emergencies happen.

In these moments, it will be easiest to reach out to your regular plumber. You already know who to contact and that they’ll be available even if it’s late at night or on a holiday weekend. You can leave the phone number for your household members, dog walker, or housesitter. Even when you’re not home, emergencies will be dealt with properly and promptly and serious water damage to your home will be avoided.


As much as it’s good when you’re familiar with your plumber and know who to call when something goes wrong, it’s also a huge benefit to have a plumber who is familiar with your home’s plumbing system. When they’ve been to your home before and already have a sense of the layout and knowledge of any underlying concerns or information about your plumbing, they’ll be able to address an emergency more efficiently.

Your plumber will also be able to assess ongoing situations and make long-term recommendations that they can follow up on with you in the future. This can be about anything from how long your water heater might last to how to reduce water waste in your home. When you have a lasting partnership with your plumber, you can trust that they’ll be there no matter what comes up.

Other Qualities to Look for in a Plumber

Besides offering 24/7 emergency service, what should you look for when assessing potential plumbers? We recommend that you choose a company that has been around for a long time. We’ve been in business since 1986, so you know we’ll be around for the long haul. Community involvement is another good sign, such as the business being family-owned.

Finally, you should feel comfortable communicating with your plumber and everyone on staff at the company. Any questions you have are perfectly reasonable, and it’s important for your plumber to take the time to give you the information you need. If you do have questions about your plumbing, don’t hesitate to contact us.
