Unclog DisposalWe often get calls from Lake Worth clients wanting to know the difference between routine plumbing services and emergency plumbing services. At General Plumbing, we wanted to shed some light on the different kinds of services that fall into either category in this article.

Routine Plumbing Services

If you have a plumbing concern that can wait to be addressed through routine maintenance, you might be looking at something like:

  • Water starting to drain more slowly down drains
  • Water not coming out of faucets with as much force as anticipated

In addition to these kinds of issues, there are preventive services that are also addressed during routine maintenance like wrapping pipes to insulate them during colder temperatures. during a routine check, our technicians also check for exposed pipes and signs of leaks, look for corrosion, test the water pressure, test drainage, and more.

Emergency Plumbing Services

Emergency plumbing services address issues that cannot wait for routine maintenance. Most of our emergency calls center around something going wrong with the sewer pipes, drains, grease traps, sinks, showers or toilets in a Lake Worth home. When this happens, it’s important to get quick and efficient service to address and correct the problem.

So if you need immediate attention concerning:

  • A leak
  • Service to a sewer line
  • Service to a water heater
  • Another pressing problem

The experienced plumbing professionals at General Plumbing can take care of your emergency plumbing needs.
