When is it an Emergency?
Plumbing Emergency #1: Gas Leak

- Do not use any electrical devices (cell phones, light
- Do not start a vehicle if it is on the property.
- Call your gas company.
- Call Capps Plumbing & Sewer
switches, garage door openers, etc.) until you are at a safe distance from the property.
Plumbing Emergency #2: No Water
No running water is a safety concern since you cannot use the facilities and attend to them as soon as possible.

Frozen pipes or spigots can lead to flooding or no water. A plumber must address your frozen pipes immediately.
Plumbing Emergency #4: Risk of Flooding
Flooding due to a failed sump pump, burst pipe, sewer back up, or water shut off valve failure is all examples of plumbing emergencies. Flooding can cause significant damage to structures and is a safety concern that a plumber should address as soon as possible.
