Late Night Pipe Burst Causes Flooding

Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and needed to go to the bathroom, only to find out that the toilet it broken and overflowing? Using a plunger doesn’t help, and you need emergency help! You spend so much time frantically looking for a plumber that is willing to come to your house at 2 in the morning, but none will answer. This is when you need to find someone who is a 24 hr emergency plumber in NJ. 24 hour plumbers are rare, let me tell you! I know because I have had this exact emergency.

The toilet had broken, the floor was being flooded by poor plumbing in the house. I stood there in disbelief watching the water flow into the floor and there was nothing that I could do to stop it. I called every plumber that I saw online and none if the were 24 hour plumbers. I just knew that the floor and everything else was going to be ruined. I ran and turned the water switch off to shut off the house’s water and went back to calling numbers. I struck gold when I called one and they said they could be right over. It wasn’t no time and they were pulling into my driveway.

The crew was efficient and asked about the problem. I explained to them that I had gotten up, used the bathroom, and then the toilet started to overflow. They seemed to have two ideas on what was wrong. Either the toilet was having a drain issues or a pipe burst to the toilet. It ended up being the pipe busting. No idea what causes that to happen, but they told me that sometimes it just pops and breaks for no real reason but it could have been the age of the pipe. It was replaced really fast and ended up working perfectly fine after that.

I have no idea what I would have done without the 24 hour service that the plumbers provided. I couldn’t imagine going a day at least without knowing what was wrong with my plumbing, so I am grateful that they exist!
