A plumbing emergency can be a property owners’ worst fear.

What to Do in a Plumbing Emergency
Upon discovering a plumbing emergency, your mind will often be racing and it can be hard to know what to do next. However, your next steps are crucial to getting the help you need and diminishing the impact to your home or business.
Perhaps the most important step is to remain calm and turn off your water main. Make sure everyone around you is safe, especially if your leak or flood is happening near sources of electricity. If safe to do so, try to identify where the emergency is occurring and turn off the water. You may be able to ease the damage to your property by turning off the water while help is on the way. Call Nu Flow St. Louis and we will dispatch a technician to your location right away.
Emergency Plumbing Repairs
After assessing your plumbing emergency, your experienced Nu Flow technician will get to work right away fixing the root of the problem. We use a wide range of services to clean up any resulting mess and fix your pipes efficiently.
Oftentimes plumbing emergencies are caused by an obstruction. We offer drain cleaning services to clear out food waste, sediment or scale buildup, and tree roots that have invaded your plumbing. A simple drain cabling service can break apart most clogs, but hydro jetting uses a high-powered stream of water to destroy even the most stubborn tree roots and mineral deposits.
Trenchless Pipe Lining & Repair Techniques
Some kind of replacement may also be necessary to fully repair your pipes. Nu Flow St. Louis is known for offering some of the most efficient and advanced trenchless repairs in the area. Our minimally-invasive techniques use epoxy resin to fill in cracks or others areas of damage and we can also use a flexible sleeve of material to reline the inside of your pipe.
In severe cases, pipe replacement is also possible without digging a trench. Our pipe bursting technology works by destroying the existing pipe and replacing it with a new pipe in one motion. Without digging a trench on your property, Nu Flow is able to save you time and money on your emergency repairs.
No one wants to deal with a plumbing emergency, but most people will encounter one sooner or later. Your quick response can save you money on repairs and keep you and your loved ones safe. Allow Nu Flow to take care of the repairs and you can feel confident that your epoxy-lined pipe will last for years to come. Keep our phone number nearby and don’t hesitate to contact us in a plumbing emergency, or if you’d like to schedule preventive maintenance.
