Emergency Plumbing Service in Austin Metro

Plumbing emergencies can quickly lead to property damage and sanitation issues — making timely, quality service of the utmost importance.

Efficient has skilled emergency plumbers standing by 24/7 to help with your home or business needs anywhere in the Austin, TX metro area. You can expect a prompt return call from a licensed plumber who will ask you questions to determine the nature of the problem and then advise you on next steps, including anything you can safely do to prevent further damage before we arrive at your property.

Our team is experienced with and equipped to handle any repair. Here are some of the most common emergency plumbing issues we see:

Main Line Drain Stoppages

  • This is the most frequent call for an emergency plumber — and for good reason. Main line drain stoppages need to be addressed immediately, as there can be serious health consequences and possibly property damage due to sewage backup.
  • Often, you can relieve backup by opening the outside cleanout (if accessible). This will allow sewage to overflow into the yard. You may be able to wait for regular service hours if you do not use any drains.

Interior Water Line Leaks

  • These need to be addressed immediately, as they will only worsen if left unrepaired and will cause property damage.
  • Usually, the only option is to turn off the water at the meter. If you contact us for emergency plumbing service, we can provide instruction on how to do this before we arrive.

Water Heater Leaks

  • Many times, the leaking water heater is causing property damage — especially when located in the attic.
  • You may be able to shut the water off at the water heater or meter and shut off power to the water heater. We can help you do this over the phone before we arrive.

Yard Service Leaks

  • These only need to be addressed immediately if they are severe enough to significantly reduce the flow of water into the house and/or they are wasting huge amounts of water.
  • The only option is to turn off water until we arrive. If you contact us, we can walk you through how to do this.

  • Sending an experienced, licensed plumber to your home who has passed background and drug screening.
