Emergency Service for Leaks & Burst Pipes

Burst pipes can be catastrophic, causing untold damage to flooring, furnishings and belongings. It doesn’t take long for standing water to cause mold growth that puts your family at risk for respiratory issues, throat irritation, skin irritation and more. Specializing in emergency repairs for leaks and burst pipes, the Elek SuperSTARS are available 24/7 at fair prices that are free of overtime charges for our Elek Service Maintenance Agreement customers.

Types of Household Leaks

Small drips may not require emergency service, but major basement leaks, laundry room flooding or ruptured pipes need immediate attention.

After turning off water at the main valve, call Elek’s 24-hour team before beginning the cleanup process. Elek SuperSTARS are experts at diagnosing and repairing these common leaks and emergencies:

  • Leaky toilet
  • Leaky bathtub or shower
  • Bathroom pipe burst
  • Leaky kitchen sink
  • Dripping faucet or shower
  • Water line repair
  • Water line replacement
  • Broken appliance seal
  • Frozen pipes
  • Flooded basement
  • Sump pump leak
  • Damaged sewer lines
  • Cracked water heater
  • Leaking boiler
  • Corroded pipes
  • Intruding tree roots

While an outdoor plumbing repair may seem less urgent than a leaky indoor fixture, sewer problems may be hazardous to your health. Damaged sewer lines have been known to pollute fresh water or contaminate the ground where children and pets play. If you suspect a sewer issue, call Elek Plumbing now: 610.432.7001.

Report an Emergency Leak or Burst Pipe

In some cases, leaks are undetectable, and even a small, hidden leak wastes hundreds of gallons of water per month. Elek Plumbing uses the industry’s latest equipment to locate and repair leaks hidden behind walls or buried underground. To avoid unseen water damage, monitor monthly water usage and call a plumber if you notice a spike in your bill, signs of mold, or musty odors.

Neglected plumbing systems are prone to pipe bursts, corrosion or water leaks. To reduce the chance of water damage, schedule annual maintenance for your pipes, water heater and fixtures. This allows our Lehigh Valley plumbing professionals to detect your plumbing problem before it becomes a catastrophe.
