Emergency Plumbing FAQs

How Do You Know If Your Pipes Burst?
There are several warning signs of a burst pipe, including: a sudden drop in water pressure, water stains on walls or ceiling, standing water anywhere in your home, discolored or smelly water, strange sounds when you turn your taps, soft patches or puddles in your yard. If you suspect a burst pipe in your home, call us right away at (313) 608-4168
Why is My Toilet Overflowing?
Three things typically cause toilets to overflow: (1) A clogged or blocked drain, (2) A blocked vent pipe, or (3) A filler float that is set too high. If your toilet is overflowing, you can shut off the water supply by turning the football-shaped knob next to the toilet. Then, you can try to see if a clog is causing the issue by using a plunger. If you can’t stop the toilet from overflowing or clear the clog on your own, call MotorCity Plumbing at (313) 608-4168
How Can I Winterize My Pipes?
Start by shutting off the main water valve and turning off the water pump and water heater. Next, open all drain valves and taps. From there, use air compressors to blow excess water out of your pipes. Finally, open the drain valve in your hot water tank and allow it to discharge until empty. If this sounds like a lot of work or you aren’t’ confident, allow our team to winterize your pipes for you.
What Does it Mean if I Have No Water at All?
You are most likely experiencing a broken water line. The culprit is probably a pipe that’s been compromised by a tree root, which is causing it to leak and collapse. If your water lines have been damaged, you could be without running water in much or all of your home.
