Emergency Plumber, Birmingham

Offering our emergency plumber services in Birmingham, Stourbridge, Dudley, Wolverhampton, and all surrounding areas.

Everybody knows that to be able to keep a household running smoothly, being able to provide enough hot water to every shower is essential to ensuring everybody starts off their day right. There is often a small window of time in which at least 3 house members require a shower before they head off to work or school, and it is crucial that your boiler is running well to be able to make sure that the showers are ready to go. If you experience boiler breakdown, this will be a huge inconvenience to you and may require emergency assistance from one of our heating engineers who are qualified to fix your boiler. 


There may be some cases where certain plumbing issues pop up in your home that you feel that you might be able to fix yourself, however, a boiler breakdown is certainly classed as a plumbing emergency. In a plumbing emergency, it is imperative that you contact a Gas Safe registered plumber (like one of ours here at Bog Standard Plumbing) to assist you. You can contact us by calling 0330 113 2248 or sending an email to info@bogstandardplumbing.co.uk

How do I identify whether my plumbing issue is an emergency?

Plumbing covers a wide range of work, from bathroom installation through to major plumbing repairs. Some types of plumbing work can be planned, for example, if the issue is minor such as a weak toilet flusher. Similarly, if you are planning a bathroom refurbishment or installation, although this is a big job, as it is not urgent, it isn’t classed as an emergency - despite how excited you may be to get going with it!

Examples of plumbing emergencies include:

  • A water leak.
  • A burst pipe.
  • A boiler breakdown (for which you will need to ensure the engineer is Gas Safe registered).
  • A blocked or leaking toilet.

At Bog Standard Plumbing, we define plumbing emergencies as any big issue relating to the water in your home, which presents an immediate danger or damage to your property or your family.

If your plumbing problem is not an emergency, it doesn’t mean you will have to wait forever to see a plumber. It just means an appointment can be scheduled in advance that’s convenient for you both. If you’re not dealing with an emergency this works out better for you as you can minimise time off work and disruption to your week. If you live in Birmingham and think you require our emergency plumbing service, then please give us a call on 0330 113 2248 to speak to someone on our team today!

What happens when there's a plumbing emergency?

If you have contacted one of our team members and we have verbally confirmed that your problem is indeed an emergency and requires assistance as soon as possible, then we will make the appropriate arrangements to get our plumbers to visit your property and assist you. The first step for you to take is to ensure that you do not panic. It is often the case that people find emergency plumbing problems in their home and their first instinct is to try and fix it themselves. Although you may be tempted to do so, we strongly advise that you be patient and wait for one of our staff to see and treat the problem in a professional manner so as to limit the damage caused. It is highly likely that any interference or attempt to fix the problem may actually make it worse!
