A clogged toilet in the middle of the night can send you scrambling for a plumber in Seattle, WA. But is that really considered a plumbing emergency? At Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing, our staff and techs are emergency plumbing pros with years of experience. Our dispatchers will listen to the details of your problem and, if necessary, send one of our trained technicians to your home or business right away. 

Whether you need pipe repair or sewer repair in Seattle, WA, or even a new hot water heater, we've got the skills and the know-how to get the job done right the first time.

While some plumbing issues may be aggravating and inconvenient, we define a true plumbing emergency as a condition in which a pipe has burst and there is water flooding your home or office. In these cases, our 24/7 emergency service will arrive quickly, assess the problem, and get on with the business of water or sewer line repair in Seattle, WA. To enable us to focus on the problem as soon as we arrive, you may be instructed to turn off the water and/or begin soaking up flooding with towels while awaiting our arrival.

Plumbing emergencies fall into three categories:

  • Water heater leak
  • Sewer line rupture
  • Burst or leaking pipes

A water heater leak can be messy, inconvenient, and even result in expensive repair of water damage. When there is water on the floor, you don't have to wait until business hours to reach out for help. Our services are available around the clock to handle water heater leaks sooner rather than later.

Sewer line ruptures are not only a problem indoors, but they can also create smelly, swampy spots around the exterior of your property as well. If you suspect your sewer line is broken, we offer sewer repair services in Seattle, WA 24 hours a day seven days a week. Our camera inspection system can identify the exact location and nature of the break with no digging. Once the inspection is complete, our techs can determine if a trenchless repair is an option. If the issue is outside the capabilities of trenchless, our second-to-none excavation services in Seattle, WA will be used to access and replace the pipe.

A burst or leaking pipe can be a real nightmare for any home or business owner. In addition to the cost of the plumbing repair, the cleanup and restoration of your home or office can be an additional unexpected expense. When you find water on your floor, turn off the water and call for immediate emergency plumbing services. Day, night, weekend, or holiday, we're here to help when your plumbing goes wrong.


Plumbing emergencies can be a real headache, but the pros at Jim Dandy Sewer & Plumbing have the experience and knowledge to handle emergencies, even those that involve sewer line replacement in Seattle, WA. Contact us for any type of plumbing emergency.
