Having something go wrong with your home or business plumbing can prove to be an extremely stressful situation and, as such, it is probably not the best time to be making decisions that could end up costing you a lot of money. For this reason it is recommended that you already have a plumber in mind before anything bad happens, that way you can be much more relaxed in the knowledge that you already know the person who is coming out, already know what skills and experience they possess and likely what sort of fee they will be charging. If you have not sorted out a plumber prior to an emergency occuring you leave yourself open to being taken advantage of by someone who sees a quick money in your distress, of course not all plumbers are like that and you may very well land lucky and find a good one first time around, but the risk is there.

I would recommend that you do some research well ahead of time so that you can locate an emergency plumber whom you feel you could trust should an emergency situation present itself. You should not feel uncomfortable or guilty about calling or emailing a plumber to ask questions if you do not have any immediate work, any plumber with any sort of business sense will have no problem in answering your queries in the hope of securing future long term business.

Once you have made contact with the plumber and feel satisfied with the responses to your queries you will be able to rest easy knowing that if something did come up you will have somebody on hand who you can call without fear of unexpectedly high bills or poor workmanship. Finding the right plumber to initially contact is the first issue you will be faced with, you may find it helpful to ask around your circle of friends and family for recommendations. You can always pick up the phone book and start calling round a few companies until you find one you are happy with. More and more people are turning to the internet to find local tradesman and plumbers are no exception, by accessing Google and searching for a plumber in your area (i.e. emergency plumber Durham) you will be giving a number of different companies to try. Obviously it is well within your interests to properly investigate any plumber you find on the internet and be sold purely on the strength of a website. 

Always ensure that the plumber you are about to select has the right amount of experience and appropriate professional accredidations before enlisting them to do any work.
