Do I Need to Call a Local Plumber in Cincinnati?
We prepare for all kinds of contingencies in life, but few people are prepared for that moment when a plumbing emergency occurs. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine what is an emergency versus what plumbing problems can wait for normal business hours.
What is Considered a Plumbing Emergency?
We’ve been in business since 1910, and we’ve seen a lot of the same plumbing issues come up again and again. Some of the most frequent emergency repair calls we get are because of:
Major Flooding: Whether the flooding is the result of a water heater, sewer backup or a clogged toilet, any of these issues can result in an immediate water emergency requiring prompt service.
Interior Water Leaks: Pipes, water heaters, water mains, sewers, or any number of plumbing-related areas of your home can leak for weeks or months before you realize it. Plumbing leaks may happen visibly or be hidden within your home, signaling deeper issues. When you have a leak inside your home, it’s best to call an emergency plumber.
Clogged Drains or Toilets: Are you using the plunger more often than usual? Is that kitchen or bathroom drain in your home backing up again? There may be blockage further down your plumbing system that you may not be able to reach, and trying to reach it may force the blockage even deeper down the pipes.
Smell of Gas: One of the most dangerous plumbing emergencies a homeowner can face is a gas leak. Evacuate your home immediately if you smell gas, and call an emergency plumber right away. After notifying your utility company, your plumber will rush over to assess the situation. Anything related to gas should be handled by a licensed professional.
Frozen Pipes: When temperatures dip, the water in pipes that are on or near the outside of your home is more likely to freeze. This causes your pipes to expand and eventually burst. Whether you are concerned about your pipes freezing or they’ve already frozen, call us for emergency plumbing repairs.
Wet Yard: Are you noticing small wet spots scattered throughout your yard? If so, this indicates that your main water supply line is probably leaking onto your lawn. A foul smell indicates a leak in your sewer line. An emergency plumber call can immediately assess the severity of a leak and determine whether major repairs or excavation is required.
No Hot Water: A cold shower is often the result of an issue with your hot water heater. First, check your breaker box to ensure there is electricity going to your electric heater. For gas water heaters, ensure the pilot light is on. Call a professional plumber if you hear rattling noises or the water heater is receiving a power source.

"Ernie & Mike did a superb job on my new furnace and A/C installation. Despite having more than a day’s work to do, they came in and stayed until the job was done. They were organized, efficient, and protected the rest of the house well. Got both furnace and A/C installed the same day. Ernie was courteous, informative, and clearly knew his job better than anyone I’ve encountered before. The units look so good guests now get The Tour of our new system. Apollo is clearly not a fly-by-night company. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new furnace and/or A/C."

"I called Apollo because of a water leak I thought I had in our upstairs shower going into the kitchen. Robbie came and assured me everything was fine & looked at all the other plumbing. He ended up changing a few pipes for our washer & clearing a drain. He was very nice & knowledgeable with all my questions. I ended up signing up for the care plan & was very happy with my service."

"The team at Apollo exceeded my expectations. As a business owner, my attention to the details and commitment to providing excellent service is high. From the sales rep. to the installation team, everyone’s performance was outstanding. For example, the installation team went to great lengths to protect our floors, placing floor runners and across the wood floors and up the stairs. They even were spot washing walls upon their departure. I highly recommend this company."

"We scheduled an estimate AND a tune-up. We knew something was wrong with our furnace, but hoped we could make it through the rest of the season. Upon telling Bill what our furnace was doing, he warned us immediately what the possible outcome was going to be; a cracked heat exchanger. He watched the flames roll backward, tested carbon monoxide levels, which were so high they meter’s last reading was 5,600 before saying “high”. He immediately shut it down, tagged it, and explained that with levels that high and children in our home he wanted off right away. He continued his inspection and showed us via a camera that not only was it cracked in multiple places, but had holes all over it. He gave us a few options for repairing it; his knowledge as well as genuine concern was beneficial and refreshing. Luckily we also scheduled an estimator, Micah, to come too and we were able to get costs between repairing and replacing (with several options). We decided to replace with a much higher efficiency furnace and one sized properly to our home. Hands down, not only did they both provide us great service and knowledge, but without sounding dramatic, they may have saved our lives. This was our first time calling Apollo, but it won’t be our last."

"Apollo is an excellent company. I always receive great service. Alex A. was professional and friendly. He kept me informed during the process of checking my furnace and heat pump to make sure they were working properly. The company makes sure you are notified who is coming and when they are on the way. All my interactions with the company have been wonderful."
