Plumbing is a sensitive issue with some homeowners, in the case of any emergency plumbing problems, they usually want the issue deal with quickly with the least damage possible to the house. In some cases, however, this is unavoidable due to how the pipes are situated and exactly what the problem is with the plumbing. In the case of a plumbing emergency of that magnitude, an owner has a few options available to him or her.
1) Temporary Repair: Most plumbers tend to look at this as the best option for an emergency situation since it resolves the problem. However, depending on the severity of the problem as a whole, it might be costlier in the long run to temporarily repair the issue.
2) Replacement: In some cases, replacement might be a better option since it is a far better long-term solution. The short term costs may be quite expensive depending on how the pipes are situated within the walls and if any other renovation would need to be done after the replacement.
3) Permanent Repair: This can only be applied to issues that aren’t likely to crop up often (for example drain clogging or toilet overflow issues). For an issue to be permanently resolved, a fix must exist for the issue to deal with it once and for all. In a handful of instances, a permanent repair is not possible because of the nature of the problem.
