Leaking pipe repairs in Sydney

Leaking pipes can occur both indoors and outdoors. Indoor leaks are generally quite easy to locate and fix, however external underground water leaks can be hidden for weeks, resulting in a ridiculously high water bill before they are identified and fixed.

Outdoor drain repairs: At The Pied Plumber, we specialise in locating and repairing underground water leaks in Sydney using our high-tech electronic pipe locating equipment. With our locating equipment, we can quickly and efficiently find the position of your leaking pipes and either replace them or use drain patching, where we repair the crack, but don’t replace the pipe.

Water claim forms: Since we are licensed plumbers in Sydney, when we have located and repaired the cause of your water leak, we can issue you with a water claim form. This will help you to contest the high water bill issued by the council, as it was due to a concealed leak.

Drain repairs in Sydney

Our family plumbers are frequently called out because of our specialist CCTV inspections, which result in fast and efficient drain repairs in Sydney. There are a variety of different causes of blocked drains inside properties, all of which can be easily located, identified and repaired by our experienced plumbers.

Blocked toilets: We have seen toy cars, cuddly toys, children’s reading books and even shoes, all resulting in a blocked toilet. Other causes include baby wipes, personal wipes, disposable nappies, feminine hygiene products and even grease from food items. We'll unblock it fast!

Blocked kitchen drains: One of the biggest causes of blocked kitchen drains is solidified oil, grease and food debris that has been disposed of down the sink, instead of in the correct waste receptacle. We'll take the time to train you through some maintenance methods of preventing future blockages.

Blocked laundry drains: Fluff and face tissues can easily block laundry drains, however both of these problems are usually caught by the filter in your washing machine, so they don’t occur very often.

Blocked bathroom drains: The main culprit in bathrooms is hair that blocks the shower and bath drains, and to a lesser extent, the vanity drain. Unblocking these can have their difficulties. These can often cause emergency scenarios should flooding occur to surround carpets outside your bathroom.

Fortunately, you're not alone. This is an extremely common problem in Sydney households. Most of the time this is either due to hot water cylinder rust or cast-iron pipe supply issues. (if in older properties)

Open your taps independently to check whether the discolouration occurrence is on both hot and cold sides. If your issue is predominantly from the hot side - your hot water heater is asking for a check-up.

Finding this on both sides? It's a likely supply issue.

Discolouration can range from a slight cloudy white tinge to black, brown and orange water supplies. To check, simply fill a clear cup sample and focus notibly on the bottom for sedimentation.

On occasion, even a Sydney Water street mains break can affect surrounding property supply so in the meantime, continue using your plumbing and after a day or two - if the problem persists, have this looked over.

Otherwise, give us a call! We would be more than happy to help. 1300 13 80 80

Short answer; check your cleaner packaging before use. Anything bleach based when used inside your cistern can chemically deteriorate internal rubbers and valve parts. If your cistern cleaner is bright blue in particular - this voids most manufacture warranties of cistern components.

Quick tip from the boss: If you're one to use cleaners inside the toilet rim; look into dissolvable stick-on products rather than hanging manifolds. You'd be doing yourself a huge favour as you'd be surprised how many call outs Plumbers obtain from foreign objects caught down the dunny when flushed. Some can involve fairly significant works to retrieve.

Just remember - bleach for the pan, not your cistern!

Always happy for a chat if you're experiencing any issues.
