Here are some common issues The Pied Plumber can help you with

 

 

 

 

Blocked Internal Matraville Drains:

Common for most Matraville families. At some stage whether its children dropping off their toys or ‘that’ family member that arrives every Christmas leaving you in strife.

Blocked fixture drains are commonly found in kitchen sinks and even long-haired family members can lead to drain clogs and overflowing showers. The Pied Plumber is a leading Sydney plumbing company with over 20 years in the industry. Unblocking floor wastes near baths, quickly addressing kitchen drainage issues, repairing overflowing laundry tubs, and, in some cases, removing dried cement from shower drains left by your previous tradesman. We take the time necessary to properly resolve your drainage issue, with the goal of arming you with knowledge about prevention.

Let's face it, drains aren't always pretty, and unblocking that ensuite or main bathroom toilet without experience can cause more harm than good.

 

Shower concerns:  

From time to time, you may experience dreaded in wall concealed shower leaks through the nooks and crannies around taps and shower heads.   We are equipped with thermal imaging and can quickly conduct a pressure test on your shower outlet. Checking plumbing is certainly the best first step before forking out hundreds of dollars resealing a bath or shower assembly only to discover the problem is still there!

We also replace rusted shower heads with new multi-function shower heads and add customisable shower on-a-rail dispensers for certain unusual couples with large height disparities.

 

Blocked and Clogged External Matraville Drains:

On occasion and some more frequently than others; you may experience gurgling around drains usually within bathrooms and even areas of sewer overflow outside. It’s important to attend to these issues when they arise as these routine plumbing problems can be resolved quickly!

A blocked outside sewer service is usually caused by tree roots desperate to survive in frequent Sydney draughts. These main line choke issues are widespread in Sydney and the surrounding areas, whether you live in the Matraville, Watsons Bay, or Potts Point. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – We choose to use both high-end specialists drain clearing and CCTV inspection equipment to clean, detect, and locate precisely where the problem is so that your drainage waste water system can be fully unblocked.

This also extends to stormwater drains unable to cope under extensive rainfall. If your downpipes are backing up in and around pits and you’re experiencing overflowing strip drains – We'll take the time to get you back up and running quickly while also properly assessing your problem to prevent a recurrence.

 

Leaking and Burst Matraville Pipes:

Burst water pipes can occur anywhere on your property-most commonly near electrical cables and various other concealed locations-resulting in enormous water damage and a substantially high water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber near Matraville and we will work to replace burst pipes, fix floods, and have you back to normal fast.

 

Constant Gas Odour in Matraville:

We are professionally licenced and ensured gas fitting specialists. An sudden odour of gas odour can be detected anywhere near your appliances; These are all symptoms of a potential leak, such as areas around your gas heater, gas stove, BBQ, gas metre, or even catching a slight egg odour under your floor or home!

Gas leaks can be extremely dangerous to you and your family; you should contact us to determine your next course of action. We have the most up-to-date testing and tracing equipment to ensure that your kitchen and heating remain operational.

 

No Hot Water at your Matraville Property:

Not having hot water at your house is a common plumbing problem in Matraville – call the experts and fix it fast for your family! Hot water leaks can be simple to repair, but if you leave it too late, it could lead to a hot water unit failure. In some cases, a faulty hot water tempering device may result in insufficient temperatures around essential wash down fixtures such as showers and sinks. We can service, repair, and install new hot water systems. To ensure that all hot water components inside your property stand the test of time, we only use parts from your local plumbing Reece supplier.

No heat? When your Boiler is no longer heating at optimal levels, it is time to call in the experts to fix the problem fast. We do it all, without any hassle.

 

Leaking Matraville Taps:

Dripping taps can drive you and your family crazy! This common plumbing problem ranges from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to ‘that’ bathroom shower that keeps the family up at night. In all Sydney suburbs, worn and broken washers may result in increased quarterly water bills, which is why The Pied Plumber takes the time to repair and/or fix your leaky pipes, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we do it all.

 

Toilet trouble:

A leaking cistern can, in some cases, contribute to extensively high-water bills! You may even experience external toilet drips and leaks in and around the bowl or pan. If this is of concern, all toilets should by Australian Standard have taps / valves to isolate your toilet trouble.

Whether insignificant or otherwise, we are still plumbing near Matraville and are just a phone call away.

That is how committed our plumbing team is to you and your household 7 days a week.

Whether your toilet, shower, bath or sinks are leaking, blocked or broken, we treat all drain repairs like an emergency and our Matraville plumbers will be there ASAP to unblock, clean and clear your overflowing drain!

The first thing you can do if you have a blocked drain caused by tree roots and debris is to contact one of our experts. Our after-hours emergency plumbing service will assist you in understanding the most common causes of drain blockages. Once our team arrives at your location, we'll find and repair the blockage, as well as ensure that your drains are properly configured to avoid further blockages.

 

What To do In An After Hours Matraville Plumbing Emergency:

 

Don’t panic; help is only a call away. Emergency situations are always apparent; what is not always obvious is your safety! Stop for a few seconds to identify areas which may be of risk of flooding, check for electrical hazards and IF any water is present around your storage hot water service - disconnect the electrical heating system! Inside your electrical fuse box, hot water should be simply labelled "HWS", "HOT WATER" or "HW".

 

What do I do if my bathroom, kitchen, laundry or ensuite has a burst pipe?

 

  • Generally, politely requesting a pause would not resolve burst lines. Prior to our arrival, attempt to find your water metre and, if practicable; establish whether this is a cold or hot water leak so as to know what to isolate. Your water meter otherwise will eliminate both supplies.

 

  • If you are calling from a private property in the vicinity of Matraville: Your water meter is almost definitely in the front (facing the street), typically in direct line with your house hose tap. Ensure that your meter tap is turned clockwise and then open an outdoor hose tap to confirm that your water services are in fact ‘OFF’. This will also enable the remaining house supply water line to safely discharge elsewhere!

 

  • If your emergency is from a unit block in Matraville; You’ll usually find your unit isolation valve either under the kitchen sink or laundry tub. Regrettably, no fixed parameter exists for determining the final position of shared property isolation valves. As a result, The Pied Plumber strongly advises all unit owners to always be aware of the component's given position.

 

Thereby, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call our assistance:

 

Although we have wet vacs and cleaning supplies, we believe this to be part of our emergency response. Having old towels on hand during an emergency is important and will certainly reduce the severity of damage inside your house. Oftentimes, when a plumbing malfunction happens under a hand basin, shower, or sink; chipboard cabinets and shelves swell irreversibly. Never, in whatever circumstances, use hot air fans to alleviate the problem, as this will exacerbate the damage before we arrive. Allow us to save your plumbing system!

PLUMBING TROUBLESHOOTing

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.

Here at The Pied Plumber - We love resolving your issues. Some seemingly more urgent than others.
We'll arrive for a leaking tap and then get that question on the way out: "OHHH while you're here. We have this bathroom which we barely use that smells!"

While in these cases you may in fact have underlying plumbing issues - The most common here is that all your plumbing around the property will require regular use.
In areas where (for example) an ensuite bathroom is used every 6 months - what occurs in these cases is that the water levels in the traps around the sinks and floors slowly drop as they evaporate. This leads to water seal loss allowing odour to then travel into the area from the sewer service.
There is an easy fix!

Make sure you run water services in the room at least every few weeks whilst making sure that water always reaches the floor wastes. You may otherwise be a victim to poor plumbing design where these floor wastes may require manual top up.
Make sure the room is well ventilated and if the problem persists - We're a call away!

We know design! Call the expects if you're still stuck!

At The Pied Plumber, we understand that knowing how to lower your water bills in Sydney will go a long way to helping families manage their budgets in a tough climate.

Never fear! There are ways that you can reduce your water bills whether this be installing water efficient appliances and fixtures or by ensuring that leaks are isolated and fixed promptly. Not only will these actions help you to save money on your water bills, but by conserving water we can all help to save our our dams during drought seasons.

5 strategies for saving money on your water bills in Sydney

  1. Check your toilet for leaks: Add a few drops of food colouring into the cistern and wait for 30 minutes. If the cistern is leaking into the pan, you will see the coloured water in the bowl.
  2. Install a dual flush cistern: This can save you up to 5 litres of water every time you flush the toilet, which can add up to thousands of litres per year.
  3. Check fixture flow rates: Our family plumbers will check the flow rates of your shower heads, bath, vanity, kitchen and laundry taps and install water restrictors, which reduce the flow rates to save you money.
  4. Repair leaking taps: One or more dripping taps can add up to a lot of wasted water and higher than normal bills. So whether these are indoors or outdoors, the prompt repair of leaking taps is essential to conserving water and saving money on your water bills in Sydney.
  5. Hidden underground leaks: Often, the first time you realise that you have an insidious underground water leak is when you receive an abnormally high water bill. Leaks from underground mains water pipes however, can be difficult to locate, which is why our electronic pipe locating equipment comes in handy. Our family plumbers will quickly and efficiently locate the source of your underground water leak and repair the pipes, helping you to save money on your water bills in Sydney.

Lower your water bills with a water leak claim form

When you have a concealed water leak underground and have promptly acted to fix the problem, you can claim a credit for the additional water charges from the council. As licensed family plumbers in Sydney, we will issue you with a water leak claim form, which you submit to the council, once we have repaired your water leak. This helps to lower your water bill in Sydney following a hidden leak.

Whatever the scenario. Whether this be servicing a tap, toilet or even in the event of a dreaded burst pipe - Try not to panic.

Firstly, what service do you wish to isolate?

If it's your hot water: You'll find a control valve usually with a black, green or blue handle at the lower end of the storage heater.  Turn off clock wise to isolate.

If you require turning off the property at the meter or main control valve:

  • House owner: Usually these will be street facing around the front fence boundary. If obstructed and unobtainable, try and source the front hose tap and focus your efforts to track in-line towards the street. Most meter's you'll find a T-shaped brass handle to turn clock wise for ÓFF'.
  • Unit owner: On occasion such isolation taps can be difficult to source as there’s no real clear-cut standard as to where they're require to be located. The most common areas are: Below laundry tubs, kitchen sinks, common corridor service doors, carparks and standalone wall valves. If unsure, call your strata and have them confirm its location.

Remember, your mains water isolation valve is the most important tap around the property. ALL property owners should have knowledge on their where abouts.
