FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

Here are our most common plumbing problems The Pied Plumber can assist with

 

 

 

Blocked Potts Point Fixture Drains:

A common occurrence for most Sydneysiders. Whether that be a result of children leaving their toys behind, or 'that’ close relative arriving over Christmas leaving you in a pickle.

Blocked fixture drains are commonly found in kitchen sinks and even long haired family members can lead to drain clogs and overflowing showers. For the last 20 years – The Pied Plumber has certainly had their fair share of experience in these matters. 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 necessarily pretty and without experience unblocking that ensuite or main bathroom toilet you can do more harm than good.

 

External Drains Blocked:

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!

Outside sewer service blockages are frequently caused by tree roots desperate to survive in Sydney's frequent draughts. Whether you’re in Potts Point, Potts Point or Potts Point these main line choke matters are prevalent around Sydney and all nearby regions. Specialising in branch line obstructions, boundary traps, and shaft issues – We carry and use all high-end professional drain clearing and CCTV inspection equipment to both clean, identify and locate precisely where the problem is to thoroughly unblock your drainage waste water system.

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 in action as soon as possible, as well as adequately analysing the problem to prevent it from happening again.

 

No Hot Water around your Potts Point Home:

Not having hot water at your house is a common plumbing problem in Potts Point – call the experts and fix it fast for your family! While hot water leaks are relatively easy to repair, they should not be ignored as they can result in the failure of the hot water unit. In some cases, a faulty hot water tempering device may result in inadequate temperatures around essential wash down fixtures such as showers and sinks. We will service, repair, and install new hot water heaters. Our parts are sourced exclusively from your local plumbing Reece supplier to ensure that all hot water components in your property last the test of time.

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 and Burst Potts Point Pipes:

Burst water pipes can occur anywhere around your property - usually close to power and various other concealed locations, resulting in severe water damage and a hefty water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber near Potts Point and we will work to replace burst pipes, fix floods, and have you back to normal fast.

 

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 can be isolated below.

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

 

Constant Gas Odour in Potts Point:

We're fully licensed and ensured experts in gas fitting in Potts Point. You might find a sudden smell of gas odour closest to 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 dangerous for you and your family, so call us to discuss your next steps. We have all of the most up-to-date testing and tracing equipment to ensure that your kitchen and heating remain operational.

 

Shower Complications:  

Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water 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.

 

Leaking Taps:

Dripping faucets will drive you and your family insane! Everything from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to "that" bathroom shower that keeps the family awake at night is covered under this popular plumbing issue. Broken and worn washers may lead to high quarterly water bills in all Sydney areas, which is why The Pied Plumber repair and/or fix your leaky taps, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we do it all.

Emergency Potts Point Plumber:

 

We understand that plumbing problems do not always arise during the day, and that they are often prone to occur after work, while you take a shower or use the bathroom. The Pied Plumber recognises this, which is why our team is comprised of the finest plumbers in Sydney, who are available to serve our clients 24 hours a day. That is how committed our plumbing team is to you and your household 7 days a week. So, the next time you experience a plumbing issue in Sydney, our direct response emergency team is ready to help you even at night or very early in the morning.

 

What To do In An After Hours Potts Point 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 recognise areas at risk of floods, look for electrical risks, and there's any water present around your storage hot water service - Switch off the electrical Boiler! Hot water should be labelled simply "HWS", "HOT WATER", or "HW" inside your electrical fuse box.

 

What do I do if a pipe bursts in my toilet, kitchen, laundry or ensuite?

 

  • In most cases, respectfully demanding a delay would not address burst piping. Prior to our arrival, try to locate your water meter and, if possible; 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 residential property around Potts Point: Your water meter is almost certainly situated in the front (facing the street), usually in line with your house hose tap. Check that your metre tap is turned clockwise, then open an outside hose tap to confirm that your water utilities are indeed turned off. This will also allow the remaining house supply water line to drain safely elsewhere!

 

  • If your emergency stems from a unit block in Potts Point, the unit isolation valve is usually located 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.

 

So, you’ve isolated your supplies and about to have us attend:

 

Whilst we have wet vacs along with cleaning equipment and consider this part of our emergency service. Having old towels on hand during emergency scenarios is a must and likely to reduce the severity of damage inside your home. Oftentimes, when a plumbing malfunction happens under a hand basin, shower, or sink; chipboard cabinets and shelves swell irreversibly. Whatever you do, never place any hot air fans to alleviate as this will exacerbate your damage before we even arrive! Let us salvage your plumbing!

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.
