FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

Blockages with In Household Rushcutters Bay 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.

Internal house blockages are typically caused by excessive grease in kitchen sinks and long-haired family members clogging shower drains and causing them to slow and in some cases overflow. The Pied Plumber is a leading Sydney plumbing company with over 20 years in the industry. Unblocking floor drains adjacent to baths, resolving kitchen drainage issues quickly, repairing overflowing laundry tubs, and in some cases, removing dried cement from shower drains left by your previous tradesman. We take the time to properly repair your drainage problem, and our goal is to leave you with prevention knowledge.

Let's face it, drains aren't always attractive, and without prior experience, unclogging an ensuite or main bathroom toilet can cause more harm than good.

 

Blocked and Clogged External Rushcutters Bay 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 prevalent throughout Sydney and all surrounding regions, whether you live in Rushcutters Bay, Dover Heights, or Point Piper. Obstructions either to branch lines, boundary traps, and shafts are our speciality – We carry and use all high-end professional drain clearing and CCTV inspection equipment to clean, identify, and pinpoint the exact location of the problem in order to completely 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 at your Rushcutters Bay Property:

Not having hot water at your house is a common plumbing problem in Rushcutters Bay – 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 insufficient temperatures around essential wash down fixtures such as showers and sinks. We will service, repair, and install new hot water heaters. Our parts are solely sourced at your closest plumbing Reece supplier to ensure all hot water components within your property stands the test of time. 

When the boiler systems stop heating properly, it is time to call in the pros to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. We do this with ease.

 

Shower Complications:

  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 the plumbing is undoubtedly the safest first measure before shelling out hundreds of dollars to reseal a bath or shower assembly just to find the issue remains!

We even replace old rusted shower heads with new top notch multi-function heads and install adjustable shower on-a rail dispensers for those odd couples that have significant height differentials.

 

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 or not this appears insignificant - We’re always Plumbing close to Rushcutters Bay and only one call away.

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 Rushcutters Bay and we will work to replace burst pipes, fix floods, and have you back to normal fast.

 

Leaking Rushcutters Bay 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.

Emergency Rushcutters Bay Plumber:

 

We understand that plumbing problems do not often exist during the day, and that they sometimes occur after work, while you take a shower or use the toilets. 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 Rushcutters Bay Plumbing Emergency:

 

Don’t panic; help is only a call away. Although emergency situations are always evident, your protection may not be! 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 - 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 my bathroom, kitchen, laundry or ensuite has a burst pipe?

 

  • Well, asking nicely to ease up doesn't usually fix burst pipes. Before we arrive, try and identify where your water meter is located and if possible; determine if the leak is cold or hot water so that you know what to separate. Otherwise, the water metre would deplete all sources.

 

  • If you are calling from a residential property around Rushcutters Bay: Your water meter is almost certainly situated in the front (facing the street), usually in line with your house hose tap. Verify that your metre tap is turning clockwise, then open an outside hose garden hose to validate that your water utilities have been turned off. This also allows for the safe discharge of the remaining house supply water pipe!

 

  • If your emergency stems from a unit block in Rushcutters Bay, the unit isolation valve is usually located under the kitchen sink or laundry tub. Unfortunately, common property dwellings do not have a set standard as to their ultimate whereabouts. This is why we urge all unit owners to at all times know the exact location of such valves. Strata can often assist with this. 

 

So, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call The Pied Plumber:

 

Although we have wet vacs and cleaning equipment on hand, we feel this is a necessary component of our emergency response. Having old towels on hand during an emergency is critical and can almost certainly mitigate the extent of any damage to 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 use hot air fans to relieve the situation, as this will escalate the damage before we arrive. Allow us to save 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.
