FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

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 Balmain on call, and we will act effectively to replace burst pipes, repair floods, and get you back to normal.

 

No Hot Water around your Balmain Home:

Not having hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Balmain–call the experts and get it fixed as soon as possible 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 can repair, maintain and offer brand new hot water systems. 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 your Boiler systems no longer heating at optimum amounts, it is time to call in the professionals to solve the issue as soon as possible. We do it with ease.

 

Shower Worries:  

At times, you may discover the dreaded concealed shower leakage through the nooks and crannies around water taps and shower heads. We have thermal imaging equipment and can easily perform 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.

 

Blockages with In Household Drains:

At some point, whether it's your children dropping off their toys or 'that' family member who shows up every Christmas and causes havoc.

Blocked fixture drains are commonly found in kitchen sinks and even lengthy haired family members can lead to drain clogs and overflowing showers. The Pied Plumber has certainly gained their fair share of experience in these areas over the last two decades. 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 remedy your drainage problem with our aim to leave you with knowledge on 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.

 

Blocked and Clogged External Balmain Drains:

On occasion, and in some cases more frequently than others, you may hear gurgling around drains, typically in bathrooms, and even in areas of sewer overflow outside. It is critical to address these issues as soon as they arise because routine plumbing issues 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 Balmain, Five Dock, or Russell Lea. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – 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 applies to stormwater drains that are unable to cope with heavy rainfall. If your downpipes are backing up in and around pits and your strip drains are overflowing – We’ll take the time to have you back in action in a jiffy along with properly assessing your problem to prevent a recurrence.

 

Constant Gas Odour in Balmain:

We are professionally licenced and ensured gas fitting specialists. A 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 potentially dangerous for you and your family - you should call us to assess your next move. We have all the latest testing and tracing equipment at our disposal to ensure your kitchen and heating stay operational.

 

Leaking Balmain 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. 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:

In some cases, a leaking cistern can contribute to absurdly high water bills! External toilet drips and leaks in and around the bowl or pan are also possible. If this is a concern, all toilets should have taps or valves to isolate your toilet problem.

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

Emergency Balmain 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 understands this, which is why our team is made up of the best plumbers in Sydney, who are available to our clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That is how dedicated our plumbing staff is to you and your family! So, the next time you have a plumbing problem in Sydney, our direct response emergency team is able to assist you, even if it is night time or very early mornings.

 

What To do In An After Hours Balmain Plumbing Emergency:

 

Don’t panic; help is only a call away. Emergency scenarios are always prevalently obvious, what may not be 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’re phoning from a house property in Balmain: Chances are your water meter is located at 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 problem derives from a unit block there in Balmain, you'll normally find your unit isolation valve 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. 

 

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

 

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.
