FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

 

Here are the top common problems The Pied Plumber can assist you with:

 

 

 

Blockages with In Household 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 bother.

Internal house blockages are usually a result of excessive grease in kitchen sinks along with long-haired family members causing your shower drains to slow and in some cases overflow and discharge.  The Pied Plumber has certainly gained their fair share of experience in these areas over the last two decades. Unblocking floor wastes adjacent to baths, quickly attending to kitchen drainage strife, fixing overflowing laundry tubs and in some cases even removing dried cement from shower drains left by your last tradesman. We’ll take the time to properly remedy your drainage issue with our aim to leave you with knowledge on prevention.

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

 

Burst Newington Pipes:

Burst water pipes can occur anywhere on your property, sometimes near electric wires and other hidden locations, possibly resulting in extensive water damage and an exorbitantly high-water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber near Newington and we will work to replace burst pipes, fix floods, and have you back to normal fast.

 

No Hot Water around your Newington House:

Lack of hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Newington–call the experts and have it resolved quickly for your family! Hot water leaks can be easily rectified but don’t delay - it could result in a hot water unit failure. 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 service, repair, and install new hot water systems. 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 promptly. We do it all, without any fuss.

 

Shower Worries:  

Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water taps and shower heads. We carry thermal imaging equipment and can pressure test your shower outlet with ease. 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 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.

 

Odd Gas Smells around Newington:

We're 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 meter, 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. No cheap short-cuts – Guaranteed.

 

External Newington Drains Blocked:

On occasion, and some more frequently than others, you may hear gurgling around drains, typically in bathrooms, and even outside in areas of sewer overflow. 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 Newington, Croydon, or Burwood. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – We choose to use both high-end specialists Jet-Blast 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 have you back in action in a jiffy along with properly assessing your problem to prevent a recurrence.

 

Toilet trouble:

A leaking cistern can, in some cases, contribute to extensively high-water bills! You may even experience dripping exterior to the toilet and leaks in and around the bowl or pan. If this is a worry, all toilets can be isolated below by that little valve known as the mini-isolation tap.

Whether this appears insignificant, we are always plumbing close by Newington and only a phone call away.

 

Leaking Newington Taps:

Dripping taps and valves will drive you and your loved ones insane! This prevalent plumbing issue comprises everything from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to "that" bathroom shower that keeps the household awake at night. Shattered and worn washers can contribute to high periodical water bills in all Sydney areas, which is why The Pied Plumber takes the time to service and/or replace your leaky taps, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we’ll do it all.

What May I do In An After Hours Newington Plumbing Emergency:

 

Don’t get yourself in a bother; help is only a call away. Emergency scenarios are generally obvious, what may not be 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 - turn your electrical hot water circuit OFF! Hot water should be clearly marked as “HWS”, “HOT WATER” or “HW” inside your electrical meter box.

 

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

 

  • 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 meter will in most cases deplete all sources of household water.

 

  • If you are calling from a residential property around Newington: Your water meter is almost certainly situated in the front (facing the street), usually in line with your house hose tap. Verify that your meter 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 Newington, 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. 

 

Now, you’ve isolated your supplies and in the process of having 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.
