FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

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

 

 

Blocked Inside Fixture Drains:

Common for most Newtown homes. At some stage whether its children dropping off their toys or ‘that’ family member that stays over 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. For the last 20+ years – The Pied Plumber has certainly had their fair share of practice 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 dodgy tradesman. We take the time to properly repair your drainage problem, and our goal is to leave you with deterrence knowledge to keep your drain functioning trouble-free.

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

 

Irritating Newtown Gas Odours:

We are fully licenced and ensured gas fitting specialists in Newtown. You may notice an abrupt smell of gas odour anywhere around your appliances; Such as areas around your gas heater, gas stove, BBQ, gas meter or even start noticing a faint egg odour occurring under your floor or house - these are all signs of a possible leak!

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. No cheap short-cuts – Guaranteed.

 

Shower Worries:  

Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water taps and shower heads. We have thermal imaging equipment and can easily perform 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 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 should by Australian Standard have taps / valves to isolate your toilet trouble. We can even update and replace your toilet to a suite you’ve always wanted!

Whether this appears insignificant or just a bother, we are always plumbing close by Newtown and only a phone call away.

 

Leaking Newtown Taps:

Dripping faucets will drive you and your family senseless! 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 can contribute to high quarterly water bills in all Sydney areas, which is why The Pied Plumber take the time to service and/or replace your leaky taps, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we do it all.

 

Blocked and Clogged Outdoor Drains:

Occasionally and some more frequently than others; you may experience gurgling sounds around drains that are usually within bathrooms and even in some cases areas of sewer overflow in the garden. It’s imperative to attend to these issues when they arise as these monotonous plumbing problems can be fixed quickly!

Tree roots, desperate to survive in the frequent Sydney draughts, typically cause blocked outside sewer services. Main line choke issues are prevalent in Sydney and the surrounding areas, whether you live in the Newtown, Marrickville, or Enmore. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – We choose to use both high-end specialist Jet-Blast drain clearing and CCTV inspection equipment to both clean, detect, and locate precisely where the problem originates so that your drainage waste water system can be fully unblocked.

This also refers to stormwater drains that won't tolerate a lot of rain. This also refers to stormwater drains that won't tolerate a lot of rain. If your strip drains are overflowing and your downpipes are backing up in and around pits – 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 reoccurring.

Emergency Newtown 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 Newtown Plumbing Emergency:

 

Try not to 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 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 in my toilet, kitchen, laundry, or ensuite bursts?

 

  • Most of the time, asking nicely for broken plumbing to ease up rarely fixes burst pipes. Before we arrive, try and identify where your water meter is located and if possible; Determine if the leak is caused by cold or hot water to ascertain what to isolate. Otherwise, the water meter will exhaust all available supplies.

 

  • If you’re calling from a house property in Newtown: Chances are your water meter is located at the front (facing the street) usually in line with your house hose tap. Confirm that your meter tap is turned clockwise, then open an outside hose tap to check that your water utilities are indeed turned off. This will also enable the remaining house supply water line to discharge safely elsewhere!

 

  • If your emergency stems from a unit block in Newtown, the unit isolation valve is usually located under the kitchen sink or laundry tub. Unfortunately, there is no set parameter for sourcing the final location of common property isolation valves. As a result, The Pied Plumber highly urge all unit owners to always be mindful of the particular orientation of such components.

 

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. Often when a plumbing problem occurs under a hand basin, tub or sink; Chipboard cupboards and shelves can swell resulting in irreversible damage. Whatever you do, try not to 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.
