Hot water should be clearly marked as “HWS”, “HOT WATER” or “HW” inside your electrical meter box.
What can I do if a pipe bursts in my toilet, kitchen, laundry or ensuite?
- Well, asking politely to ease up doesn't generally fix burst pipes. Before we arrive, try and identify where your water meter is located and if possible; establish whether this is a cold or hot water leak so as to know what to isolate. Your water meter if not will eliminate both supplies.
- If you are calling from a private property in the locality of Russell Lea: Your water meter is almost unquestionably in the front (facing the street), typically in direct line with your house garden hose tap. Check that your meter 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 is from a unit block in Russell Lea; You’ll usually find your unit isolation valve either 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 every so often assist with this.
Thereby, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call for our assistance:
Granting that we have wet vacs and cleaning supplies, we believe this to be part of our emergency response. Having old towels on hand throughout an emergency is vital and will certainly reduce the severity of damage inside your house. Often when a plumbing problem occurs under a hand basin, tub or sink; Chipboard cupboards and shelves can swell resulting in permanent damage. Never, in whatever circumstances, use hot air fans to alleviate the problem as this will exacerbate the damage before we even arrive. Allow us to save your plumbing system!

Why is my water coloured?
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
What Should I Be Using To Clean My Toilet?
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.

There's This One Drain Which Constantly Smells! But Nothing's Blocked!
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!

If you require turning off the property at the meter or main control valve:

- 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.
