FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

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

 

 

 

Blocked Summer Hill Fixture Drains:

Common for most Sydney families. At some stage whether its children dropping off their toys or ‘that’ family member that arrives every Christmas leaving you in strife.

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 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 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.

 

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 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.

 

Blocked Summer Hill External 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, as these common plumbing issues can be resolved quickly!

Tree roots, desperate to survive in the frequent Sydney draughts, typically cause a blocked outside sewer service. These main line choke issues are widespread in Sydney and the surrounding areas, whether you live in the Summer Hill, Ashfield, or Haberfield. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – The Pied Plumber uses state-of-the-art high-pressure jet blasting and CCTV inspection drain clearing equipment to clean, locate, and pinpoint the exact location of the problem, enabling your drainage waste water system to be truly unblocked.

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 get you back in action as soon as possible, as well as adequately analysing the problem to prevent it from happening again.

 

Leaking Summer Hill 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. Broken and worn washers may lead to high quarterly water bills in all Sydney areas, which is why The Pied Plumber repair and/or fix your leaky taps, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we do it all.

 

Leaking and Burst Summer Hill Pipes:

Burst water pipes can happen everywhere on your property, if near electrical cables and other concealed locations -this may result in significant water damage and a whopping water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber on call near Summer Hill, and we'll work quickly to replace burst pipes, repair floods, and restore normalcy. Whether it’s a burst hose under a hand basin, a split copper pipe in the garden to those dreaded breaks under the concrete or near the water meter – The Pied Plumber has more than certainly dealt with it! We'll get you back and starting again in no time.

 

No Hot Water around your Summer Hill Home:

Not having hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Summer Hill– 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 instances, a malfunctioning hot water tempering device may result in insufficient temperatures around pivotal washdown 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.

When your Boiler systems no longer heating at optimum temperatures, it is time to call in the professionals to solve the issue as soon as possible. We do it with ease.

 

Constant Gas Odour in Summer Hill:

We're are professionally licenced and insured 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 extremely dangerous to you and your family; you should contact us to determine your next course of action. We have the most up-to-date testing and tracing equipment to ensure that your kitchen and heating remain operational.

 

Toilet trouble:

A leaking cistern can lead to obscenely high-water bills! External toilet drips and leaks may also occur around the bowl or pan. If this is a concern, all toilets should have taps or valves to isolate your toilet problem. We can even replace your old toilet with the one you've always wanted—you'd be amazed how much a modern toilet installation can transform the look of a bathroom.

We are always plumbing nearby Summer Hill and would love to talk with you whether this is a crisis or not!

Emergency Summer Hill 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 understands this and our team is made up of the best plumbers in Sydney to service our clients even at night. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, that’s how dedicated our plumbing team is for you and your household. Therefore, the next time you encounter a plumbing problem in Summer Hill, our direct response emergency team is available to assist you at any time of day or night.

 

What To do In an After-Hours Summer Hill 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 locate potential flooding zones, check for electrical risks, or If any water is present near the electrics of your 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 a pipe in my toilet, kitchen, laundry, or ensuite bursts?

 

  • Generally, politely requesting a pause would not resolve burst lines. Prior to our arrival, attempt to find your water metre and, if practicable; 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 Summer Hill: 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 Summer Hill, the unit isolation valve is usually located under the kitchen sink or laundry tub. Unfortunately, there is no defined parameter for evaluating the final location of common property isolation valves. As a consequence, The Pied Plumber firmly advises all unit owners to always be mindful of the given position of the component.

 

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. If there is a plumbing issue underneath a hand basin, toilet, or sink; chipboard cupboards and shelves can swell, causing irreversible damage. 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.
