FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

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

 

 

Blockages With In Household Lane Cove 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 pickle.

Blocked fixture drains are commonly found in kitchen sinks and even long haired family members can lead to drain clogs and overflowing showers. The Pied Plumber has definitely had a fair share of expertise in each of these matters throughout the last 20 years. 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 tradesman. We take the time required to truly resolve your drainage dilemma, with the intention of arming you with preventive awareness.

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

 

Shower concerns:  

From time to time, you may experience dreaded in wall concealed shower leaks through the nooks and crannies around 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!

Additionally, we replace rusted shower heads with updated multi-function shower heads and instal personalised shower on-a-rail dispensers for those odd couples with significant height differences.

 

Blocked and Clogged External Lane Cove Drains:

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 is critical to address these issues as soon as they arise because routine plumbing issues can be resolved quickly!

Outside sewer service blockages are frequently caused by tree roots desperate to survive in Sydney's frequent draughts. These main line choke issues are widespread in Sydney and the surrounding areas, whether you live in the Lane Cove, Mosman, or Cammeray - Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty –  The Pied Plumber uses the latest in both high pressure jet blasting and CCTV inspection drain clearing equipment for us to clean, detect, and locate precisely where the problem is so that your drainage waste water system can be fully unblocked.

This also applies to stormwater drains that are unable to handle heavy runoff. Whether the downpipes are clogging in and around pits and you have overflowing strip drains, 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.

 

Broken and Burst Pipes:

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

 

Constant Gas Odour in Lane Cove:

We're fully licensed and insured experts in gas fitting in Lane Cove. You might find a sudden smell of gas odour closest to your appliances; Such as areas around your gas heater, gas stove, BBQ, as well as gas meter, or even if you begin to notice a faint egg odour under your floor or house-all of these are indications of a possible leak!

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:

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. We can even remove your old toilet and replace it with the one you've always desired-you'd be shocked how much a new toilet installation can change the look of a space.

Whether or not this is a crisis, we are always plumbing near Lane Cove and would love to chat with you!

 

No Hot Water in your Lane Cove Home:

Not having hot water at your house is a common plumbing problem in Lane Cove – call the experts and fix it fast for your family!  Hot water leaks can be easily fixed but don’t delay - it could result in a hot water unit failure. 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 repair, maintain and offer brand 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.

 

Leaking Lane Cove Taps:

Dripping taps will drive you and your loved ones insane! This popular plumbing issue includes everything from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to "that" bathroom shower that keeps the family awake at night. Broken and worn washers can contribute to high quarterly 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 do it all.

Lane Cove Drain Repairs:

 

Leaking or burst pipes, as well as a faulty or clogged sewer, can bring your home to a halt, likely to result in an overwhelming number of problems. If your toilet, shower, bath, or sinks are flooded, blocked, or damaged, we treat all drain repairs as an emergency, and our plumbers in Lane Cove will arrive promptly to unblock, Jet Blast, and clear your overflowing drain!

If you have a blocked drain caused by tree roots or litter, the first thing you can do is contact one of our professionals. Our rapid response emergency plumbing service will help you understand the common reasons why drains get blocked. When our staff arrives, we will locate and remove the blockage while also ensuring that your drains are well designed to prevent any unnecessary future blockages.

 

Emergency Lane Cove 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 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 Lane Cove Plumbing Emergency:

 

Don’t panic; help is only a call away. Emergency situations are always apparent; what is not always obvious is your safety! Stop for a few seconds to identify potential flood zones, electrical hazards, or whether any water is directly adjacent the electrics of your 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 do I do if my bathroom, kitchen, laundry or ensuite has a burst pipe?

 

  • In most cases, respectfully demanding a delay would not address burst piping. Prior to our arrival, try to locate your water meter 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 phoning from a house property in Lane Cove: Chances are your water meter is located at the front (facing the street) usually in line with your house hose tap. Ensure that your meter tap is turned clockwise and then open an outdoor hose tap to confirm that your water services are in fact ‘OFF’. This will also enable the remaining house supply water line to safely discharge elsewhere!

 

  • If your emergency is from a unit block in Lane Cove; 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 often assist with this.

 

So, you’ve isolated your supplies and about to have us attend:

 

Although we have wet vacs and cleaning supplies, we believe this to be part of our emergency response. Having old towels on hand during an emergency is important 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 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.
