FOLLOW THE LEADER IN SERVICE…
FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS
The Pied Plumber can assist you with the following common issues:
Blocked External Neutral Bay 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!
Tree roots, desperate to survive in the frequent Sydney draughts, typically cause a blocked outside sewer service. Whether you’re in Neutral Bay, North Sydney or Kirribilli - these main line choke matters are prevalent around Sydney and all nearby regions. Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty – The Pied Plumber employs cutting-edge high-pressure jet blasting and CCTV inspection drain clearing equipment to clean, identify, and pinpoint the exact location of the problem, allowing your drainage waste water system to be fully 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 up and running quickly while also properly assessing your problem to prevent a recurrence.
Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water taps and shower heads. We are equipped with thermal imaging and can quickly conduct 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 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.
Broken and Burst Neutral Bay Pipes:
Burst water pipes can occur anywhere around your property - usually close to power and various other concealed locations, resulting in severe water damage and a hefty water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber on call near Neutral Bay, 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.
Leaking Neutral Bay Taps:
Dripping taps can drive you and your family crazy! This common plumbing problem ranges from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to ‘that’ bathroom shower that keeps the family up at night. In all Sydney suburbs, worn and broken washers may result in increased quarterly water bills, which is why The Pied Plumber takes the time to repair and/or fix your leaky pipes, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn – we do it all.
Blocked Neutral Bay Fixture 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.
Excessive grease in kitchen sinks and long-haired family members clogging shower drains, causing them to stall and, in some cases, burst, are the most frequent sources of internal house blockages. The Pied Plumber has certainly gained their fair share of experience in these areas over the last two decades. Unblocking floor waste near toilets, successfully restoring kitchen plumbing issues, fixing overflowing wash tubs, and, in some cases, removing dry cement from shower drains left by the 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 necessarily pretty and without experience unblocking that ensuite or main bathroom toilet you can do more harm than good.
No Hot Water in your Neutral Bay Home:
Not having hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Neutral Bay– call the experts and get it fixed as soon as possible for your family! Hot water leaks can be simple to repair, but if you leave it too late, it could lead to 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 solely sourced at your closest plumbing Reece supplier to ensure all hot water components within your property stands 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 fast. We do it all, without any hassle.

Emergency Neutral Bay Plumber:

Our plumbing team is available to you and your family 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Therefore, the next time you encounter a plumbing problem in Neutral Bay, our direct response emergency team is available to assist you at any time of day or night.
What To do In an After-Hours Neutral Bay Plumbing Emergency:
Don’t panic; help is only a call away. Emergency crises are quite often evident; but, your wellbeing is not always apparent! 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 - 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?
- 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; establish whether this is a cold or hot water leak so as to know what to isolate. Your water meter otherwise will eliminate both supplies.
- If you are calling from a private property in the vicinity of Neutral Bay: Your water meter is almost definitely in the front (facing the street), typically in direct line with your house hose tap. Check that your metre 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 Neutral Bay; You’ll usually find your unit isolation valve either under the kitchen sink or laundry tub. Regrettably, no fixed parameter exists for determining the final position of shared property isolation valves. As a result, The Pied Plumber strongly advises all unit owners to always be aware of the component's given position.
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. Oftentimes, when a plumbing malfunction happens under a hand basin, shower, or sink; chipboard cabinets and shelves swell irreversibly. 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!

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!

5 strategies for saving money on your water bills in Sydney
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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

Help! How Do I Turn My Water OFF?
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.
