Blocked Internal 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 definitely had a fair share of expertise in each of these matters throughout the last 20 years. Unblocking floor wastes adjacent to baths, swiftly attending to kitchen drainage strife, fixing overflowing laundry tubs and in some cases even removing dried cement from shower drains left by your last tradesman. We take the time necessary to properly resolve your drainage issue, with the goal of arming you with knowledge about prevention.

Not having hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Woolwich– call the experts and get it fixed as soon as possible for your family!

THE RIGHT CHOICE!

Our after hours emergency plumbing service will assist you in understanding the most common causes of drain blockages. Once our team arrives at your location, we'll find and repair the blockage, as well as ensure that your drains are properly configured to avoid further blockages.
Emergency Woolwich Plumber:
We recognise that plumbing issues do not always occur throughout the day, and that they are quite likely to occur after work, when you are taking a bath or using the shower. Our plumbing team is available to you and your family 24 hours a day, seven 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 Woolwich Plumbing Emergency:
Try not to stress; 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 identify areas which may be of risk of flooding, check for electrical hazards and IF any water is present around your storage 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 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; 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 residential property around Woolwich: Your water meter is almost certainly situated in the front (facing the street), usually in 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 problem derives from a unit block there in Woolwich, you'll normally find your unit isolation valve 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.
Thereby, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call our assistance:
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. Chipboard cupboards and shelves may swell if there is a plumbing crisis under a hand basin, toilet, or drain, causing lasting 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!

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
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.

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.
