External Drains Blocked in Avalon :

You may notice gurgling along sinks, typically in kitchens, and even places of sewage flooding outside on occasion, some more often than others. 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. Whether you’re in Avalon, Brookvale or Beacon Hill - these main line choke matters are prevalent around Sydney and all nearby regions. Obstructions either to branch lines, boundary traps, and shafts are our speciality – 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 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.

 

Shower Worries:  

At times, you may discover the dreaded concealed shower leakage through the nooks and crannies around water water taps and shower heads. We carry thermal imaging equipment and can pressure test your shower outlet with ease.. 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!

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.

 

No Hot Water in your Avalon Home:

Not having hot water at your house is a common plumbing problem in Avalon – 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 service, repair, and install 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.

When the boiler systems stop heating properly, it is time to call in the pros to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. We do this with ease.

 

Leaking Avalon 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 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.

 

Strong Gas Scent In Avalon:

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.

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.

Blockages With In Household Avalon 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 necessary to properly resolve your drainage issue, with the goal of arming you with knowledge about prevention.

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.

Avalon Drain Repairs:

 

Leaking or burst pipes and a damaged or blocked up drain will bring your home to a grinding halt, resulting in an endless list of issues. If your toilet, shower, bath, or sinks are overflowing, blocked, or broken, we consider all drain repairs as an emergency, and our plumbers in Avalon will be there as soon as possible to unblock, clean, and clear your overflowing drain!

If you experience a blocked drain because of tree roots and debris, the first thing you should do is call one our experts. 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 Avalon 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. Our plumbing team is available to you and your family 24 hours a day, seven days a week. So, the next time you have a plumbing problem in Sydney, our direct response emergency team is able to assist you, even if it is night time or very early mornings.

 

What To do In an After-Hours Avalon 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 recognise areas at risk of floods, look for electrical risks, and there's any water present around your storage 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 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 Avalon: 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 Avalon, the unit isolation valve is usually located 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.

 

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

 

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. Chipboard cupboards and shelves may swell if there is a plumbing crisis under a hand basin, toilet, or drain, causing lasting damage. Never, in whatever circumstances, use hot air fans to alleviate the problem, as this will exacerbate the damage before we arrive. Allow us to save your plumbing system!

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.
