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

 

 

 

 

Toilet trouble:

A leaking cistern can, in some cases, contribute to extensively high-water bills! You may even experience external toilet drips and leaks in and around the bowl or pan. If this is of concern, all toilets can be isolated below. 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.

Whether or not this happens to be an emergency, we are still Plumbing near Alexandria and just a phone call away.

 

No Hot Water around your Alexandria Property:

Not having hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Alexandria– call the experts and get it fixed as soon as possible 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 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.

 

Constant Gas Odour in Alexandria:

We're fully licensed and insured experts in gas fitting in Alexandria. 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 potentially dangerous for you and your family - you should call us to assess your next move. We have all the latest testing and tracing equipment at our disposal to ensure your kitchen and heating stay operational.

 

Leaking Alexandria 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 External Alexandria Drains:  

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 because routine plumbing issues can be resolved quickly!

A blocked outside sewer service is usually caused by tree roots desperate to survive in frequent Sydney draughts. These main line choke issues are widespread in Sydney and the surrounding areas, whether you live in the Alexandria, Broadway, or Camperdown - 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 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 Complications:  

At times, you may discover the dreaded concealed shower leakage through the nooks and crannies around water 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!

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 Alexandria 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 near Alexandria on call, and we will act effectively to replace burst pipes, repair floods, and get you back to normal. The Pied Plumber has worked with everything from broken hoses under sinks to a split copper pipes in the garden and those dreaded breaks under the pavement or above the water meter. We'll get you back and starting again in no time.

 

Blocked Internal Alexandria Drains:

At some point, whether it's your children dropping off their toys or 'that' family member who shows up every Christmas and causes havoc.

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 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 remedy your drainage problem with our aim to leave you with knowledge on prevention.

Let's face it: drains aren't always pretty, and unblocking the ensuite or main bathroom toilet without professional assistance can do more harm in the long run.

Emergency Alexandria 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 Alexandria, our direct response emergency team is available to assist you at any time of day or night.

 

What To do In an After-Hours Alexandria Plumbing Emergency:

 

The key is 'calm'; 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! - 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?

 

  • Ok, asking politely to lighten up isn't necessarily enough to repair burst pipes. Before we arrive, attempt to find your water meter; 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 Alexandria: 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 emergency is from a unit block in Alexandria; You’ll usually find your unit isolation valve either 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:

 

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 place any hot air fans to alleviate as this will exacerbate your damage before we even arrive. Let us salvage 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.
