External Drains Blocked:

On occasion, and in some cases more frequently than others, you may hear gurgling around drains, typically in bathrooms, and even in areas of sewer overflow outside. 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 prevalent throughout Sydney and all surrounding regions, whether you live in Pyrmont, Darlinghurst, or Broadway - Branch line obstructions, boundary trap or shaft matters are our specialty –   The Pied Plumber uses state-of-the-art high-pressure jet blasting and CCTV inspection drain clearing equipment to clean, locate, and pinpoint the exact location of the problem, enabling your drainage waste water system to be truly 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 have you back in action in a jiffy along with properly assessing your problem to prevent a recurrence.

 

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.

Blockages with in Household 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 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 needed to truly address your drainage problem, with the goal of arming you with preventive knowledge.

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

 

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

 

Try not to stress; help is only a call away. Emergency scenarios are always prevalently obvious, what may not be is your safety! 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 - 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 bursts in my toilet, kitchen, laundry or ensuite?

 

  • 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 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 Pyrmont: Chances are your water meter is located at 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 is from a unit block in Pyrmont; 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.

 

Thereby, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call our assistance:

 

Despite the fact that we have wet vacs and cleaning equipment, we feel this is part of our emergency response. Having old towels on hand during an incident is vital and would almost certainly reduce the seriousness of the damage inside your home. Oftentimes, when a plumbing malfunction happens under a hand basin, shower, or sink; chipboard cabinets and shelves swell irreversibly. Under no conditions can hot air fans be used to mitigate the crisis, as this would escalate the harm before we arrive. Let us help you 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.
