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

 

 

 

No Hot Water around your Castle Cove Home:

Lack of hot water in your home is a common plumbing issue in Castle Cove– call the experts and have it resolved quickly 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 cases, a faulty hot water tempering device may result in insufficient temperatures around essential wash down fixtures such as showers and sinks. We can service, repair, and install new hot water systems. Our parts are sourced exclusively from your local plumbing Reece supplier to ensure that all hot water components in your property last 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.

 

Toilet trouble:

A leaking cistern can lead to obscenely high-water bills! External toilet drips and leaks may also occur around the bowl or pan. If this is a concern, all toilets should have taps or valves to isolate your toilet problem. We can even replace the old toilet with the one you've always wanted—you'd be stunned by how much a fresh toilet installation can enhance the feel of a bathroom.

Whether or not this is a crisis, we are always plumbing near Castle Cove and would love to chat with you!

 

Leaking Castle Cove Taps:

Dripping faucets will drive you and your family insane! Everything from leaking kitchen or hand basin mixer tap cartridges to "that" bathroom shower that keeps the family awake at night is covered under this popular plumbing issue. Broken and shattered washers will contribute to high quarterly water bills in Sydney, which is why The Pied Plumber takes the time to repair and/or fix your leaky taps, whether new or old, washer or quarter turn–we do it all.

 

Constant Gas Odour in Castle Cove:

We are fully licenced and insured gas fitting specialists in Castle Cove. You may notice an abrupt smell of gas odour anywhere around 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 extremely dangerous to you and your family; you should contact us to determine your next course of action. We have the most up-to-date testing and tracing equipment to ensure that your kitchen and heating remain operational.

 

Blocked and Clogged External Castle Cove Drains:

On occasion, you may hear gurgling around drains, usually in kitchens, and even sewage floods outside, 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. Whether you’re in Castle Cove, Lindfield or St Ives - 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 uses the latest in both high pressure jet blasting and CCTV inspection drain clearing equipment for us to clean, detect, and locate precisely where the problem is so that your drainage waste water system can 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 as quickly as possible, as well as thoroughly addressing the issues to discourage these from transpiring again.

 

Burst Castle Cove Pipes:

Burst water pipes can occur anywhere on your property, usually near electric wires and other hidden locations, possibly resulting in extensive water damage and a hefty high water bill. We always have a 24-hour emergency plumber on call near Castle Cove, and we'll work quickly to replace burst pipes, repair floods, and restore normalcy. 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 quickly bring you back up and running.

 

Blockages with in Castle Cove Household 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.

The most common causes of internal house blockages are excessive grease in kitchen sinks and long-haired family members clogging shower drains, causing them to stall 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 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.

 

Shower Worries:  

Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water taps and shower heads. We have thermal imaging equipment and can easily perform a pressure test on your shower outlet. 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.

Emergency Castle Cove 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. The Pied Plumber recognises this, which is why our team is comprised of the finest plumbers in Sydney, who are available to serve our clients 24 hours a day. That is how committed our plumbing team is to you and your household 7 days a week. As more than just an outcome, the next time you have a plumbing issue in Castle Cove, our direct response emergency team is ready to help you at any time of day or night.

 

What To do In an After-Hours Castle Cove Plumbing Emergency:

 

Try to remain 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 recognise areas at risk of floods, look for electrical risks, and there's any water 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; 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 are calling from a residential property around Castle Cove: 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 Castle Cove, 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.

 

So, you've isolated your supplies and are about to call The Pied Plumber:

 

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!

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.
