FOR ALL YOUR PLUMBING SERVICE NEEDS

 

 

Here are

some of the most popular plumbing issues that The Pied Plumber can help you with:

 

 

 

 

No Hot Water around your Pymble Home:

Not having hot water in your home is a popular plumbing problem in Pymble– contact the experts as soon as possible to have it repaired for your family! While hot water leaks are relatively easy to repair, they should not be ignored as they can result in the failure of the hot water unit. In some instances, a malfunctioning hot water tempering device may result in insufficient temperatures around pivotal washdown fixtures such as showers and sinks. We will service, repair, and install new hot water heaters. 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.

When your Boiler systems no longer heating at optimum temperatures, it is time to call in the professionals to solve the issue as soon as possible. We do it with ease.

 

Constant Gas Smell in Pymble:

We are fully licenced and insured gas fitting specialists in Pymble. You may notice an abrupt smell of gas odour anywhere around your appliances; These are all symptoms of a potential leak, such as areas around your gas heater, gas stove, BBQ, gas metre, or even catching a slight egg odour under your floor or home!

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 Pymble 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 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.

 

Blocked External Pymble Drains:  

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!

Tree roots starving for survival in Sydney's perpetual draughts also trigger outside sewage service blockages. These main line choke issues are prevalent throughout Sydney and all surrounding regions, whether you live in Pymble, Wahroonga, or Artarmon - Specialising in branch line obstructions, boundary traps, and shaft issues – We carry and use all high-end professional Jet Blasting drain clearing and CCTV inspection equipment to clean, identify, and pinpoint the exact location of the problem in order to completely unblock your drainage waste water system.

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.

 

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. 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 happens to be an emergency, we are still Plumbing near Pymble and just a phone call away.

 

Blockages with in Household Pymble 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.

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 definitely had a fair share of expertise in each of these matters throughout the last 20 years. Unclogging floor waste near toilets, fixing kitchen plumbing problems effectively, cleaning overflowing wash tubs, and, in some cases, scraping 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.

 

Broken and Burst Pymble 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 Pymble on call, and we will act effectively to replace burst pipes, repair floods, and get you back to normal. Whether it’s a burst hose under a hand basin, a split copper pipe in the garden to those dreaded breaks under the concrete or near the water meter – The Pied Plumber has more than certainly dealt with it! We'll quickly bring you back up and running.

 

Shower Worries:  

Occasionally, you may encounter the feared hidden shower leaks through the nooks and crannies surrounding water taps and shower heads. We are equipped with thermal imaging and can quickly conduct 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 even replace old rusted shower heads with new top notch multi-function heads and install adjustable shower on-a rail dispensers for those odd couples that have significant height differentials.

Whether your toilet, shower, bath or sinks are leaking, blocked or broken, we treat all drain repairs like an emergency and our Pymble plumbers will be there ASAP to unblock, clean and clear your overflowing drain!

When our team arrives, we will find and repair the blockage, as well as ensuring that your drains are installed to standard to avoid any future blockages.

 

Emergency Pymble 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 understands this, which is why our team is made up of the best plumbers in Sydney, who are available to our clients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That is how dedicated our plumbing staff is to you and your family! Therefore, the next time you encounter a plumbing problem in Pymble, our direct response emergency team is available to assist you at any time of day or night.

 

What To do In an After-Hours Pymble 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 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 my bathroom, kitchen, laundry or ensuite has a burst pipe?

 

  • Ok, asking politely to lighten up isn't necessarily enough to repair burst pipes. Before we arrive, attempt to find your water meter; 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 Pymble: 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 stems from a unit block in Pymble, the unit isolation valve is usually located 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.

 

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

 

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. If there is a plumbing issue underneath a hand basin, toilet, or sink; chipboard cupboards and shelves can swell, causing irreversible 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.
