Emergency Plumber - FAQ

What do I do when a plumbing catastrophe occurrs?

What do you do when a plumbing disaster strikes? The very first thing is to ensure it is safe, and not getting even worse. Electricity and water do not combine safely, so if you need to, turn the mains switch off at the power panel.

Many appliances and fixtures have service valves that can be turned off. For example, the toilet will have an isolating valve below or beside the cistern. If you cannot find a valve, or that does not stop the leak, then turn off the mains water isolating valve to stop all water to your home.

Once that’s done, give our team a ring, whatever the day or time is. We will be there promptly to resolve the problem.

While you wait, begin wiping up any water, place a container to catch drips, and clear away significant things from the affected area. If the property water is turned off, then also switch off the heating for the hot water.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

You may have been shown the main valve as the stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This is normally positioned on the boundary close to the road, typically under a blue or black cover.

It is also known as an isolating valve, toby or stopcock.

Blocked Drains Problems

We realise a blocked drain can be a major problem. Whether it’s the laundry sink, the toilet, or the gully trap outside your home, a blocked pipe is seldom a happy circumstance. That’s why our crew of emergency plumbers are ready to deal with your plumbing emergency.

Obestructed drains can be a serious health hazard, especially when sewage is involved. Sometimes you can unblock it on your own with a plunger and some can-do attitude. If you don’t have a plunger though, our emergency plumbers can arrive quickly to get the pipes unclogged.

Whether the toilet is overflowing, the sink will not drain, or the stormwater drain is flooding the garden, we’ll arrive at your abode rapidly to resolve the issue. Our knowledgeable plumbers will get the water flowing where it is meant to go and tidy up the mess.

In the rare case that our plumbers can’t get the clog completely removed or more comprehensive repairs are required, we will find an interim solution to keep you going until our plumbers come back.

Can I use a chemical drain cleaner?

If you have a plunger you can attempt to clear the blockage in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won't plunge away, please don't use chemicals as they seldom get the job done properly and the chemicals can ruin the drain pipes.

Don’t let a blocked drain ruin your day. Call us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water Not Working

Had a hard day at work and desperately require a nice warm shower? Time to put the children in the tub? Got a sink-full of dishes to deal with? It’s rarely handy to turn on the hot tap and suddenly realise that the water is lukewarm.

When the hot water is not hot enough, you need it repaired as soon as possible. From blown elements, to faulty thermostats, to leaking cylinders, we’ve seen it all and can quickly identify the problem and get it resolved.

Hot water leaks can rapidly send the electricity bill through the roof. Leaks hiding in the back of the hot water cupboard can create significant damage to the cabinetry. If you don’t get it fixed asap, the cost will become more expensive by the day.

When you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in the hot water system, ring our Punchbowl emergency plumbers as soon as you can. We will get your hot water working again promptly. If there is a lot of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also switch off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If you need a new hot water cylinder, our team can assist in picking a suitable option for your budget, needs and area. If the whole hot water system needs improvements, our plumbers can schedule to do that in a timely manner as well.

Burst Pipes Solved In No Time

Big and small, buried in the garden or in the floor, walls or roof, the various pipes in your home are a hidden but indispensible part of your daily life. They bring clean water to your abode, and transfer used water and sewage away.

Often, you never even think about their existence until something goes wrong. But when it does, it’s generally a major issue that must be sorted urgently before the building, your belongings or even your health are damaged or ruined.

Our emergency plumbers are ready to be on the scene right away, so ring us as soon as you find a burst pipe or leak of any kind. You can cut back further damage by turning the water to the house off at the mains tap if needed.

Why did the pipe fail?

There are various reasons why pipes and taps might fail. If you reside in a very cold region, the pipes might have iced up and ruptured. They may simply be old and past their use-by. They might not have been installed properly to begin with. Tree roots may invade underground connections.

Once they arrive, our urgent plumber will locate the problem and speedily repair the leak or burst pipe. They can also assess the rest of the pipework if required to look for other issues.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you have a problem tap? A faucet that will not turn on or off properly, drips, or is just plain broken?

A lot of our clientelle over the years have told us how irritating it can be to have a dripping or busted faucet. You may not even notice the drip during the daytime, but in the wee hours when it’s resounding throughout your home like a herd of stampeeding wildebeest, suddenly it is a serious issue.

Not only is the sound annoying, but a dripping or leaking faucet can raise the bills through the roof, especially if it’s the hot water. Do not waste money and potentially cause long term damage to your residence, call us now.

Whether you just need a washer, or a whole new faucet, our 24 hour plumbers have the parts that you require. All the vehicles are fully stocked with parts and have a small choice of new taps and faucets to select from if required.

As well as providing Punchbowl with emergency plumbing of all types, our plumbers are available for day to day maintenance and installation work. 24/7, no job is too extensive or minor.

Why is my tap dripping?

Find a piece of string of some kind, and tie it onto the tap spout so that it dangles down to the base of the skink or basin. The drips will run down the twine and trickle off quietly.
