Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

Emergency Plumber - FAQ

Help, I have a plumbing emergency!

What should you do when you locate a plumbing emergency? Safety first! If there is water anywhere near electrical outlets or appliances, the immediate first step is to switch off the power at the switchboard. Then, attempt to minimise any further leaking or flooding.

Many appliances and fixtures have service valves that you can turn off. For example, the toilet will have an isolating tap below or beside the cistern. If you cannot locate a valve, or that doesn’t stop the leak, then turn off the mains water isolating tap to stop all water to your house.

Once you have stopped the diaster from getting worse, give our emergency plumber a ring, at any time of the day or night. We will be there rapidly to resolve the issue.

While waiting for our emergency plumber, clear away any important items, clean up any water, and position a bucket to catch any drips. You also should turn off the hot water heating if the main water is turned off.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

The water main shutoff valve is usually positioned on the property perimeter near the road, under a blue or black plastic cover. You may know it as a toby, stopcock or isolated valve. Turning the mains off can save your home from more leaks or damage to the hot water cylinder.

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

Blocked Drains Issues

We realise a clogged drain can be a serious emergency. Whether it is the kitchen sink, the toilet, or the gully trap beside the house, a blocked drain is seldom a good thing. That’s why our crew of emergency plumbers are waiting to solve your plumbing emergency.

Blocked pipes can cause damage to your home, or create a health hazard very rapidly. In some cases, you may be able to clear the block yourself with a plunger. If that is not possible however, you need a professional there rapidly to clear the blockage so life can get back to normal.

Our vans are well equipped to resolve any drain emergency. Whether there is a toy blocking the toilet, or a clog in the shower, or something has gone terribly wrong with the sewage pipes, our on call plumbers will get everything flowing once more.

With our well equipped vans, we have everything we require available to fix almost all drain blockages right away. If there is an underlying problem that requires extra equipment or parts, we can usually put an interim solution in place to tide you over until the final repairs are completed.

Can I use a chemical drain cleaner?

If you have a plunger handy you can try to clear the clog in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won't plunge away, please do not use chemicals as they seldom do the job properly and the chemicals can ruin your drains.

Don’t let obstructed pipes ruin your day. Call our urgent St Leonards emergency plumbers now!

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water System Not Working

Had a hard day at work and badly want a refreshing shower? Time to put the kids into the tub? Got a pile of dishes to deal with? It’s never opportune to turn on the hot tap and suddenly realise that the water is tepid.

When the hot water isn’t giving you that happy feeling, you need it working again promptly. Whether the heating element has blown, the thermostat is faulty and the water is luke warm or practically boiling, there is a leak, or the tank is constantly overflowing, you need it repaired asap so your life can get back to normal.

Hot water leaks can rapidly send your power bill through the roof. Leaks undetected in the back of the hot water cupboard can cause significant damage to your cabinetry. If you don’t get it fixed as fast as possible, the cost can become more costly by the hour.

When you find the water is too cold or hot, or there is a leak in your hot water system, ring our St Leonards emergency plumbers immediately. We will get your hot water working again quickly. If there is a large amount of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If you do need a new hot water cylinder, our plumbers can assist in picking a suitable solution for your budget, requirements and location. If the entire hot water system needs upgrading, we can schedule to do that in a opportune manner as well.

Burst Pipes Resolved Fast

From the small clean water pipes in your walls and roof, to the large sewage pipes underground, most of the pipes in your house are tucked away out of sight and out of mind. We never even remember them until there is an issue.

Normally you barely even think of them. Not until something goes wrong, and all of a sudden you’re standing in a pool of water, or even worse, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be fixed asap, to prevent damage to your home, possessions and health.

As soon as a leak is found, give us a ring, and our emergency plumbers will be on the road quickly. We are ready to answer day or night. Before they get there, it may be a wise idea to turn off the main water valve to the property to reduce yet more flooding.

How did my pipe burst?

Pipes can deteriorate and start to leak for a variety of reasons. If you own an older home, they might simply be aged and dilapidated. If you live somewhere very cold, they may have iced up and cracked. In a recently built house, there may be a problem with how they were installed. Subterranean seals might have been invaded by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

When they are at your home, our same day plumber will diagnose the problem and rapidly repair the leak or burst pipe. They can also check out the rest of your pipework if needed to check for other issues.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you own a problematic tap? A tap that won’t turn on or off properly, drips, or is just straight up defective?

Over the years, we have learned that even a dripping tap can be a major irritation. Something that may go unheard in the hurly burly of every day life suddenly sounds like a jack hammer at 2am, ruining your sleep.

It’s not only vexing drips though. Leaks may run up the water bill, and also your power bill if it’s hot water. And, if water is leaking into the cabinetry or onto the floor and causing damage, that little tap leak can end up putting a huge dent in your wallet.

Whether you simply need a washer, or a whole replacement faucet, our urgent plumbers have the parts that you need. All our vehicles are fully equipped with parts and carry a modest selection of new taps and faucets for you to select from if required. If we do not have the faucet you want, we can install an interim tap until we track down what you want.

From large to small, our St Leonards emergency plumbers can do it all. Not just taps, we provide a wide selection of urgent and non-urgent plumbing services.

The drips are keeping me awake, how can I stop them temporarily to get some peace and quiet?

Normally, a dripping faucet is caused by a dilapidated or faulty washer, seal or ceramic cartridge. Depending on the brand of tap, we can often replace dilapidated parts immediately for a very modest expenditure.
