Frequently Asked Questions - Important

Emergency Plumbers: FAQ

I have a plumbing emergency, what should I do?

What do you do when a plumbing calamity strikes? The very first thing is to make sure it's safe, and hopefully not getting even worse. Electricity and water do not play well together safely, so if needed turn the mains switch off at the breaker box.

A lot of appliances and fixtures have isolating valves that can be turned off. For example, the toilet will have a tap below or beside the cistern. If you cannot locate a tap, or that doesn’t stop the leak, then turn off the mains isolating valve to stop all the water to your property.

Once you have stopped the problem from worsening, give our emergency plumber a call, any hour of the day or night. We will be there rapidly to solve the problem.

While you wait for our plumber to arrive, start cleaning up any water, position a container to catch drips, and clear away valuable things from the area. If the mains water is turned off, then also switch off the heating for the hot water.

Help, I don’t know where the main water shutoff valve is!

You might know the main valve as a stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This valve is generally positioned on the boundary near the road, usually under a blue or black plastic cover.

The toilet has its own tap alongside the toilet.

Blocked Drains Issues

Our West Launceston same day plumbers understand that a obstructed pipe can be a serious health hazard that needs attending to asap. That’s why we provide our emergency plumbing service.

Blocked pipes can be a major health risk, especially when sewage is involved. If you’re lucky you can unclog it by yourself with a plunger and a little can-do attitude. If you don’t have a plunger, our emergency plumbers can be there speedily to get the drains cleared.

Whether the toilet is overflowing, your sink won’t empty, or your stormwater drain is flooding the yard, we will arrive at your abode rapidly to solve the issue. Our knowledgeable plumbers will get the water running where it is meant to go and tidy up the mess.

All our vans are well equipped, so we can normally fix everything right then and there. In the unlikely case that we can’t, we will temporarily resolve the complication to minimise further damage and return with what is needed as soon as we can.

Can I unblock the drain myself?

If you have a plunger, it's worth trying to unblock the blockage yourself. We recommend using a plunger with a long handle, particularly for the toilet, so you can stay out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not recommended as they seldom do a good job and can cause damage to your pipes.

Don’t let a blocked pipe send your day down the tubes. Ring us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Go Without Hot Water

Hot Water Tank Not Working

You usually don’t realise how much we count on easy quick hot water until it is not there anymore. Just finished up in the garden and really want a shower? Want to finish off a pile of dishes? The last thing you need is to turn on the water and discover it’s lukewarm.

When the hot water isn’t hot enough, you need it to be repaired promptly. From blown elements, to unreliable thermostats, to leaking cylinders, we have seen it all and can rapidly identify the issue and get it fixed.

Did you know around 30% of your household power bill powers the hot water heating? A leak may suddenly send your power bill through the roof. Leaks may also cause a lot of damage to your home and to things stored in the hot water cupboard. Do not let hot water troubles hurt your wallet, get them repaired asap.

When you find the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in the hot water system, ring our West Launceston emergency plumbers right away. We will get your hot water flowing again promptly. If there is a large amount of water leaking, turn off the water at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the old hot water cylinder isn’t fixable, our professional plumbers can help in finding the best options for your budget, home size and your area. If the rest of the system is also past it’s use by, our plumbers can schedule an upgrade so you’ll soon be enjoying life again.

From Tap Washers to Full Replacements

Tapware Issues Sorted

Do you have a irksome faucet? One that won’t turn on or off properly, drips, or is just busted?

A lot of clients over the years have mentioned how annoying it can be to live with a dripping or broken tap. You may not even notice the drip during the daytime, but at 3am when it is echoing throughout your home like tapdancing elephants, all of a sudden it is a major problem.

Not only can it keep the whole house awake, a leaking tap can send your power bill though the roof as well, especially if it is hot water. Don’t let the bills increase even more, or possibly cause damage to your house, ring our 24 hour plumber straight away.

Whether you just need a washer, or a whole replacement tap, our after hours plumbers have got what you require. All our vehicles are well equipped with parts and have a modest selection of new taps and faucets for you to select from if desired. If we don’t have the faucet you want, our plumber can install a temporary faucet until we find the style you need.

From emergency plumbing to general maintenance, there is no job too large or little for our West Launceston plumbers. Not only can we sort out your leaking taps, we also offer a broad range of other plumbing services.

How can I stop the dripping sound temporarily so I can get some rest?

Find a piece of string of some type, and knot it onto the tap spout so that it dangles down to the bottom of the skink or basin. The drips will slide along the twine and dribble off quietly.
