Emergency Plumbers FAQ

I've got a plumbing emergency, what do I do?

What should you do when you locate a plumbing emergency? Safety first! If there is water anywhere close to electrical outlets or appliances, the immediate first step is to turn off the electricity at the switchboard. Then, try to minimise any more leaking or flooding.

If water is leaking, turn off the water at the nearest valve or at the mains valve outside. If you cannot locate the water main shutoff valve or a tap to the fixture, then turn on the cold faucets inside and out to help depressurise the system and minimise the leak.

Once that is done, give us a ring, no matter what the day or time is. We will be with you shortly to resolve the problem.

In the meantime, start mopping up any water, position a container to catch drips, and remove significant possessions from the area. If the house water is turned off, also switch off the heating for the hot water.

I do not know where the main water tap is!

You may know it as a stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This is generally positioned on the property perimeter close to the road, typically under a blue or black plastic cover.

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

Blocked Drains Issues

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

Clogged drains can cause damage to your residence, or create a health hazard very rapidly. Sometimes, you may be able to resolve the problem yourself with a plunger. If that is not possible however, you need someone there rapidly to clear the blockage so life can get back to normal.

Our vans are well equipped to resolve any drain problem. Whether it’s a item blocking the toilet, a clog in the shower, or something has gone terribly wrong with the sewage pipes, our on call plumbers will get things flowing again.

With our well equipped vans, we have everything we require on hand to repair almost all drain obstructions right then and there. If there is an underlying problem that requires other equipment or parts, we can usually put a temporary solution in place to tide you over until the final repairs are completed.

I have a plunger, can I fix it myself?

If you have a plunger you can attempt to break up the clog in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won't plunge away, please don't use chemicals as they seldom do the job properly and the chemicals can damage the pipes.

Do not let clogged pipes ruin your day. Call our same day West Launceston emergency plumbing team right away!

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water Tank Problems

We tend to take having hot water for granted, until it isn’t working properly. Time to put muddy kids in the shower? Need a good soak to warm up following a long cold day? Have some of dishes to finish up? It is a pain to have a good wash up when the water is cold.

If the hot water isn’t up to standard, you want it repaired as fast as possible. From blown elements, to defective thermostats, to leaking cylinders, we’ve seen everything and can rapidly diagnose the issue and get it resolved.

Leaks in your hot water system can cost a vast amount, and may cause major damage to your residence. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for around thiry percent of the usual home’s electricity bill, so a leak can cause serious harm to your wallet very swiftly.

When you discover the water is too cold or hot, or there is a leak in the hot water system, call our West Launceston emergency plumbers immediately. We’ll get the hot water working again promptly. If there is a lot of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the old hot water cylinder isn’t repairable, our friendly plumbers can help in picking the best soutions for your budget, household needs and your area. If the rest of the system is also worn out, our plumbers can organise an upgrade so you’ll soon be enjoying life again.

Burst Pipes Solved Fast

The pipes in your house are a largely concealed but integral part of daily life. Large and little, in the garden, within the walls or the roof or under the floor, they carry clean water to your home and take the dirty stuff away.

Ususally we do not even think of them. Not until there’s a problem, and suddenly you are looking at a damp patch, or even worse, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be repaired as soon as possible, to prevent damage to your house, furnishings and well-being.

The moment a leak is identified, give our team a ring, and our emergency plumbers will be with you quickly. Our team are ready to answer night or day. Before they get there, it could be a good idea to turn off the main water valve to the house to minimise yet more damage.

Why did the pipe burst?

There are a range of reasons why pipes and taps might break down. If you reside in a cold region, the pipes might have frozen and split. They may simply be old and past their use-by. They might not have been properly installed in the first place. Tree roots can grow into underground joins.

Our urgent plumbers can diagnose and repair your burst pipes or leaks quickly and expertly.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you have a troublesome tap? A faucet that drips all night, leaks or perhaps is doing an impression of a fountain?

A lot of customers over the years have told us how irritating it can be to live with a dripping or broken faucet. You may not even be aware of the drip during the day, but at night when it’s echoing around the house like tapdancing elephants, all of a sudden it is a serious problem.

Not only is the sound irritating, but a dripping or leaking faucet can escalate your bills into orbit, especially if it’s the hot tap. Don’t waste money and potentially cause expensive damage to your house, call our team now.

From replacement washers to entirely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers have everything they need in the vans to resolve your leak. The team carry a small selection of basin and sink taps to pick from if you require a replacement, or can put in a temporary one if needed.

As well as serving West Launceston 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 little.

How can I stop the dripping sound temporarily so I can get some peace and quiet?

Find a length of string of some type, and tie it around the tap aerator so that it drapes down to the bottom of the skink or basin. The drips will run down the string and trickle off quietly.
