Exciting new office space in Chermside West

Exciting new office space in Chermside West

What a great morning for World Tradesman Day last Friday. A hot cooked brekkie at our office on Ainsdale Street, Chermside West. We even had a few locals lining up for a sausage (with onions on the top not the bottom!)

Thank you to the wonderful locals for welcoming us into the local community. It has been an easy transition with lovely people, good vibes & great coffee next door at Silky Oak Espresso.

Please pop your head in and say ‘hi’ next time you are in the area.


Water efficiency in Albany Creek

Water efficiency in Albany Creek

Are you a landlord or property owner? Are you conscious about saving water? Is your property due for an annual Water Efficiency Assessment?

We assess all tap ware, toilets and showers on the property and test the flow rates to ensure they fall within the allowed range to be considered water efficient.

According to the RTA, tenants can only be charged for water consumption if:
– the property is individually metered (or water is delivered by vehicle), and
– the property is water efficient, and
– the tenancy agreement states the tenant must pay for water consumption (The State of Queensland Residential Tenancies Authority, Manage newsletter subscriptions, 29-05-2017)

We can easily assess your property and upon completion of any required rectifications, we will provide you with a Water Efficiency Certificate.

Contact the office 0410 371 220 today to discuss a suitable time for a plumber to attend and check over your property.

Water leak in Keperra

Water leak in Keperra

Water Leaks on your property can go undetected for a long time before you or the council notice. It some cases you won’t know about a leak on your property until your water meter has been read by council.

We have recently attended to many cases where the main water lines have needed to be excavated in order to find the water leak below ground.

Once the damaged section has been located, we are able to repair the copper or poly pipe using the correct and approved fittings. We test all works to ensure everything is okay and then re instate the ground cover.

The first below picture was taken recently in Keperra and luckily the tenant identified the leak straight away in the front yard from the water pooling in one area.

This leak was quite slow and the leak itself was found on a split 25mm poly.  The issue was found and the repair was completed in a time manner.

This second picture is of a main water supply line in Carseldine that had been leaking for months and was only identified after council had read the water meter and found the property had a very excessively high water usage!

Plumbaround Pty Ltd can find just about every leak there is and repair it to ensure you do not waste any more water on your property than is necessary.

Some water leaks can waste up to 800 litres per day and this can go on for months!

Contact us on 3038-1038 at Plumbaround Pty Ltd is you suspect a water leak on your property and we will have a Qualified Plumber attend ASAP.

New Drainage lines in Aspley

Plumbaround Pty Ltd has started some rectification plumbing works on a commercial property in Aspley.  The rectification works are to the drainage below the building.  Whilst the property underwent previous renovations a short while ago, the drainage lines seem to have been forgotten and not completed to the Australian Plumbing and Drainage Standards AS3500.img_7669

As you can see by the photos, there a few existing waste lines running from the commercial kitchen and are not to the Plumbing and Drainage Standard and are clearly bowing from the excessive heat running through them.

We intend to supply and install Geberit High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which is manufactured for the purpose of discharging wastewater from greasy wastes (restaurants etc), trade waste (factories), laboratory waste, sanitary and stormwater.

Geberit HDPE is temperature resistant and can be used in drainage systems for discharge temperatures up to 80° C  and therefore suiting the purpose of this commercial property.img_7662

The job is now set to commence after a slight delay in which we consulted with a Brisbane City Council Plumbing Inspector on most efficient way to achieve the best possible outcome for this commercial premises.  Can not believe it previously passed on a plumbing inspection!

Geberit HDPE pipes and fittings are UV stabilised, and are low on maintenance.  The HDPE pipe gives out a low heat loss through the pipe wall which prevents grease and fat from solidifying on its way out to the grease trap.

Geberit HDPE has a higher abrasion resistance than metal which gives it the edge over other materials in drainage applications where abrasion effects the life of the pipework and it is extremely resistant to chemicals and solvents. Itis the ideal material for use in Trade Waste, Greasy Waste, DWV, Stormwater, Laboratory or Industrial Drainage applications.

We will post some photos once the job is completed, it will look totally different!!
