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.

Blocked drains in Albany Creek

Uh-oh, how did you all go in the heavy rain last night?  We are situated in Albany Creek and we had an amazing lightening show, very loud clapping thunder and awoke to early morning wake up calls to blocked drains and down pipes!  All Plumbaround Pty Ltd staff had an early start to the day with the daily planned jobs ahead and many emergencies thrown in as well.outdoor-drainage-issue-01-12-16

A few tenants and owners had a not so pleasant morning awakening to flooding due to blockages.  Whilst there isn’t much you can do once flooding has occurred, except to contact your local Plumbaround Pty Ltd plumber to help you out.  However leading into this storm season there are a few things you can do to ensure your that your property and possessions stay safe and unaffected by stormy weather.  A backlog of water during a wild storm can cause subsequent overflowing and damage to your roof, ceilings and walls.

  1.  Clean out your gutters!  Yes regular maintenance on your gutters will ensure they are free from debris and that they flow correctly during heavy rains.  Cleaning your gutters keeps your down pipes unblocked and free flowing as well as ensuring no rotting matter corrodes out the gutters and down pipes.  Yes of course we can help you organise to clean out your gutters, contact us today for an inspection and a plan of attack before storm season hits.
  2. Seriously consider gutter guard protection for your gutters, especially after cleaning the gutters free of debris  and especially if you have just had new gutters installed on your home!  What better what to protect your gutters and down pipes and your property stormy weather.  Contact us here at Plumbaround Pty Ltd for an inspection and a FREE quote today!
  3. If you have noticed any strange drain or pipe issues lately or in recent months, contact us and we’ll send one of our professional plumbers out to check these problem areas before a storm hits and amplifies the problem to make sure you do not have a blocked drain.  Prevention is always cheaper and easier than emergency plumbing!  Good luck and stay safe!

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!!
