What To Do First When A Leak Happens

The first thing that you should do is turn off the main water supply. This will allow you to get rid of the water that is currently in your house. Next, turn on the water supply that is used to repair the leak. Once this is done, you need to find the source of the leak. This can be difficult, so you may want to call a plumber for assistance.

What Tools You Need To Fix The Leak

Once you have found the source of the leak, you can use a plunger or a pipe wrench to remove the broken piece of pipe. After this, you can either replace it or use a new pipe. You should also check the connections around the sink. You should also check the joints where the pipes connect to the sink. If these joints are not tight enough, they could be causing the leak.

After checking the joints, you can now turn the water back on and test it to see if it has stopped leaking. If it does, then you can turn it off again and start over. If it still leaks, you may want to contact a professional plumber to assist you with fixing the problem. This is the best way to ensure that you do not have any more problems.

If you follow these tips, you should be able to easily get your leaky faucet fixed. It may take some time, but it is worth it. You can save money by fixing the problem yourself rather than calling a professional plumber. You can also save money by doing the repairs yourself rather than paying someone else to do them.

Common Complaints!

The most common complaint I hear from homeowners is that they have low water pressure in their homes. It seems to be a problem for many people, and it is a problem that can be easily fixed. Here are six tips on how to fix low water pressure:

  1. First of all, you need to determine what is causing the problem. This will require some investigation. You should check your water meter to see if there is a leak. If there is a leak, then you may want to call a plumber to come out and inspect the situation.
  2. You should also check your water pressure gauge. This should be located near the kitchen sink or at the front door. Make sure that this is working properly. If it is not, then you may have a problem with the water pressure.
  3. Next, you should check your faucets. If you have a water pressure problem, then it may be caused by one of your faucets. To find out which one it is, turn off all the faucets except for the one that is having the problem. Then, look at the faucet to see if there is any water coming out of it. If there is, then it could be the cause of your problem.
  4. If you have a faucet that is not working properly, then you may want to consider replacing it. There are several different types of faucets available. You can buy them online or at home improvement stores. They are relatively inexpensive, so it shouldn’t be a big deal.
  5. Another thing that you may want to do is to check the water filter. If your water filter has been clogged up, then it could be the reason for your problem. You can change the water filter yourself, or you can get someone to do it for you.
  6. Finally, you should make sure that your water heater is working properly. If your water heater is old, then it may be the cause of your problem as well. You should replace your water heater if it is more than 10 years old. You should also check to make sure that the thermostat is working properly.

If you follow these steps, then you should be able to solve your water pressure problems. Hopefully, you will be able to enjoy a high quality shower once again.

In case your water pressure is not fixed please call one of our professional plumbers to come over to your unit, house , apartment or business to have this taken care of.

There are many different things that can cause this problem, and you need to be able to fix it quickly in order to avoid further damage.

What To Do First When You Get Your Drains Blocking Up!

Unclogging Drains!

The first thing that you should do if you are having problems with a clogged drain is to turn off the water supply to the area. This will allow any debris to fall to the bottom of the pipes, where it can be removed by using a plunger or a snake.

You may also want to try using some baking soda as well. You will want to mix this with water and pour it down the drain. The baking soda will help to absorb any remaining grease and other particles.

It is important that you remember to rinse out the plunger after each use. This will prevent it from becoming clogged with debris.

If you have a plunger that is too small for your drain, you can always use a funnel to make sure that all of the debris gets pushed into the sink. This will allow you to get rid of all of the clogs that are present.

When To Call A Plumber!

If you have tried these tips and they have not worked, then you may want to call a professional plumber. They will be able to determine exactly what is causing the clog, and then they will be able to come out and remove the blockage.

Once you have called the plumber, he or she will probably need to use a snake to remove the blockage. This will allow them to go through the pipes and clean them out.

After the pipes are clear, they then consider installing a new pipe in the area. This will prevent future clogging of the drains.

Blocked drain at Stafford

Plumbaround Pty Ltd attended to an urgent call out on the weekend to a blocked drain in Stafford.  The owners found they were unable to use their facilities due to blocked pipework.  This is quite a common occurrence screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-9-10-39-amwith tree roots being to blame for most attendances.  Roots generally enter drains from cracked joints and restrict flow, in turn causing blockages.  This is not the only cause for backed up and blocked drains but seems to be a high percentage of the call outs we attend too.

We send our drain cleaner machine down the nearest access on site, all properties should have and Overflow Relief Gully as per Australian Plumbing Standards AS3500 which is in place to prevent internal house flooding.

Using the drain cleaner we were able to locate this blockage 16 meters down from the ORG on the property at the back of the house.  Some blockages can easily be over 50 meters in from the ORG.  We were able to pull back the tree roots blocking this pipework.  Although it is not uncommon to push the blockage through with the drain machine head.

How do you know if you have a blockage in the pipework/ drain line on your property?

  1. Can you hear a gurgling sound when using taps / toilets?
  2. Have you noticed a smell and not sure where it’s coming from?
  3. Are your drains, either sewer or stormwater overflowing?

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-9-43-00-am

If the answer to any of the above is yes, then chances are you have a blockage in the pipework on your property. Blockages can mean many things and none of them are good, so it’s best to get them taken care of quickly and efficiently by your local plumber.

Plumbaround Pty Ltd are highly skilled in clearing all types of blockages as quickly as possible.  Contact us via email or phone for all urgent blockages!  We will attend as soon as possible to ensure you and your family are able to use your facilities.

No hot water in Albany Creek

A slightly different hot water system sitting half in the wall

A slightly different looking hot water system sitting half in the wall!

No hot water!  There is nothing worse than having your hot water system burst and leak everywhere.  And also not having any hot water because of it!

Check out this existing hot water system replacement we have just attended too!  The previous hot water system was sitting half in the wall, not really something you see too often and not something that is up to the Australian Standards in Plumbing and Drainage these days!!

The tenant was lucky to notice the leaking water from the hot water system so quickly as to avoid damage to the property, especially in behind the walls.

Of course when we supplied and installed a new hot water system to the property, we upgraded it to comply with the Australian Plumbing and Drainage Standards.  It’s a shame we didn’t have any spare brick work on hand to patch up the hole in the wall.  Might be a little job down the track for the handyman.

The hot water system now complying with the Australian Plumbing Standards.

The new hot water system now complying with the Australian Plumbing Standards.

Help is only a phone call away when you are in need of hot water today.  Day or night, we are happy to answer your calls and attend to any situation.

We also enjoy coming across plumbing that is a little different, just like the above hot water system.  If you have seen something a little quirky please let us know about it or send us a pic!
