Check out this video Boxing day fun of the water leak Warwick attended to on Boxing Day 2016! 😯 😥 The leak was in a high rise in Brisbane City with no plumbing suppliers open to source parts from because of the Boxing Day public holiday. Upon arrival to the high rise building, Plumbaround Pty Ltd found a constant dripping from the ceiling from floor 22 in the corridor.
After investigation work, Warwick found there to be a split in the pipe on a bend. In an attempt to install a repair band on the damaged which is directly on the elbow (bend of the pipe), it has worsened the leak and then needed to be cut out. Without suppliers open to source the parts he needed, Warwick has had to fabricate a new bend out of what parts he had available in the truck.
The affected section of pipework has been cut out while still under pressure (hot water still flowing through the pipe) as the hot water was unable to be fully shut down. Hours later and after testing all works, the repair band was holding pressure! Exciting times, with burns to his hands and all 😥
Far from a relaxing day on the Boxing Day public holiday! Just another day @ work with Plumbaround Pty Ltd and the start of the busiest 3 weeks we have seen. We thought the lead up to Christmas was busy but that was just the beginning 🙂 🙂

Happy New Year to all our wonderful clients, partners and suppliers! We feel as though there was no real break between 2016 and 2017, although Warwick did manage to have Christmas day off though!! This has been the most hectic time of the year we’ve ever experienced and we’ve really hit the ground running for a great start to 2017!
Here are a couple of pics from a job recently over the New Year’s public holidays in Yeronga, where the property was flooding through the house. Upon investigation, we found the issue to be much bigger than first anticipated.
This is a wooden floor board removed off the back deck, underneath is basically a swimming pool in the heavy rains experienced in the area. The water pooled in so quickly and the only way the water could escape is by seeping into the inside of the property.
We attended site around 10:30pm at night. Whilst there was nothing we could instantly do in the dark and the rain, I know it put the tenants mind at ease that we were able to attend so urgently.
Trouble-shooting and problem solving plays a big part in plumbing. Our plumbers can investigate an issue and problem solve basically on the spot for the best outcome and solution to a pressing issue.

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.
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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
