FAQ - Emergency Plumber

Help, I have a plumbing emergency!

What do you do when a plumbing emergency hits? The very first thing is to ensure it's safe, and hopefully not getting even worse. Electricity and water do not play well together safely, so if needed turn the electricity off on the power box.

If there is still water leaking, turn off the water to the appliance or fixture if you can, or go straight to the main shutoff valve for your home. If you’re unable to locate the main valve to turn off, then you could try turning on all the cold water taps inside and outside the house to depressurise the system and reduce the leak.

Once that is sorted, give our plumber a ring, no matter what the day or time is. We’ll be with you promptly to fix the leak.

While waiting, remove any significant things close to the leak, and clean up any water or place a bucket to catch the drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the heating for the hot water as well.

I don’t know where the main water tap is!

The main shutoff valve will generally be on the edge of the property close to the road. It is typically set into the ground below a blue or black plastic cover.

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

Blocked Drains Solved

Our Wollongong 24 hour plumbers realise that a clogged drain can be a major health hazard that needs fixing as soon as possible. That’s why we offer our emergency plumbing service.

Clogged pipes can be a major health hazard, especially if sewage is involved. Occasionally you can unclog it yourself with a plunger and some know-how. If you don’t have a plunger, our emergency plumbers can be there speedily to get the pipes unclogged.

Whether it’s the laundry sink that will not clear, or a clog in the shower, or worse yet, sewage flowing down the hall or across the garden, our on call Wollongong plumbers will efficiently identify the obstruction and clear it so that life can get back to normal.

With our well equipped vehicles, we have all we require available to fix almost all drain blockages right away. If there is an underlying problem that needs other equipment or parts, we can put a temporary solution in place to keep you going until the final repairs are finished.

I have a plunger, can I unclog it myself?

We recommend attempting to clear minor clogs using a plunger if you have one. However, if you don’t have one, or it does not clear the blockage, we do not recommend chemicals as they seldom work well, and can cause more damage to your drains.

Do not let clogged drains ruin your day. Call our urgent Wollongong emergency plumbing team right away!

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water System Issues

Had a hard day at work and desperately require a refreshing shower? Time to put the kids into the tub? Got a sink-full of dishes to finish off? It is seldom convenient to turn on the hot faucet and suddenly discover that the water is lukewarm.

When the hot water has let you down, give our team a call. We will be there promptly to figure out the issue and resolve it. From heating elements to unreliable thermostats to leaking cylinders, our team can repair them and get you back to normal life.

Leaks in the hot water system can cost a large amount, and may cause serious damage to your home. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating often accounts for about 30% of your household’s power bill, so a leak can cause major harm to your pocket very quickly.

If you discover the water is too cold or hot, or there is a leak in the hot water system, call our Wollongong emergency plumbers immediately. We’ll get your hot water flowing again promptly. If you find a large amount of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also switch off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If your existing hot water cylinder is not fixable, our friendly team can assist in picking the best soutions for your budget, home size and your area. If the rest of the system is also tired, our plumbers can arrange an upgrade so you will soon be enjoying life again.

Emergency Plumbers Ready

Burst Pipes Sorted In No Time

Big and small, buried subterranean or in the floor, walls or ceiling, the various pipes in your house are a hidden but significant part of your everyday activities. They carry fresh water to your home, and remove dirty water and sewage out.

Usually, we never even remember their existence unless something goes drastically wrong. But when a leak is destroying the walls, it is generally a serious problem that must be sorted out urgently before your home, your furnishings or even your well-being are damaged or ruined.

As soon as a leak is identified, give our team a call, and our emergency plumbers will be with you quickly. We’re ready to take your call any time. Before they get there, it could be a wise idea to turn off the main water valve to the home to reduce further leaking.

How did the pipe start leaking?

There are varying possible reasons why pipes and taps might start to leak. If you live in a very cold climate, they may have frozen and burst. They could just be old and worn out. The pipes may not have been adequately sealed to begin with. Tree roots can force open subterranean seals.

When the same day plumber arrives, they will isolate the problems and repair them in a prompt and expert manner.

From Washers to Full Tap Replacements

Tapware Leaks Sorted

Do you live with a faucet that won’t turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cupboards, or is altogether busted?

A lot of customers over the years have mentioned how annoying it is to live with a dripping or busted tap. You might not even hear the drip during the daytime, but at night when it’s resounding throughout the house like someone practicing the drums, suddenly it is a sigificant problem.

It isn’t just frustrating drips though. Leaks may drive up the water bill, and also your power bill if it is the hot water. And, if water is getting down into the cabinetry or onto the floor and causing damage, that little tap leak can end up causing a lot of expensive damage.

Whether you require an entire new faucet, or simply a washer that needs replacing, our expert on call plumbers will quickly find the trouble and solve it. Our plumbers even carry a modest choice of taps and faucets in their van for you to pick from, or can install a temporary one if needed.

As well as serving Wollongong with emergency plumbing of all kinds, we are available for non-urgent maintenance and installation work. Night or day, no job is too great or minor.

Why is my tap dripping?

Find a length of string of some kind, and tie it around the tap spout so that it drapes down to the base of the skink or basin. The drips will run down the twine and dribble off quietly.
