Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

Emergency Plumbers: FAQ

I have a plumbing emergency, what should I do?

Safety first! Electricity and water do not mix well, so turn the power off at the breaker box if needed first.

If water is leaking, turn off the water at the nearest location and then at the mains tap outside. If you can’t find the water main shutoff valve or a tap to the appliance, then turn on all the cold faucets inside and out to help depressurise the household pipework and reduce the leak.

Once that’s sorted, give our plumber a ring, whatever the day or time is. We will be with you shortly to get things sorted.

While you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, clear away any important possessions close to the leak, and mop up any water or position a bucket to catch the drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the hot water heating as well.

I do not know where the main water tap is!

The main shutoff valve is positioned on the property perimeter close to the road, typically under a blue or black cover. You may know it as the toby, stopcock or isolated valve. Turning this off can protect your residence from increasing leaks or damage to the hot water cylinder.

The toilet has its own tap behind the toilet bowl.

Blocked Drains Issues

When your pipes are overflowing, you want help quickly. Our emergency Wollongong plumbers understand how disheartening and damaging blocked pipes can be, and they are ready to get them unobstructed again.

A obstructed drain is a serious predicament, especially when it involves sewage. If you’re lucky, you can unclog it yourself using a plunger. However if you can not, you need assistance fast. Let’s face it, a blocked or overflowing toilet or sewer is something we ever wish to see, or smell!

Whether it’s the ensuite sink that won’t clear, or a clog in the shower, or worst of all, sewage running down the hall or across your garden, our same day Wollongong plumbers will efficiently identify the obstruction and unclog it so that life can get back to normal.

In the rare case that our plumbers can’t get the clog completely cleared or more comprehensive repairs are needed, our team will find a temporary solution to get you through until we return.

Can I unclog the drain myself?

If you have a plunger you can try to break up the clog in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won’t plunge away, please don’t use chemicals as they rarely get the job done properly and the chemicals can damage the drains.

Don’t let a clogged pipe send your day down the tubes. Ring us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Go Without Hot Water

Hot Water Tank Issues

We tend to take our hot water for granted, until it is not functioning properly. Need to put mucky kids in the bath? Deperately need a good soak to warm up after a wintery day? Got a pile of of dishes to finish up? It’s a pain to have a proper clean up when the water is lukewarm.

If the hot water isn’t up to standard, you want it to be fixed as soon as possible. From blown elements, to faulty thermostats, to leaking cylinders, we have seen everything and can rapidly identify the problem and get it fixed.

Leaks in your hot water system can cost a huge amount, and can cause serious damage to your house. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating often accounts for about 30% of the average household’s power bill, so a leak can cause major damage to your wallet very swiftly.

When you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in your hot water system, ring our Wollongong emergency plumbers straight away. We will get the hot water working again quickly. If you find a lot of water leaking, turn off the water at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the cylinder is not able to be overhauled, our reliable team can help pick the most suitable option for your household requirements, budget and location. If your whole system is old and deteriorating, our plumbers can arrange for improvements at a time that works for you as well.

Burst Pipes Solved Promptly

From the small fresh water pipes in the walls and ceilings, to the big sewage pipes in the ground, most of the pipes in your residence are tucked away out of sight and out of mind. We don’t even think of them until there’s a problem.

Ususally we do not even think of them. Not until there’s a problem, and suddenly you are looking at a pool of water, or worse yet, sewage. And now you urgently need it resolved immediately, to minimise damage to your residence, possessions and health.

Our emergency plumbers are prepared to be on the scene quickly, so call our plumbers as soon as you locate a burst pipe or leak of any type. You can reduce further leaks by turning the water to the home off at the mains tap if required.

How did the pipe burst?

Pipes can deteriorate and start to leak for a variety of reasons. If you own an older home, they might simply be aged and dilapidated. If you live in a very cold region, they might have frozen and ruptured. In a newer residence, there may be an issue with how the pipes were installed. Underground seals might have been grown into by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

Once they are at your home, our urgent plumber will locate the problem and expeitiously repair the leak or burst pipe. They can also assess the rest of your pipes if advised to look for other damage.

Tapware Leaks Sorted

Do you own a tap that won’t turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cupboards, or is simply broken?

Over the years, we have learned that even a dripping faucet can be a serious irritation. Something that can go unheard in the hubbub of every day life suddenly sounds like someone playing the bongos in the wee hours, destroying your sleep.

As well as keeping the everyone awake, a leaking tap can put a big hole in your budget as well, especially if it is hot water. Do not let the bills rise even higher, or maybe even cause damage to your house, contact our 24 hour plumber straight away.

From replacement washers to completely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers have everything they need in the vans to stop your leak. Our plumbers carry a small selection of basin and sink faucets to choose from if you need a new one, or can put in a temporary one if required.

As well as providing Wollongong with emergency plumbing of all types, our plumbers are available for general maintenance and installation work. Night or day, no job is too great or minor.

How can I stop the dripping noise temporarily so I can get some sleep?

If it is not aggravating enough to need repairing right now, you can try putting a folded cloth or sponge underneath it to diminish the sound. Or knot some twine around the faucet spout long enough to touch the base of the sink, so that the drips slide down instead of falling.
