Frequently Asked Questions
When should I hire a plumber?
You should consider hiring a plumber whenever there’s a problem with your water supply, and you’re not able to fix it yourself. Even if the job seems like a quick fix or a minor task, and especially if you’re renting, it’s worthwhile calling in a professional to handle the work for you. The peace of mind is always worth it.
A few common scenarios for hiring a plumber include: blocked kitchen or bathroom drain pipes, leaking or dripping taps, burst pipes, replacing kitchen, bathroom or laundry sinks, any issues with your hot water service, burst water pipes underground, blocked sewage systems, and the list goes on. If you’re unsure, it’s best to call your local professional plumbers.
I don't see my plumbing problem on your site, can you still help?
We can cater to almost every plumbing issue. Typically we only list the common concerns and problems on our website. If you can’t find your problem listed, feel free to call us directly on (03) 9776 9411 and we will help you or point you in the right direction.
I have a water leak. Should I turn off my water?
In most cases you should turn off your water. Turn off the local source first (for a leaking toilet, turn the water tap off at the wall). If the issue persists, then you should turn off your water mains.
If you have an interior water leak, you can risk water damage to flooring, walls, timber work and paint, not to mention furniture and other personal belongings. If you have an external water leak, be aware that this can damage the foundations to your house if extensive.
Once you’ve turned the water off, clean up as much of the spillage as possible using paper towels, towels & sponges. This will help avoid water dampening & potential mould issues down the track.
How often should a gas heater be serviced?
It depends on how old the gas heating unit is, but a good rule of thumb is that most types of gas heaters should be serviced a minimum of every two years. These checks should be undertaken by a licenced gasfitter, who will also test for potential carbon monoxide spillage. This includes all central heating units, space heaters, wall units and gas log fires.
Installation & Service of Gas Heaters
All gas heaters must be professionally installed and serviced by a licensed & qualified gasfitter. An untested or unsafe heater can run the risks of starting a house fire or causing pollution to your home through the leaking of dangerous fumes including carbon monoxide.
Why do I keep running out of hot water?
If you find your household is constantly running out of hot water, especially when your daily consumption levels are the same, there may be issues with your hot water service. These could point to a thermostat malfunction or an aged system not performing etc. Quite often it’s a simple fix, however hot water servicing issues should always be handled by a professional. We are able to assist with both hot water unit repairs and replacements.
Why does my drain keep blocking?
If you have tried an at home drain cleaning solution or method, and your drain still keeps on blocking, the problem could be bigger than a food blockage, grease, soap or hair.
Flushing toiletries such as napkins, sanitary pads or other objects (cigarette butts, condoms, toys) can lead to larger blockages in the drain pipes. From an external perspective, tree roots or fallen leaves are another common cause of blocked drains. Although these blockages tend to happen much further down the drain pipes. We can assist in investigative works and rectifying these issues.
Gas, electric, solar hot water heater or heat pump, which one is better?
To determine which hot water system is better to buy, it will really come down to your personal requirements for the system. An electric hot water system will often be cheaper to purchase outright, but may cost you much more in general running costs, primarily due to high energy prices.
Gas hot water services often come with energy efficient star ratings and are cheaper to run than those units powered by electricity. Solar hot water heaters are the environmentally friendly heating system option. Solar units have lower running costs in the long run. However, the initial system purchase & installation can be expensive.
Can I replace my own hot water heater?
Any works involving altering gas or electrical should be carried out by a licenced professional and we would not recommend doing any replacements yourself.
Why won't my tap stop dripping?
There can be a few different causes of a dripping tap, one of the most common being the need to replace the washers.
