Types of Plumbing Emergencies

Blocked Drains

  • Kids (or grown ups) leave a face washer over the plug hole in the shower and stay in there so long the water has nowhere to go other than leak through any crack it can find as it can’t go down the drain.
  • Hair blocking up your basin or shower waste.
  • Blocked sewer or drain discharges outside in the back yard or even worse, in the shower, or bath or over the top of the bowl (poonami!!).
  • Flooding in the back yard can also be a blocked stormwater drain, eventually the drain becomes so blocked the water can’t pass through to the council’s drain and away from your property causing a swimming pool or lake in your yard.

Broken & Burst Pipes

  • Raining on the inside (water pipe, waste pipe, flooded shower) leak from upstairs to downstairs with water coming through your ceiling or light fitting.
  • Gardening accidents (damage to water pipes due to vigorous gardening -shovel or pick through pipe), or water and waste pipes leaking
  • Car goes through garden tap, fire hydrant, hose reel Car crashes, reverses into garden tap and water goes everywhere.
  • Pipes corrode or joins fail over time. Leaks in walls, concrete, under house, in roof space etc where you can see water leaking from your outside wall or pouring out from under your house.
  • A soggy patch, or large puddle growing  in the front yard, often a burst pipe below the ground.

Hot Water Systems

  • No hot water: pilot outage or element or thermostat failure.
  • No hot water: you’ve got a burst cylinder.
  • Running pressure and temperature relief valve (more than a bucket a day means you need a new valve, less than a bucket the relief valve is doing its job by relieving the pressure in the cylinder during the heating cycle).

Toilet Emergencies

  • Blocked toilet.
  • Cistern won’t flush (internal fault or no water supply to same).
  • Cistern running into the bowl (internal fault).

Gas Leaks

  • You smell gas and call your gas company, they turn off your gas until a licenced plumber rectifies the fault
  • Gas leaks are serious and if not rectified can cause fires
  • Don’t ask your plumber to turn your gas back on until your leak has been fixed.

Info that helps us

With any plumbing emergency , you can help us by having information ready for us.

  • what is the emergency?
  • is it located inside or outside?
  • is it gas, water, sewerage, or septic?
  • A photo can help. This can be emailed or sent through to the text line. But we understand that in an emergency can’t always be supplied.

Providing this information enables our plumber to let you know what they can do for you; especially if you require an estimate of cost.
