Sooner or later, a home owner will have to deal with plumbing problems. While high quality and well maintained plumbing systems lower the frequency of having to deal with plumbing issue, such problems—the more common ones in particular—will still pop up for one reason or another. Among the more common plumbing problems in Sydney that you have to deal with straight away include the following:
A leaky tap is one of the most common household plumbing issues, one which can easily be fixed by any home owner with the proper tools. However, you still have the option to call a professional plumber if you’re too busy to replace the leaky tap yourself.
A blocked drain is a problem that must be dealt with as soon as possible, because it can cause more serious problems, including water damage, if left unattended. When you hear a gurgling sound coming from the drains or toilet, you have a clear sign that you have a blocked drain. Detecting a blocked drain early is good, but if early detection doesn’t happen, you will still have to remove the cause of the blockage. In most cases, professional plumbers can easily deal with blocked drains. A professional plumber will likely use a plumber’s snake or a high pressure jetting machine to remove the blockage. They may also use CCTV equipment if a blockage persists so they take a much closer and deeper look at the problem.
Burst or leaking pipes
If there’s a plumbing problem that more than qualifies to be a plumbing emergency, it’s a burst or leaking pipe. Lucky for you if the burst or leaking pipe is somewhere you can see, not buried behind the walls or underneath the ground. In any case, you have to find the main water supply valve and turn it off to prevent flooding and the resulting water damage. Only professional plumbers are qualified to locate the problem if you suspect it’s behind a wall or under the ground, and only they should perform the appropriate repairs, like digging up the part of the drywall or the ground where the leak is replacing the affected pipes.
Toilet cistern flushing problems
When your toilet is not flushing properly, there must be something wrong with the cistern mechanism itself. It could be a faulty valve or seal, or there could be a leak. This one of the more common household plumbing issues, and the best way to deal with it is to call in a professional plumber. Just make sure to turn off the water supply to the cistern before calling a professional plumber.
One concern about a gas leak is the wasted gas and money, but that is the least of your problems. Gas leaks are extremely dangerous and can put your entire family in harm’s way. Once you detect a gas leak—mainly because you can smell it in the air—shut the gas supply off immediately. Only professional gas fitters in Sydney should be allowed to fix gas leaks, and no one else.
Water heater leaks
When you find a pool of water underneath the tank of your water heater, you have on your hands a water heater leak. In most cases, that could only mean water heater replacement, a job that only qualified plumbers in Sydney can do properly.
