FAQ: Urgent Plumbers

I've got a plumbing emergency, what do I do?

What do you do when a plumbing emergency hits? The very first thing is to ensure it's safe, and hopefully not getting worse. Electricity and water don't combine safely, so if you need to, turn the power off at the power box.

A lot of appliances and fixtures have service valves that you can turn off. For example, the toilet will have a valve below or beside the cistern. If you can’t locate a valve, or that does not stop the leak, then turn off the mains water shutoff valve to stop all water to your house.

Once that is done, give our team a call, no matter what the day or time is. We will be there shortly to resolve the problem.

While waiting for our emergency plumber to arrive, remove any important things, wipe up any water, and position a container to catch any drips. You should also turn off the hot water heating if the main water is turned off.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

You might know it as the stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This valve is generally positioned on the property perimeter near the road, usually under a blue or black plastic cover.

Remember, many appliances and fixtures have their own isolating taps also.

Blocked Drains Issues

Our Gumlow same day plumbers realise that a clogged drain can be a serious health hazard that needs attending to immediately. That is why we provide our urgent plumbing service.

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

Our vans are well equipped to resolve any drain emergency. Regardless of whether there is a toy blocking the toilet, a clog in the shower, or something has gone terribly wrong with the sewage pipes, our on call plumbers will get everything flowing again.

Our vans are well equipped, so we can normally fix everything on the spot. In the rare case that we can’t, we will temporarily resolve the complication to prevent further damage and return with what is required as soon as possible.

Can I use a chemical drain cleaner?

If you've got a plunger, it's a good idea to try to unblock a blockage yourself. We suggest using a plunger that has a long handle, especially for the toilet, so you can stand back out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not recommended as they seldom work well and can damage your drains.

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

Leaks may also cause a lot of damage to your residence and to things stored nearby. Don’t let hot water problems empty your pocket, get them fixed promptly.

When you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in your hot water system, ring our Gumlow urgent plumbers as soon as you can. We’ll get the hot water working again promptly.

Why did the pipe fail?

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

Our after hours plumbers can diagnose and fix the burst pipes or leaks promptly and precisely.
