Frequently Asked Questions - Important

Emergency Plumber: FAQ

I have a plumbing emergency, what should I do?

What should you do when you find a plumbing disaster? Safety first! If there is water anywhere near electrical outlets or appliances, the very first thing is to turn off the power at the power box. Then, try to minimise any more leaking or flooding.

If water is leaking, turn off the water at the nearest isolating valve or at the mains valve outside. If you can’t locate the water main shutoff valve or a tap to the fixture, then turn on the cold taps inside and out to help depressurise the pipework and minimise the leak.

Once you have stopped the leak from worsening, give our emergency plumber a ring, any time of the day or night. They will be there promptly to solve the issue.

While waiting, remove any significant items close to the leak, and mop up any water or position a container to catch any drips. If you’ve turned the mains water off, also switch off the heating for the hot water as well.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

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

It’s also called an isolating valve, toby or stopcock.

Blocked Drains Fixed

Our Charnwood after hours plumbers understand that a blocked drain can be a major health hazard that needs fixing immediately. That’s why we provide our emergency plumbing service.

Obestructed drains can be a major health hazard, especially when sewage is involved. If you’re lucky you can fix it on your own with a plunger and a little know-how. If you don’t have a plunger, our emergency plumbers can be there quickly to get the drains cleared.

Whether it is the laundry sink that won’t drain, or a blockage in the shower, or worst of all, sewage running down the hall or across the yard, our urgent Charnwood plumbers will efficiently locate the problem and fix it so that life can get back to normal.

In the rare case that we can’t get the obstruction completely removed or more comprehensive repairs are required, our team will find a temporary solution to keep you going until we come back.

Can I unblock the drain myself?

If you have a plunger, it's a good idea to try to remove a blockage yourself. We suggest a plunger that has a long handle, particularly for the toilet, so you can stay back out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not suggested as they seldom do a good job and can damage the drains.

Don’t let a blocked drain ruin your day. Call us now!

If you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in your hot water system, call our Charnwood emergency plumbers as soon as you can. We’ll get your hot water flowing again quickly.

Emergency Plumber Ready

Burst Pipes Fixed Quick

From the small clean water pipes in your walls and roof, to the large sewage pipes underground, most of the pipes in your residence are hidden away out of sight and out of mind. You do not even think of them until there is an issue.

Most of the time we never even think of them. Not until something goes wrong, and all of a sudden you’re looking at a damp patch, or even worse, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be repaired asap, to minimise damage to your residence, possessions and health.

As soon as a leak is discovered, give us a call, and our emergency plumbers will be on the road rapidly. We’re ready to take your call any time. Before they get there, it could be a wise idea to turn off the main water valve to the property to minimise further flooding.

How did the pipe start leaking?

Pipes can fail and start to leak for a variety of reasons. If you reside in an older house, they may simply be old and past their use-by. If you live in a very cold region, they might have iced up and ruptured. In a new house, there may be an issue with how the pipes were installed. Underground seals might have been invaded by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

Once the urgent plumber arrives, they can identify the issues and fix them in a quick and professional manner.

We Have You Covered

Taps Not Working?

Do you have a problematic tap? A faucet that will not turn on or off properly, drips, or is just straight up broken?

A lot of customers over the years have told us how annoying it is to live with a dripping or busted faucet. You might not even be aware of the drip during the day, but in the wee hours when it is reverberating throughout the house like someone practicing the drums, all of a sudden it is a sigificant issue.

It is not only vexing drips though. Leaks can run up the water bill, and also your power bill if it’s the hot water. Not only that, if water is getting down into the cabinetry or onto the floor and causing damage, that little tap leak can end up putting a huge dent in your wallet.

From replacement washers to completely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers carry everything they might need in the vans to stop that leak. The team carry a small selection of basin and sink faucets to pick from if you need a replacement, or can put in a temporary one if needed.

From emergency plumbing to non-urgent maintenance, there is no job too extensive or small for our Charnwood plumbers. Not only can we repair your leaking taps, we can also offer a wide selection of additional plumbing services.

Why is my tap dripping?

If it is not annoying enough to warrant repairing right now, you can try putting a folded tea towel or sponge beneath it to minimise the racket. Alternatively knot a length of string around the tap aerator long enough to rest on the base of the sink, so that the drips run down instead of falling.
