FAQ - Emergency Plumbers

Help, I have a plumbing emergency!

What should you do when you find a plumbing emergency? Safety first! If you find water anywhere close to electrical outlets or appliances, the immediate first step is to turn off the power at the breaker box. Then, try to minimise any more leaking or flooding.

Many appliances and fixtures have service valves that can be turned off. For example, the toilet will have an isolating tap below or beside the cistern. If you cannot locate a valve, or that doesn’t stop the leak, then turn off the mains isolating tap to cut off all water to the home.

Once you have stopped the leak from worsening, give our emergency plumber a call, any time of the day or night. We’ll be there promptly to solve the issue.

In the meantime, start wiping up any water, put a container to catch any drips, and clear away important things from the affected area. If the house water is turned off, also switch off the heating for the hot water.

I do not know where the main water tap is!

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

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

Blocked Drains Issues

Our Downer after hours plumbers realise that a clogged pipe can be a serious health hazard that needs fixing right away. That is why we have our emergency plumbing service.

Clogged pipes can cause damage to your abode, or create a health hazard very quickly. Sometimes, you may be able to clear the block yourself with a plunger. If that isn’t possible though, you need a plumber there rapidly to clear the blockage so life can get back to normal.

Our vans are well equipped to resolve any drain problem. Whether it’s a item blocking the toilet, a clog in the shower, or something has gone terribly wrong with the sewage line, our on call plumbers will get everything flowing once more.

All our vans are well equipped, so we can normally fix everything right then and there. In the rare case that we can’t, we’ll temporarily solve the issue to prevent further damage and get back with what is required as soon as possible.

I have a plunger, can I fix it myself?

We endorse attempting to clear minor clogs using a plunger if you have one. However, if you do not have a plunger, or it doesn't clear the clog, we do not suggest chemicals as they seldom do a good job, and may even cause more damage to the drains.

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

Don't Go Without Hot Water

Hot Water Problems

You regularly do not think about how frequently we rely on effortless quick hot water until it is not there any longer. Just finished in the garage and really want a wash? Want to finish up some dishes? The last thing you want is to turn on the water and find it’s lukewarm.

When your hot water has fallen short, give us a ring. Our plumbers will be there quickly to diagnose the problem and get it resolved. From heating elements to defective thermostats to leaking cylinders, our team can sort them out and get you back to normal life.

Leaks in the hot water system can cost a huge amount, and can cause serious damage to your property. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for about thiry percent of the usual home’s power bill, so a leak can cause serious harm to your wallet very rapidly.

If you discover the water is too cold or hot, or there is a leak in your hot water system, call our Downer emergency plumbers as soon as you can. We’ll get your hot water flowing again quickly. If you find a lot of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the cylinder is not repairable, our helpful plumbers can help pick the best option for your household needs, budget and area. If the whole system is past it’s use by date and deteriorating, we can schedule improvements at a time that suits you as well.

Burst Pipes Solved Quick

From the small clean water pipes in the walls and ceilings, to the big sewage pipes in the ground, the majority of the pipes in your house are concealed away out of sight and out of mind. You do not even think of them until there’s a problem.

Normally you don’t even think about them. Not until something goes wrong, and all of a sudden we’re looking at a damp patch, or worse yet, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be sorted out asap, to minimise damage to your home, belongings and health.

Our emergency plumbers are prepared to be on the scene quickly, so call our plumbers as soon as you locate a burst pipe or leak of any type. You can reduce further leaks by turning the water off at the mains tap if required.

Why did my pipe fail?

There are a range of reasons why pipes and taps might start to leak. If you reside in a extremely cold region, they might have iced up and split. They may simply be aged and past their use-by. They may not have been adequately sealed when the home was built. Tree roots may force open subterranean junctions.

Once our same day plumber arrives, they will locate the problems and fix them in a speedy and expert manner.

All Taps Handled

Taps Not Working?

Do you have a faucet that will not turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cabinets, or is simply defective?

We’ve seen an assortment of tap problems over the years, and know that even a small drip can sound like a woodpecker in the wee hours when you’re trying to sleep. What was a trivial irritant, can all of a sudden be a dire plumbing emergency.

Not only can it keep the household awake, a leaking tap can send your power bill though the roof as well, especially if it’s the hot water. Do not let the bills increase even higher, or possibly cause damage to your house, contact our on call plumber right away.

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. We carry a modest selection of basin and sink faucets to choose from if you require a new one, or can put in a temporary one if required.

From large to small, our Downer emergency plumbers can do it all. As well as taps, we provide a wide range of emergency and general plumbing services.

Can I stop the dripping noise temporarily so I can get some rest?

Find a length of twine of some type, and knot it onto the faucet spout so that it drapes down to the bottom of the skink or basin. The drips will run along the twine and flow off quietly.
