Emergency Plumbers: FAQ

What do I do when a plumbing disaster strikes?

What do you do when a plumbing disaster strikes? The very first thing is to make sure it's safe, and hopefully not getting even worse. Electricity and water don't play well together safely, so if you need to, turn the electricity off at the power panel.

If there is still water leaking, turn off the water to the appliance or fixture if you can, or go straight to the main water valve for your property. If you are unable to locate the water valve to turn off, then you could try turning on all the cold water taps inside and outside the home to depressurise the pipework and reduce the leak.

Once you have stopped the problem from getting worse, give our emergency plumber a call, at any time of the day or night. They’ll be there quickly to solve the issue.

While waiting for the plumber to arrive, remove any important things close to the leak, and mop up any water or position a container to catch the drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the hot water heating as well.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

The water main shutoff valve is usually found on the property perimeter near the road, under a blue or black cover. You may know it as the toby, stopcock or isolated valve. Shutting this off can save your house from further flooding or damage to the hot water cylinder.

The toilet has its own tap alongside the toilet.

Blocked Drains Hassles

Our Higgins urgent plumbers understand that a clogged drain can be a major health risk that needs attending to right away. That’s why we have our emergency plumbing service.

A clogged drain is a serious problem, especially if it involves sewage. If you’re lucky, you can fix it with a plunger. But if you can not, you need assistance quickly. Let’s face it, a blocked or overflowing toilet or sewer is something we ever wish to lay eyes on, or smell!

Whether your toilet is overflowing, your sink will not empty, or your stormwater drain is flooding the garden, we’ll arrive at your abode rapidly to solve the issue. Our experienced plumbers will get the water running where it is meant to go and clear away the mess.

All our vans are well equipped, so we can usually fix everything right then and there. In the rare case that we can’t, we will temporarily resolve the issue to minimise further damage and return with what is needed as soon as we can.

I have a plunger, can I unclog it myself?

If you have a plunger handy you can attempt to clear the blockage in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won't plunge away, please don't use chemicals as they rarely get the job done properly and the chemicals can damage your pipes.

Do not let a obstructed drain ruin your day. Ring us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Go Without Hot Water

Hot Water System Problems

We usually don’t think about how heavily we depend on easy quick hot water until it is not available anymore. Just finished in the garden and really need a shower? Want to take care of some dishes? The last thing you need is to turn on the water and discover it’s cold.

When your hot water has fallen short, give our plumbers a call. We’ll be there swiftly to diagnose the issue and get it resolved. From heating elements to defective thermostats to leaking cylinders, our plumbers can sort them out and get you back to normal life.

Leaks in the hot water system can cost a huge amount, and may cause serious damage to your residence. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for about 30% of the average home’s power bill, so a leak can cause significant damage to your wallet very rapidly.

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

If your cylinder isn’t able to be overhauled, our reliable plumbers can help pick the best solution for your household needs, budget and area. If the whole system is old and worn out, we can schedule improvements at a time that suits you as well.

How did the pipe fail?

Pipes can fail and begin to leak for a variety of reasons. If you reside in an older home, they might simply be old and dilapidated. If you live somewhere very cold, they might have iced up and cracked. In a new home, there may be an issue with how the pipes were installed. Subterranean seals may have been grown into by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

Once our after hours plumber is present, they will identify the problems and repair them in a expeitious and professional manner.

From Washers to Full Tap Replacements

Tap Issues Fixed

Do you own a tap that won’t turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cabinets, or is simply defective?

Many customers over the years have mentioned how aggravating it can be to live with a dripping or busted tap. You might not even hear the drip during the daytime, but in the wee hours when it’s echoing around your home like a herd of stampeeding wildebeest, all of a sudden it’s a sigificant problem.

Not only is the sound frustrating, but a dripping or leaking faucet can escalate the bills into orbit, especially if it is the hot tap. Do not waste money and potentially cause expensive damage to your home, call us now.

From replacement washers to completely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers carry everything they might need on hand to halt that leak. We carry a small selection of basin and sink faucets to choose from if you require a replacement, or can install a temporary one if required.

From emergency plumbing to non-urgent maintenance, there is no job too great or minor for our Higgins plumbers. Not only can we repair your leaking taps, the team also offer a broad range of other plumbing services.

How can I stop the dripping sound temporarily so I can get some peace and quiet?

If it is not aggravating enough to need fixing right now, you can put a folded cloth or sponge beneath it to dampen the noise. Or knot a length of twine around the tap aerator sufficient to rest on the bottom of the sink, so that the drips run down instead of falling.
