Frequently Asked Questions - Start Here

FAQ: Emergency Plumber

What do I do when a plumbing calamity strikes?

Safety first! Electricity and water do not play nice together, so turn the electricity off at the breaker box if needed first.

If water is leaking, turn off the water at the nearest valve and then at the mains tap outside. If you cannot find the main shutoff valve or a tap to the fixture, then turn on the cold taps inside and out to depressurise the pipework and reduce the leak.

Now give our on call plumbers a ring, any time day or night. We’ll be at your home as soon as we can to save the day.

While you wait for our plumber to arrive, start cleaning up any water, position a bucket to catch drips, and remove valuable possessions from the area. If the house water is turned off, also switch off the heating for the hot water.

Help, I do not know where the main water valve is!

The main shutoff valve is generally found on the boundary near the road, typically under a blue or black plastic cover. You may know it as the water toby, stopcock or isolated valve. Turning the water off can protect your home from more flooding or damage to the hot water cylinder.

Remember, a lot of appliances and fixtures have their own isolating taps also.

Can I unclog the drain myself?

If you have a plunger, it is worth trying to clear the clog yourself. We recommend using a plunger that has a long handle, especially 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 cause damage to your pipes.

Don’t let a clogged pipe ruin your day. Call 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 items stored in the hot water cupboard. Do not let hot water disasters harm your wallet, get them resolved asap.

When you realise the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in your hot water system, call our Portsmith emergency plumbers immediately. We will get your hot water flowing again promptly.
